Rated 4 out of 5 by Doughbuy Great food options, but rooms fall a bit short
First thing you realize when you come to the W is parking and pick-up/drop-off around work hours is crazy. Much cheaper to find a lot close to the hotel and park (and much greater chance of someone breaking into your car). The check in area is pretty interesting, a few stand-alone desks, and to the right is the living room which is a pretty cool place for drinks and food. BLT steakhouse which is attached also has some of the best steak in Atlanta... and there's another bar upstairs that's never open when I'm there. The rooms are decently appointed although the TV's are a bit small, and so is the bathroom area unless you get upgraded, which for 100+ night a year platinum is only hit or miss. The 16th floor pool is nice, as well as the gym.

Even when not a guest, the staff at the W Downtown makes you feel at home and are incredibly helpful. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in downtown Atlanta.

Man! I cant express the excitement, appreciation and love I have endured while staying in this hotel. I don't think I will be staying at another hotel anytime soon if it is not the W hotel its not for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Striplett71 Just a few recommendations.
Upon arriving for check in, although several staff members were present, I stood for several minutes waiting to be serviced.
An explanation of charges associated with my stay were not presented; so. I received an alert in the middle of the night that I had been charged an additional amount. It was not until my departure & inquiry that I was given an explanation.
Rooms near the elevator. Room 701. Not a good idea. I was startled by the noise coming from the elevators as people exited and waited to get on; this was all night long.
Valet, I love valet. But it took nearly 30 minutes to receive my vehicle. I was not told of the option to call ahead, maybe that wasn't an option.
However, the bed was fabulous, the room itself was all around fabulous. The location was perfect for the events we attended, we were able to walk and the weather was just beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nassy Beautiful Hotel and Staff was amazing
This was my first time in ATL and the W made my experience well with it. Staff was professional, helpful, and friendly. Dining experience at the BLT was great and the bar lounge had the perfect relaxing mood/ambiance.
I would definatly take a second trip to ATL and stay at the W.
Great Job and than you for a great experience!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rosemary17 Nice stay w/ a couple of downfalls
Our room was lavish and comfortable. However, when we arrived back after an evening out and called room service they were kind of snooty. We asked for champagne and the attendant let us know it was already in the refrigerator with an attitude. Well, the champagne and everything else in the fridge was warm, so we called and requested a cold bottle and they acted like that wasn't possible.
Also, the room was not stocked with robes, so we had to call down for those as well. Again, we were responded to with some attitude.
Aside from the champagne and the robes, everything else was great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NoDakNative Consistently terrible valet parking, great hotel
I love the location and the comfort of this hotel, but if you go, take a cab. The valet parking is consistently the slowest of any Starwood property. First time, I thought it was just a bad day for the valet, second time I was frustrated but let it slide. The third time I realized it is just the way they operate -- not caring about their customers. I called for my car before I got dressed. When I got out front of the hotel (25 minutes later) only after I asked where my car was did they hand the keys to the runner to get my car from the garage. There were NO other customers waiting and no cars sitting in front of the hotel. The W's excuse is that the valets aren't hotel employees they are contractors. Some advice for the W Atlanta Downtown -- time to get new parking contractors! The understaffed and uncaring parking people you have hurt your guests and your reputation.

Needed to cancel 3 weeks from date. They charged full room fee. Very rude customer service rep. I can understand being charged the week of event but not 3 weeks out. Won't

