I didn't stay at this hotel but i recently visited the Studio Bar and Lounge.  I heard about this spot from Living Social; i had purchased a $25 coupon for $50 worth of food and drinks.  When we approached the hotel; there was no one outside overseeing the Valet.  I had to call into the Hotel to find out what to do.  Someone then came out to assist.  The atmosphere of the bar and lounge was really nice and the staff was as well.  We ordered our drinks and then our meal.  That's when the disappointment came.  Here we are thinking we're about to get a nice cooked meal, and then comes frozen dinners.  That's exactly how our meal tasted; hungry jack meals.  I was in disbelief. Here Atlanta trying to be the city of food and this restaurant is serving frozen meals.  They are precooked dinners and they microwave them....OMG!  The bill came up to $69; that's for 3 drinks and then my chicken dinner and my fiancee' meatloaf dinner. Though with the coupon i only paid $17, i still was highly disappointed.  They need to invest in a kitchen and/or get a near by restaurant to make/deliver the meals they plan on serving.  Visiting guest deserve way more than they offer.

First off, I didn't actually stay here or see any of the rooms.  I went to a DJ set in the courtyard followed by a friend's concert.  However, I have passed by this place for a couple years, since it was a Best Western, and was stunned at how truly awesome it is!  The hotel itself is like a revitalized Hollywood classic, from the 1920's.  Sitting in the courtyard, with it's awesome firepit/fountain hybrid, was peaceful and chic, and the service was great (we just had cocktails).  The interior of the lounge, lobby, and restrooms were also very well done.  One guest on Yelp complained that there weren't any restaurants except for an expensive Thai place nearby (Nan, which is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Atlanta).  However, if people just stroll down to 12th or 14th and Peachtree - a 5 minute walk - they'll find Ra, Twisted Taco, Re-Rah, Front Page News, Joe's, Einsteins, Tenth, Tap, Tamarind Seed, and at least a dozen other Midtown favorites...you just need to know where to look!

I've stayed in the Granada for many years in a row thanks to an annual music festival I attend every Sept./Oct.; 'bout time I wrote a review!

Overall I've had very satisfactory experiences with the hotel, both as a guest and as the host of two separate catered lunches in their downstairs meeting room. The staff has been very helpful more often than not, and despite a glitch with my room this year (despite the fact that I'd paid for my room in advance AND called ahead to let them know we would be arriving very late, they still gave my room to someone else..they made good on it the next day though, huge kudos to the manager for being so accomodating!), I'd say I'm happy with their staff. The sales staff has been great as well, helping me plan two different catered lunches (for a band and about 100 of their fans each time); two thumbs up for them as well. They could upgrade the food they offer for the price they charge (they don't allow outside food in their meeting rooms, & an average of $15+ a person for cold cut sandwiches is a bit pricey), but I suppose that's how it goes with such things.

The Granada is in the process of revamping/redecorating the entire hotel, so I won't address the need for cosmetic improvements as they are obviously well aware of that need. However, suffice it to say that these cosmetic flaws aren't big enough to really detract from the enjoyment of the rooms..peeling wallpaper here or patchy ceiling paint there aren't the end of the world.

I've stayed in several different types of rooms there over the years, from the basic bed and bathroom type of room to the two story room with kitchen, and they are all well appointed & very comfortable. I will say that the two story rooms with the bedrooms on the top floor need new AC installed upstairs; the bedrooms have skylights that let the sun (and heat) in, but have no windows or anything to let the heat out or provide cool air; it can get uncomfortably warm in the afternoon and early evening when the weather is warm. Hopefully this will be included in their revamping of the hotel.

The free breakfast and happy hour are awesome things (though charging for decent booze at a 'free' happy hour is a bit tacky); the food is good & the staff are usually pretty friendly. They do shorten the happy hour from the usual 2 hours to 1 hour when our festival crowd is in town, though, which sucks; I imagine we'd drink them dry if they stayed open for 2 hours, though *laughs*.

The location is ideal, right across from the MARTA station, and just down the street from the concert venue; the only downside is that you have to walk for blocks to find a meal.

The Granada has long been one of 2 favorite hotels for the attendees of our music fest (and is the hotel I've stayed at the most), & will continue to be so (as long as they don't send their rates through the roof once the revamp is done!); great hotel.

I really enjoyed this place. Disregard all reviews from when it was a Best Western. It is now known as The Artmore Hotel, and it is clean, well-designed and very centrally located. You'll pay half of what you'd pay for that dumpy W-Midtown which is a block or two away. Highly reccommended.

Loved staying here. We had a junior suite and only paid a bit more then we did for the one in Nashville. Service was a+ and our valet Chance, was awesome.

Guys at the front desk were friendly, polite, accommodating and answered everyone one of our questions.

The room was spacious, and we had enough room to spread out and between four girls you could imagine all the crap we had!

The one beef I do have, is these hotels need more mirrors! We only had the one in the bathroom and the one over the desk!

They have their own parking here, however, it's underneath the hotel, and if you have an SUV or larger car, good luck trying to get in there, let alone backing out!

The location was superb, and right in midtown, next to thevenue we needed to be and right next to the Marta station.

Great location, dont know about parking since I used the complimentary valet.  Rooms were very nice, I dont know if all the floors are the same but I stayed on third floor and my room was 2 stories with the bedroom being upstairs.  It was a cold weekend.  We were able to heat the upstairs but down stairs stayed cold.  Bathroom a little small but manageable.  In one room you can fit 10 people it you had enough air mattresses, cause there is definitley alot of floor space as well as and sofa bed.  All the staff was great.  I am definitley staying here anytime im in Atlanta.

I really wish I could give the Artmore 4-5 stars because everything after our reservation and check in was nice, the rooms were spacious and we had a great time there but I suppose I should explain why I chose three.  This will be a bit of a novel.

When we initially made our reservation it was for a room reserved in a block.  Other guests in that block had issues with booking so we were warned by one of the friends who had signed the contract with the hotel that there might be issues and if so, to contact him as he'd already spoken to the manager and supposedly straightened it out.  He gave my name and my husband's name to the manager who put it on a room to make sure we'd get in before the cutoff date.

My husband called to book the room.  He was told they had nothing available.  When he asked about the block and room reserved, he was told they were all "released" which we knew to be inaccurate.  After a lot of text messages and both the friend and my husband calling the Artmore, it was determined that there were in fact rooms but the front desk couldn't do anything about it since only a manager could see them and eventually we were given a confirmation number and told we'd have a room.

A few days before we were set to check in, we got the email that a few others received as well asking if there was any requests we had or anything we needed.  MY husband (to whom the email was addressed) replied and said that I was having a package delivered and that it may beat us there, gave my name (our last names are different) and requested the package be held at the front desk until we arrived.

Fastforward to our travel date.  We flew in to Atlanta and arrived around 9:30AM.  We picked up a Zipcar and stopped at the hotel briefly while doing quick errands.  This was around 11AM.  We were told that our room wasn't ready but if we came back around 2, it would be.  I asked about the package and I was told that it hadn't been delivered yet but there was a note on our reservation.  There was an offer made to hold our luggage and we were given tickets to claim it when our room was ready.

We had a meetup with the couple getting married as well as other wedding guests around noon so we went off to that, completed our errands, dropped our Zipcar off and went back to the Artmore via the MARTA.  It was around 2:30.  Again we were told that a room was not available and that we could have a seat in the bar area while we waited.  We were given a guest bag that was left at the front desk but we found out through our friend's mom that they had the wrong first name written down.  Somehow our "what can we do for you?" email was addressed to my husband's correct name (Keenan) but they had "Kenny" down for the guest bags.  The bar opened early that day - per the bartender it was because they were "very busy".  Makes sense though, a lot of people waiting for rooms who'd enjoy a cool drink, be it alcoholic or non-alcoholic.  I sipped on my Coca-Cola and watched no fewer than three rooms find their temporary owners as people after us were checked in.  No big deal, I figured, we are in the air conditioning, it is nice, this area is nice and we should be in soon.  This was around 3:30PM.

Fifteen minutes later, a man came in who had apparently made a reservation through Travelocity.  He was told his reservation had been canceled.  More guests were coming in and he was holding up the line so the front desk had him use the house phone to call Travelocity and straighten it out.  Everything worked out for him but by that point there was a bridal party who had taken over the courtyard and the bridesmaids were in the only ladies room accessible by someone without a room key (me) so after imbibing the aforementioned Coca-Cola and I needing to use the facilities, well, none were available.  That wasn't so much the hotel's fault as it was inconsiderate guests but they had no idea that it was the only bathroom and that we were still waiting on a room.  I distracted myself by checking the tracking information on the package that was supposed to be delivered there and found out that not only had it been delivered days prior but it had been RETURNED to the post office the next day as "UNDELIVERABLE AS ADDRESSED".  It was addressed to ME c/o Artmore Hotel.  My husband checked - no room yet, please sit down and wait, et cetera.  He asked about the package and was told it was "just at the post office" which is great when it is both Saturday after noon and on a holiday weekend when the post offices would be closed on Monday.

