Everyone at the Hotel Effie has been exceptionally friendly and customer service focused! Unexpectedly I needed to change my hotel room. The front desk staff was so kind and accommodating! On top of that they sent their lead concierges to help me with the room move she made everything a breeze and made me feel great about the rest of my day! My husband and I are staying here for a week and we are so grateful to be experiencing some southern hospitality and fantastic luxury!! I know from executing my over-the-top incentive travel programs that keeping good employees is a challenge for every employer And it looks like the Effie Hotel is doing an amazing job! Sharon the sales manager has been awesome to work with in advance! Brad Busby I need to meet you; we share the same last name. Let’s connect when I’m here.

The hotel is beautiful. The location was excellent. Tanesha was awesome. After finding out that my husband and I were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary, we found Champagne, wine and snacks in our room. It was a welcomed surprise. Tanesha is definitely an ASSET that this establishment should retain. WE WILL BE BACK. Oct. 7-10

I was in town for a work meeting and booked my first facial treatment. Sarah was so wonderful and really made the experience stress free and so comfortable for me. Would love to come back if I get the chance.

The front desk, cleaning, and bell staff are the ones to rave about for sure, Tanesha was our favorite. These team members are patient, talented and generally uplifting to be around. A couple of places I did not have a consistently good experience. The dining room staff rushed but not to take care of the patrons. We watched other couples receive the same poor service but great food. The staff walked very quickly to gather behind the bar but not to serve the clients. The roof top bar had a tender that was not very engaging nor accommodating to charge the room. "Machines broke, maybe tomorrow." Back the next day, "Machine not fixed, maybe tomorrow." Major eye roll here.

Outstanding. Had a small hiccup with some details on the reservation but Michael the Manager went above and beyond to take care of it. All the staff were fantastic, including Andrea at the front desk, Peter at valet, Ray at The Lobby Bar, Brandon at Spa Lilliana, and Courtney at the Ovide. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I'll definitely be returning.
