History

Established in 1911.

We're Atlanta's Most Historic Midtown Hotel
To be great, a city must have a great hotel, a grand hotel. When Atlanta was coming into its own in the early 20th century that hotel was The Georgian Terrace Hotel. With its floor-to-ceiling windows, crystal chandeliers and white marble columns, The Georgian Terrace had an elegance Atlanta hadn't known before. When the hotel opened its doors in glamorous Midtown nearly a century ago, it opened them to some very notable guests, including President Calvin Coolidge, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Tallulah Bankhead. In 1939, The Georgian Terrace hosted the premiere gala of Gone with The Wind. In the 1970s, concert promoter Alex Cooley turned our Grand Ballroom into the famed Electric Ballroom, hosting concerts by musicians such as Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, and Patti Smith. And in 1986, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Great place to stay.  Stayed in a suite with all the comforts. The wrap around sidewalk-porch-veranda is great for people watching making the next big deal or relaxing and sunning. If you walk in the neighborhood, beware it can be a little edgy but down town in any major city you need to keep your ears and radar up. The Fox Theatre is directly across the street. Trip plans included The Georgian and The Fox it was perfect. Walking from a wonderful room to one of the finer theatres in the country a wonderful performance. Only problem show was at 8 over at 10:30 walked back to The Georgian (with 5000 other people) and thought hmm what for late dinner .... Nope they close the kitchen at 10:30 had a drink at the bar, went up to the room to order Room Service and nope they close room service at 11 PM. I would suggest to the management that people from later time zones visit. Seemed extraordinary and I do not understand where you have such a huge captive audience and close early??? So should you go to the theatre. Eat first or pack your suitcase with energy bars.

to share with us  We attended a wedding last night at the georgian terrace. the service was absolutely awful. the waiter was auctioning off food and rude. the server didn't seem to care about the guest or trying to make it a special occasion. i was very unimpressed and for such a nice hotel in downtown atlanta i expected a lot more and would never return again or recommend to anyone to stay there. the best part was coming and leaving your door man was amazing!!! if i had my wedding there i would have been embarrassed also the food was over cooked.

I can not speak for the food at the hotel but the rooms are spacious and cozy.  We had a 2 bedroom suite which was huge!  Had everything, kitchen, washer & dryer, living room, made my place back home look sorry.  The staff was friendly and sooooo polite, I am not used to that, so 2 thumbs up for the stay!

The hotel is lovely, but having never stayed there, I can't say much about the rooms or service.  I came to eat at the Savoy, but had to wander around the beautiful space once I caught a tiny glimpse.  I'm a sucker for old brick and the Georgian has it in spades.  It was built in 1911 and combines old with new.  There is a strange (and huge) atrium in the center, that must go up 15 stories.  When you walk in from the restaurant, it feels a bit like you're in Grand Central Station - most of the building looks like it may have been outside at one point, and they added an enclosed addition on later (probably not ture, but that's how it feels).  There is marble and tile and brick, and huge mirrored "windows" all over.  Something about it felt a tiny bit off, and I can only assume it's the blend of the old and new feeling details.  There is a lovely salon that is exactly what you'd expect to find at a hotel called The Georgian in the heart of Atlanta.   The cast of Gone with the Wind stayed here in 1939 during the Atlanta premiere.  Which you know, woo.
I wouldn't  mind staying here on my next trip out.

Whenever I need to go to Atlanta (mid-town) on business, I stay at The Georgian Terrace.  This hotel is right across the street from The Fox Theater.  It was also the location for the premier showing of Gone with the Wind.  At one point, this fine hotel was turned into condos.  At some later time, someone decided to turn this back to it's original grandeur and turned it back into a hotel.  What is unique are the rooms!!!   I have been in a regular suite and an upgraded suite.  The regular suite is like a small apartment - you have a bedroom with sitting area, a kitchen, laundry (washer/dryer), walk in closets and bath.  The upgraded suites include a huge living room and kitchen.  Also, bedroom is in a circular turret with windows all around.  The rates are very good for the space you get.  The beds are comfortable and the flat screen TVs are located in both the bedroom and living room.  I always recommend this place to anyone traveling to mid-town Atlanta.  It is also a great romantic getaway if you buy tickets to a Broadway type show - you just have to walk across the street to The Fox Theater!

The Georgian Terrace is one of those you must experience while in Atlanta. I get the whole antique and historic look thing, but the room was just ugly, old, unattractive and just out dated. For the cost and all the press about this hotel, I was quite disappointed that the rooms were so NOT sexxy. The location was great, especially because my evening plans included The Fox Theatre and Midtown dining, but an update and remodel is a definite order!  Now I'd do the hotel bar for drinks ONLY!  The food has not bee that great on several occassions.

I absolutely adore the Georgian Terrace and it is now my new favorite in Atlanta! The location is perfect, and for someone who appreciates art and history, this is the ideal location to get your creative fix.

I stayed there to celebrate my birthday and the suites are surprisingly enormous! They have full kitchens (not just a kitchenette) so its also great for families or extended stay trips.

The room I was in faced the Fox and had a small balcony off the living/dining area....quite romantic. The beds are huge and they have the super comfortable TempurPedic ones. The room service is fast, reasonable and the staff is super polite.

I really like the noon checkout since many hotels are switching to 11:00 a.m. now. I also enjoyed the complimentary Wi-Fi service and the AJC newspaper left at the door (vs. the Wall Street Journal at some other hotels I've stayed in).

Considering all you get for "free", the room rates are very reasonable, but what I didn't like was the PARKING! I paid $22 for less than 24 hours! For me, it would be cheaper to take a taxi there and back since I don't live too far from the area. Plus, they only take cash which had me digging for change in my ashtray since I rarely carry over $20 with me. For that, I must take off one star.

if you are looking for an affordable, family friendly hotel or romantic weekend retreat,  you'll definitely love the place.

We were booked for a double room and because the hotel was full we where upgraded to a suite. The upgraded room had two bedrooms a separate kitchen with full size frig. Microwave, dishwasher, and the room even had a washing Machine. We had a step out balcony in the small room with a queen size bed but with no phone or tv. The larger room had a tv and king size bed. The living room was large and eat in dinning room. The decorations looked as they had been thrown in the room and all the furniture was out dated. The bathroom was 80's bilders grade quality but kept clean. The shower and tub where one piece.   When we tried to use the wireless it was not working then we called the front desk and they gave us the number to at&t and to us to call about it. They also said they had no way of checking the Internet on the property b/c non of their computers have the web. The main reason why the hotel got 3 stars was because of how large the room was and the amenities of the room, but the room still needs updates (I would be upset if I paid full price for the suite and that's what I got but bc it was a free upgrade I enjoyed it).

