Was really surprised at the Decatur area of Atlanta. You hear a lot about Atlanta and I've been in other areas but I found it like a college town. lots of artist shops, cute restaurants and great for just walking around. And the weather was perfect in early March!!!!

Open aired lobby leads to comfortable rooms with generous amenities. Staff is very friendly and efficient. Located in the heart of Decatur with restaurants and Marta nearby. Parking is somewhat of a hassle unless you opt for the daily paid parking garage.

Great location for a chain hotel with a quaint and charming feel. Located one block from the Decatur square where you'll find lots and lots of shops, restaurants and bars (coffee, wine, beer, etc). Our favorite was the Brick Store Pub. Staff at the hotel make you feel special with a smile and warm greeting. The Bistro in the lobby...

Upon arrival, the lobby is very modern and clean, but the rooms are dated. It looks like we stepped right back into the 80s with the decor. It was clean, but tired. The beds are comfortable regardless! The location is great if you'd like to walk up to Decatur Square. Lots of restaurant options. I found the front desk very...

The room was clean and comfortable. The location was minutes away from my destination and the breakfast was delightful! There was a slight mix-up with my reservation, but Syreeta quickly saved the day!

Love the service here. We arrived early around 10am and they kindly arranged a room for us. Large lobby with a nice courtyard. Rooms are clean. Right in the downtown of Decateur. Walking distance to the main offices in the area. A couple of cafes and restaurants within 10 mins away. Clean, decent, business hotel.

Very clean room. Ultra-friendly staff. Syreeta greeted us warmly and explained all we needed to know to make our stay comfortable. Parking is an additional $10 per night. No big deal, but good to know. The garage is clean, well-lit and convenient.

Comfortable stay at what seems to be a mainly business traveler hotel. Downstairs bar/cafe had great food and customer service was great. Hotel front desk staff was extremely helpful when checking in and answering questions.

“Inside rooms are quieter.”
