    For our one night in Atlanta, we wanted a fun boutique hotel.  This hotel reminds us of Atlanta's version of The Standard in Los Angeles.  It is decorated in a modern, sexy style as are the clientele at the bar and restaurant below.  The staff is even friendly.  If you have heavy bags, have the front desk take them to your room instead of lugging them up and down the lobby steps.  If jet lag has you awake all night,  the flat screen tv and wifi will keep you occupied.

    I like the concept of this place but it has fallen short in so many ways. I did a weekend getaway with my wife one weekend and the service was horrible. For some reason after that experience I still continued to suggest it to out of town visitors. My company actually started an account there and all the guys from London were staying there till they got fed up with the bar closing early. Very sexy place, glad to read they finally fixed the roof situation. I will go back and check it out.

    My wife's company had an event at the Aquarium and booked all the employees at the Glenn. The first room they booked us in reeked of smoke....I was a little disappointed that they didn't notice. Just a little inconvenience no big deal. The lobby has a trendy/cozy feel. I got a jack anc coke as we were waiting for a ride and it set me back $9.99. I don't spend much time downtown but that seemed pretty steep. By the time we got back to the hotel it was around 11 and wow did the crowd change. The DJ was spinning/playing/whatever and there were at least 3 couples making out hardcore on the couches. We were going to hang out but decided just to call it a night and turn in. The window into the shower = fun.

    i liked this hotel.

    i booked a room at a suite, a dream suite i think it was? the room was cool. it was very small, but i remember liking it. i don't know what the bed was like, as i slept on the couch. i do, however, recall the couch as being a decent sleeping surface (the person i went with was just a friend). there was a small television in the room, but this strikes me as the type of hotel where when you stay with someone, tv isn't really what's on the agenda, can you dig it?

    as someone mentioned previously, they make good use of the space in the room. i didn't get to check out the rooftop bar, as i don't think it would have been my crowd. we stayed at this hotel for ufc 88, as it's so close to philips. so many tapout shirt wearing douches, it was pathetic. they made the douches wearing affliction clothing look almost cool LOL.

    I loved this hotel, very quirky and cool. We only stayed one night to attend a football game at the Georgia Dome, which was quite close. The staff was very nice and helpful, lobby was beautifully decorated. The rooms were quite small but very comfy. It was a pretty sexy room, glad I went with my hubby! We did not eat in the restaurant or bar area but we did have some drinks on the roof top bar which was expensive for 4 drinks that weren't that great. The view was very cool at night though. I would like the staff to maybe try to control the bum population that hangs out by the doors and valet parking. Very uncomfortable for me, especially at night. I would stay here again though.

    Wow, I've never been so bored. I was completely unimpressed by the Rooftop Party on Wed night. If you like being around bleach blonds wearing string and listening to over thought house/trance then step up to the bar. We stayed here all of 15 mins. I love nightlife and dancing, but some of these "clubs" are in a word lame. Am I the only one who thinks standing on a roof getting drunk with people I don't know is.... weird? The view is great as long as you aren't looking at the people, not that they see you because the are so drunk. Ladies don't wear too thin of a heel as you are on a roof with loose tiles. There is also this spongy material between the tiles that seems drawn to skinny heels. If you were into Buckhead then you will love it, no cover, $6 beers, Bros and Blonds all the way.

    I want to love this hotel because I know what they're trying to do.  A classic building with euro cool decor by Olympic Village, CNN and GWCC.  Trendy bar and restaurant attached.  

    It just feels like they're improvising, woke up late, forgot to stock the rooms, tired from partying all night.  If they could notch it up service-wise I'd be happy to give them 4 stars.

    The bar on the roof was cool, nothing like "dancing on the ceiling." The DJ was playing Stevie Wonder only which was cool but not that cool.

    The room was a suite and it was sweet. Careful with the amenities, they will charge you.

    I'll have to try it again with Deanna J's concept of "bring the party."

    Wait... could this be an annual yelp event? Can we get yelp discounts?

    Are we really ever going to bring our troops home?

    I'm a consumer of these non-chain, boutique hotels.  It seems to me such establishments realize how important it is to be welcoming and provide a comfortable experience.  The Glenn accomplished this with us.  There were a few small glitches but nothing big.  The location is wonderful for anyone wanting to spend time downtown.  At check-in, we were given a room on the 6th floor because they said, "Any higher floor and you'll most likely hear alot of noise from the rooftop club".  Keep this in mind.  We didn't hear a peep on the 6th floor.  The rooms are very well crafted.  Highly recommend staying here where you don't feel like a number.

    When I first arrived to this hotel I was quite happy to see a sitting buddha above their fountain.  Anything with a buddha gets an A from me.

    The valet greeted me with a nice smile and warm welcome.

    The front desk staff was eagerly awaiting my arrival and greeted me by name.  I asked if I was the only person checking in that day, since everyone seemed to be waiting for me.  Their answer was a simple "yes".  
    The room was small.  Not a big deal since I really did not spend anytime in it.  A couple of notes to mention; first of all, the staff failed to provide me with a key to the minibar. I called downstairs and within ten minutes I had someone at my door with the key.  I finally open the minibar only to discover that they were stocked with beverages of all sorts EXCEPT water! I am a huge water person, how can there not be any water? Another unhappy moment was when I realized that my room was not internet friendly.  I was there for work, had I been visiting for more than one night I would have been annoyed to have to use a business center to send emails.
    The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. My room was complete with an ihome ipod docking station.  Perfect for a person like myself that can't live without music for ten minutes.
    The next morning upon checkout I mentioned the water issue to the person at the front desk and she was happy to provide me with a COLD bottle for my drive to my appointment.
    I must say, the staff made me feel appreciated and welcome.  I may stay in Buckhead next time just for a little variety, but I would not hesitate to stay here again if I need to be in downtown ATL.

    We spent a great weekend in the ultra-modern, super-hip Hotel Rouge in DC a couple of years ago, and when we came back to Atlanta I wondered if this city would ever have a boutique hotel as cool as that. I'm happy to report that we do, and I even think that the Glenn surpasses Rouge on a couple of levels.

    The interior design was a real highlight for me. The lobby is beautifully decorated with dark wood details accented by vibrant oranges. Our room was very sexy (a tired word I usually hate to use, but it applies here). The very comfortable bed was dressed in a lusciously dark orange spread and a large cushioned head board. The entire room was bathed in deep, sultry colors with the sheer curtains providing a peekaboo glimpse of one of the best views of downtown I've seen.

    Visiting the roof top bar at night should be on everyone's short list of things to do downtown. What a great way to experience the city. There are not many places where you can be surrounded by that kind of semi-bird's-eye urban vista while outdoors.

    The gym was small but very nicely done with large screen televisions and complimentary water bottles and apples. And the breakfast they provide was really impressive for continental. There was once a great graffiti in Cabbagetown that read "continental breakfast is not real breakfast," but the spread here made me think twice about that.

    This was a wedding anniversary celebration weekend for us, and we both really enjoyed our decision to stay in Atlanta and experience the best of downtown. We walked to Le Fleur de Lis for both dinner and Sunday brunch and loved it, and strolled through Centennial Park  during the late morning before the crowds came. Very nice.

    The Hotel is beautiful. From the candlelit lobby, to the amazing back lit stone wall behind the bar, and excellent wine at the bar. But I have to say my experience wasn't great. The people were fantastic; excellent service and dinner recommendations. Even when I couldn't figure out how to turn on my high-tech TV, they were professional and didn't mock me....to my face any way. But the noise....noise.....NOISE. Holy crap! I felt as if fire trucks and freight trains were literally driving through my room at 1am....then at 2:43am....then again at 3:28am...and on and on.  Worst 2 nights "sleep" ever.

    I really loved the look at feel of this hotel. But I think my next visit back to Hot-Lanta will have to be at the Hilton sad to say-but at least I know they've got a little bit of sound proofing.

    So 5++++ stars for atmosphere, but when you travel for business sleep is pretty damn critical!