I stayed in this hotel this past weekend.  I feel really torn about doing this review.   If you have seen my reviews in the past I am 100% honest.  I tell my experience as it happens and I offer real suggestions.   The hotel in itself offers charm and grace. The hotel staff is phenomenal who I can tell love their job and helping people.  The hotel is centrally located across from Fox theater and close to Marta stations.  Oh and let's not forget walking distance from Gladys Knight Chicken and Waffles.  Football fans this hotel is close to the Georgia Dome and Georgia Tech stadiums.  This hotel is not too far from Coca Cola, Underground Atlanta and Turner Field.    My advice if staying in this hotel is to upgrade to a suite.  A suite in this hotel has a full kitchen, living room, two separate rooms for each bed , a full washer and dryer and spectacular views of the city. Okay let's get down to why I am torn over this review.  I had to call the hotel maintenance three times to get my toilet fixed.  The toilet would not flush.  That issue alone was TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE.  My advice to the hotel is not give rooms to guest that has issues with the toilet.  I can be 99.9% certain that the problems that I was having in my room with the toilet was not the first time.  Now moving on to the parking.  My suggestion to guest is to not drive because like I said earlier the hotel is centrally located (so you can walk or take public transportation).   You can ride the Marta train from the airport and walk a couple of blocks to the hotel.  But if you do drive(like I did) I must warn you about the hotel parking.  First you will get charged $25 per day (which I noticed that almost all hotels in Atlanta charges for parking).  Secondly my compliant is that the hotel shares the parking spaces with another hotel, Fox theater and general public parking.  The hotel guest will sometimes have to park on a lower level in the parking garage.   My suggestion to the hotel is that they should reserve spaces for their hotel guest so they won't feel(as I did) like persons who want to park for a couple of hours.  Oh and I also felt that the parking attendants (not sure if they worked for the hotel) were a bit rude.  So you ask would I stay there again? After a long hard deliberation I would have to honestly say that I am not sure.  As stated previously I am torn because of the charm of the hotel, the staff and character of the hotel.  But the constant problems with the bathroom and parking has me on the fence.  Maybe if you stay there you might have a better room than I did and you may not drive.  I just wanted to tell you guys the good, bad and ugly of this hotel to help you make a decision on your hotel choice.

My wife and I are on the last day of a four-night stay at this great hotel, and we had a wonderful time here. The building itself is simply beautiful: an old architectural gem (on a national historic registry, I believe) with some modern additions that compliment rather than clash with the decor. Our "room" was in fact more like an apartment: two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living room. The beds are extremely comfortable, and service has been exceptional at all levels. We haven't eaten at Livingston's restaurant, right off the lobby, but we did pick up some croissants at Cafe Mims, also right off the lobby, and while they fell short of the kind you would get in France, they were still pretty tasty  (but fairly expensive at $2.75 each). The hotel's location (about a mile up Peachtree from the downtown) can be a negative for people who don't like to take a 25-minute walk (or take a convenient subway ride) to get to some of the major attractions, but is also a positive in that it is within easy walking distance of two top-notch and reasonably priced restaurants, Mary Mac's and Papi's, both of which I have separately reviewed. The kitchen, unfortunately, does not come with plates or cutlery, and there is a substantial charge (somewhere around 25 bucks) if you want to order a full set of those, though given the unfailing courtesy of the staff I'm sure I could probably get one or two plates for no charge. There is also a fairly stiff parking fee (also about 25 dollars a day) but as we were without a car on this trip, that was not an issue. The rooms have free wifi for your laptops, and there are also a couple of computers with free internet access in the business center. All told, if you don't mind not being right on top of places like the Georgia Aquarium, Underground Atlanta (overrated, in my opinion) and the Coca-Cola museum, this is a place you should definitely look into. I will unhesitatingly stay here on future trips to Atlanta.

Talk about fabulous.  . .this place is it!  The building itself is absolutely phenomenal and they've done a great job keeping the old beautiful while incorporating new things.  Our room was more spacious than I've ever seen in a hotel and the beds were perfect.  The staff is amazing and not at all pretentious. . .We will be back!!

The service is horrible and the people are rude.  Usually I can at least find one positive thing to say in a review.  In this case, I've got nothing, nada, NOPE!  Walk a couple blocks there are certainly better more affordable hotels - that certainly know the meaning of the word .... SERVICE.

I used to stay at the Georgian Terrace quite a bit when I used to travel to Atlanta for work.  The building that I was going to was just across the street (NationsBank Tower).  The Fox theater is across the street.

I first stayed there at the suggestion of one of my co-workers (he also recommended the Hyatt Rickey's in Palo Alto, CA).  The hotel definitely has some positive elements.  The rooms are large and many of them are suites with full kitchens (the hotel did time as an apartment building in the past).  There is a pool on the roof and the workout room is good.

The major downside is that there are not a lot of dining options within walking distance.  The area can be dead in the evening and I often found myself going to other parts of town.  The North Street MARTA station is a short walk so it is not necessary to rent a car (I almost never rented a car when I traveled to Atlanta).

Eventually I decided to stay at other Hotels in either Buckhead or downtown since I found that was where I was ending up in the evening.

I have not been back in a couple of years so my memories are probably a little dated.

Beautiful old (1820s) hotel in downtown Atlanta right across from the Fox Theatre. Huge suites with lots of amenities, including a washer/dryer, full kitchen and living room/bedroom with a very comfortable bed. If you can get a rate of less than 175/night, I'd recommend it.

A couple tips:
- Using valet parking. The attached parking garage is not associated with the hotel, so you pay the hourly rate. With valet, you can do unlimited in/out for $25 a day, which makes it easier.

- The gym leaves a little to be desired. It's a got a beautiful view on the Penthouse level, but a number of the machines weren't working, which makes it cramped. Get there early and be willing to use different machines.

The Georgian Terrace is fantastic. We reserved th cheapest room though upon arrival they said our room "may be too small for two people." I have a feeling the room was plenty big. For no cost, they upgraded us to a one bedroom suite. Jesus, the room was bigger then our apartment back in San Francisco. It had one bedroom, one office, a living, a kitchen and a wsher/driver. Wild.

The hotel itself, while not packed, was very nice. It seemed to have a lot of history. Well ok, I'm tired now...

I have joined Yelp.com specifically in order to review the Georgian Terrace. My company is staying here for a few months, it is more corporate housing than a hotel. Where do I start?! 1) The maids at different times have knocked, called, and have even attempted to ENTER THE ROOM, all while I had the Do Not Disturb sign out. That's Housekeeping 101, right? 2) They promise high-speed internet. Since the whole hotel use the same router, the speed of the internet is WORSE than dial-up. Unbelievable they haven't upgraded this. 3) The cabinets and appliances are old and worn, the refrigerator door is unbearably squeaky. 4) Most important, on February 13, 2009, a woman in our company was sexually assaulted on the 9th floor, just in front of the elevators. Since only one elevator was in service at the time due to construction (see point 5), it took security an excruciating extra few minutes to get to her. In fact, other guests wound up seeing what was going on, and broke up the scene. Luckily the perp was caught. 5) Construction currently being held is unbearable. They told our company it would take a week or two to complete, and it is now turning out to be several months, well after we leave, to complete. 6) Midtown Atlanta is probably one of the worse areas to be in. There are hustlers on nearly every corner of the area, and prostitutes openly walk around within a one-block radius. 7) Rude, unhelpful service at the front desk. My wife has overheard them swear to each other while guests were in earshot. This is a beautiful, historic looking building from the outside and from pictures. But I will go to my grave steering everyone I know away from this dump.