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ladymje Excellent Stay
We checked in on a Friday and out on Sunday. I had called to try to upgrade due to our anniversary but the hotel was full so they couldn't do that. When we got to our room there was chocolate covered strawberries and bubbly on ice!!! I thought that was a VERY nice touch to make our anniversary special even though we could not upgrade. We ate dinner downstairs at the BLT Steakhouse and it was excellent, the waiter and staff was very attentive and the food was fab! We didn't get to try the Living room bar but it looked really nice. Our massages at Bliss spa were excellent but would recommend they get a couples room instead of having to do in two different rooms. We really enjoyed our stay and the hotel was beautiful..will deff. stay again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by jenx3215 This hotel needs improvement
There is not enough lighting in the hotel. I understand it is supposed to feel club like or like a lounge but as a business professional I should e able to get work done in my room, but I could not. Also I had a lot of bags and was never offered help with them at check in or check out. Apparently there are no official bellhops, and only contract valet workers. this is not okay with the money I spend a night to stay here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SheyShey2003 I Love W Atlanta Downtown!!!
I went to W Atlanta Downtown for my 30th birthday and my stay was amazing!! I was greeted by 3 friendly faces at the Welcome Desk and told them the reason for my stay. They immediately wished me Happy Birthday and consoled me as I jokingly complained about being an old lady now. :-) The Welcome Office Manager, Tulei, made my birthday even more special by upgrading my room to a WOW suite!!! The suite was AMAZING, the Welcome Office employees were AMAZING, and my overall stay was amazing. W Atlanta Downtown has always been my favorite W in the area and I will continue to recommend it to anyone who asks. Thanks so much to Tulei and the team (I wish I got everyone's name)...you ALL helped to make My "2nd Annual 29th Birthday" a great one! I will definitely be back! :-)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Janet1Disappointed I think my expectations were too high.
I had this vision of a mommy free night lounging by the pool with my friends.
The pool was packed with children, yelling, splashing, taking up all the lounge chairs throwing their wet towels all over the floor. I thought, there goes relaxing pool time without kids! I decided to make the best of it and go for a swim. The pool was so cloudy and dirty(we named it something that I can't mention). We found dirt and sand??? by the areas where we could sit in the pool. Why there was sand no one knows... as the staff told me.
I asked the front desk if they could tell me about a few places in the area (that are about 2-3 miles away) They had no idea what I was talking about. I would think, if you are working downtown you should know your area.
The hotel room was very nice and clean. I was just hoping for an amazing above and beyond experience and it fell short.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jenice44 Beautiful Hotel
Great hotel, most the staff was wonderful, and I slept like a baby! Loved the 16th floor pool too. However, valet was the only issue. not sure if they weren't responsive or weren't notified properly. Every time before we needed to leave we made sure to call down and ask that our car be pulled up as we were about to come down. The car was never pulled out once and no one in valet knew we called down. All 3 times we had to wait for them to locate and retrieve our vehicle which doesn't seem tedious until your reminded its 100 degrees outside while fully dressed for an outing. It would be different if it was just once but it was every time. The hotel is valet only so we were forced to wait which just got a little annoying. Other than that the stay was great! Will stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Denise1908 Best hotel for a fun night
I booked this hotel for my sisters birthday as part of her surprise and we all loved it. I put in the booking info that it was my sister's bday&when we got to the room there was a really nice note (they even spelled her unusual name right lol), champagne, and a dessert in the room!!! How sweet and thoughtful! We were so surprised and it was a great start to the trip. The room was spacious and beautiful but like the other reviews mentioned it's really dark so good luck with doing your make up anywhere but in the bathroom or trying to get a good selfie. Lol the beds are SUPER comfortable and perfect after a night of dancing in 6 inch heels. Check in was smooth and the staff was very nice. They had a pool party with free beer which was really fun and the bar downstairs was nice. It's a great chill spot to drink&listen to music before or after the club. Just wish it was open a little later. I will say this is a party hotel so I wouldn't come with really small children or if you don't enjoy being around fun, young people and loud music in the lobby. Of course we loved it! And then we ended our stay with brunch on Sunday in the hotel restaurant and OMG was it good! You get a lot of food too. ONLY downside was the valet. They are very unorganized and we had to point out our keys to them several times. If you're on a time crunch call ahead for your car! They even brought us the wrong car one time! It was some old truck and we kindly informed him that we were in the Mercedes :) all in all GREAT weekend and I will definitely be staying here again. (Probably this weekend since I'll be coming for a wedding lol) oh and yes my SPG membership was recognized with free water & other little perks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Spinergy Beautiful hotel but valet needs work
Hotel was beautiful! We had a great time. Only complaint is the valet. The first night, we called for our car 20 mins before we needed to leave. We walk down and walk outside and our car isn't there. We asked where it was because we had dinner reservations we needed to get to. They told us it was on the way. Then after waiting another 10 mins we asked where in the world our car is. The guy asked what our room number is and we told them. He went in the room where all the keys are kept, and came back and asked what our last name was. We told them. Then he came back and asked us to come in there and show him which keys were ours. We asked why they didn't tell us they couldn't find them when we called down there as well when they told us it was coming. Needless to say, we were late to our dinner reservation. Every night after that, we would still call about 15 mins before we were going to walk down and they never had our car ready. We still always had to ask for it. Then the day we left, we just decided to walk down to get our car and not call ahead since that really didn't make any difference, and once again we had to show them which keys were ours. After staying at the hotel for 3 nights and this happened every night, it just got old quick. Other than the valet, the hotel was beautiful. Next time, we should just park the car ourselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Krystal25 WORTH YOUR MONEY!!
I stayed here in the cool corner room from Thursday June 18th through Monday June 22nd for a concert & my stay was great!. The rooms were very clean & smelled fantastic every time we entered the room. I had so many bags & I didn't have to pick up not one. The valet guys placed my bags on the carrier & took them all the way to my room & placed them in a secluded area for me. Everytime I drove in or out they opened & closed my door. I was treated like royalty even though the hotel was packed!. This is a great hotel I DEFINITELY recommend anyone to stay here at least once!

We were coming to spend some quality family time and celebrate our wedding! We were greeted by James who upgraded our room to a Corner Suite and had some Champagne, cookies, and milk with a very warm Welcome note sent to our room! The staff were great and the room was simply AMAZING! The hotel has everything you could want or need! And if they dont have it they will get it for you! We will Definitely be back and I promise you will not regret it! Thanks so much W Atlanta Downtown for an AMAZING honeymoon!