(will post part two when I can fit it all in)

If I could give this hotel a 3.5, I  would. It doesn't quite deserve a 4, but it was better than ok. Here's the deal:

-price!!!!! after taxes and fees i paid $112 for an upgraded king room and parking was only $16, which is good for the area
-the decor in the lobby, bar and outdoor courtyard is awesome. very modern and chic, and you can not beat the outdoor fire pit! love it.
-the bathtub was HUGE. i was so relaxed that i forgot to turn on the jets.
-bed was very comfy, and the room was spacious overall.

-in general, they could work on their service
-there was no valet to greet us, so we just had to leave our car parked out front
-there was no one to open the door or help us with our bags, and we struggled as the lady behind the front desk pretended we weren't there
-check out was at 12, i called to get it extended and they said only until 12:30. at 12:32 they called to say we had to leave...what the crap? never experienced this before
-while the room was chic with the cool black and white art work, and pops of red, they still could have taken it a step further. the carpet was brown, and the drapes were ugly, neither of which were fitting for a chic boutique hotel.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel if you are trying to get a swank hotel on a budget. However, if you want to go the extra mile, I think there are better options in the city, but with that said, for what I was looking for, I was more than satisfied with what I got.

This place is way hipper than I am but I still enjoyed staying here very much. That whole hipster bar and high energy dance music just isn't my thing but once I got by the check-in, everything was great. This place looks awesome and feels stylish. The flaming fountain in the courtyard is a nice touch, adding life and movement. The staff was helpful and friendly, especially the chef we met during breakfast on the club level. The room was fantastic. We enjoyed a king size bed, executive level. It was almost an efficiency, with a large counter, stocked mini-bar/fridge/snack basket, freezer and sink. The only thing missing was a microwave. The room felt new and clean and the bed was awesome. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've been in and it made me want to take it home. Despite the hotel appearing busy with wedding guests, our room was very quiet. We never heard any other guests. The bathroom was a little small (but normal for a boutique hotel) but the shower was awesome. I loved the natural light from the nearby frosted window. Keep in mind that parking costs around $15 a day and valet if free 24 hours a day (except for tip). It's a nice feature but you have to factor it into the final room price. Location was excellent - convenient to downtown Atlanta and easy on and off to the I-75/I-85.

We plan to stay here again and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants something different.

Best things about the Artmore - the location, the courtyard (pictured), the jacuzzi, the space. It's urban, it's modern and it's comfortable. It has all the things you need - a small workout suite, wifi, a fridge, microwave, coffee maker and a desk. The furnishings are not cheap and cheesy and the staff are very friendly. My room was almost suite size, with an enormous jacuzzi tub/shower. There is no restaurant, but a breakfast is served and there is a small and stylish bar. If you like intown living and want to be close to everything without either paying a fortune or sacrificing comforts, this is a good choice.

One of the MOST unexpected surprises I have had in a long time. It was absolutely perfect. If I could have moved in, I would have. We booked it as a last minute hotel on priceline, not knowing what to expect. We were in love from the second we checked in until we checked out!

This place is great.  I got a room there last night for a friend's Bachelorette party.  When I checked in, they gave me a room that was nice but a little small for a party.  They were more than happy to move me to a bigger one- and this required the guy from the front desk running to several available rooms to determine the size.  He was literally dripping with sweat by the time we moved.  The decor is nice, especially in the lounge and bar area.  The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the beds aren't great.  Also- be prepared to pay $18 per car per night for parking.  I know it's standard in that part of town, but I think it's a bit steep and they didn't tell me that I'd be charged when they took my car.  Overall, though, a good experience.  I'd go back.

I loved it too. Kudos to these folks for turning a Best Western into a kind of "poor man's W hotel", with modern boutique-style rooms and a very modern lobby and bar area (even if the outdoor courtyard seemed kind of dead) .

If you pay less than $100 for a room here, you're getting a steal. A steal!

My stay at the Artmore was wonderful. The staff was genuinely friendly and helpful. Our room was big and very comfortable. It had a kitchen which was great for a long stay (I always prefer home cooking).
The location is perfect not fare from downtown and very close to Piedmont Park.

First the good. The hotel was very clean, the courtyard was nice, and the staff was friendly. There were 2 things that were deal breakers for me. First, the bed was one of the worst I've slept on. There is no headboard and it isn't backed up to a wall. The bed backs up to a shelf at the same height which prevents you from sitting up in bed to read, watch tv, etc. also I kept hitting it during the night. It was really annoying and kept me tossing and turning all night. Also the pull out couch was impossible to sit on without sinking into the metal of the bed frame. The couch was clearly broken and it was ignored. Those were the worst things. However there are some other smaller problems that weren't as big a deal. The wall paper was peeling, paint chipping, there was a clicking sound in the bedroom all night, grout was disintegrating in the bathroom, faucets in both sinks were dangling out of place and the water temp in the shower kept changing randomly when taking a shower. It wasn't the worst hotel we have stayed in, but I've stayed in much nicer hotels for much less money and I don't think it deserves the rave reviews I've seen.

Five stars for customer service!! Beyond the amazing courtyard, and the beautiful decor the customer service was suburb. From the moment I made the reservations Steven was very helpful and patient as i had to change then several times. Once there I was looking for this eatery and became lost. When I called the hotel for directions, one of the employees came to where I was and guided me back to the hotel! How's that for excellent customer service. If you are looking for a small intimate hotel with a great staff this is the place to come. The old charm is a plus also.

I didn't stay here, but if I ever wanted a night away from home without leaving Atlanta, this might be a good choice. My friend and I had a certificate from living social to use at the Studio Bar, so we went Saturday night. The courtyard is really gorgeous, but since people were smoking, we decided to just stick with sitting inside.
While the bar itself just seems like a typical hotel bar, they make their own vodka infusions. I had a Raspberry Extravaganza martini made with some of this, and it was so good. I love real infusions rather than the typical artificially flavored vodka.
The bartender was so cool. We were pretty much the only ones there after a lady who frequents the place was kicked out for going absolutely crazy. She gave us a lot of awesome suggestions for drinks, which is how I ended up with the Raspberry Extravaganza. My friend ended up getting a chocolate martini after she described the process, and that was amazing too. It contains a lot of alcohol, but you can't tell under the chocolate milk.
There is a short menu of food ranging from hummus to brisket sliders to quiche. We got chips with salsa and guacamole. The chips looked to be straight out of the bag, and the salsa wasn't anything great, but the guacamole was fantastic. You could definitely tell which one we preferred when the bowl looked like it only ever contained salsa.
It's a short walk from MARTA too, which is awesome, and it is entirely worth going just for a drink as long as you also check out the way cool sink faucet in the bathroom.

I must caveat my review with the fact I was given a complimentary night at the hotel by a friend who works there.

Am I the only one who really likes staying in hotels? I mean, REALLY likes? Seriously, if I won the lottery, I would live in a hotel. Imagine it: they clean; they change your sheets regularly; they give you clean towels; they do your grocery shopping and cooking (vis a vis room service); if anything goes wrong, they fix it...it's really my idea of heaven. So, of course, I was eager to check out the new boutique hotel, the Artmore.

First, they offer complimentary valet, which is nice. You pull up to the front, leave your car and they take it from there. Easy breezy.

I checked in without any problems. Staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The hotel has a nice contradiction: the outward appearance is the exact opposite of the inside decor which is modern, sleek, urban.

The room itself is what I picture a very nice studio apartment in NYC to look like. Very efficient...everything within reach. Very stylish. I was in a suite, so it had a full kitchen....oven, microwave, full frig..everything. It was nicely stocked with nibbly things, libations, candles, toothbrushes and comfy robes and slippers. It was a special occasion, so the "Director of Guest Experiences" (I love this title) left a note in the room with a chilling bottle of champagne...nicely done.

There's also a cute little  bar in the lobby with a limited menu of appetizers available. This is the only thing keeping me from giving the hotel 5 stars....no room service.  There is also a complimentary breakfast buffet, but I didn't partake, so I can't review.

Again, I felt like I was in an apartment, not a hotel room. I enjoyed the experience thoroughly and will definitely recommend it to out-of-towners...conveniently located just of 75/85 by the Arts Center MARTA station and within walking distance of great restaurants (like South City Kitchen.... gratuitous work plug, sorry).

it's a little piece of NYC in the ATL.

Solid hotel ...big beds (king) ..flat screen TVs, in room bar.   Hotel bar is solid as well.  Parking is the only negative as its 20$ for parking with in/ out privileges - I don't trust the valet's either, as there was a mark on my truck after it was parked.