    The Glenn Hotel is probably known to us Atlanta locals as the resting place of the now defunct B.E.D., but it still has it's 'hotel bar' thing going.

    Do not come here for the crowd. This is the kind of place to bring a group of friends and take over the bar, infusing fun and debauchery throughout.

    You'll meet mostly hotel guests - we met conventioneers with name tags, an entire wedding party, a hip mom that just turned 50 from Cumming celebrating and some dudes that looked straight out of an 80s music video - and maybe a few locals.

    Do come here for the rooftop bar. It's amazing. Ten or so stories up, it's an incredible view of downtown Atlanta. Full bar (and restroom!) on the roof, with trendy wicker furniture and small tables scattered throughout.

    The downstairs lobby bar has a DJ, who emerged from his booth and joined our dance party of my friend that turned 25, the suburban mom celebrating her 50th, and the middle aged wasted guy dancing in circles.  

    We got busted for sneaking a birthday cake onto the 'absolutely no food allowed' rooftop, which caused some, um, issues with the management. However, not stressful enough to prevent me from toasting the city with my glass of champagne and giving the Glenn Hotel Bar and rooftop four stars - for the skyline view and lovely randomness.

    I'll assume that we're talking about the rooftop bar.  Such a great view.  A great place to be to watch a sunset, hang out with some friends, and check out the city that you call home.  An eclectic crowd takes over after the sun goes down.

    Nota bene: Skip the absinthe.

    I didn't stay at this hotel, so I have no comments regarding the rooms and services at the Glenn.  My review is specifically about the roof top bar.  As a recent transplant from NYC, I can be bit of a snob when it comes to cool places in Atl, but this little roof top bar really impressed me.  It's a small space, cozy and intimate and the crowd is a bit older, but so am I, therefore I felt comfortable and found the atmosphere relaxing.  What I liked the most was the music.  I'm a huge 80's fan, and the DJ was playing lots of it....and I'm not talking about Tiffany and Debbie Gibson (not to say I don't like them, b/c they are awesome in their own way) but like the Cure, Depeche Mode, etc....overall, very cool.  This is probably not the place if you want dancing, but nice place to chill at if you want to keep it low key.

    Love this hotel. While the rooms are not huge - they are designed well and maximize the space in comfort. The flat screen tvs are nice, and even when you know a city, you can never underestimate the value of complimentary wifi to do little things like check email.

    You also have a "handler" of sorts who is your personal concierge.  Didn't anticipate using them, but  came to the room at midnight to bring a replacement. When looking to change restaurant reservations, the attendant at the front desk went so far as to call
    in and squeeze a reservations at Two Urban Licks when it was already booked.

    Seriously, you don't get that kind of service everywhere.

    The rooftop bar is pretty cool.  Nice spot, expensive drinks, good music turned into techno.  Gets a little crowded.  One of my friends was dressed like a bum, and I thought they mights not let us in, but they did, no problem.  I don't go much because of the price, but it's a good place to take visitors from out of town so they can see the Atlanta skyline.

    This is our third time staying here - and this last time was the best.  The front desk worked diligently to ensure that we had a great time during our stay - and we did.  The view is divine, and even though it is a Mariott hotel, it is so boutique.  We got a personal welcoming and a personal send-off.  Love this hotel so much - we will definitely stay here again.

    I attended a meeting here for 3 days with 25 people. It's located right next to CNN Center and across from Olympic Park. It's also an easy 4 block walk from the metro station if you take it from ATL. The hotel is in an old building (completely renovated - kept the outside façade). The rooms are a bit small, however they were adequate. Décor is boutique with oranges, dark browns, ect. Hallways and elevator areas are very dark with little spot lights illuminating "modern" art touches. Neighborhood seems safe and there are lots of trendy restaurants, sports bars, ect within easy walking distance. Their restaurant was adequate, nothing special. The staff was also adequate, nothing special. MEETING ROOMS ARE WOFULLY TOO SMALL. Better for groups fewer than 10 people. Nothing worse that being in a sardine can listen to PowerPoint presentations.

    I found the entryway to be a bit weirdly laid out, but otherwise everything said in previous 4 and 5 star reviews covers my sentiments very well. I found the staff to be pleasant, helpful, and not overbearingly nice.

    There's a bit of street noise, even 6 floors up, so beware of that. The business center is well-appointed and includes printing at no additional cost, as well as an espresso machine at your disposal.

    There's free WiFi for the first 24 hours of your stay, and it's quite usable.

    I unfortunately did not get an opportunity to visit the rooftop, however I've been told that it's quite an interesting place and a good relaxation spot.

    Gorgeous, boutique hotel. Lovely room and bathroom. Slept like a rock in the clean and comfy beds. Loved the shower with detachable spray. H2O bath products smelled heavenly. Enjoyed lunch in the hotel restaurant and was pleasantly surprised at the high caliber of food. Staff was fantastic and helpful.

    Location was far from most tourist destinations, but Atlanta seems like a driving town anyway.

    Will stay here next time I come to Atlanta! Came on a holiday, but imagine the bar scene to be hip and sophisticated.

    Don't stay here unless you're into pounding music till one a.m. !  Sleeping before then is impossible. Definitely not for anyone over 30.  The front desk even offered us earplugs!  Our room was adequate, on the small "boutiquey" side, but the mattress was unbelievably saggy: we spent all night trying to stay out of the middle!  Not a great part of town, either.  Disappointing.

    I cannot add much to Mark M's comprehensive review and that of several others except to concur.  We stayed at the Glenn the night of my daughter's wedding and enjoyed impeccable service from the valet to the check out. Christ, they handed us each a mojito at check-in.  Nice touch!

    The place is well appointed with interesting quirky styling - elevator walls that look like melting lava, grass like stuff lining the floor on each side of the hall.  And the shower window-  Loved the shower window!

    Yes the room was small but efficient and cool enough that we really didn't care about the size;  but absolutely loved the size of the shower.  There is a bit of genius involved in apportioning space that way.

    We got a great rate on Expedia and would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend it to out of town guests.

    This review is for Glenn's Kitchen in the hotel lobby.

    Stopped on a whim for a quick drink after spending the day @ the aquarium and Centennial Olympic Park.

    Had the Jack's Rose and Glentini, with fried green tomatoes. Both drinks were amazing, and fried green tomatoes were delish. Susan, the bartender was super friendly and gave us great tips on where to go in Atlanta. The space is beautiful - modern and clean, but with a bit of character and soul. Will absolutely be back.

    I just finished a two-night stay there this week.  

    First the positive.  It is a pleasant boutique-style property almost across the street from the very pleasant Olympic Centennial Park, which is a great place to go for a jog.  There are several good dining choices nearby.  The hotel's rooftop open terrace and bar is a very nice place to wind down an evening if the weather is good, which it was when I was there.  The lobby and bar area is very nicely decorated and comfortable and the staff was very friendly.  My room, at least, also did have a micro-fridge and a safe, which are both big plusses for me.

    The big knock is that the rooms are simply tiny.  There was no more than 2 1/2 feet of space around the bed in any direction except in one corner that adjoined the hallway to the door and bathroom.  The only place I could even do push-ups and sit-ups prior to going going on a run was in the hallway behind the room door.    OK, so the rooms are small.  That is hardly rare in Atlanta.  But this hotel also did a lot of little things wrong during my stay.

    -The TV was a hi-def TV, but almost none of the channels I visited were hi-def.  Instead, they were stretched standard def channels, which looked pretty horrible.  In 2012, there is no excuse for this.

    -The adjoining door to the next room was unlocked when I checked in.  This is something I always check out of habit, but I believe this is the first time I have ever found this.  That's kind of scary, frankly.

    -Ants in the bathroom (on the 8th floor no less).  Not a lot, but hardly a good thing.

    -The bathroom door (a sliding door) had several large gouge/scratches on it.  I am surprised it had not been replaced or repaired.