UPDATE: After the assault incident, the hotel notified us that they were immediately going to beef up security, and anyone going to the elevators to the rooms had to present their room key card to the security personnel on duty. To test this, several people in our group flashed other cards in their wallet, NOT THEIR ROOM KEY CARD, credit card, Starbucks card, drivers licenses, etc. and every ridiculously inept security guard let them through without a blink. These people do not have their act together.

When I was moving out, I used a luggage cart to load my stuff and was going to the elevator in the back of the hotel and then the garage. The security guard on duty stopped me and asked where I was going. I told him the route I was taking to the garage, and he told me there was no way to get there, since there were only stairs. I told him, no, there was an elevator next to the stairs. He looked at me inquisitively, turned to a nearby bellhop and asked, "There's an elevator over there?!" Then he turned to me and said, "You can try, I guess." I don't think I'm being too picky when I feel that a security guard should know the layout of the entire building he's guarding. Don't stay here.

This hotel is extremely convenient if you're attending an event at the Fox Theatre or Georgia Tech.  It's also an easy walk to restaurants, bars, convenience stores, etc.  The doormen and registration staff are extremely friendly and welcoming.

The rooms are quite large and well-appointed, but they also show their age.  The blinds in my room were twisted and didn't work properly; the temperature was a constant 80+, and adjusting the thermostat made no difference; the windows opened about three inches but wouldn't stay up by themselves.

The food in the restaurant was abundant (breakfast buffet) and adequate, but it was nearly empty (9 a.m. on Saturday), and while the staff was attentive, they clustered nearby and discussed their own plans for Saturday night.

Two other drawbacks:  The TVs in the room are way out of date--small, 17-inch ones with remotes that don't work and a limited cable selection; and no newspapers are provided outside the rooms on weekdays.

All in all, it's a convenient and friendly hotel.  Amenities just don't quite live up to its look and feel.

it's a historic hotel with a beautiful lobby. i'll admit it - wanted to stay here because it hosted the premier of gone with the wind. it's a little out of the way -certainly not walking distance to much but i was here for a conference and there were constant shuttles.

my main issue is that they overbooked a ton of people the weekend i came and offered vouchers for red roof motel - are you kidding me?? it's even more out of the way and it's definitely not the same tier as this hotel - granted, all the hotels were booked for the conference and perhaps red roof was the closest thing available to accommodate all these people but i thought it was ridiculous and they were not even all that apologetic. i actually ended up staying there with a friend who checked in earlier and was able to get a room. the rooms are a bit old and the furniture frayed, but  guess that's a risk you take staying a "historic" hotel.

i felt really bad for a couple who just got married and were still in their wedding gown and tux and were told there were no rooms available. it's THEIR WEDDING NIGHT! how can you give their room away?? i don't know what happened to them but i hope they were able to work it out

This is an absolutely beautiful hotel! The rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated. The restaurants on site offer good venues to sit and chat, have a drink, or enjoy a good dinner. The desk personnel are all polite, helpful, friendly, and professional. My experience in Atlanta for five days at this hotel was very pleasant with one exception. After the concierge directed my friends and me to the taxi stand out in front where a cab would be called for us, a bellman literally whistled for a cab and then knowingly (and with support and complicity from both another bellman and the bell captain) placed us in a bogus cab! (This after we specifically asked about the veracity of the "taxi" that arrived for us.) We were "taken for quite the ride" literally and figuratively! Ultimately, after speaking with a manager and getting quite a few lame excuses, we got our money refunded for the cab ride, but the hotel never followed through on their statements that the general manager would be in contact with us to discuss the matter since they "took it so seriously." Bottom line, stay at the hotel and really enjoy it, but be extra vigilant when it comes to having them hail a taxi for you.

It was, just...OK.  My recommendation is that they renovate their rooms.  Ours was out-dated and a bit dingy.  Other than that, the building is beautiful and worth a visit.  I'm not sure how long it's been around, but it seems like an Atlanta landmark especially since it's across from the Fox Theatre.  

The concierge was very accommodating seeing as we needed to stay the night in downtown at the last minute.  They knocked like $100 bucks off our room since it was late and they knew they wouldn't get full price for it at that particular hour.

My finale brunch during my visit to Atlanta was at The Georgian Terrace.  It is right across from the famous Fox Theatre.  The atmosphere is very dignified.  The brunch was good, but I would not say it was amazing.  If you like the posh feeling, or a good place to eat in the shade, this is a nice place to splurge.

Well at least the room isn't yellow like the room I just stayed in during my Portland trip! Yellow will drive you crazy, trust me on this one.

This hotel is pretty cool and the room is kinda growing on me. For starters it's huge, both hotel and my room. Long hallways, a washer and dryer in the room, a TV remote with only 2 buttons that work, a HUGE bed that all 5'11 and 3/4's of me can lie diagonally in and still not hang off the bed, a cool view of red, orange and green Fall trees, a friendly crew at the front desk, a team of valets who probably waited til I was out of earshot to laugh at me when i tripped due to a high heel incident on my way in, a kitchenette, a nice big closet, but surprisingly, no wireless internet?

This seems really odd to me. I mean, the room has complimentary internet thanks to a cable I found in the closet, but no wifi? Seems weird seeing as how a lot of business travelers stay here and it's limiting because only one person can be online at a time. And so they lose a star for that. But with the exception of that, the not so appealing bathroom wallpaper and really shallow tub, the ugly comforter and mismatched chair upholstery, and really "interestingly boring" wall art, this hotel serves its purpose and I would stay here again.

Beautiful old hotel.  I had a smallish room, but I couldn't sleep because of the mirror that faces the bed.  It made me scarred.  Every time I tossed and turned I thought someone was looking at me.

Stayed here for business. The room was cozy and had a separate sitting room (petite standard). The view was great and so was the food. I sat on the bar patio every night to read and it was very relaxing. Beware the hobos on Peachtree St who will ask for money or smokes every 10 minutes so sit on the Ponce de Leon side. It's not in a bad area -  I think hobos are everywhere now. All the shops you need (unless you need an entire mall) were within 1/2 mile. Plenty of food options too (Mary Mac's is pure greasy goodness). Staff was always friendly and room service was fast. Wi-Fi was free so I'm not going to complain about it. But the windows were pretty terrible. I kept checking them to see if one was open or cracked. I could hear everything going on above and below the 14th floor. If you are thinking it's because the hotel is 100 years old...nah. My section was only 20 years old and I'm pretty confident they made quality windows even way back then.

But nothing is perfect and I would stay here even if I had to pay for it myself.

