Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Stylish boutique hotel in a historic building
  • Located on Peachtree Street, the main drag of Downtown Atlanta
  • Modern rooms with iPod docks and flat-screen TVs
  • Delicious farm-to-table restaurant
  • Kohler rain showerheads and Molton Brown toiletries
  • Lovely event space with floor-to-ceiling windows and a terrace overlooking Peachtree Street

Cons

  • Rooms and bathrooms are on the small side
  • Street noise can be heard on the lower floors

Bottom Line

This 127-room boutique in Downtown Atlanta is located in a historic building that was once ravaged by the deadly Winecoff fire -- but inside, it's thoroughly stylish and contemporary. Its charming lobby has fresh flowers and a cool light fixture, its restaurant serves delicious farm-to-table cuisine, its event space is lovely with a terrace and floor-to-ceiling windows, and rooms -- though on the smaller side -- are sophisticated, with modern technology. Perks like free Wi-Fi and a $1 wine tasting every evening add value, and female travelers may appreciate the women's-only floor, which includes added security and a separate entrance.

Map of The Ellis Hotel

The Ellis Hotel is located on Peachtree Street, the historic, busting artery of Downtown Atlanta. The hotel is just blocks from Georgia State University and Philips Arena, home of the Atlanta Hawks, and many museums and attractions are just a short walk or drive from the hotel.

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 it has slowly become one of the most interesting areas in the city for tourists as well as for locals. Hotels, shops and restaurants are everywhere you look, housed mostly in gleaming skyscrapers. You can enjoy a walk in the Centennial Olympic Park in the morning, stop for lunch in one the neighborhood’s great restaurants, visit the CNN Center or the World of Coca-Cola, and see a game in the Georgia Dome without even having to leave the neighborhood.