    -One of the two main bedside lamps in the room was burned out when I checked in and the provided alarm clock did not work.  I asked for replacements and they did so, but the replacement alarm clock also did not work.  Both had power but both also had non-functioning buttons that prevented an alarm from being set successfully.

    -The shower in the room was one of those fancy corner showers with a 45 degree opening to the rest of the bathroom.  However, the shower curtain was not long enough to fill the entire opening, leading to extra water on the floor.  Also, no bathmat was provided.

    -On my second and last night there, the maid left ONE set of towels in my bathroom.  I took two showers in that period, one after working out and one the next morning.  I didn't appreciate using a damp towel for the second shower.

    So yeah, I must admit I was not impressed.

    I actually (finally) took the time to make a Yelp profile to write a review because my stay at the Glenn Hotel was that great. I was traveling on business and had never been to Atlanta before - meaning I had quite a few questions and requests. The entire staff was accommodating, helpful and thoughtful; a few times, I was even greeted by name at the desk.

    The rooms were nicely decorated and well maintained. The location is a convenient walk to a decent number of places to eat (and drink) and I felt just fine walking around outside the hotel after dark, even alone.

    I'll definitely be back for future trips to Atlanta.

    I was in town for a week at a convention a few blocks away.  Proximity to convention center?  A+, five stars.  Room?  five stars.  Noise level?  NEGATIVE three stars!

    The hotel itself was fantastic but they need to upgrade their windows.  I arrived on a Sunday; there was a concert somewhere nearby because I heard the music as clearly as if it were in my room until midnight.  Then I started noticing the sirens, helicopters and occasional revelers on the street.  I was on the SEVENTH floor and I heard all of this.  I checked in the morning and sure enough they were double paned glass.  i guess they need at least triple.

    The noise level was out of control during my whole stay.  This is the only mark I can make against an otherwise fantastic hotel but it the noise was so bad that it's the only impression that I left with.

    * Based solely on rooftop party*

    A friend of mine told me about this place so I decided to give it a try after leaving The Tabernacle.  While I don't know how often they have rooftop parties, they had one Saturday.  I use the word "party" lightly, it's more like a lounge on the roof.  Upon stepping into the hotel, there was a lounge type area.  They have a bar and a seating area.  In order to get to the roof, you have to take the elevator, in which case there can be a bit of a line.  

    The view from the roof is amazing.  The hotel is situated downtown, a few blocks from the Philips Arena and CNN, so the skyline is right there.  The crowd was diverse.  A DJ was there playing music that was generally alright, some people were getting their dance on.  They also have a bar up there along with 3 bathrooms I was relieved to see because I'd be damn if I was going to wait for the elevator again just to use the restroom.  One of the people working there also told me they have day parties too.  

    Personally, I wouldn't make this my primary destination for the night.  I would, however, make it my start off place for a night out.  By the way, it's free and there's parking by the side of the building and directly across the street.

    It took 15 minutes to check in and I was the only person at the counter.  Then we had to endure music blaring from the dance club upstairs till 1 am.. I'm a Platinum Marriott Member for Marriott. This was my fist and last visit here.

    I came here for their last  "Flip Flop Fridays" event...where they have $5 drink specials. Well...we were under the impression that there were several $5 cocktails, but there's actually only one. This time it was a strawberry margarita. I personally thought it was way too sweet for me, but the people with me enjoyed several of them. The rest of their cocktails range around $10/drink. I had a few mojitos and thought they were tasty, but for the price...not very strong.

    They had a DJ on the roof top and a good amount of seating at tables and the bar.

    Overall...it's a nice place to start your weekend with a cocktail or two. Make sure to wear your flip flops. :)

    The Good, the bad, and the Ugly of the Glenn Hotel.
    The Good: Nice boutique hotel feel.  Rooms are clean, well decorated, and comfy.  The bar is beautiful and the staff is super friendly.  When we checked in they poured us a complimentary adult lemonade because it was so hot outside, and we were obviously winded from walking with our luggage from the MARTA stop.  The rates were very reasonable in my opinion.  The hotel is within walking distance of a TON of attractions( CNN building, the aquarium, the coke museum, Atlanta underground, a small restaurant row, etc.) I was only in Atlanta for 2 days and I was able to see everything that I wanted to see by putting on my walking shoes and heading out the front door.  The sky lounge is awesome, great view if you've never been to Atlanta and haven't seen the skyline.  Glenn's kitchen, the hotel restaurant, has pretty darn good food.  The bread pudding was fabulous, and the coffee is great.  The waffles were kind of blah, but everything else was tasty.
    The bad: The downtown area in Atlanta seems to have "pockets" of good and bad areas.  Unfortunately the Glenn is right next to, and across the street from abandon buildings.  They are run down and dirty.  It was a little disconcerting because I like to walk around to get to know a city and I REALLY had to pay attention because my level of safety felt like it could change from block to block.  I'd be walking through a well maintained, clean, populated area then BAM - the next block is run down, abandon store fronts, and no or few people.  I did not feel afraid, just on alert, that I needed to be aware of my situation.
    The Ugly:  The five points MARTA stop.  I read that it was safe to take the MARTA around town and the fares were reasonable.  Well one of those is correct.  I took the MARTA from the airport and I was not at all uncomfortable on the train.  When I got off the train at the Five Points stop (which is the closest one to the Glenn) I was really surprised at how sketchy it was.  I looked like a total tourist target and I was pretty uncomfortable walking through the area.  It was 2pm, the middle of the afternoon, and I was still getting that sketchy vibe.  The walk to the hotel was about 4 or 5 blocks.  As I started walking to the hotel I met "Marvin".  A 65 year old recovering drug addict who was looking for a donation to the home that he "worked" for.  He followed me the entire way to the hotel.  Horrible way to start.  Thankfully entered the hotel and it was like an oasis.
    I would definitely recommend the Glenn.  I would not recommend taking public transportation.  Take a shuttle or cab instead.

    I live in Atlanta but have been fortunate to stay in many our hotels myself, I have high expectations and don't really like to stay in large chains.

    The Glenn is great- clean, polite staff and amazing roof top bar.  You have got to check out the view...amazing!  I would stay here anytime and support one of Atlanta's smaller boutique hotels.

    Pros
    I could sleep all day with the fantastic black out curtains- best I've seen in a while
    Great Modern Design
    Feather beds
    if possible get a handicab room- they are bigger than others.

    I travel about 6 months out of the year and have stayed in a variety of hotels over the past 3 years.  Hands down Glenn Hotel is the best hotel I have stayed in yet.  As a frequent traveler who travels by herself, safety, security, convenience, and customer service are very important to me.  Glenn got 5 stars on all of these.  

    Safety - the hotel is conveniently located down town in a safe area and they offer valet parking.  The staff is very good at remembering who you are so you can ensure they will look out for you should anything weird or unexpected happen.  The elevators are key activated so if you are not a guest you cannot just get on any floor besides the lobby.

    Convenience - the hotel offers two full bars with some of the best bartenders I've ever encountered.  They do not make drinks, they build them!  If you are familiar with the art of cocktails then you will understand what I mean when i say these bartenders "build" drinks as if they are a piece of art.  And they of course taste wonderful!  My fave is the apple jalapeno (dont judge, trust me its a goodie).  The hotel also has a skylounge which also has a DJ.  It stays open late so for the days I did not feel like partying out in the city I stayed at the hotel and still had a god time. However, my one reservation about the lounge is the music they play.  I wanted to dance and sing along but couldn't because quite frankly the music was wiggity wack (even after trying to make a song request). The hotel offers room service and has a full service restaurant serving breakfast lunch and dinner.

    Rooms - I had the privilege to stay in a king bed room as well as a double handicapp room.  The King bed was comfy and everything is aesthetically pleasing.  The bed is my favorite part because its so comfortable.  The bathroom is very nice and features a window in the shower overseeing the bedroom.  My only reservation about the rooms is that they are a bit on the small side and the window in the shower overseeing the bedroom does not allow for privacy if you are staying in the room with someone who is not your significant other.    if you are traveling with people who are not your significant other and need more privacy I would recommend asking for one of the handicap rooms as it is a traditional closed i bathroom with no window overseeing the bedroom.  