I planned a staycation for my husband's birthday, and we stayed at The Georgia Terrace. We had a great experience. The hotel common areas are beautiful - full of classic Southern charm. We were upgraded to at no additional charge to a one bedroom suite which was nice. Our room was spacious and comfortable. It was nice to have a fridge to keep our birthday bubbly and other drinks cool. We used the rooftop salt water pool for a little while, but a storm came up and kind of put a damper on this plan. The rooftop pool is really cool with great views of the city. The best features about the Georgian Terrace is the location. Lots of cool bars and restaurants within walking distance or a short cab ride away. I am planning a Girl's night to see Wicked at The Fox, and we are looking forward to staying here. When you stay there, you should definitely check out The Livingston Bar and Restaurant. By far some of the most unique best cocktails I have had.

Truly a disappointment.

Money has recently been pumped into this hotel which has great potential. Unfortunately, the money has not been spent wisely and I am sure an interior decorator is getting paid entirely too much to destroy this hotel.

The charming rocking chairs which once graced the front patio overlooking the also historic Fox Theatre have been removed.... replaced instead with modern trendy lounges covered in a material which resembles seaweed.

When you enter the lobby, you are not greeted by the classy furniture you would expect from such a landmark. There is a plaque which explains the historical significance of the hotel. Yet, ironically, the historical plaque overlooks a lobby decorated with hideous modern furniture. A rug with a circular pattern that is more befitting a dorm room. A circular couch which belongs in a night club. Coffee tables that look more like futuristic birdcages.

I have been told that the rug, circular couch, and futuristic tables represent a lily pond. Apparently, there is a "natural" theme throughout the hotel. I guess I just don't get "art" because I don't see a lily pond. It exudes "cheap."  

The guest rooms have great potential because they are large and will be remodeled soon. Unfortunately, the decor of the common areas suggests that the guest rooms will be hideous as well.

Downtown Atlanta has an endless supply of modern and trendy hotels. The owners of The Georgian Hotel are not taking advantage of the hotel's obvious niche. Forget the modern decor and stick to what is appropriate for such a dignified building. Bring back classy.

The Georgian Terrace gets three stars for hotel quality, plus one more for the amazing staff.

I was traveling to Atlanta with three friends for a conference and got us this reservation through Priceline (my first bid ever!). So... you know how Priceline has a bunch of small print about how bids only guarantee accommodations for two adults? Yeah, they're not kidding about that. As such, when I checked into the hotel at 8:30 pm...

"We've upgraded you from a standard room to a one-room suite."
"Oh. Um, that's great. Does it have two beds?"
"No. But it has a queen size bed. And a couch!"
"...but I'm staying with three other people. You really don't have any rooms with two double beds?"
"Well we do. But they're all booked. Anyway, we've already upgraded you to a suite. It has a couch!"
"Is it a pull-out couch?"
"No. Yes... maybe? You can go check if you want."

Even in my jet-lagged state, I could tell that the couch definitely did not pull out. The following conversation ensued upon my return to the registration desk:

"Does it pull out?"
"No."
"Oh."
"Um... you really don't have any rooms open with two beds?"
"No. I mean, we don't have any rooms. We do have two-room suites that have two beds... but you'd have to pay an upgrade fee."

As it turns out, all of the two-room suites were full. So what did they do? That's right, friends: for the same price, they upgraded us to a three-bedroom suite. And by suite, I clearly mean apartment: 1800 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen with both fridge and dishwasher, 4 TVs, and more couches than I can count on one hand. Oh, and there was a laundry room. My house in Boston doesn't even have a laundry room -- it has a laundry hallway. Seriously. Our suite was so much nicer than any apartment I'll be renting within the next two decades.

The best part? This room -- excuse me, suite -- normally goes for $350+. We ended up paying less than a third of that price... and that's including the upgrade fee and miscellaneous taxes.

HOTEL WIN.

The good:
* Historic and gorgeous blending of the old and the new architecture
* Friendly staff
* 1.5 blocks from the MARTA station
* Great deals possibly by booking through Priceline ($109 per night compared to a low of $225/night if booked through the hotel's website)
* Every room is a suite with kitchen. Mine also had two flatscreen tvs, a full-sized washer and dryer, and a comfortable bed.
* Trial sized shampoo/conditioner/lotion are put out daily (I love coming home with a bunch of travel-sized samples!)
* Business center is available 24-hours a day and the computers are free to use and include free printing
* With the windows closed, my room was quiet despite overlooking a busy street.
* Staff does not go through personal belongings when freshening up the room

The bad:
* Not a lot of cheap food alternatives nearby
* Room service is way more pricey than usual
* "Hot" water is really not a reality, so my bathwater was tepid at best
* Closest Starbucks is 4 LONG blocks away
* TV channel guide is totally incorrect - many channels weren't available at all, and those that were often were not on the channel that the guide indicated

The Ugly:
* The 1.5 blocks to the MARTA involves running a gauntlet of homeless aggressively asking for handouts, making the walk pre-dawn or after-dark very uncomfortable if you're walking alone

What I'll know for next time I'm in Atlanta if I stay there again:
* A cab from the hotel where the team stays to this hotel costs $10 - which is a good deal after dark if unaccompanied
* I should stop at a supermarket before heading for the hotel so I can stock munchies and breakfast items in the fridge.
* There is a Chinese/Mexican place nearby that delivers (found this out from a flyer placed under my door on the last night I was there - after I got back from dinner!)

Thank you Georgian Terrace, you made my stay in Atlanta almost as good as it could be.

I am thankful that they agreed to change my room after I slept the first night in what must have been a smoker room for decades and still stunk from stale tobacco. It was just unbearable.
I also appreciated that they decided to put me in a larger room even if I did not really need it.

It was more like an apartment than a room, with kitchen, laundry room, a living room and a nook. Great flat screen TVs (Maybe time to get HD signal set up though?)
Very nice gym as well, clean and with all the equipment working (better than my gym for sure).

The decent rate made sure that I would choose Georgian Terrace again at my next visit.

Lipstick on a pig! First impression would lead you to believe your in a top notch hotel, but don't be fooled. As the days wear down, so does the lustre.
The staff is polite, but not affective.
After numerous attempts, phones that didn't work, attempted to be fixed and still don't work.
The free internet is weak at best (ended up buying a wireless card).
Room service arrived excessively late more than once.
My vodka had been replaced with water, which I found out because I tried to make a drink and it was frozen. And the bar was closed. What the F!
And what is that smell? The hotel I think...

The location is good and easy to locate on the first try from I-75/85. The staff were friendly and seemed glad to be at work. The decor is a nice break from the chains and my 18th floor view west was a plus.

I'd stay here again and remember this as a nice place to bring my family, especially if we're going to the Fox Theatre.

I would recommend this hotel, but with some reservations.

First off, nothing is close in Atlanta, so its not like you are going to find a hotel with better food options close by.  There is a late night diner close and some other food options just a little further away.