After catching the red eye from SFO to Atlanta on NYE day, we were excited to see family who arrived prior to us for a wedding.  We appreciated the swift check in and restaurant recommendation for lunch by the front desk.  Our room was quaint, clean and modern.  Everything we would want from a boutique hotel.  Throughout the two- day festivities, our group utilized the basement conference room.  It was perfect for a large dress rehearsal dinner.  The hotel's lounge provided the perfect atmosphere to bring in the New Year.  For $50.00, one could purchase a wristband for unlimited cocktails.  This was a bargain for NYE.  The ability to celebrate in the lounge as well as in the courtyard was great.

     The hotel was a continental breakfast in the lower level.  Scrambled eggs, grits, toast, cereal, bacon, yogurt, etc.   There was enough variety for everyone.  

      One of the biggest benefit for us was the easy access to the airport.  The local train system is a half block away from the hotel.  The route dead ends in the airport.  For $4.00/person each way, it is much cheaper than a taxi and very user friendly.  

    Overall, the Artmore Hotel treated us very well.  They were very accommodating to the wedding guests and very favorable to work with in planning the special weekend.    I would recommend this hotel to others.

Go see Erica and Ari in the bar!

Great hotel, with very old building, fully modernized without losing the character of the original building, beautiful rooms, with nice new TV's and high ceilings and crown molding. Very very tastefully remodeled. Amazing courtyard with fire pit and couches for late night drinks and relaxing.  

Spent two nights there while in town for a wedding and would highly recomend.

Artmore is right next to my work so we throw a lot of our out of town guests their way.  Everyone always says good things about them, though I've been there several times I've never stayed over night.  I trust their opinion though.

I've seen multiple rooms and all styles are classy and modern.  I am really impressed with their lofts.  A downstairs for work and play with an upstairs for sleep and shower.  Great views out of the skylights too.  Looks like they upgraded their old laminate kitchen counters to granite counters as well.

I was just there last month visiting with the staff and getting a tour when the sales manager told us that they were installing sound proofing on all windows that faced the courtyard.  I'm excited about that because my friend has dj'd there a few times so I'm hoping that means their summer party nights will resume when it's warm again.

So work or pleasure, you really can't go wrong with the Artmore.  Oh and they have some really interesting infused drinks at the bar, very worthy of drinking the terrible work day away.

I really liked this place. The location is not bad, it is within walking distance to several good bars/restaurants and the rooms are really really nice. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because of the coffee and the buffet. Almost every hotel in the continental United States offers free coffee in the room. There is Starbucks coffee available in the room but it costs about $3. The buffet is cheap but it should be free. I thought if I had to pay for it, it should be pretty good. But in reality, it's the same old buffet type offered for free at any HIE or similar type of hotel.

Baring all that, I would definitely stay there again.

There can't be a worse time to visit Atlanta than the suffocating, stifling heat of late July and early August. When I found out that's exactly when I'd be making a work trip to the city, I wasn't exactly excited. When I saw the hotels surrounding the convention center, well, I REALLY wasn't excited. Sure, there were several hotels to choose from near the convention center, but they all seemed really overpriced.

Not knowing anything about Atlanta (or about the conference hotels), I got on TripAdvisor and started reading about the downtown area.  One particularly helpful forum pointed out the convention center's proximity to the subway. The convention center was either going to be a 20-minute walk from a downtown hotel, or a 20-minute subway ride from a more exciting part of town. By now, I think you know what I chose.

I decided to stay in Midtown, a bustling area with plenty of clubs, restaurants, museums, and shopping. Here was my truly inspired choice: The Artmore Hotel.

Less than half a block from the Arts Center subway stop, the Artmore is a former Best Western which has been completely remodeled and reimagined as a contemporary boutique hotel. At the check-in desk, I was greeted with a textured wave wall, dark wood floors, stone gray walls, and sleek furniture (not to mention sweet, sweet air conditioning). All the TV sets were tuned to Turner Classic Movies. Out the window, I could see a central courtyard with chaise lounges, couches, high-top outdoor tables with barstools, and a beautiful waterfall/firepit in the center.

My room was even better. Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe on the walls. The courtyard view. TCM playing on a low volume on my TV. And this personalized note on my pillow:

Dear Megan,
We are pleased to welcome you to the Artmore Hotel!
We have prepared this room especially for your arrival.
If there is anything that would make your stay more
enjoyable, we are at your service. Just let us know!
Warmest regards,
Maria Martinez
Assist. Guest Experience Manager

Wow. In five years of work travel, I've never found a personalized note in my hotel room. Who does that?

Did I mention the Aveda bath products? The corner-mounted flat screen TV? The softest, thickest bath towels I have ever used? The huge wet bar in my room??

The Artmore hosts DJ nights in the courtyard on weekends, and the hotel bar was hopping all the time. In fact, I was a little concerned about the noise level on Saturday night when the DJ music was blasting through my window, but they (considerately) cut the volume at 10pm. Whew. My only complaint (and the one that keeps it from getting five stars) is this: the maid service was very inconsistent. I have long hair, and I'm used to seeing it all over the bathroom floor. Just not after the maid has supposedly cleaned the bathroom. I also thought it was a little chintzy to charge $3 for a packet of coffee for your in-room coffeemaker. Even if it is Starbucks coffee. I've stayed in plenty of hotels that give you the exact same coffee for no charge, but I guess they are a boutique hotel so I didn't really mind paying it (ESPECIALLY since the Artmore offers free WiFi, which many upscale hotels don't). However, I did mind fishing all the coffeemaker parts out of my sink every night after the maid had left them there (soaking? drying? getting coated in germs because those sinks are probably never thoroughly cleaned????). Ick. I'd rather not know what you're doing with my coffeemaker while I'm gone; just put the damn thing back together before you leave so I don't have to speculate about why its pieces are strewn about the sink.

Any hiccups or issues aside, the conference hotel "specials" downtown were almost all above $200 a night. At the Artmore, I was quoted $101. No kidding. Of course, that includes the "yelp special" advertised on this page, and when I actually checked my bill later I realized that the discount hadn't been applied... oh well. It was still a great deal, so I didn't bother calling them to correct my bill. That's my fault, not theirs.

I almost forgot to mention my favorite perk from the Artmore - they put together an excellent packet of information about the local area with restaurant recommendations and directions. This thoughtful packet of information really helped me to familiarize myself with the restaurants of the area, and led me to several places I truly enjoyed. This was so, so, so helpful! I can't thank the Artmore enough for helping me to get to know the area I was staying in.

Despite any issues I may have had, the Artmore was head and shoulders above any hotel I could have booked downtown. Its proximity to MARTA meant I could get anywhere I needed to go within the city, but my wonderful room meant I didn't really WANT to go anywhere else in the city! Next time I travel to Atlanta, you can bet I will be booking a room at the Artmore.

First off the location is great - was in town for business and being across from the Marta station allowed me to do without a car - the central location also was in walking distance from my business needs and also multiple restaurants.  If needed a free shuttle from Marta to the Atlantic Station complex was great.  I love this hotel,  no its not the Hilton or other cookie cutter chain - so if you are looking for that type of place don't go - but if you are looking for nice rooms, great service and a wonderful courtyard where you can work or converse with other guests then this is the place to be - I will come again without a doubt

Stayed here awhile back and recently put wedding guests here as one of the local hotels for a "destination" wedding.  They have great staff for customer service.   We also used the courtyard for an evening meet and greet before the wedding with a jazz combo and catered food and drink.  Great setting and very well done.
Would stay here again when in Atlanta.  Right on MARTA line.  Who needs  a car?
A couple of details missed here and there but they were always quick to fix what they could.  Saw note on WiFi - definitely an issues depending on room you are in.
Good eating a short walk away!

The Artmore is a cool little hotel in Midtown Atlanta, adjacent to the Arts Center MARTA station. We had a 2 BR suite for some business meetings with customers. The staff went above & beyond the call, in particular with accommodating us at the last minute. Richard Leon and the hotel staff catered our lunches and responded  to every request happily & quickly. If you're looking for an eclectic, fun, happening spot with access to all the Atlanta attractions this is your hotel. The Woodruff Arts Center, The Fox, Center Stage are all nearby. And it's even a short train ride to the Georgia Aquarium, Centennial Park, Underground, Phillips Arena, Georgia Dome and Turner Field. A good place for a get-away weekend with the spouse or for a long-term business rental. They have 1 & 2 bedroom suites with full kitchens, an open dining/living room and spacious bedrooms with king and/or queen beds. Each bedroom has its own full bath. Check it out the next time you need a hotel in Midtown.