    Customer Service - this is where the hotel takes the crown!  The customer service is like no other.  From the moment you pull up to the valet to the second you are checking out with the front desk.  At every moment someone is smiling, greeting you, and making you just feel great after a long day or touring the city or a long day at work.  During my stay, they had unforeseen electrical problems and instead of having their guests stay in a hotel with no electricity they reimbursed our room for the night, placed us in a nearby hotel (2 blocks down), all meals and drinks bought that evening were complimented, as well as giving a coupon to their partner restaurants nearby.  

    Hope this helps!  And hope you all choose the Glenn the next time you are in ATL.

    The rooftop of this hotel is awesome!  It's super sexy and chic with a great view of the city.  I attended a happy hour mixer after work one evening and it was super fun.  Everyone really enjoyed the drinks, appetizers and the view.  The ambiance created a great environment for people to relax, open up and get to know each other.  I can't wait for spring to get here so I can get back on the rooftop.

    I'm in Atlanta often for work. My recent 3-night stay at the Glenn left me asking: "why have I not stayed here every time?"

    Upfront, I got an exceptional rate on hotels.com ...so, for the price this place impressed me again and again. A few thoughts:

    - Elegant, perfectly done lobby and hotel interior
    - A small, "boutique" hotel
    - Exceptional service and attention to detail (often, "luxury" hotels don't take too kindly to guests who book on hotels.com )
    - Small rooms, but very well designed and tastefully done
    - AMAZING shower - although one wall is a window that looks to the bed (so be comfortable if you're sharing a room)
    - Great toiletries
    - Comfy beds and luxurious linens
    - Wonderful restaurant and lobby bar
    - Desk area not very functional for business travelers and it's also poorly lit

    My favorite place to stay in Atlanta is the Palomar - and this rivals it.

    I normally stay at Hotel Indigo when I am in ATL, but I decided to try Glenn Hotel for their roof top lounge. Unfortunately, there was a cold front all of the sudden and it was 50something degrees. Even if it was open, I am not sure if I would go up. (though now I've learned they have heating lamps... maybe if they give me blankets as well. jk)

    The hotel is located a block away from the CNN center. Convenient for tourists, but the neighborhood is still somewhat sketchy, I wouldn't go out at night and just roam around. 1. It's not safe. 2. The inside of the hotel is so warm and romantic, why leave?

    The valet parking is $26.00 a day/night. Totally worth it in ATL. the garage is right behind the hotel.

    The lounge/living room bar is so much fun. Comfortable seats, very intimate, even romantic. Our bartender was pretty awesome. Though we didn't order anything spectacular... White wine and beer. The decor is chic and inviting.

    Checking in was fun. The guest service agent (hotel lingo for front desk) knew me by my name when I checked in (But it was my first time staying there!). RYAN (the agent) is a mind reader! Friendly and helpful. The elevator requires you a key to push the floors (SAFE), the elevator greets you when the door opens (little creepy when you're tipsy). The hallway lighting was somewhat dim and the foe grass along the hallway was whimsical.

    Inside the room, the theme from the bar/lounge/livingroom'esque is follows with the orange window treatments, dark chocolate furniture pieces. Bathroom is huge, with H2O products, and the lighting can be adjusted (bright to romantic dimmed). The bed was really comfortable, I really didn't want to leave.

    Overall, I am quite shocked that this hotel isn't ranked top 10 in ATL. It's like staying at the W without the W price tag, and minus the snobbery.

    I'd come back next time I have to stay in ATL.

    I recently stayed here for two weeks on a business trip.  I think that Renee, Sylvia, and Rob have thoroughly covered everything about the operations of the hotel, and I agree with everything they have said.  If the hotel existed in a vacuum I would definitely give it five stars.

    The one thing that I haven't seen covered very much in any of the reviews is the location and how it affects your stay, especially on the weekends.  The hotel is located almost directly next to the Georgia Dome / Philips Arena.  This is very convenient if you are staying at the hotel in order to attend an event at that venue, but very inconvenient if you are not.  If there is any event going on at the arena, Centennial Olympic Park Drive and Marietta Street both become packed with vehicles.  This means that getting to and from the hotel in your car suddenly becomes a huge hassle.  

    This also means that traffic cops will be blowing whistles early in the morning when you're trying to sleep in and motorists will be honking their horns (Atlanta drivers are another topic).

    Another point to note is that there must be a fire station withing 2-5 blocks and the trucks and ambulances always seem to drive down Marietta Street when responding to emergency calls.  They're not shy about using their sirens, either.

    If you plan on staying at this hotel over the weekend, I highly recommend finding out if there are any major events scheduled during your stay for the arena or any of the tourist attractions nearby.

    I will definitely stay at this hotel again for business travel during the week, but I will definitely be cautious of any weekend stay-overs here.

    I went out for dinner with some friends at the Glenn recently and had a wonderful experience.  Upon entering, the decor was pleasant, airy and welcoming.  We went to the restaurant, Glenn's Kitchen and were warmly greeted by Sean.  He was very friendly and engaged us in a lovely conversation on the way to our table.  What wonderful customer service.  
    For dinner, my friend and I shared the calamari with ginger relish, drizzled with a creamy and spicy sauce.  It was delicious.  My friend had the burger, which was cooked perfectly and I had the ribeye, which was marvelous.  It had a lovely, smoky grill flavor and was cooked a perfect med rare.  Our server, Tequila, was attentive and had a great personality.
    Not only were the food and drinks delicious, our service was wonderful.  As someone who dines out often, I was delighted that Sean and Tequila made the experience so worth while.  
    I definitely will be returning, possibly to try the trout!

    If you're looking for a boutique hotel in Atlanta, definitely consider the Glenn.  Decor is great, rooms are quaint, service is friendly.  Took the train from the airport; just a couple of blocks from the 5 Points station. Employees were friendly, both at check-in and while enjoying dinner at the downstairs bar. The grilled trout was excellent! Behind the bar, Cliff was attentive while relaxed, and everyone truly seemed to enjoy their job.  Try the Beehive Manhattan for a nice libation to end the night.

    Right on the edge of Centennial park this hotel is ideally located for any stay in Atlanta.  
    I booked here on Kayak.com for the wrong date and then had to call and reset.  While I was talking to the front desk, I discovered this place has an almost 40% discount for law enforcement.  BONUS!  You will have to show your badge on check in, so no trying to fake it, but if you have one, take advantage.  
    The room was luxurious, not huge, but everything I wanted in a urban hotel.  The bed, queen size, may very well have been the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in, and much more comfortable than my bed at home.  There is a simple to use in room digital safe, which I liked.  It was the shower and bathroom that makes this place a dream come true for me. The shower had two separate heads, on high up rain head, and the other a simple massage/spray head that was on the long hose to rinse off well.  There is a frosted window with a beaded curtain on the wall between the bed and the shower, which let in all the natural light from the room's window.  The rest of the bathroom is granite, with stone tiles on the floor, great lighting, with soft papers all around.
    Back outside the room the lobby bleeds into a very comfortable bar area with couches, large windows, and a full selection of drinks.  I found that you can sit here for a few hours reading, sipping on drinks and even have deserts from the kitchen brought over, and these are decadent.
    Upstairs on the roof, there is a very nice bar/lounge area open to the elements, though there is a roof to stop the rain.  The breezes up here bring a nice chill to the air in the early spring, and I would hope help cool the hot summer evenings.  The bar does not open till 6 pm, and it is open to the public.
    Parking is valet, and for the 2 nights I was there, the flat cost was 25 dollars for the entire stay.  Not sure if it is more for longer stays so check that with the front desk.

    First, the service was really great--everyone was polite, efficient, and helpful.