My second gripe with the hotel is that there are no blackout curtains.  Mini-blinds are your only shield from the bright sun, which is a bummer because they have late check outs -- 12pm extended to 1pm.

The renovations in the common areas of the were beautifully done, with interesting antique touches.  I loved the Gone with the Wind connection.  The rooms are large and give great value for the price.

The hotel met our every need:
- spacious, clean room
- nice workout facility
- friendly, efficient staff
We were in town for a concert at the Fox Theater, right across the street. Having never spent time in midtown Atlanta, the concierge made our trip!  He spent time talking through our interests and making spot-on recommendations for recreation and dining.
We could have spent twice as much, or more, and stayed at the RitzCarlton, but I don't think we would have been any more pleased than we were with the Georgian Terrace.

I stayed here in a pinch after a friend's house didn't work out.

As others have noted this is a historic hotel, the oldest in Atlanta, that housed the actors from the Gone with the Wind premier.

I thought the hotel was just lovely.

When we checked in we were upgraded to a suite which was more like a small apartment. LR/DR, full kitch (but not pots, pans or dishes), bedroom, hall and bath. Two flat screens and it appeared they had HD tv.
Bed was comfy with lots of pillows.

Fitness center and pool were on the top level overlooking the city - pretty spectacular. Brownie points to the hotel for a conscious effort to go green including ecofriendly soaps, and a chlorine free pool.

Seems to house many international travelers and weddings and their entourage.

Atlanta seems pretty sprawling to me. This hotel was near the MARTA transit, famous Varsity drive in and directly across the street from the Fox Theatre.

I woul def recommend it when staying in Atlanta.

Hotel is just okay.  Nice lobby and restaurants, but, the rooms are very outdated with many fixes needed.  Torn carpet, broken blinds, stains, etc.  Service is also horrible.  Unfriendly staff, major attitudes, the works.  Although I wanted to try the restaurant, the hotel staff was so rude that I refused to give them any more business than what I was already committed to.  Would not stay again.

I really wanted to fall head over heels in love with this place, but things kept piling up.

The rooms were very expansive, with kitchens and washer dryers.  I was very excited to be able to cook a meal on the road, but then I found out that one has to RENT the cookware for $25.  So I did.

What came up to me could have been BOUGHT for $25.  I had to call and request extra things.  They also didn't provide a kitchen knife, so I had to dangerously cut things using a butter knife.  

Also, the front desk was not communicative with the concierge.  We were told that the concierge was "closed" at 6 PM and we couldn't be picked up.  When we called a cab and came back, there the concierge was, at his stand in the lobby.

The concierge was FANTASTIC when we did have a question, however, we just couldn't get a hold of him via the front desk.

Also, my blanket was mangled when I pulled it back to go to sleep.  I was too tired to say anything and wait for a new one, so I used an extra blanket they had stored in the closet.

This is a fair hotel in a great location.  The young lady at the front desk was very nice and competent.  She let me know the two packages I had shipped in advance arrived on time.  When only one was delivered, I had to go looking for the other.   It was only due to the diligence of one young bellman that it was found.  The head guy and his crew basically told me there was nothing they could do. They did a lot of shoulder shrugging and standing around.  These were the same door Pros that STOOD in the way of the doors whenever I went in/out.  The young guy needs to be put in charge.   Room wise, things were OK.  They actually gave me a 2BR set-up with a kitchen and sitting room.   The electricity in the master BR didn't work.   That is not a good thing.  But, we managed.    Also, has the 2nd elevator ever worked?   With a some attention to detail and some needed staff adjustments the GT can easily rate higher.

We stayed here Thursday - Sunday for my brother's wedding last weekend. The reception was at the Fox Theater so it was convenient! I love the location and the history of the Georgian Terrace, and our two bedroom suite (with full kitchen!) was very comfy. I've been to Atlanta many many times over the years but this was my first time staying at the Georgian Terrace.

Make sure you self park; the valet is slow as molasses, plus there's not much room in the driveway and no room on Peachtree Street out front. We arrived on Thursday afternoon around 4 pm (check in starts at  3 pm) to find only one person working the valet and one person inside at reception and a line of 10 people waiting to be helped. A second person showed up not long after. There are only two elevators for a 19 story building with 20 some-odd rooms on each floor and you can only cram 8 people in each elevator. This adds up to long wait times, especially between 11 am and noon (check out time). There was no stairwell that I found that you could walk up all the way from the lobby; there's a stairwell right by the elevators, but it only opens out and the fancy marble staircases only connected two floors. With elevators this slow, you need to have a stair option. Several people in our group complained about room service: it's only available in the mornings for breakfast, then again after 5 pm for dinner time (we were trying to send food to the bride's suite around 2 pm).

I've stayed at the Hotel Indigo right next door many times and will stay there again, if our travels call for a stay in Midtown Atlanta. The Georgian Terrace is not worth it. Visit the lobby, visit Livingston's for a drink or grab a cup of coffee at Mim's but stay elsewhere.

We were very happy with this hotel.  The room was HUGE and included a full kitchen and washer/dryer.  Atmosphere was good, location was PERFECT for when we went to see Neil Young at the Fox.  (woooooooo!)  And the price was really not bad, perhaps because we booked months in advance.

PS: For good nearby restaurants, check out Rare, Vortex, and Ecco.

Review for One Bedroom Suite (#1006)
First of all, they have free internet in room, but the connection drops about once every couple of hours. I just rebooted my PC and decided to write a review on Yelp before the internet gets dropped again.
The good: The room is big. For this one bedroom suite it's more like a 2 bedroom suite. The 2nd bedroom has a couch with an hide-a-bed. Master bedroom also has a TV. A lot of windows in all 3 rooms, and the suite comes with a kitchen and washer & dryer.

The bad: a few things can be easily fixed/replaced to make the hotel truly charming.
~The room I'm staying at was very dusty! Maybe it was vacant for a while, or maybe it was just bad housekeeping.
~The hair dryer (the kind that's mounted on the wall) was broken, but they brought me another one after I called the housekeeping.
~The bathroom fan wasn't/isn't working but not a big deal to me.
~The luggage rack is broken but not a big deal to me.
~Several doors of the cupboards in the kitchen are lose, and they look like they're falling apart.
~TV in the living room has been losing signals of HD and local channels. Finally, I checked the back of the TV and realized that half the wires in the cable were coming out, so I just shoved the wires back in and here's the crystal clear HDTV.

Overall, I do like the room. It is a very charming hotel.
P.S. there's no desk in any room; my laptop is on my lap all the time. The Georgia Congress Center is so close to the hotel, so a lot of people who stay here are for business. A desk would be nice!

I love this hotel and have spent many evenings at The Georgian Terrace over the years. The service is top notch, the in room dining options are lovely and interesting and the dining options within the hotel are fabulous. I'm a fan of this historic hotel and also find it to be the perfect place to grab a meal or drinks prior to a show at the Fox. The only gripe I have is that parking can run as much as $25+ a night. That seems a tad high to me as a guest of the Terrace.

