Hilton Atlanta Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Downtown, Atlanta, Georgia

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great downtown location, within walking distance of major attractions
  • Clean and comfortable rooms with ergonomic chairs
  • 32-inch flat-screen TVs with HBO
  • Kohler bathroom fixtures and Peter Thomas Roth toiletries
  • Fine dining and lounge area at Nikolai's Roof
  • Tropical theme at Trader Vic's and Mai Tai Bar
  • Southern cuisine at Southern Elements and quick, casual fare at MarketPlace
  • Spacious fitness room with TVs on cardio equipment

Cons

  • Pricey parking fees (for valet and self-parking)
  • Daily Wi-Fi fee (except on executive level)
  • Some rooms are far from elevator
  • Some guests complained pool is small for size of the hotel

Bottom Line

With 1,242 rooms, the behemoth Hilton Atlanta features the quality amenities travelers expect from the Hilton brand. In this towering hotel the spacious rooms are contemporary (if a tad generic) and have flat-screen TVs, and all the amenities of a big hotel are present: a well-equipped fitness center, outdoor pool, tennis courts, and even a rooftop running track. Parking is expensive and there's a fee for Wi-Fi, but the downtown location is convenient.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Short walking distance to downtown Atlanta attractions and public transit

Located two blocks from MARTA -- Atlanta's transit system -- this Hilton is convenient for exploring Atlanta on foot or with public transit. Nearby attractions include the Georgia Aquarium, the Georgia World Congress Center, and CNN's headquarters. In addition, restaurants and bars are close by.

Once sparsely populated and somewhat seedy, Downtown Atlanta now draws crowds year-round. The neighborhood started as a business and financial hub (and it still is), but has become one of the most interesting areas in the city for locals and tourists. Plentiful hotels, shops and restaurants are housed in gleaming skyscrapers. Other attractions near the hotel include beautiful Centennial Olympic Park, the World of Coca-Cola, and the Georgia Dome.

  • 17-minute drive to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
  • 2-minute walk to the nearest MARTA station, Peachtree Center
  • 4-minute walk to AmericasMart, a wholesale marketplace
  • 10-minute walk to Imagine It! The Children's Museum of Atlanta
  • 12-minute walk to Centennial Olympic Park and the Fountain of Rings
  • 12-minute walk to the World of Coca Cola Museum
  • 12-minute walk to the Georgia Aquarium
  • 15-minute walk to CNN Center Complex
  • 15-minute walk to Georgia State University
  • 6-minute drive to Philips Arena
  • 7-minute drive to the Georgia State Capitol
  • 10-minute drive to the Atlanta Zoo
  • 10-minute drive to High Museum of Art