    The hotel is decent overall, but if I were to return to Atlanta,  I wouldn't stay here again. I'd rather spend the extra $16 a night and stay at the Marriott up the road (Glenn Hotel is a Marriott hotel) for more space and better amenities. The rooms here are the smallest I've stayed in in the US. The air conditioner also either didn't work well or was poorly designed. I kept waking up to find that the room had gotten too warm even though the air conditioner was set as low as I could get it. This might have been because of their green technology which, according to the flyer in the room, turns the lights and air conditioner down when you're not in the room. My guess is that there's a motion detector of sorts. Which means that when one is sleeping, and therefore not moving, the room goes on green mode.

    There was another odd feature in my room: a window in the wall between the bed and the shower, with only a bead curtain in it. This means you can see straight into the shower from the bedroom and, straight to the toilet if you forget to close the shower curatain. Now this might be one of the features that some other guests saw as "sexy," but it just isn't my thing.

    Finally, judging from other reviews, the rooftop lounge is a great place to party. It's not so great, however, when you're staying right below it. At least not if you want to fall asleep before 2am.

    I came here to enjoy a drink at the bar and was seriously impressed. Who knew they had such a great craft cocktail scene? From the menu options to the bartenders' favorite concoctions, we were well taken care of. Too bad they closed at 11.

    I'd highly recommend the blackberry concoction I was served, but sadly didn't get a chance to try some of the other gin-based options I was eyeing. The space was admittedly beautiful, with the right amount of wood accents vs. contemporary chicness. I foresee returning here often, as long as it's early. Seriously, I go to hotel bars for late night fun. 11 is far too early to close up shop.

    Congratulations to our daughter Bianca on her BA from GSU which is why we were in town to begin with. The Glenn Autograph hotel is within walking distance of the Georgia Dome as well as a variety of any cuisine of your choice. The staff and management at the Glenn hotel and Glen Kitchen restaurant were outstanding. The menu choices can accommodate any discerning palate. The rooftop bar was yet a completely different experience, including spectacular views of the downtown Atlanta area not to mention the amazing mixologist who made us feel like we were on a tropical island. We highly recommend the Glenn Autograph Marriott location in downtown Atlanta and look forward to returning soon. Special thanks to managers Cynthia and Todd as well as the staff.

    Upscale hotel but the rooms are pretty tiny. The staff is nice but maybe that was because we were visiting for a company event at the Sky Bar on the hotel's rooftop. The Sky Bar was cool, good strong drinks and nice view of Atlanta. I was also impressed by the hotel's valet service, I felt super safe considering the area of downtown the hotel is located in. I would stay at this hotel again, the bed was extremely comfortable which is always my biggest pet peeve with hotels.

    I started this yelping event by booking online. They have a relatively easy website to view the available options, and confirmed my reservation within minutes.

    For starters, one needs to factor in the required $26.00 valet parking fee per day, which will be added to the room charges.

    It is a small hotel, located beside the Centennial Olympic Park.  The parking deck is valet only for guests, which appears at the surface as secure, since the keys must be retrieved from a locked room.  This service is 24 hrs.

    Upon our arrival, we were promptly greeted by the front desk employee, who confirmed our reservation and provided the needed instructions on how to use the keys to access the secure elevators.  One will need a key to go up, but not to go down.

    I have provided some photos of the statues which greet you on your floor....the halls are dimly lit, and faux grass is lining the hallways.

    Upon entering the room, it is quite small, but the colors are very inviting (orange) with dark furniture decor.  The most unusual item to be mentioned is that if you are staying with another, be sure they are a significant other as the shower is made of glass to the bedroom...basically it is like having your own peepshow while one takes a shower.  Oh yeah, if you need to say, take a dump, you can only have privacy by closing the shower curtain. (Just an FYI!)

    So the tv is a nice flat screen mounted on the wall beside one window facing the CNN building. Since I am from the Big"C" (Charlotte), I was very unaware that huge LCD advertising signs were possible and mounted on the buildings in direct view of our windows.  It was like two 2 story flashing billboards advertising 24 hours, and let me just say, LED lights are bright.  Thank goodness that the Orange drapes were thick enough to dampen the light, but then again, at shower time it appeared to be a nice peep show with ambient lighting.

    Well, I give it a solid four stars, as the location was great, it was close enough to walk to many of our destinations, and the staff was friendly, courteous, and most of all it was clean.  At the time of booking the rates were very reasonable, and I would definitely stay here again.

    Our experience was just ok. I am glad we only stayed for one night because there are definitely nicer places to stay in the city.  I was expecting a lot more.

    We valet parked for $28 which was fine because it was covered and I felt like my car would be safe for the night.

    The lobby/elevator decor is nice and modern. They have little steps everywhere which is kind of annoying when you have heels. You have to use your room key to access the elevator which is good for security.

    The front desk staff was nice and sent us on our way to our room. Our room was a little on the small side but had all the amenities we were looking for (fridge in the room, coffeemaker, flat screen TV, desk...etc). Most importantly it had a clean bed.

    The towels in our room were still damp. I was a little shocked by the shower because it was tile and had black mold that needed to be scrubbed out thoroughly.  The shower also had a glass backdrop which was a little awkward when taking a shower with another person in the room. Our view of the city was just okay. The lighting in the room was nice and romantic..

    We went up to the sky lounge but it literally took us like 30 minutes to find where it was. There were no signs any where and nothing in the guest directory of our TV guide. We called down to the front desk and was notified that we had to take a separate elevator to get there. They should have more signs on how to get there. Luckily the drinks were strong so I did not mind it too much. The view is great and they have a nice lounge. It was not crowded at all for a Saturday night.

    Afterwards we came back to our room to order room service. The food was just ok, nothing special. Breakfast in the morning was really good though.

    This hotel is in the heart of downtown and super convenient if you are attending an event at Philips arena.

    Not my favorite area of Atlanta, but the Glenn is a pretty cool Boutique Hotel near Philips Arena and CNN.  Rooftop bar with a nice view overlooking Centennial Olympic Park.  This alone is worth a fly by and tossing down a few drinks. If you do stay the gym is like a little stone dungeon.  Go for a walk or run in the park instead.

    I've stayed at some nice places in bigger
    cities, but if I had to pick, I'd go with the Glenn every time. My wife and I toured the south for our vacation and for our last night before our flight back to Silicon Valley we stayed at the Glenn.
    Every experience was positive. When we arrived at 1 we were warmly greeted and told that our room was already available. We were really made to feel that everything was taken care of. We mentioned that we had an early flight and that we would need a cab around 6 to take us to the airport. The hostess let us know that the valet was on duty 24/7 and to just call down in the morning.
    Are the rooms smaller than usual as some reviews say? Yes, it is an older building and people didn't used to need 700 sq. feet for a hotel room. We had a king bed and a windowed shower. The room was not cramped and the space is well used. The decor and lighting were excellent and set the tone for a relaxing and romantic evening. The view was brilliant.
    My wife and I tried out the bed and almost cancelled our dinner plans at the Spence because it was SO COMFORTABLE!
    Even though it was stormy after dinner we went to try out the rooftop bar. The view was priceless and the dj was not obnoxiously loud. Thankfully the clientele was an older crowd (we are only 27-28) who sat making pleasant conversation not young people grinding and looking for action. Our drinks were excellent and compared to CA reasonably priced. We were even able to charge the bill to our room.
    In the morning I called down to ask for a cab and was told that one had been specifically called for us and was waiting downstairs whenever we were ready.
    Checkout was so simple and ended up being much less than the hold they had put on my card at the start.
    The Glenn MADE our trip to Atlanta. We will definitely be back and are excited to check out other Autograph Collection hotels.

    For the most part I enjoy traveling. The exception is when I have to travel for work and my boss isn't willing to spend a little more for me to be comfortable (actually, sometimes they wouldn't spend anything). I definitely appreciate larger hotels and I'm a sucker for chains like Starwood brands. I like that I get points for spending the night, that they keep up with my records, their service is consistent, and I know what I'm getting.

