Downtown, Atlanta, Georgia

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient downtown location
  • Rooftop outdoor heated pool with chic bar
  • Artistic rooms with floor to ceiling windows
  • Popular BLT Steak restaurant and two hip bars
  • Large fitness center and luxurious Bliss spa
  • Free car service within a 2-mile radius
  • 24-hour room service
  • Pet-friendly hotel

Cons

  • Sexy open bathrooms aren't family-friendly
  • Dark rooms (despite having floor-to-ceiling windows)
  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Pricey valet parking (typical in Downtown Atlanta)

Bottom Line

The 237-room W Atlanta Downtown -- with its sexy infinity pool and dramatic design -- is a neighborhood hot spot. Branches climb up the walls in the lobby and silver mobiles hang from the ceiling. Beyond the funky and artistic design, the W has all the amenities travelers expect from a four-pearl property: a luxurious spa, large fitness center, and high-tech rooms with flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. The heated outdoor pool turned rooftop bar is popular by night, but common complaints include fees for Wi-Fi and valet parking.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Centrally located in Downtown Atlanta, near the business district and tourist attractions

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. The Georgia Dome, home to the Atlanta Falcons, and Philips Arena, home to the Atlanta Hawks, can both be found downtown, as can the Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the world.

  • 18-minute drive, or 25-minute subway ride, to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
  • 7-minute walk to Imagine It! The Children's Museum of Atlanta
  • 8-minute walk to the World of Coca Cola Museum
  • 9-minute walk to Centennial Olympic Park and the Fountain of Rings
  • 10-minute walk to the Georgia Aquarium
  • 15-minute walk or 3-minute drive (or 8-minute subway ride) to CNN Center Complex
  • 4-minute drive, or 12-minute subway ride, to Philips Arena
  • 5-minute drive, or 10-minute subway ride, to Georgia State University
  • 5-minute drive, or 15-minute subway ride, to the Georgia Dome
  • 5-minute drive, or 17-minute subway ride, to the Georgia State Capitol
  • 7-minute drive, or 9-minute subway ride, to High Museum of Art

10-minute drive, or 23-minute subway ride, to the Atlanta Zoo