Stayed here when I attended a 4 day conference. The hotel is adorable. Staff was extremely friendly. My room was cozy with overlooking Peachtree street. The bed was super comfy, shower was hot with perfect water pressure. The only downfall was the horrible smell of chemical cleansers when I checked in. It was extremely strong and I'm an asthmatic. They had to open the windows to air it all out.

There need to be more hotels like this.

We only stopped by one late evening to try the bar, (drinks were excellent, bartender Carl[?] was super friendly)...  but this place is beautiful. We wished we were staying more than an hour or two.  

Stunning and understated contemporary decor meets stucco, Spanish renaissance feel. All around an elegant courtyard with cozy seating and a fire pit that burns late into the night.

This is the second time I've stayed at this Best Western.  The first time was about a year ago and hotel is below average.

Now the hotel has recently been updated.  They are actually still in the process of updated parts of the hotel.  The new rooms have cool design for a Best Western.  The staff is extremely kind and helpful.

Very Clean
Big tvs
beds aren't that comfortable
great breakfast
nice shower and amenities
Fantastic rate for what you get at this hotel
Not much within walking distance from hotel

I would stay here anytime

So yeah, it sports the bones of a more economy hotel which belies its roots, but from humble beginnings the Artmore has made great strides: there are, for instance, lavish couches and a daily event that they seem to stage in their courtyard area (happy hour, perhaps? I was on my way out that day), and they are of course quite open when it comes to their love of Yelp. As of my stay, they were encouraging a heads up when you check in and they'd buy ya one at the bar.

It's a cute setup, and in a sense it's a little bit of a shame that I was fighting a cold when I made my stay: I would have rather enjoyed parking myself at the small bar and leaning into some enthusiastic chatter with the barkeep about what's happening around town. As others have mentioned, though it's pretty easy to get here, I didn't see tons else to do within walking distance. But my room, while not exactly lavish, was neat and came ready with a personalized folder from the front desk tailored to my stay. The Artmore isn't perfect, but they do a lot of the little things right. And from where I sit, that's pretty sweet.

I can only speak about the Artmore from a location standpoint, because I've never stayed here, but it's such a cute and often overlooked hotel.

I hosted an event for a professional organization that I'm a member of here at this hotel in the studio lounge, and it was wonderful. Alyse, the event manager at the hotel was great to work with, and provided us with such a great atmosphere and ensured we were taken care of from the moment our group arrived till the moment that we left.

They have a stylish lounge area, that also extends to a beautiful patio with a fire pit, which makes it great for summer or fall.

I remember many of our members were very impressed with the venue and I even had a few state that they never even knew the hotel existed or had driven by it before but had no idea how beautiful it was inside, and were more likely to come back for a hotel stay or a stop for drinks if they were in the area.

Definitely should check it out, and with how beautiful the hotel is, I can only imagine that the rooms are as well.

People and Place made for a very special event.
I used the event space for a milestone birthday celebration and got more than I bargained for.  First, I was on a tight budget but wanted to celebrate a milestone birthday in a special way.  I found this hotel space by chance and am I glad I did.
You should definitely consider this spot, I couldn't have asked for more. The sales team of Richard and Lindsey were extremely helpful.  Thanks to them, and their hard work I was able to pull off a marvelous birthday party. I can't recommend this place and more the staff here highly enough. Lindsey went the extra mile in helping me plan the food and bar and get the event taken care of. Richard was there every step of the way the night of the event to make sure it went off without a hitch. I was anxious about the event and probably a little needy during planning and setup, but they met every challenge. The entire event staff worked to make the setup sensible and sophisticated with the best of attitude and service. Whatever I needed, they made happen, or if it was out of their scope, they had answers and recommendations.  The staff seemed tireless the night of the party.  I have an enormous sense of gratitude for them, and that I found this great space. My guests raved about the hotel and the event rooms.

Friendly staff, wonderful decor and the courtyard at night is charming. The room was wonderful (stayed on the third floor) the rooms were decorated nice, very clean, had skylights in the bedroom and bathroom. The breakfast was decent for a buffet style, and the bar is small but warm and the bar tender made great suggestions and was very friendly.

I would give it 5 stars if the bed wasn't like a brick and the shower didn't go from hot to cold every two seconds.

All and all I recommend for a nice boutique feel.

Great concept... take an older property and make it chic.

* Rooms and service tend to be "upscale" when they can be
* Valet parking for $16
* Spacious room with a big kitchen area
* Nice patio area with a firepit and music for hanging out and relaxing (although it tneded toward being empty)
* Non-smoking hotel

* No actual valet, and no self-park option
* No real restaurant; you have a "cafe" with a few appetizers. Also, there's a breakfast option in the morning for an additional $7
* My toilet was barely working, and the shower didn't completely work either
* Not much else in the area in terms of restaurants, etc., except for one "fine Thai dining" establishment behind the hotel

My fiance chose this hotel to have our wedding because she fell in love with the location, wonderful courtyard and customer service.  We had visited the bar a couple of times before and always enjoyed the atmosphere and quality drinks. Here is what my now wife has to say about the Artmore:

The hotel has an "old hollywood" theme, meaning the decor is centered around popular infamous movie stars like Marilyn Monroe, Aubrey Hepburn, and Grace Kelly.  It is very "chic" with black and white as the primary colors with splashes of red and old black and white movies playing 24/7 as part of the feel.  The courtyard, however, is the most charming feature of the Artmore.  Especially for a wedding!  Trees, seeming to hug the outdoor venue have lighting that create a picturesque view as dusk turns to nightfall.  Outdoor seating makes the courtyard overwhelmingly inviting, and you never want the party to end.  The staff is exceptional, and went to every extreme to make this day extra meaningful.   I really can't say enough how perfect this venue was for a wedding, reception, or just any party.  The Artmore Hotel is a perfect place when you're looking for "just the right thing."

So there you have it.  When the bride is happy, everyone is happy.  Thanks to Jessica, and all of her staff for making everything perfect.  Highly recommended for events or just a get away.  Great location for anything Georgia Tech related and better area than downtown with excellent access to MARTA nearby.

I wanted to love this hotel. I stayed there the night before and night of my wedding, so it was really important to me to have a good experience, but the Artmore, unfortunately, fell far short of my expectations.

First, the positive: the Artmore itself is beautiful and has tons of potential to be a fabulous hotel. The outdoor courtyard is like nothing I've ever seen, and I loved sitting out there and people watching. The rooms were truly lovely and spacious -- much more room than you'd get for a similar price at another hotel.

But the service was frankly abysmal. It started when my maid of honor and I pulled up to the valet parking, with a wedding dress and an assortment of boxes, presents and heavy suitcases in tow. There were no carts and no staffers offered to help us. I tried to get one's attention but he walked away. I know he heard me.

When I checked in, the front desk staffer was less than cordial. I told him I was getting married the next day, hoping that might inspire some courtesy or an offer of help. It did not. The maid of honor and I struggled our way upstairs but finally made it into the room.

Our bed was the single most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in. Truly, it was worse than a sofa pull-out. Both my MOH and I woke up numerous times in the night. She has a back condition and was in pretty significant pain the next day.

Breakfast was mediocre, overpriced and did not come with everything we requested.

I was  hoping the bad service was a fluke, but I experienced it my wedding night as well. Anyone who's ever gotten married knows you come back from the venue with a pile of stuff, and my husband and I were no exception. And yet again, there was no one willing to help, even though there were staffers milling around. I was sort of shocked that not a single staffer bothered to offer help to a girl in a wedding dress and a groom in a tux, but that was the reality.

Truly a disappointment. I was hoping for top notch service and maybe even a congratulations or two. I got neither.

This boutique hotel is a clever combination of southern charm and modern chic.  If you don't want to stay in a chain hotel that looks the same as every other generic hotel in America, I highly recommend the Artmore.  (And my group was able to get a cheaper rate here than at the Marriott that is a couple blocks south.)  Be aware that every room is a little different, and some are quite a bit smaller than others.  I've also heard stories about a fantastically huge bathtub that's in at least one of the guest rooms.  

My absolute favorite thing about this hotel is the courtyard.  It's tree-lined and full of lots of comfy chairs and couches.  The fountain also becomes a fire pit at night.  I spent several hours outside in this courtyard both having drinks with colleagues in the evening and getting work done during the day.  Absolutely lovely.

