I am here now, as I write. This place has had a great facelift but the rooms stink. There is heavy use of chemical air deodorizer used to try to cover the old, stale, musty and moldy smells; I have a headache and irritated eyes. I would leave this hotel if I could. We have an interior room and it...

Love going to Decatur and this hotel is perfectly situated within walking distance of main square. That is however the only positive remark that can be made. My wife and I got a room straight out of 1950s with AC that made more noise than cool air, a shower that leaked all over the bathroom, all topped by a window...

This hotel is a short walk from the MARTA Decatur Station. Many options for food within a short walking distance. Hotel had large atrium with interior rooms looking into the atrium. Rooms were nicely appointed and large. Very courteous staff! Mattress was somewhat uncomfortable (lumpy). Perhaps mattresses are due for a change. Generally speaking the room was clean though the...

We recently stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Emory University. The location was fabulous! Decatur is a darling town with delicious restaurants. It was also easy to jump in a Lyft to get to the campus. The lobby and rooms were bright, spotless and spacious. The staff was eager and helpful to recommend restaurants and shopping locations. Would definitely...

This is our second stay at this property. The staff is outstanding! From the front desk to housekeeping everyone makes you feel welcome. My husband is handicapped and everyone was attentive and strived to make sure we had a pleasant stay. The room was clean and comfortable! The location is great with lots of fabulous restaurants within walking distance.

We were only there for one night. Having a view of the interior restaurant and lobby area was a little weird, but not as noisy as I thought it would be. For me personally, the beds were too hard and the pillows were too soft. The water pressure was inconsistent. There always seems to be someone else's hair in the...

Picked this hotel to stay for the first 3 days of my meeting at CDC, with a switch to a closer hotel to CDC on day 3.

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.