Overall, a beautiful and well run hotel that I have many fond memories of.

This is by far my favorite hotel in Atlanta. The rooms are great with lots of space and in mnay cases a small kitchen. The rooms have free internet access. The beds are pretty good.

The check-in desk is typically SLOW, but once you pass check-in the rest is really good.

The breakfast buffet is OK but I would recommend going to a neighborhood place rather than having the hotel breakfast. The quality / cost ratio is not great.

But the rooms and the ambience is great!

We couldn't have been happier here.  Although we live in town, we booked the room so we could get dressed before our wedding.  We paid in advance for a very nice room but they upgraded us to a penthouse suite.  Truth be told, I didn't want to come home.  Everyone was really nice to us and the hotel common areas are gorgeous.  The room was really nice and spacious.  Someone told me these hotel rooms were once condos and I can believe it.  I would have bought one if I lived here at that time.   The staff was also very accommodating and I will now recommend this hotel to my out of town guests.

Had a mixed experience.  Hotel is in a good location in Atlanta - convenient to lots.

Stayed in a two room suite, which was nice, but could have been improved upon as well. The vertical blinds in the bedrooms did not block out much of the morning light and there was lots as we were staying on one of the top floors. The bath stopper did not work so showers were the only option (probably fine for most).

The sliding glass doors to the balconies were not very secure and we found a living room window was not properly locked  - we could simply slide it open if we felt like trying a bad version of base jumping. We did lock it after some scary maneuvering, but why have an open window like that? I have not been in a hotel where there were not safeguards on upper floor windows in forever, but it led me to a curious search of Atlanta hotel codes...

Room included an older washer and dryer, which worked. Full kitchen with no utensils, dinnerware, etc. I am guessing if you asked they might provide for a long term stay.

Lovely pool area on the roof, but no locker room for guests that I found. If you want to shower (as "required") before entering the pool, not sure if you should do so in your room first or what.

Elevators can take a long time, particularly if you are on an upper floor. Parking was somewhat expensive and you have to compete for spaces with patrons of the adjacent Fox Theater. If you time your arrival wrong, you will also be competing with those same patrons just to pull into the driveway.

Staff was mixed as well.  Some more responsive and friendly than others.

Conference Review:  
While I didn't actually get a room at the Georgia Terrace, I did attend a conference here recently and have a few notes
1)  Staff and service were great.  They were both knowledgeable about the surrounding area and friendly.  They even let me park my bike in their parking garage.
2)  Some conference rooms are better than others.  Both the Grand Ballroom and Piedmont Room have excellent acoustics and the presenters in the Piedmont Room didn't even need a mic, but the Conference Room #2 in the basement was a bit of a mess.  While the powerpoints went off fine I could barely hear the presenter unless I was sitting right in front of them.  Attendees in the back of the room could hear the creak of every chair, the clang of every glass, and don't even get me started about when the AC kicked on.
3)  Location and charm.  You just can beat Midtown Atlanta for a conference.  Many wonderful restaurants within walking distance.  The charm of this 100 year old building can't be understated.  A block from to North Ave. Marta station makes it perfectly accessible for someone flying into Hartsfield-Jackson.
4)  Amenities:  Laptops hooked up to projectors were set up at podiums that included mic stands.  Coffee/Tea/Water were available outside all of the conference room.  Multimedia staff were on hand to help trouble shoot any problems that arose (and don't they always?).  The main entrance has some beautiful double sided couches to hang out on between sessions.

The weekend was completely SUCKED  BUTT CRACK so I really am trying to be fair to the hotel!  

LONG STORY SHORT....This is a pretty nice hotel. Right across the street from the Fox Theater.   We stayed in the 2 bedroom 2 bath suite and the place was awesome!  2 full baths, excess closet space and a washer and dryer.  The staff were pretty nice but this place is not without it's share of problems.  There's some queens that work the desk that like to get catty and that's one strike!  In the downtown area, parking is extermely limitied and tight on top of that.  Valet is 25 dollars a day.   That's another strike...The front desk neglected to tell us when we booked the room that is was a $75 dollar/night deposit for incidentals.  Final blow...

We could've saved our money and stayed somewhere cheaper and more centrally located.  I Won't come back here from all those reasons combined.

we stayed at the georgian terrace last saturday night for a friend's wedding.  when we arrived i was immediately impressed by the beauty of the hotel but things went south pretty quickly upon arrival.

to make a long story short, check in was slow and our reservation was "lost".  after reconciling the issue and continuing on to a wonderful wedding (by the skin of our teeth) we arrived home on sunday to find a notification that the hotel had reported us as a no show for our reservation and we were being charged for an additional room as well as a penalty fee.

the concierge also left much to be desired.  when the hubs asked him where we could get a burger and a beer close by his response was "i don't know" and made no effort to look anything up.  the vortex was just a few blocks away.

great setting, not so great service.

So far my wedding vendor list has been one big lovefest. Thanks to my new wife's Eisenhower-like ability to plan giant invasions, our wedding (with its dozens upon dozens of out-of town guests) mostly went off without a hitch.  Mostly. And here's where Debbie Downer shows her sullen face.

Georgian Terrace, why must you screw up the flow of my reviews? My space (Paris on Ponce), my caterer (Badda Bing), my photographer (weddingsbyjason) and even the place where I bought my liquor (Green's) all earned high marks. So why can't the oldest hotel in all of Atlanta score the same? Because their customer service desk is run by a couple of rhesus monkeys riddled with brain injury.  Each time..EACH TIME either my girl or I called to check on an arrangement, they acted like it was the first time they'd spoken with us. And this was AFTER we'd signed a contract for a block of suites.

"And what dates would these be for?"

"Uh, don't you have the contract in front of you?"

"Contract?"

We knew it was going to be a sour relationship when they couldn't even spell my wife's name right. Once they managed to spell my fiancée's name, they accidentally changed the number of rooms we reserved on us until my fiancée pulled her wedding planning kung fu on them. (Note to all brides: maintain good records.) Answering the phone seems to be a challenge for them as well. Finally, after all was said and done, they overbooked our set of 2 room suites. To their credit, they offered 2 separate rooms to our guests at the same agreed-upon price.

In their defense, when the wedding actually got here, our guests seemed to enjoy their stays. I never got a chance to actually see the rooms because I was off doing wedding stuff. Hell, I barely even got to see my own bedroom that week.  

My mother did complain about the construction going on Friday morning at 9am.  Then again, she was still a bit jetlagged. Oh and she's an Asian mother. (Seriously, I don't care about the mythology built around them, Jewish mothers ain't got NOTHIN' on Asian mothers. I'd pit my Asian mother against a klatch of Jewish mothers in a 3-on-1 Texas Caged Guilt-off. She'd take them down in under a minute.) Oh and my cousin also called the Georgian Terrace "underwhelming," but he's a fancy New Yorker who lives on Central Park West and they're all used to being all fancy pants and wearing shoes when they go out to eat their vittles.