I'd like to say good about its perfect location-- Artmore Hotel was indeed satisfying with those surrounding restaurants, all within walking distance; the High Museum of Art was definitely a go for me, and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra goodness... In fact there are too much to do around, our humble Artmore remained humble as it looked.
First walking into the hotel, nice theme, nice bar, nice house decoration. Everything in the lobby was attractive, pavilion was charming with shade from the trees. At that time I did not realize how that could be a headache for me. Our room was small but decent, lots of Atlanta travel guide books, two squeaking beds. Please wear shoes or slippers while mobilizing in the room, please do.
When the night blew in, when I was so ready to take a rest from a day of walking and tour, the noise out in the pavilion started annoying me. And that happened every night of my stay. That was how I detected the hotel's poor soundproof effect. I didn't want to know the girl next door just broke up with her boyfriend, I didn't want to know people across the room were listening to some kind of rap and opening a bottle of beer, but I had to-- it was a quarter after one, my squeaky bed kept me from falling asleep; sporadic roar of the psycho airconditioner got me night terror. Sleepless in Atlanta.
Although I did not use it, the so-called kitchen was impressive, perfect for warming up leftovers from last night, as it happens so much. Staffs around were very friendly, four stars for service. For short, Artmore is well recommanded for young travelers who have solid sleep, please consider again if you are over 50 or sleep lightly.

Beds are like concrete, really not meant to sleep on but more so your body can become numb.  There is a bar downstairs with middle aged party animals wearing leopard skin prints and mascara shotgunned on their faces.  Nothing is free in the room beside the hard beds and the thin walls.  You even have to pay for the in room coffee.  Save yourself some money and sleep on a bus bench.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Artmore Hotel for two nights during the Fourth of July weekend.  We're from Atlanta, but recently relocated, and needed a central place to crash in the city.  The Artmore was such a pleasant surprise!  I'd seen it many times when I lived in Atlanta, but, of course, never had a reason to stay there.

Almost everything about our stay was perfect.  The hotel is in a great location - across the street from the Arts Center MARTA station and within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and Atlantic Station.  The rooms are very spacious and have a wet bar area equipped with a mini fridge and sink.  There's even a courtyard area where you can lounge.  Oh, and the price - excellent!

The only downsides... Walls are kind of thin, and you can hear noise from the hallways - kind of annoying at 3:00 am.  Also, breakfast is just okay.  It was included in our rate, but it normally costs $10.  Unless it's included in your rate, skip their breakfast and go down the street to one of the local eateries.

Staff service was impeccable.  The rooms were very clean and well made up.  The hotel is very near Marta so you can get anywhere in Atlanta with a simple 1/2 block walk + train ride.  Get a multi-day pass and Atlanta is your oyster.   Leaving your car at the hotel will cost ~20/day, but will avoid lots of stress.  

Two complaints (and keeping me from leaving 5 stars) for the hotel were the showers (in both of our rooms.)  The temperature variation was so wide that you can scald yourself.  Even setting the temp at luke warm could suddenly jump to hot water that could burn you.  I ended up taking cold showers, which weren't too bad in Hotalanta.  If you have children you may want to opt for baths.

Lastly, the Wi-fi was unusable.  We could not do even basic email using it, trying on different devices.

This is my new favorite hotel in atlanta!! For the rate of this hotel and it's location, it gets five stars alone. The fact that it's super trendy is just an added bonus. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and clean. I loved the fact that it had a separate little "kitchen" area. The bathtub was huge. It's a rare treat when the tub is big enough for two to fit comfortably and who doesn't love jets??  The fresh apples and water with oranges slices in the fitness room was a nice touch. I will be back anytime I'm in town!!

Cool vibe. Courtyard with comfy seating (outside), with fire pit, was the best! Walking distance to Woodruff, High Museum and tons of great restaurants. First detractor is that it is popular for smokers. I guess it's legal since it's outside but since it's a courtyard with hotel exterior walls on 3 sides, the smoke stays trapped. Places like Starbucks will designate some non-smoking area. highly recommend that. Other detractor is the psycho shower...scalding one minute, frigid the next. But staff is great, friendly, food tasty, bed comfy, room clean. Pretty good combo!

A solid boutique hotel! Modern/renovated interior with charming courtyard/European area on the exterior. Only three stories high.

The service here is outstanding the people really make you feel comfortable with their warm accommodations. They didn't hesitate to let me check in early.

Rooms are solid, tub is huge, beds are big, and they also have a little kitchenette area with fridge, microwave, sink.

They have free wifi around the building.

Only thing to note is parking is $20/night after tax, BUT, it does come with in/out privileges.

Stayed in the Artmore over President's weekend for a wedding. Couldn't get rooms at the Four Seasons so picked the Artmore as it was very close. Overall the hotel is a little run down, but it was perfect for a couple nights, particularly as we spent very little time there.

Reserved one of the "pent-houses" on the third floor. Room was perfect since we have 5 people. Downstairs included full kitchen and small breakfast nook while upstairs had 2 bedrooms (1 king, 1 double bed.) Small bathroom, but thankfully they have large mirror downstairs so everyone could get ready at the same time.

Bar shuts down at 1am and bar staff is not the friendliest, so don't plan on spending a night at the hotel bar. Breakfast is also an additional $10 but you can get coffee and tea for free until 9:30ish.

Overall, I would recommend the hotel as the price is right and location is close to bars and restaurants.

We are from L.A. and this was our first trip to Atlanta, and we chose the Artmore because it was right across the street from the Marta, we like to stay at independent boutique hotels, and Midtown looked like a cool area to stay. The location of the hotel was perfect, and we were very pleased with the look and feel of the place. The lobby, bar and courtyard are all very hip and comfortable, and the staff is amazing - so very friendly and helpful! The room we had was smallish, but it had EVERYTHING we could need - small kitchen, large closet, very comfortable bed, great shower and bath and functional bathroom. The decor of the room was great - modern and stylish, and it was very clean. $10 breakfast buffet in the morning was a bargain. If we ever return to Atlanta, we will book the Artmore again!

Artmore Hotel is so beautiful and romantic. I put all my out of town guests there and it worked out great! Everyone enjoyed their stay at the hotel.  It is one block away from the MARTA station, people can get from the airport to the hotel and many other local attractions at ease. There is free shuttle across the street from the hotel to Atlantic station. We got married at Rhodes Hall and people can just walk 4 blocks to the venue. We had our cocktail hours and afterparty at Artmore it was so much fun and easy to do. The courtyard is so romantic and the new lawn area has open space and you can see the downtown. Breakfast included at our hotel rate and all the rooms are unique and super homey. Everyone loved it. All the staffs are exceptionally nice. I left my bridal accessories in my room (necklace, bracelet, and earrings) and they found it and return it to me couple days after my wedding. Oh also pets are allowed. Family commented on how nice it was. This is the best hotel in downtown, affordable price, good location, service, comfort, and romantic ambiance.

Long inrigued by the slick photos on this boutique hotel's website, I've often wondered about the quality of its stylish bar. I decide to sample its wares one Friday night. It's not long afterwards that I begin to lose the fragile grip I have on my sanity.

Surprisingly, the atmosphere is clubby, hipster geek, with a Georgia Tech student bartender engrossed in conversation about himself. I'm finally able to distract him and ask for a drink menu, whereupon I'm advised that while they have one, he probably couldn't make anything on it due to the "bar's" lack of stock. Unconvinced, I  ask for vodka. Unbelievably, there is none. Expectations successfully lowered, I finally opt for a beer which he somehow manages to find.

Adding to the surrealism, a "semi-private party" is going on in the bar with refreshments available only to a privileged few. Looking for a little fun, I ask the bartender, once again engaged in self rapture, for a drink recommendation. I receive the curt retort, whaddya want? In a moment of lost cool I respond, "I want you to do your job." Blankness.

I then stupidly yield to the entreaties of a bridal party and consent to staying for the "End of the Month" party. At about 15 minutes in I begin looking around for a rusty butter knife to put an end to the month of hell I've suffered in the past 2 hours.

My advice, don't go, but if you must go, BYOB.

Would give 5 stars if the beds were more comfortable but there really is nothing bad to say about the Artmore - really only good things.  Room was spotless and service was terrific.  Checkin was a breeze and the car valet was always very quick.  The courtyard is a definite plus to the place. It was a bit breezy but with the heat lamps sitting outside was made very comfortable.   So nice to hang out and relax with a drink after driving a few hours.  Have been to the chains many  times for different reasons and the Artmore was a pleasant unique getaway.  Wouldn't hesitate to return.

My recently stay at the Artmore hotel surprised me. As a former resident of Atlanta I had known the hotel was there but never stayed. On my business trip I was looking for something centrally located. The rates are reasonable for midtown and close to a train station. Service is ver good and  I recommend the loft suites they make you feel like home. Bar service in the lobby is friendly if Jasmine and Jody are there they will take care of you.

The Artmore is in a very convenient location in Midtown and is a lovely boutique hotel in an older building. The breakfast on the ground level was very good although it does cost extra--$10 a person. Valet parking is available for $20 for 24 hours. We were allowed to continue to park there for several more hours after we checked out since we did not check in the night before until 5:00pm. The front desk woman was very friendly and helpful.The High Museum and Woodruff Arts Center are an easy walking distance across the street, as are a several good restaurants, including South City Kitchen. The MARTA station is right across the street. My only complaint was our room was right over the underground garage, and we heard the garage door going up and down while we were trying to get to sleep. However, we were so tired that we fell asleep to the rhythm. I am sure other rooms in other locations would not hear this sound. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Atlanta.