    The Glenn is one-of-a-kind and doesn't fit that description, but they still do things well. They're one of the Autograph Collection Independent Hotels and participate in the Marriott Rewards program, so if you're a points whore like me you can still get your fix.

    This hotel is charming and a lot of detail and money went into its development. A flat screen TV, lots of different lighting options (on the level of a custom built home), and a big, soft bed are all features in their rooms. It's also surprisingly quiet for being so old and surrounded by streets that are always busy.

    Some of their fees and payment policies aren't very traveler friendly, but that's not unusual for an in-town, boutique hotel. The valet comes out to more than $60 for a weekend and the daily incidental deposit is $150 regardless of how you pay. They run so many discounts I guess they have to make sure the get paid somehow. Speaking of discounts, be sure to check their website for specials as they're always offering discounted rates and package deals.

    This is such a cute hotel with friendly staff.  There is a rooftop bar where you can see a great view of the ferris wheel.  This hotel is also walking distance from centennial park, world of coca-cola, GA dome, CNN center, and the aquarium.  It doesn't seem too safe to walk around alone at night though.  

    The downside of this hotel was that they only offer valet parking at almost $30/day.

    If they would get a promoter to get a theme going for the weekends  this place would be NICE! I advise you bring a group of friends and enjoy each others company because the crowd here is not my style maybe yours you just have to go and find out.

    They upgraded me to a top floor suite for the week.  I guess it pays to be platinum status.  The hotel is small but backed by a Marriott.  So it has all the benefits of being a Marriott chain but still has all the boutique charm.  The hotel has gorgeous decor.  Instead of water glasses with your ice bucket you have martini glasses and a shaker.  Free continental breakfast if you're gold or above in the restaurant downstairs, but it's a selection of 2 items on the menu.  Still pretty good.  And between the hours of 530-630 there's free wine in the restaurant.

    Terrific hotel in a convenient location in downtown Atlanta. The staff was attentive the entire weekend and even greeted us with a drink on the house at check in. The room was small but well situated and comfortable. We did not try the restaurant, but did spend some time in both the SkyLounge roof top bar and the lobby bar. The lobby bar was far more our speed and priced affordably.

    We'll definitely be back, in fact we just booked a second stay when we will be in town for a concert and our anniversary.

    Idk about the hotel stay. A friend and I decided to attend Wind Down Wednesday in the park. Walking distance from the CNN parking garage. Easy.

    Sat at the bar, didn't drink alcohol but we wanted to eat. The lunch and dinner prices are significantly different for no reason. My friend ordered the Chicken Lime sandwich on ciabatta bread. Pretty good. I ordered the Shrimp & grits. That was decent also but too many onions & celery. I wasn't expecting 'down home' flavor though. Overall our bartender/server Leo was cool. We didn't have to ask for much.

    After 6pm you can sit on the rooftop. Nice.

    My wife surprised me with a night at The Glenn Hotel for my birthday. We had excellent service from the time we pulled up to valet. Check-in was easy, the interiors were modern and eclectic, and our suite was large and very nice.

    One of the best features of the Glenn is the rooftop bar. It's easily one of the best views in Atlanta. Overall, I would highly recommend the Glenn. Especially if you're attending anything downtown.

    This is an excellent Marriott property, if you are looking for a stay which is not the usual full service Marriott hustle & bustle. Terrific little boutique hotel, in a convenient part of Atlanta. It is an old hotel, which has been renovated with modern décor and touches. Priced right too.

    I found the front desk staff to be EXCELLENT. I made a request for something and one of them delivered it personally, within minutes, to my door. So cool. Thank you, Delli! She should be promoted, because she "gets it".

    The place is cozy with a small lobby area that includes reception and "living room" (bar area). Service and food at the bar were very good. I did not eat in the restaurant. Valet parking is $28 (probably a little steep), but it is quick and easy right off the side door. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Room is somewhat small, but has all the needed components including an extremely comfy bed, nice workspace, plenty of natural light, flat screen TV and a bathroom with plenty of space. Hallways are dark, with soft lighting and unique decorations. Kinda' cool, but maybe not for everybody.

    Did not get to the Sky Lounge during my stay, but hear it is a nice stop.

    Now the downsides...no concierge lounge for Elite members and no Market to buy small needs. Probably should add the Market, with the absence of Concierge. Also, the area immediately outside is a tad shady after dark, including my being approached by no less than 4 homeless dudes looking for money (I only stayed 2 nights!). Although within walking distance of many things in downtown Atlanta, I would suggest a cab ride at night for those with little street experience.

    Overall, I will absolutely be back again.

    Naughty window to the shower in the bedroom. Bed was super soft and clean. Great view of downtown from our room.  Fun hotel in a great location.  Pleasant staff. Really enjoyed our stay.

    Here are a few nitpicks-
    1. Parking is expensive at $28/ day and you have no other choice, it's valet only.
    2. One night we called down to the front desk to get a cork screw to open a bottle of wine.  They couldn't find one.
    3.  The shaker in the little bar in our room still had sticky residue on it from the previous guests. Obviously not cleaned.
    4. The music at the Sky Bar upstairs is ridiculously loud. I mean ear damage loud. Not enjoyable. And I'm not even that old.

    Omgoodness! We had an AMAZING time at the Glenn Hotel / Sky Lounge on Saturday, August 16th, 2014. My close friend was celebrating her 50th Birthday and we threw her a surprise party.  It was the perfect location with a great view, music, food and staff. Aaron did a great job helping us set everything up and Victor / Justice were phenomenal with the service and accommodating our group.

    I do several major events throughout the year and always try to find great venues that will work with me and be willing to go the extra mile. I must say, the Glenn Hotel is definitely the place to go and I would highly recommend it.

    Thanks so much for everything!!! Looking forward to our next event!!!

    I like to consider myself a hotel-snob. The Glenn Hotel was just OK. Don't get me wrong it was cute( decor)  but it is really over rated. Upon arriving we went to have a drink the bar. Or waitress did not seem engaged at all. She came to take our order and ended up telling us they were out of  their most popular signature drinks, which put a bad taste in our mouth. We thought we would order a bite to each...menu was not very appealing. To be honest, we went next door to the Hudson Grille, sat outside, made some new friends and had a great time.  **Let me be clear - this review does not include the SkyLounge. The lounge was closed**

    I had high expectations for this hotel as the site for a business meeting, with lunch, as part of a large international conference.

    Expectations were not met.  Although a boutique establishment, the Glenn Hotel is part of the Marriott organization.  So, I anticipated experienced staff with some degree of finesse.

    Unfortunately, from the get-go, we were disappointed.  The conference room was not set up at the agreed time, and the designated staff member was bringing in food and drink as our colleagues were beginning the meeting.  There were not sufficient outlets in the floor to power the assorted laptops.  Fortunately (sarcasm) we were allowed to pay 10 bucks per power strip to get everyone up and running.  In this day and age, crummy access to electricity is just not good.

    The food was marginal---and the cookies were teeth-breakers.  One daring soul did munch on a cookie, and I could hear the sound from across the room.

    Coffee ran out during the meeting and it took quite some time to hunt someone down for more coffee and still more time to get some snacks.

    Finally, it took more than an hour to settle the bill----which was merely signing off on an invoice, because our dedicated staff member disappeared.  To top it off, the records were not up to date, so our server had no idea how much we had paid in deposit, that we had a purchase order set up, etc., etc.

    Simply a hassle to deal with.  Think twice.

    What a fun little hotel in Hot Lanta.  I was shocked at the kind reception I got from the hotel employees and the service that I received from about every person I ran into.  The price was fair and the service was excellent.  The rooms are updated and clean.  The only issue that I had was the noise from the street.  It was hard to sleep in when every truck that drove by made the room echo.  But the kind people that work here trumped the lack of sleep I received.

