I just got back from an amazing weekend at The Glenn Hotel downtown. A friend of mine had recommended it, and I am so happy that he did! It's literally the lap of luxury, and the staff is courteous, knowledgeable, and very friendly. The rooms were very elegantly decorated, and the beds quite comfortable. We were able to dine at Maxim Prime, which is Jeffrey Chodorow's new venture, and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. This luxurious hotel is also a great value! They had a wide variety of entertaining package deals, and it's location (right across from the CNN Center) puts it within walking distance of the Aquarium, the Dome, World of Coke, etc... They offer free parking which adds to the value. We had tickets at the Fox Theater, and the front desk arranged a private car for us - nice touch. We even received $10 off when we used the code: Alisa when we made our reservation. All in all, this is a great hidden gem in a sea of chain hotels in downtown Atlanta. I give The Glenn Hotel my highest recommendation!
I started my evening on the rooftop fully stocked bar overlooking the cosmopolitan view of the Buckhead shops and city. After quenching our thirst over happy hour. We headed down to the 2nd floor where we had reservations for dinner. We feasted entreees of various steaks, tuna tartar, family style sides of savory garlic green beans, perfectly seasoned brussel sprouts, icey cold oysters, pan fried golden potatoe cakes, gooey mac-n-cheese, and homemade biscuits (that reminded me of the red lobster bisquits). The divine wine full bodied wine was the perfect touch to our meal. The service was top notch despite the fully reserved restaurant. In receiving our check we were quite surprised that we had been charged extra for butter for our$30-50 steaks. I was not able lo finish my steak tuna tartar. After the third request the server finally up my food, but forgot to close the bottom of the tartar, which has seeped into the steak box and through the paper bag, which I then had to toss the unsalvageable food.
Wonderful place to stay and we found an Angel on duty at this hotel... The rooms were fresh and spotless, as were all the facilities. This is a great airport hotel, with everything you'd look for in such a place. This was our second time to stay at this hotel and we found the same thing both times. The staff was super friendly and helpful (especially Velita), at the front desk. The breakfast is good, healthy and 'tasty' selection. The restaurant was also kept very clean. They have a great happy hour that was a nice welcome after traveling a bit. They offered a good selection of finger foods and up to three drinks for free during their happy hour. They offer a free shuttle service that’s very friendly, fast and reliable, to take you to the airport, and we were able to leave our car there free for up to two weeks while we were away. Will definitely stat here again and again. Many thanks to the staff – and again (especially Velita), who took a lot of time to look after our needs.