I did not pay for my stay, so I cannot judge the value. But here are my opinions:

Pros: bed and linens are comfortable, nice coffee maker and alarm clock with iPod dock. The hotel has been updated with nice design touches. The lobby and courtyard are stylish. Location is near museums and great dining and coffee. Free WiFi.

Cons:  Noisy, can hear upstairs guest walking, taking shower. Poor detail work, quality not matching the chic design. Bathroom has a cheap motel feel.

Overall, this hotel's beauty is only skin deep and doesn't quite deliver where it counts: offering a peaceful, quiet restful experience.

I was on a business trip for the first three days in Georgia and pleasure for the weekend (Thursday-Saturday).

when I arrived here after work was done....it was such a refreshing change, we reserved a suite which was adorable!  The staff  is definitely what makes the hotel. My husband met me in ATL and this was home for three nights and so glad we selected this hotel.

The front desk - helpful and courteous
Studio lounge-go see Antone, Erica, and Jelly. They are so fun and engaging, they truly represent pure southern hospitality!

valet were great even though the hotel charges a fee. they are quick to bring your car.

The room- the suites are so cute except for the water temps in the showers vary tremendously.  The water is uncomfortably cold or way hot but the front desk did offer to send maintenance.

Wifi- is pretty bad here and the only way to use your iPad, computer is to go to the courtyard. :(

The location- in midtown and very close to many attractions. I would recommend this lovely hotel!

The Artmore has become one of my favorite hotel bars.

Avoid the upity Asian and go straight to Danny.  He makes a special drink that I am not sure what he called it, or what is in it, but it so smooth and refreshing.

Recently the outdoor seating area has opened. The night I was there with Keith Gordon they were playing some kick ass 80s music. Great for the bar patrons, but I am not so sure how some of the hotel patrons are going to like it blaring into their room, but quite frankly that really isn't my problem.

The do have a limited menu, off which we tried the pork pulled sandwiches, the cheese plate, and the cupcakes.   The cupcakes - not so good.  I can't remember where they are from, but it certainly wasn't JUST CAKES ATLANTA.

All in all this is the one hotel bar we can go back to whenever we get kicked out of - or just don't like the other places.

If you are tired of hyperbolic  statements of opulence, marble foyers, soring hotel towers and high room rates, the Artmore may be just the place for you. A completely refurbished older hotel in mid-town Atlanta this gem is my place to stay in town. Right across from the High Museum of Art, ARTmore - get it?, It is a little too far to walk to downtown but there are plenty of good places to eat in this area and a fixed rate rule is sort of in place for Taxis between downtown and midtown. I say sort of because every cab I got in except the checker cab the hotel call for me the first morning tried to "negotiate" a rate higher than the $8+$2 fare + fuel surcharge.  Of course this has nothing to do with the Hotel. Many rooms are unique. With an upgrade I got a two story loft apartment overlooking the courtyard which is amongst the nicest room I've every staid in. I love mini bars and the Artmore's is fully stocked and reasonably priced.  There is a full service bar just off the lobby; they serve meals too, and a restaurant in the basement so it is a full service hotel in every way. All this for $149 plus taxes and fees. It seems like a good deal to me. By the way, my $149 was through my companies corporate travel which is required by the big wigs but you can get a rate around $124 on line

We stayed at the Artmore for a staycation to celebrate our anniversary. It reminded us of a previous anniversary when we stayed in Paris, but the rooms at Artmore were much larger. We had a loft suite with a full kitchen downstairs including a well stocked mini bar and lots of treats and snacks available. The service from the desk was excellent, though we were asked to print out a copy of a groupon we were using. No big deal as they have a  business center downstairs with computers and a printer.
The buffet breakfast was very nice with a good assortment of food and no crappy frozen pancakes.
Our room was comfortable and clean, and the decor was appealing and made it feel even more special. Nice flat screen TV in a good spot with a few comfprtable chairs also. Great bathroom with a rain type shower.
We dined at a nearby restaurant of which there are many to choose from.
Overall this was a great overnighter and I would recommend the hotel to singles or couples. I don't think its a great family spot and we did not see any kids while there.

I stayed at this hotel last week and it was excellent. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.  Biggest advantage - it's a 5 minute walk to the High Museum, which is open late on Friday evenings.  I will for sure stay here again.

What a fabulous boutique hotel!!!

I recently stayed here with my boyfriend of 2 years for our anniversary. We coupled with going out to Celebrate St. Patrick's day at a local Irish Pub down the street.
We arrived at 1:00pm and had called to see about early check in.  They have valet parking for a reasonable $18 per night.

The staff was very friendly asking us what brought us to them that day. The layout of the lobby is small and sweet, but the real show stealer is the courtyard with it's beautiful outdoor furniture and fire pit waterfall. You see it all as you walk up the stairs and enter the lobby.

After we checked in we made our way to the elevator and passed a cute small bar and grill that we were told was opened 3pm that day.

We were on the second floor and our room was amazing. Huge California king sized bed with what I think was alternative down pillows and comforter. A huge beautiful red throw at the end with red pillow and a huge red rose painting on the wall above the bed.

We were greeted by a picture of Audrey Hepburn above the desk and Marilyn Monroe in the wet bar. I had no idea but this place had a separate wet bar area with a full stocked mini bar and all kind of other goodies. They however are not complimentary but the hotel itself was only about $100 per night so it was no big deal. The best part, there was an adorable Keurig with a few different types of coffee to choose from...and the best best part, international delight  french vanilla creamers! There were snacks, a special K protein bar, snickers, nuts, chips, alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, Fuji water, a romantic box (we did not open it, the cost was $20.00.) A shaving kit, a candle and a bunch of other things for sale in the room.

I am not sure if this was the case with all the rooms, but ours had a European style shower...no doors or curtain! It was really fun and went along with the Spanish style of the courtyard (which our room faced) If you are not a fan of this please call the hotel first. Chris said he could imagine people not being used to this kind of shower not understanding it. I thought it was super cool.

There was an ipod docking station alarm clock, and a list of what to do in Atlanta. There was a hair dryer in the bathroom and ample towels. There was free wifi and a huge flat screen TV on the wall.

The room was very cozy and there were three nice windows (two in the bedroom one in he bathroom) The lighting was nice and the noise level was low.

The staff was excellent everyone with a smile, everyone with a hello. We were very  pleased with our stay. With that said my boyfriend Christian a hard person to impress but he really liked the look and feel of the hotel and cannot wait to go back! I will be checking their site for specials!

One of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. When I say experience, I mean this is not your normal nation wide chain. I was first greeted by a valet attendant who was very friendly and professional. The front desk of the lobby was busy, but the clerk was in control and on top of her game describing all the features of my stay. My room was exquisite with such unique charm! The bed was most comfortable and the room temperature was an awesome cool down from a hot Atlanta day. The decor of the room thrilled me. Picture of  Audrey Hepburn and Elvis in the bathroom. PERFECT! I then decided to check out the lounge. One of the most awesome bartenders ever! She was kind, smiled, and catered to my every need. Even when my cell phone was going dead, she kindly found her own and let me use it while I was at the bar. The courtyard was an awesome place. It had comfy seats as well as an awesome water fountain which helped me relax. Nothing like sitting out there and enjoying a glass of wine. That night the bed slept most comfortably and I slept well through out the night. However around seven am I heard some kind of crashing and bumping about within the walls. Well it was breakfast time anyways. The breakfast was hot and fresh with many options. Checking out was easy and the staff remained charming. Every staff member I encountered was friendly and very professional. Through out my stay, I kept saying to myself, Why haven't I stayed here with every visit to Atlanta? I will be back!

I am not sure where to even begin with this review. I was looking for something special for a mother/daughter weekend with my daughter in Atlanta. I decided instead of going with a  large chain hotel like I normally do, to try something different-and I am SO glad I did! Everyone that we came into contact with from valet, to front desk, to bar- was wonderfully cheerful and helpful.  All the employees seemed to genuinely enjoy their job and that says a lot. The energy and ambiance is amazing. There was a jazz band out in the courtyard on Friday evening and yoga in the courtyard in the mornings. This hotel has great charm and class and was immaculate. I can't rave enough about this hotel. It was close to The Margaret Mitchell house which was on our agenda. Also, right across the street, you can catch a bus to Atlanta Station. Looking forward to staying here again in the future. I can't thank the staff enough for the hospitality. I highly recommend that you check this place out while visiting Atlanta!