So I'm going to give the Terrace, 2.5 stars that I will round down to 2. I hate to do that to such a venerable institution, but until they get their customer service straightened up, it'll have to do. But if they call me, I'm sure we can discuss this. It may just take me a while to answer the phone and when I do, I may have to transfer them, oh, 4 or 5 additional times.  What's good for the goose, y'know....

An odd detail: I washed my jeans during my hotel stay here this week. That's right-- my room came equipped with a washer and dryer. AND a full-sized fridge and dishwasher. How you gonna top that?

So the check-in/check-out process is a bit slow... however, the sweet as pecan pie staff makes it more manageable. They're every bit the consummate Southern hosts you'd expect at one of Atlanta's oldest and grandest hotels.

My room was HUGE. As big as my Chicago apartment-- somewhere around 1000 sf. That much space is really an unnecessary luxury for one traveler but still fun! And the panoramic city view from the bedroom helped coax me out of my ultra comfy bed every morning.

FREE Wi-Fi. I wished more hotels offered that amenity gratis!

The rooftop pool is awesome! I think it is really the only thing I like about the hotel. Actually the rooms are really spacious, clean, and very welcoming. Well I guess the pool isn't the only thing I like about it. The service was NOT good however. I called the front desk like 5-6 times trying to figure out if they sold alcohol bottles on Sunday. They put me on hold for 10 minutes just to come back, pick up the phone, and hang up. I tried calling again and they had NO RECOLLECTION of my request so I had to ask again and be put on hold AGAIN! while they figure it out. I got to the point where I hung up and just went on about my day.

To the staff of this hotel, get it TOGETHER!

Loved the hotel and the service. They have a bellhop by the name of Anthony who is just as the Southerners say, sweet as pie. He's been working there a total of 14 years and truly made us feel all the more welcome from the moment we walked in through the door. Our flight arrived very early so I called ahead and they were very kind to accommodate us for an early check-in. Everyone is so pleasant and full of that southern hospitality. Not only were they very accommodating but they also placed us in one of their nicer sweets with a beautiful view. of the city. The hotel was clean, white, and beautiful.The closets in our suite were to be envied. Our room had a full sized walk in closet that could have been its own bedroom plus two additional coat closets.

Only one minor complaint. We were not told that there was self park available when we checked in. It was only half way through our stay we figured out that we realized this, so we had been utilizing valet.. The parking alone was expensive in my honest opinion but I suppose it has become the standard going rate across the board, at least for California anyway.

We stayed a total of four nights an were so comfortable during our stay we didn't want to leave. We will be back here again in the future.

If I could give them 3.5 stars I would. I'd hoped to give them a 4 or 5 star but I just can't. Let me explain myself. My wife and I stayed here this past New Year's Eve. We were in town for the Cake concert at the Fox Theatre.
The positives: the hotel itself is gorgeous. our room was spacious and beautiful and what a view! The room service was (we ordered breakfast) fast and the food delicious. The roof top pool looks like it would be a great place to relax in the summer.
The negatives: it was New Year's Eve, the place was a madhouse! There were long lines to check in and the rooms weren't ready. Actually called the concierge desk to ask about the ice machine and was told they don't have them on any floor. When I spoke to house keeping later in the evening about another matter, they informed me that the ice machine was just down the hall from my room. Go figure.
I could go on about the negative stuff but I'm chalking it up to New Year's Eve. I definitely want to go back but not on the 31st. I would like to think that any other time we would have gotten outstanding service. I'm willing to spend my money here again!

I can't say enough great things about this hotel.  But I'll try.  First of all the hotel is gorgeous!  It has a historice vibe to it but they were able to modernize it as well.  I got a very reasonable price online for a luxury double bed room but when I checked in the hotel was limited in space so we got upgraded.  The room we ended up in was a two bedroom, two bathroom suite with a full kitchen with all the appliances, even a dishwasher.  There was even a washer and dryer in the room.  The suite had a den, living room, and foyer.  I don't know what they would charge for this room normally but I know it is a lot more than what I paid for it.  

The hotel's location is right in the heart of Midtown, Atlanta.  Which, from what I have seen of the city, is one of it's nicer neighborhoods.  There are a lot of restaurants and cafes in the area so finding somewhere good for dinner is not a difficult task.

My only regret is that I was only in town for one night so I was not able to enjoy my great room and the city for very long before it was time to leave.  I can't wait for my next trip to Atlanta so I can visit the Georgian Terrace again.

This hotel is definitely overrated.
The location is nice, but this is probably it.
The roomkeeping was terrible: one day they took the towel and did not give the new one. Also, they did not give tea bags sometimes. It's not that I can't live without tea, but it demonstrates the quality.

The lobby was not better: one day, when I wanted to ask, how to get a taxi, I was INTERRUPTED two times. On the third attempt they let me finish the sentence.

Finally, there are minor defects, for example, only two elevators in a high building is not enough.

Overall, I do not think that one should stay in this hotel.

The hotel itself - as in the building - is pretty cool.  I have to say that I do not really care where the premiere for a movie was held, regardless of whether it was something like Gone With the Wind or not, because chances are that things have changed many, many times since then, and if you cannot sleep in the same sheets as Vivien Leigh, what is the point?

But the way that the buildings have been melded together, including an awesome circular steel lattice in the center over the lobby?  Very cool.  You really need to check it out, from both the bottom and the top (you do need a room card to ride the elevator).

Generally the service is pretty solid - at the desk at least.  Valet service is probably the way to go if you have a car, because parking is almost non-existent in the area, and if you can find it, you may not want to use it, as there area is a bit sketchtastic (thanks for the word, Tiffany!).

There are street vendors aplenty in the area, but the problem I found is that they do not really offer anything in return for money other than the promise of not harassing you once you give them some.  One especially nice gentleman gave directions, but it seemed that it was only to more of these advisors, so I am not sure if it was a truly good deal.

As others have mentioned, the food in the immediate area is a bit lacking.  There is a restaurant off the lobby, and a coffee shop of sorts.  But they were closed more often than not (and included breakfast vouchers were difficult to redeem!), so unassociated venues were a better option - the only problem is that they were not close by any means.  You may want to use a car so you can avoid walking the streets.  Uh, you know what I mean.

I used Orbitz to book my vacation package to Atlanta and got a 1 bedroom suite at the Georgian Terrace for the weekend at a really great price.

The one real thing that stood out to me without reserve is the impeccable great service that the staff showed me from the moment I stepped in. True, I was unfamiliar with the area but they took an extra step to make me feel at home.

I find it funny that I initially was unable to get to my floor because I was so ignorant of the sign that indicated how our room cards were the passage that allowed us to press our room floors. After so many ups and downs within the elevator, I was glad I figured that out and eventually got to my floor. I think it was even funnier on Sunday night when a bunch of drunk guys literally stayed in the elevator for about an hour. How do I know this? They were pretty faded when I got off at my floor. They were in the same elevator when I decided to head up to the pool. Yeah, drunk much?