    Had dinner w/my husband@Glenn's kitchen last night.  I was pleasantly surprised. For starters, we had the lobster cake&deviled eggs. The lobster cake was very chunky&the filling was flavorful. For dinner, I had the pork chops&he had the shrimp&grits w/a side a scallops. The scallops were delicious! The pork chops were grilled to perfection&they had just the right amount of seasonings to make them savory. I don't know what marinade is used on the pork chops, but it was sooooo good! Overall, we had a great experience&the server, Ayleen,made it even better with her attentiveness. It's an added bonus to eat here considering afterwards you can have cocktails on the rooftop and enjoy breathtaking views of the Atlanta skyline.

    My husband and I visited Atlanta for our wedding anniversary.  I didn't know what to expect, and was surely surprised when we stepped into this cute little place. It's in close proximity of CNN, the aquarium,  the farris well and Centennial Olympic Park. The staff was amazing. Making sure we were comfortable and they even remembered who we were when checking out. We were offered drinks when checking in and they even have nightly wine tastings. We will definitely stay here again on any future trips.

    Booked here in advance for dragoncon 2014. Checked in on Thursday 28 August.  Nice folks all around.  Except for one breakfast server on Friday morning.  I was surprised by the host asking about a breakfast voucher.  After asking front desk attendants how do I get a breakfast voucher.  I was told it was special event and vouchers are not available during that time.   After thinking about how much I paid for three nites at $1200.  I am very pissed to say the least about how greedy a hotel can be about receiving $20 breakfast for two which was paid out of pocket as $33.  Really. I do not understand this.  Next time I will make sure that I do not stay at this greedy place and will inform my friends in the dragoncon council how I was treated.  Unfortunately, this was the only place with a vacancy at the time.  

    The hotel room was too small and could not get the temp set low enough to cool the room off or get the unit to come on.  Somehow it came on in the middle of the nite and it was an ice box in there.  Mold in the shower tile grout.  Toilet was wedged in so an adult could not comfortably sit without a wall corner pushing into your knee left knee.  Best feature was dimmable lighting.  Elevator was out Friday nite so we had to use express sky lounge elevator to get back to room.  It was fixed by Saturday morning.  

    Hotel lounge and breakfast area was very nice except for the uncomfortable hard chairs in dining area.

    Stayed here with a family of three. Unexpectedly, without prior knowledge, we were booked into a handicapped room.
    The shower head stopped just below my chest and was only tall enough for my ten year old.
    We called to see if we could change rooms and all they offered was 1 room with 1 queen size bed. If I were to switch, why would I choose a smaller room with one bed?
    Whomever I talked to at room service offered complementary breakfast for all of us, but would talk this over with her manager and call us back. She calls back and offers breakfast for 1. There's more than 1 person in this room! Eventually we got breakfast for two...eventually.
    To make the night worse, when showering...the handicapped shower was very uncomfortable and afterwards there was water by the toilet and near the sink.
    This morning, we went to the kitchen to redeem our vouchers. The menu in the room made the vouchers seem reasonable for our inconvenience. The menu we received at the kitchen basically had fruit and breads. For almost $200 a night, my experience was very crappy. Extremely disappointed having stayed at plenty Marriott hotels over my lifetime for vacations and business trips.

    Unfortunately I had such a bad experience here! My teammates and I arrived for a huge conference and for some reason our rooms had been cancelled - with no notice from the reservations department that made the reservation OR the hotel.

    They just told us that there was nothing they could do and turned us to the lobby to try to book another hotel.

    Fine, I get it. But they weren't accommodating. A co-worker then asked to plug in his phone since we were now stranded across the country and they said it would cost $75 to charge his phone.... I mean come on?

    So anyways, this would be the last place I look to book next time I come into town. Just an unfortunate situation all together.

    Our stay at the Glenn Hotel was great, we stayed one night. Upon arriving, we gave our car to the valets, keep in mind it is $28 dollars a day for this- the price for convenience, some might say. As soon as we checked in the desk attendant noticed there were two of us and offered us a room with two queen size beds, which was a nice touch. Our rooms were very clean, although not very large, which suited us perfectly because we knew we would not be spending much time in them; our view from the window was very nice. I would like to take a moment to commend the excellent customer service at this hotel, all the staff were very nice to us & one person, in particular, really went above and beyond. His name was Jaime, he gave us a grand tour of the upper-most part of the hotel, the rooftop bar, which was closed at the time but he took us anyway. We had a very nice time, we would stay here again for sure!

    P.S. Rates, apparently, fluctuate tremendously at this hotel (maybe Atlanta in general as well). We paid $130 before taxes for this stay and called a week later and were quoted $340 before taxes for the SAME room for one night.

    Pros:
           Clean
           Friendly Staff
           Great bar
           Good location
           Comfortable Beds
           Valet Option (although pricey)
    Cons:
           No bathtub, in the room we paid for, only shower
           Valet was a little pricey

    I had to factor in everything in order to come up with three stars instead of a higher rating. I'm staying at The Glenn for a week and during my stay, they have been refinishing the wood floors. The floors look beautiful but you can't escape the smell of the chemicals used. For at lease two days of my stay, I felt nauseous and had a bad headache in the middle of the night. The fumes seeped under my door on the 10th floor. I'm sure the maintenance of their hotel is very important but that chemical smell can't be good for you.

    Also, and this is not the fault of the hotel BUT there is a train that runs very close to the hotel and seemingly all hours of the day and night. It blares that EXTREMELY LOUD train horn SEVERAL times as it comes thru!!!! And when I say it blares VERY LOUD & VERY LONG, I am not exaggerating. My room was on the back side of the hotel overlooking the parking lot for CNN. Maybe it's louder on this side...I don't know. But I do know there isn't any sound proofing used around the windows and in the walls to keep excess noises out. I heard EVERYTHING outside. The cars, the trains, even birds flying by. I know this is an old historic building so I guess that's something you'll have to deal with. As for the rooms, nice but very very tiny and mine resembles the smell of moth balls. The bedding was cozy, comfy, and clean and I ate at Glenn's Kitchen twice. Both times, the food was decent. I was in town for work and spent most of my nights exhausted and just wanting a good nights sleep. If you're looking to rest well, I'd stay in the Omni instead.

    The location of this hotel is convenient and excellent for the tourist- right by cnn, world of coke, the aquarium, peach tree street, and the park!
    -valet only at $28 a day
    -shower is huge and the bath products are awesome
    -drink shaker in room (although ours was not cleaned) and martini glasses
    -super comfy bed, pillows, and sheets
    -rooftop bar has a nice view of downtown atl but pales in comparison to others
    -offered a mojito of some sorts upon checkin
    -free breakfast for marriott elite members but a minimum selection from the menu
    Overall, nice boutique hotel with great decor and pretty standard.  The staff is nice, nothing over the top or under.  Weekends draw a mischievous crowd due to the rooftop bar and walls are a little thin so if you're not adding to the party, you might want to consider a different hotel on the weekend.

    This is a very nice little hotel. For the price, you cannot beat it in downtown Atlanta. The staff is professional and very attentive. Even the smallest, least expensive room is really upscale and comfortable.

    I enjoyed my week in Atlanta far more than I thought I might, and my four nights at the Glenn were the icing on the cake.

    Upon check in, expect to be greeted by friendly, professional staff as well as a complimentary drink. I was provided with a bottled water when I stopped by in the morning to drop off my luggage, and a mojito when I returned that afternoon to check in.

    The rooms aren't especially spacious, but had everything I needed - and the bed was by far the most comfortable I've ever slept in. I seriously want to buy that bed for my house! The bathroom is more than adequate, with a beautiful walk in shower, fun picture window thing, and nice soaps. Oh, and Starbucks coffee in room! That was a great perk.

    As if all this isn't enough for a hotel these days, the Glenn also offers free wine hour from 5:30 - 6:30 (a couple selections of red and white will be set out for hotel guests), and - for those of you who are Gold or Platinum Elite - you'll have a free continental breakfast in the morning. The breakfast consists of two choices off their menu, and I very highly recommend the fruit and yogurt thing with honey... the grits were good, too. If you're in a hurry, they will pack up your selections to go.