Very nice boutique hotel in Midtown Atlanta.  The price is AWESOME for the location and amenities.
My hubby and I have stayed here a few times and we have always had great experiences.  We stayed here once after our "hellmoon" where we got stranded on an island and had to spend thousands of dollars to get off (true story) and they were particularly wonderful.  They heard our story and upgraded our room for free and gave us each a drink on the house.  Also, the hotel bar and court yard are beautiful and very comfortable!  I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

We typically use hotwire for 4 star hotels and usually get Loew's, the W, Westin, etc for lower rates.  We stayed here because it was in walking distance to the event facility we were visiting for the weekend.  

Pros: When we pulled up Friday there was a live band playing in the couryard which was cool.  Cool ambiance.  The front desk was friendly and everyone was nice.

Cons: The hotel is dated but I understand that is part of the reason people love it.  Peeled wall paint etc.  But we get to our room on the 3rd floor and open the door and there is a small foyer sized room with chairs, tv, mini bar, etc and stairs.  Unusual.  We go up the stairs and realize we are in a loft/attic of some type.  You had to bend over to get to the bedside nightstands and while laying in bed you could touch the ceiling.  My hubby did bump his head once.  No big deal really because you don't need to stand up in bed.  But the room was in the corner of the building with the slanted roof as part of your room structure.  The sink and shower were ok (small one person shower) but the rest of the bathroom was empty because it was useless.  It slanted down to about 4.5' off the ground.  My husband hated the hotel and room.  I thought it was unique and probably would've been interesting had we not had the 3 year old.  We had his travel mattress and couldn't find anywhere to place it on the floor because there was not enough room for a 3.5'x5' air mattress on the floor except by the stairs.  We worked it out.  

So, it did the job and nothing was dirty or gross - #1 priority.  I think if we had paid less, it woudn't matter so much.  We paid $129/nt.  Definitely not worth that.  Again, I've stayed in tons of 4 star hotels for less.  This is a 3 star at most.  Definitely an antique-y boutique (lol).  Would not stay here again.

Beautiful place.  Key points:

Easy to find, great location, walked everywhere.

Valet parking in a secured garage.

Quiet, pretty rooms, great bathroom.

Awesome courtyard.

Well-stocked mini-bar and snacks but the $4 Snickers candy bar is available in a vending machine down the hall.  As is the $3.75 8oz Coke.

Absolutely NO help with luggage, no carts either.  Not even any carts inside.  You pretty much have to unload it and make trips to your room (leaving your things unattended in the process)

Bed was unbearably hard.

Breakfast is just terrible.  Raw eggs, undercooked sausage and burnt coffee.

Hotel staff very friendly and helpful.

Words cannot express how much I LOVE this hotel, The staff are amazing and the rooms and location are so beautiful and perfect!
My newlywed husband and I came here for the night of our wedding before we left the next day for our honeymoon!
The staff greeted us like celebs and took our picture and added it to their Artmore Hotel facebook page! And our room was so quaint and beautiful with a very romantic pic of a Big Red Rose hanging over our bed. They gave us the perfect private room off to the side of the hotel where it was quiet and private.
Breakfast in the morning was plentiful and delicious! I absolutely love this place and cant wait to stay again!

I left my diamonds and pearl earrings in the bathroom the day I checked out. An hour later I informed the housekeeping woman by phone who said she will check in the room. A half hour later I myself went back to the hotel room to check and the earrings were gone. In the mean time I received a phone message from housekeeping that they were unable to find the earrings. I then reported the incident to the GM at hotel who conducted an audit check & of course did not find anything. I was surprised to learn that they don't even compensate for something expensive that went missing in their hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone!

I booked this hotel for a business trip to Atlanta after finding a great deal on hotels.com . When I arrived, it was as charming as its pictures and seems to be centrally located. However charming, there are a lot of drawbacks to this hotel. First, there is only valet parking ($19.50) - you do not even have the option to self park. Second, the internet is unreliable. Third, the elevator is broken, meaning that I have to go up and down 3 flights of stairs anytime I want to go anywhere. And lastly, I can hear EVERYTHING. I can hear the traffic on the street, the lounge music being pumped into the courtyard, and everytime the door to the stairway opens (which is often since the elevator is broken).

Trip to Atlanta, didn't want to rent car, so looked for hotel on Marta line near the Arts Center, found Artmore Hotel, liked the courtyard, rustic, made reservations.
Arrived in Atlanta airport, got on Marta line to Arts Center Station. Walked down to Peachtree St NW, headed north to Artmore, about 10 min. walk. Great!

Exterior stucco, old world type boutique hotel surrounded by contemporary buildings.

Interior designed in artful manner, leather sofa, contemporary lobby, photos of Elvis, early Brigitte Bardot, Hitchcock, Marilyn, and paintings of the Beatles in hallway. Rooms small but tastefully done. Gotta pay for your room coffee, but they have free coffee downstairs. Just leave your robe on, go down stairs and bring it back up. Breakfast $10 per person, and more variety than most breakfasts in boutique hotels. Staff very helpful and friendly ...everyday. Bartenders never heard of a Vesper Martini, so I hope they learn it. Jazz duo played in lobby Friday night, but if it is warm and not raining, they play in the courtyard which is lighted up and is very comfortable. All in all, this Tuscan style boutique hotel will get a revisit from us whenever we go to Atlanta.

This hotel is great.  Valet parking (with in out all day).  The front desk is super friendly and know the city well.  Their recommendations were perfect  from sight seeing,  getting around town,  and dinning out.  This is a nice boutique hotel without the outrageous price.  When you walk up to the hotel they have an inviting courtyard with  fire pit right in the middle.  You will find plenty of people out there every evening having drinks and mingling. The bar in the lobby  has a nice modern feel and makes the drinks good .  The room we were in had a everything you needed ....  A fully stocked  mini bar,  fridge,  microwave, iron,  aveda toiletries, flat screen TV, and plush bed.  The hotel is also located  just blocks from an amazing night life.  The marta is right across the street to  if you need public  transportation.

Fashionable and spruced-up old hotel building. Rooms are small, but clean. My major problem is no sound insulation. After midnight I could hear soft coughing, quiet conversation, and other noises. It sounded like elephants occupied the upstairs room. I assume we also unintendedly disturbed the sleep of other  guests. There is a small hot breakfast buffet in the basement from 6 am for $10.

Valet parking is $19.50, but indoor overnight parking is offered across the street for either $10 (sidewalk sign) or $15 (ticket machine). Didn't get answer from voice mail I left at listed phone number. Got a hotel sign from valet parker to put on dash with $10 ticket for 8 hours. None of the desk clerks had coupons or knowledge.

Convenient location for those who justifiably hate Atlanta traffic: The MARTA station is across W. Peachtree. The High Museum and Atlanta Symphony are one block E on Peachtree St. Colony Square and 14th Street Playhouse are a half-mile SE.

Service ranges from attentive to benignly neglectful.

This is the second Stash Hotel property at which I have stayed, and I am incredibly impressed! From the moment I walked in (hours before normal check-in due to an early flight), the staff is been incredibly accommodating, kind, helpful, and overwhelmingly welcoming.

The food and drinks are wonderful and reasonably priced, and my room, well, Wowzers!  Room tip: 312 is awesome!  It's a 2-story with a full kitchen (yes, full fridge, stove, pots, pans, etc), enormous upstairs sleeping quarters, and has hip decor, 2 tv's, and a closet.  

The plant-filled courtyard area with firepit fountain and big comfy couches has the most laid-back vibe and again with the impeccable service!  I don't think I passed a single employee my entire stay who didn't genuinely greet me, look me in the eye, and in some way try to make something about my stay better.  

I'm rarely floored by service, but whomever is running this place has it dialed and hires the best of the best.  I only wish I'd known it would be such a great place, I'd have extended my work trip and brought along the hubs.

I can only hope everyone has an experience this great, because this has been a rare treat for someone who travels for work pretty frequently.

Hotel was VERY understaffed and it showed. Upon my arrival I had to search for the desk agent, after five minutes she appeared chewing and conversating with other staff members. Once I checked in my room it was not fully stocked and I had to call for wash clothes & towels. They're concierge items are out w/ an invisible price list, that sits at the bottom (FYI... You'll see it AFTER you eat and drink EVERYTHING). Housekeeping came in my room at approximately 11:27am WITHOUT knocking, I thought checkout was at 12pm. SMH!!! Oh and at checkout you're charged an additional $25 that they DO NOT mention to you just INCASE you used any of the concierge items. I will NEVER stay here again.

What a fantastic experience in this Midtown gem! Walking up to the front door it's difficult not to be drawn in by the incredibly thoughtful and beautiful courtyard. It reminded me of hotel courtyards we experienced all over Spain. You couldn't help but want to enjoy a drink by the fire in this secluded and comfortable space.

