I stayed at the Embassy Suites Atlanta Buckhead while attending a conference in the area. I had decided on this hotel since it was across the street from the conference site and the price was the best of my options in the area at ~$140/night AMA rate. There were some definite perks about this hotel, including a free full breakfast everyday, a complimentary social every evening including drinks, 2 pools and hot tub, free internet in the business center, and very large suite rooms. There were a few drawbacks and problems during my stay as well. First, the hot tub was so hot that you couldn't stay in it very long or at all. I'm all for a good temperature, but not a few degrees below boiling. Second, the complimentary shuttle will take you to a location, but not wait for you if you are just going in to pick up something. One of my nights I took the shuttle to McDonalds and asked the driver to wait for ~2 minutes while I picked up my order. He was accomodating to my request. The next night when I asked to do the same thing with Wendy's, I was told no and that this was not the policy of the hotel. I did state that it was ridiculous that I would need to call the shuttle back for a 2 minute trip, but they would not accomodate my request. Third, the room service selection is very poor. The food was great that you could order, but when you are there for more than a week eating the same selection over and over again gets tiring. And even though they do have a restaurant on site, it was very, very expensive. Since there was no other option in the hotel, and the shuttle was out for quick meals, I needed to order room service quite often. Finally, the elevators were very slow. There were three of them, but when it was busy you could easily wait 5 minutes or more for one, especially from the higher floors. There were lots of groups staying at the hotel with various levels of activity and noise. But on the whole it was quiet, mostly because I was on one of the top floors, which helped alot. Overall, it was a good stay, though the price was a bit much. I would recommend this hotel for both families and business people alike.