    We didn't make it up to the rooftop bar, but it's there if you're so inclined. I might skip dinner in the restaurant and grab a burger from the hole in the wall across the street... honestly one of the best burgers I've ever had.

    Enjoy your stay!

    The best hotel in Atlanta ... and possibly anywhere else!

    This was our fifth annual stay at the Glenn hotel. Every year, starting with our wedding night, my wife and I return here to celebrate our anniversary. Every time, the staff manages to exceed our expectations.

    Here are some of the highlights of this (and past) stays: surprise room upgrades, flowers on the bed, chocolate covered strawberries, champagne, welcome cocktails, incredible room accommodations, delicious in-hotel restaurant, fantastic roof  bar with the best view of Atlanta, and - best of all - a staff (including standouts like Cynthia, Jonathan, and Uriah) that genuinely cares about making your stay memorable.

    This year, to celebrate our fifth visit, the Glenn gave us one of the best nights of our marriage. Beyond all of the incredible surprises, they gave us a bouquet of flowers and a congratulatory card signed by all of the staff!

    I also want to add that, although we tip normal amounts, we are not big spenders. In fact, my wife and I are both fairly-broke grad students. We are paying package rates and often times only opting for smaller rooms. Still, the Glenn always rolls out the red carpet for us.

    If you are planning a wedding night stay (or any other type of romantic evening in the Atlanta area) you would be making a mistake to book anywhere else. Book a room, let the concierges know the reason for your stay, and watch them go above and beyond the call of duty. You'll understand why I took the time to brag on this amazing hotel.

    I loved the restaurant at the Glenn. I've been before for drinks but truly enjoyed my lunch meal.

    On a recent weekday, two of us headed for lunch. The service was excellent. Let's start there. The waitress, Janice maybe? was a phenomenal server with great recommendations. (She had shoulder length locks in case I've gotten the name wrong.)

    We ordered a grilled watermelon salad -- refreshing -- braised short ribs -- awesome. I mean awesome. I mean tasty awesomeness. Meat falling off the bone, full of flavor over some mashed potatoes.Think great comfort food. Then I had the shrimp tacos. Also well done.

    The cook here has a defter touch than I'd predict from a Hotel restaurant. He (or She) has a nouveau Southern sensibility that is more high end than I had predicted.

    But the coup-de-etat was the Bread Pudding. Honestly, the top was like heaven on pudding. That should be sold everywhere.

    The ambiance in the restaurant is nice. Not quite the uber sexiness the rooftop is known for. But the food was phenomenal and the downtown vibe was appreciated.

    Get the ribs and the bread pudding and you'll appreciate your trip.

    I stayed here for night on a business trip. The service was excellent when I came in. They treated me like I was a very special guest. They gave me a welcome mojito drink which was free and a generous amount of alcohol. The place was perfect for one person the bed was suuuuper comfy. I had a great view of the city facing the CNN building. The entire room was cozy and comfortable.

    This hotel has a genuine historic art to it. For some it may not be the best selection if that doesn't appeal to you but I loved it. It reminded me of the tower of terror decorating style without the cobwebs in Disney's Hollywood studios.

    The only few complaints I have is it was entirely clean a few pieces of hair and dirt. Also, the navigation in the hotel was challenging. They had one elevator to get the the gym which was in the basement and if you were in the wrong elevator you couldn't get there. There wasn't a pool which I thought there was. I didn't like that they didn't have a bathtub in the bathroom. The information listed was just vague and not very informationally informative. Although, they tell you everything in the beginning but there are no signs in the hotel to really direct you cause who is going to remember everything they tell you at once.

    Otherwise, it was a great stay, beautiful view comfortable bed. I would defiantly stay again now that I know my way around.

    We loved this hotel. Nice spot for tourists who want to see the city, fair prices and excellent service. From the valet boy, to the reception and further. Only thing we disliked were the service, food and prices and the Skylounge.

    On arrival we asked the valet boy to give us some extra time to unpack and check the car because the next day we would be returning it after a 2 week roadtrip. No problem, no rush. And in the evening he parked our car in the front because we had to leave in the middle of the night.

    We were welcomed at the reception with a cocktail, and on departure (at night) with coffee. Complimentary water in the room. Friendly and accomodating staff. Nice, crowded lobby, beautiful decorated hotel and rooms. And the elevator is operated with your room key.

    Rooms are not very big, but well equipped. For the first time I had the feeling that somebody really thought the travellers needs through. Enough outlets in handy spots. Shelves to put your stuff on. Both in the room and the bathroom. And a perfect bed and shower with thick towels. That's what's important to me. Clean, a good bed and shower. Nothing more.

    And yes, we agree with other Yelpies, after dark the neigbourhood feels a little creepy for tourists but all the hotels in this area face this problem. But maybe that's just my imagination and nothing will happen.

    And excuse any grammar and spelling mistakes. English is not my first language. And if that isn't bad enough, my Apple device keeps changing words into 'proper Dutch'. Yes, you've guessed right, my first language.

    Great location if you want to be downtown.  It is right by CNN.  Lots of places you can walk to for dinner.  The hotel itself is pretty nice, the rooms were modern and they even upgraded me once I arrived to a two room suite, which was awesome.

    Can I please give it ten stars?!  

    This was by far one of the best hotels I have stayed in, and I certainly travel more than my fair share.  I prefer boutique hotels and B&Bs for their quaint ambience, local advice, usually amazing food and amenities.  This was a Marriott partner with so much of a finger on the pulse of customer service, others could learn a lot even within their own brand (it is an autograph collection Marriott which prides itself on each location being unique).  

    A surprise welcoming mojito along with welcome cupcakes and incredibly helpful staff, this was all the norm regardless of your,adroit rewards level.  The "living room" lounge did feel like someone's upscale home.   Very comfy banquettes and tables by the bar.  The rooms were nicely sized and beautiful views if you can score an upgrade.  Very safe area as well with centennial park and the attractions and restaurants and congress convention center literally out the front door!

    Breakfast was a nice eat with a smaller a la carte menu that was complimentary for most guests, if they don't give you a voucher at checkin, ask!  It is not a guarantee but for many rewards members they will provide one, a nice selection of eggs, fresh fruit and almost too tall juice servings!

    The roof top bar is fantastic with a great free wine and beer social hour for guests each night and an easy place to meet up with locals or business meets.  Indoor and outdoor seating and a small plates menu too.

    Definitely a must try in Atlanta no matter what you are in town for!  I will not hesitate to stay again and make myself a regular! Great job by the entire staff, clean, hospitable and memorable!

    Highly recommend this boutique Marriott Autograph property in downtown Atlanta.  The staff are amazing, friendly, and go above and beyond to take care of the guests.  

    My recommendations to improve the property would be to transition the root top bar into a little bit more classy environment.  Its a great space, but we really think you are missing it with the current decor and usage.  The only other issue was the very strong smell in the lobby bar area.  Its some kind of scent, but its very very strong.  

    Otherwise, highly recommend the property.  We will stay there again.

    I've stayed here a few times. Always upgraded to a suite. The rooms are very romantic. From glass showers in the master to the mood lighting, perfect for that special night. Rooftop bar with excellent views of downtown. A few things are annoying. The fridge has never worked regardless of which room they put me in. Calling for maintenance has never worked either.

    Overall, not too bad. Some quirkiness but tolerable.

    I'm a huge fan of the rooftop bar (fabulous view of Centennial and the ferris wheel) on this lovely boutique hotel; but hadn't had the opportunity to stay in a room until last night. I'm so happy that I finally did!

    The customer service at this location is beyond stellar. Uriah, the concierge, was very gracious and welcoming w a wonderful sense of humor. The bartenders were extremely attentive and very talented. I also got the best night's sleep I'd had outside of my own bed ever- the bed was just that comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the ambiance set perfectly by the jazz and warm color scheme of Glenn's Kitchen.

    I highly recommend  coming here- even for a staycation. This hotel will give you a whole new appreciation for Atlanta and for personal pampering!