Everyone who worked at the hotel demonstrated a high level of service and southern hospitality. This is to be expected, but is not always the norm. The gentleman at the front desk even asked about room preference--courtyard facing room (louder at night) or street facing room. This most certainly done proactively in an effort to avoid late-night complaints and room moving. Fine by me, I'm thankful for the option.

The building itself is wonderfully renovated--while it's obviously rehabbed and remains old in some ways, the design feels thoughtful and lacks the superficiality that you find in some re-done hotels. This remodel does not appear to have been done on the cheap.
Case in point--the entire room was well-decorated in a contemporary style, boasting a comfortable bed and softer sheets than are standard in most hotels.

The Artmore offers the best wet/snack bar I've ever seen, including those at top drawer establishments. I appreciated the thought and care that clearly went into meeting the varying needs of hotel guests.

For the price ($116!), this was an outstanding hotel. While the elevator is not well-situated (can't be moved), slow and small, this shouldn't keep anyone away. When I return to Atlanta, I will not hesitate to make my reservation at The Artmore. Probably again and again.

Pretty good.
We attended a Georgia Tech Intown Alumni Network event and had the opportunity to sit under the stars and drink and have appetizers.  Here's the lowdown:
1) They are on West Peachtree - like ON West Peachtree - so they are very convenient.  However, our meeting place was outside ON west Peachtree so it was a bit much until traffic died down.
2) Parking is a bear; make sure that you park at a lot BEFORE you get to the hotel or else you'll have to circle back around as it's a one-way street.
3) The servers are nice and were attentive to our group.
4) The food was pretty darn good; they were flexible for the GFers in the crowd.

They apparently have an inner courtyard - I think if we go back for another event, I will probably ask that we be inside.

All in all, a pretty solid evening!

This same understood the time crunch I was under and put a rush on my suit so that it would be ready for early check in. My brother had a good time with the bartender and we enjoyed the many hang out spots around the hotel. It's not noisy and although there is only valet parking, I'd say it pretty reasonable for the area. Also the suite was extremely  spacious and an awesome price for the area.

The  Artmore Hotel is a vintage Atlanta, GA hotel in the river north area of bustling Michigan Ave. Recently acquired by another hotel group, it's now the Warwick  Artmore Hotel which is helpful to know when giving taxi drivers directions. The hotel is well maintained for it's age and decor. The location is excellent. The service was outstanding especially the manager who was very generous when attending to our needs. The rooms were a decent size, a little oddly laid out. There is a hospital nearby so you will hear ambulances from time to time.

I stayed at this quaint boutique hotel for a 3-day writing retreat. As others have mentioned, the decor is very nice and the rooms are comfortable. I especially loved the courtyard with the fountain and the enclosed patio. The large table on the patio made for an excellent work space for our group and we could still step away and lounge on the oversized couches.

But hotels aren't just about ambiance and comforts; it is also the experience made possible by the staff. The front desk hostess, April, was super nice and just as cute as pie. The housekeepers, bellmen and engineers were also very friendly and attentive. Further, Enoch (whom I believe was a hotel manager) went above and beyond to make sure that our experience was excellent. He took the time to get to know us and our needs and then took several measures to address our requests promptly. It was pretty hot outside but he made sure we had water and coffee throughout the day. That was awesome!

I've stayed in many hotels and I've yet to encounter such delightful and competent staff members. Our trip was splendid (and productive). We'll definitely be back to stay at the Artmore!

My son and I stayed at the Artmore for two nights in mid-April.  It was lovely.

The building is an old (1930s?) apartment building converted into stylish hotel.  The theme is movie stars of the 1930s-1950s with glam B+W studio photos of the stars, old movies running on the big screen in the lobby and cool artwork though out.

The room was large enough to have two double beds, desk, microwave and a dresser.  The on-line price was the best for any hotel I could find in Midtown or Buckhead.    

Artmore hit my requirements:  quiet HVAC, comfortable bed, plenty of light for shaving over the sink, good wifi, and adjustable desk chair. Some reviewers complained about thin walls.  We didn't notice either street noise or noise from the neighbors -- a bunch of young Brazilian girls on holiday.

The location in Midtown is excellent.  It is literally a 30 second walk to the MARTA station.

Here's the best part:  my 24 year old son thought Artmore was terrific.

Sorry, not a fan.

I waited over an hour to get into my room after check in time. The front desk staff, although nice, seemed unprofessional to me, laughing and talking loudly about birth control while I was waiting. The valet guy was the most professional out of the staff.

The room was ok- bigger than I expected but an overwhelming orange scented cleaner smell filled the room even the day after check in. The elevator was so slow I would recommend only taking the stairs.

Would not go back.

We stayed here for an anniversary weekend using a Groupon. I had not heard of the hotel at the time but decided to stay here based on the location. I'm glad that I did. In the lobby, you feel like you are in a typical hotel but once you walk to the back where the rooms are, you feel like you stepped back a few years but not in a bad way. It is a charming hotel. Our room was nice and we had a view of the courtyard. However, the walls seem a little thin so expect to hear a few people talking in the hall. It's not like you can hear a pin drop or every step made but if they are talking loud enough, expect to hear murmurs. I liked having a kitchen in the room also. The valet was very quick when bringing our car up for us, which is always a plus. I would definitely stay again.

What a difference a few blocks make!

On the second stretch of my stay in ATL we moved hotels (thank God), and arrived to the Artmore after a brisk walk down Peachtree. We arrived early and were cool with just dropping off our bags - but the nice young lady (ah! hate that I forgot her name, she was SO nice!) told us they had a room ready for us and we could check in early. We dropped off our luggage and headed out.

The hotel is super nice. The rooms are trendy, the beds are super comfortable, there was a nice kitchen, the bathrooms were big enough and best of all the walls were nice and thick (I could hear every single foot step at the previous hotel). Aside from the room, the rest of the hotel is really nice. It's a small - dare I say boutique - hotel and it's extremely charming. There is an outdoor patio area to sit - at night it lights up with strings of lights across the top and a fire pit in the middle. Even in the middle of summer there was folks sippin' some wine out there.

They offer valet and we rented a car the last 2 days - they were always super quick and nice. The price we paid was more than fair and I'd recommend for anyone to stay here.

This was a pleasant surprise to stay instead of the typical chain hotels. My room was a 1bdrm loft with a view of Atlantic Station in the distance.

Service was good and it was a vibrant place to be at night for the young professional hip crowd that's into arts and entertainment.

My recommendation is to not pass over this hidden jewel, especially if it's during one of those hot Atlanta summer nights. Cheers!!!

Traveling to Atlanta for business.  Due to company restrictions, needed to find the lowest price hotel in the area.   Other chains are charging $190 or more per night in the area.   Along comes the Artmore for about $70 less.  

I have stayed a few times here (although first checkin).   The building is old but has been kept up to date.  

Getting there is easy (if you don't mind Atlanta traffic).   They have valet parking on site and right across from the Metro station.   So very well situated.  

Walking into the lobby is a nice modern / funky lobby.   Behind it is the bar.  There is also a great courtyard in the middle for outdoor socialization.  

This time, I stayed in a look on the backside looking out over I75.   The room was surprisingly quiet.   This old building was built solid and didn't let much of outside sounds in.  Big positive.   The room is not huge but a good size.  I had a king bed and a large flatscreen TV.    Probably only negative on the room is the size of the bathroom.  That was small and a bit cramped.   But overall, a very nice room with Aveda products.  

Back to the lounge.   A decent size bar with average stock on the shelves.  They also serve food there, but if it wasn't freezing outside, I would have walked around to find something else.  The bartender did a good job of keeping our glasses filled and making sure that we were taken care of.

One important thing to note...  they do allow pets.  I did see a few guests with small dogs.   This doesn't bother me, but may be of concern to others.  

The staff are all very friendly and look to help you however they can.

The Artmore Hotel helped us host a fantastic happy hour! My journalism school alumni were getting together for our quarterly meetup, so we selected the Artmore for its central location and beautiful space. We were lucky to be on the covered patio which is super chic with its modern ambiance, comfy outdoor furniture, and ambient lighting. We had about 70 RSVPs and the space was plentiful for our crowd.

For food we had platters of meatballs, spinach dip, and hummus. Those were the perfect light bites for noshing on while sipping cocktails. The staff graciously offered us an $8 martini special in addition to $5 sangria. Other spirits, wine, and beer are reasonably priced given the Midtown location. Parking is ample with a $6 valet charge or opt for one of the pay lots around the corner.

The dean of our journalism school also came over from Athens, and he opted to stay the night. He said he was super impressed with his room and the decor.

I'd recommend looking at The Artmore for your next gathering. Thanks to the staff there for showing us true Southern hospitality!