The room itself was slightly impressive because of the sheer size of it. It may seem a little old and outdated but the moment I pranced about and landed upon the bed itself, I felt home. I felt safe, comfortable, and ready to sleep - that in itself is all that I could really want.

Once again the service is amazing. The boys that work the front cared for my needs from the moment I got out of my car. Not only did they valet park my car as I got out of it, they made sure my tired self didn't need to take care of the luggage from my car trunk to the room. Sure, many would say this is common. But I was tired - nay, exhausted - and the bellboy made sure that I got all my belongings to my room without falling asleep in the elevator itself.

In summary, I love this hotel from the moment I stepped in. Sure, I was an outsider and completely out of the element but they made me feel at home.

NOTE:
There is something about drunkards and stupidity when it comes to alcohol and the abundance of it among men. I stepped out for a bit of cold air at the lobby and was greeted by the drunkest of mankind - likely from a party at the Livingston itself. I don't blame anyone as it was a Friday night but if this is something that bothers you, be warned. For while I may have gone up to my room, I still could clearly hear the voices screaming into the night about some savage party happiness that they finally witnessed in their lives. God bless their souls.

Pros: large rooms, nice view from roof of city
Cons:leaky toilet gasket (so when tank would refill it would wake me up), inconsistent house keeping (no bath mat 4 of 5 nights, sometimes 1 sometimes 2 towels, gum stuck on carpet)

Had my daughter's wedding there in December 2013. The staff could not have been nicer. Dana was amazing - handled every detail like a pro. The food was excellent and the elegance of the hotel was magical. Quote one of our bridesmaids, "I feel like I'm dancing in a movie." Our out of town guests were all thrilled with their rooms. Every nook and cranny of this elegant hotel, even the exteriors, are made for gorgeous photographs. Would choose the same venue all over again.

Beautiful hotel for the $ and nice location

Valet staff were the only employees that actually talked to us...the workers at the front desk stood around staring and wouldn't speak to you unless you spoke to them

The rooftop pool was beautiful but did need some cleaning as well as the chairs and tables on the rooftop

The rooms were recent but after staying for a week my husband and I have bedbug  bites!!!

Only one elevator was working for a 19 story hotel! Sometimes took 5 min just to get up and down!

I spent my wedding night here, my prom, and a company party - all years apart from each other - and have been presently surprised through them, especially the wedding night. :P

They upgraded during a renovation a few years back and managed to keep the most charming aspects (tile floors and exuberant antique finishes) while upgrading the rooms, paint, carpet, and elevators. I still love to stay here when the occasion arises.

One personal touch on the day after my wedding - my bridesmaid forgot to pick up my $3,500 wedding dress and thankfully the Terrace kept it for me until I called to remind her to pick it up from Costa Rica. Otherwise, she'd be dead. :)

TERRIBLE customer service and poor management.  This pretty much sums up the weekend.  We stayed here over the weekend of February 21, 2014. We checked in with another couple for one of their suites.  We paid with cash with each couple paying their share.  We laid the money on the counter in stacks of $100.00 dollars each for a total of $628.00. We asked the associate to count it in front of us as well. It was a Friday and many people were checking into the hotel. As with all hotels, you have to sign and/or initial  multiple pages upon check-in. One of the "shuffled" pages was the amount of cash that was received. I didn't read all 10 pages and 15 initial spots which is entirely my fault. I folded them and we were on our way. The room was okay, but comforter was in dire need of cleaning and rooms are dated.  The room has a kitchen, but no pots or pans.  You can request these items for an additional 25.00.  We stayed two evenings and were ready to check-out on Sunday morning. We received our check-out paperwork under the door and to our dismay it showed us owing $300.00!!!!!! I quickly pulled out my folded check-in paperwork and sure enough it was noted that we only gave her $328.00.  I did initial this along with other 9 pages. I know completely my fault.  I went down and tried to resolve this with the "manager" for that day.  She refused to look at the security footage that clearly shows the counter. Cited she didn't know how to use them and there was no staff on duty to view.  Told me the General Manager was out of town and would call me Monday. I asked for a police report before I left Atlanta because I was from out of state.  Atlanta PD came and gave me a report. I called everyday until the General Manager called me back 5 days later, only to tell me he was looking into it and he would call me the next day.  That has been 2 weeks and I have yet to get anything but Mr. John Johnson's voicemail.  They have a definite internal theft issue that he refuses to acknowledge. He refuses to even listen to what happened or attempt to even return my calls.  This is written for you to be aware that if something happens on your stay at the Georgian Terrace don't expect to be helped by management. They got me for an extra $300.00!!!!!

The Georgian Terrace is a historical hotel built in the early 1900's. It is beautiful inside and out. A great place to come Visit, but not really that great to stay in, unless your on the 18th floor.

Yes the rooms are big, the restaurants are good, the staff is great, the lady at the front desk.... Useless. Another thing you should know about Staying here, there is construction being done right beside the hotel FOR THE NEXT THREE YEARS!!!!!!
If you came here to relax and sleep in, find another hotel... If you came here on business and you have to wake up at 5am everyday, then this place is for you...
However, I came for vacation, I have woken up for the last two weeks like I was in a Vietnam War, endless Beeps from construction trucks backing up consistently.... jack hammers, constantly pounding.... And every once in awhile a Helicopter drops by to say Hi... This goes on from 6am to 5pm everyday except for the weekends...
If you stay here from Friday to Sunday... Again, this is your place.

Another thing you should know about this hotel, being that it is so visually appealing. You will encounter every kind of event known to man. When I fist walked threw the doors, a film was being made in a good majority of the hotel, the next day a photo shoot, the next day a wedding, the next day a prom, the next day a film again, the next day a bar mitzvah. The person who owns this hotel will be very proud of the person they have event planning for this hotel, put this way.... The event planner has to be making a great salary, because the event rooms are never empty. And you the patron of this hotel will encounter all these events at your inconvenience...

There is three elevators here, learn this quick, the two lobby elevators will keep you waiting for at least 15 to 20 minutes.  Use the service elevator... You'll thank me
later...
If you happen to come during an event, which you will, trust me.... Be prepared... They might ask you to wear a wrist band and all back entrances to this place will be closed off and you will have to use the front entrance. Which if you are staying at the Residency Part of this hotel, it becomes another inconvienance.

A good thing about this place is the location.
Across from the fox theater, restaurants all over the place, the high museum is close by.... Another plus is They are pet friendly, for a small fee.  

Would consider staying here again, but only if I knew they were no major events being held at the hotel & the construction was complete.

In all I said, I guess if you stay here on the weekend you should be fine.
Wishing you Luck,
Evo Love.

So I wanted to take a minute to update this review.  We still haven't heard back from anyone at The Georgian Terrace.  I have contacted their marketing partner, Preferred Hotel Group, in an effort to resolve this issue.  Here is the reply i received from Preferred (they were very nice and apologetic by the way):

Dear Mr. *******,

Thank you for your phone call and email regarding your fiancé's stay at Georgian Terrace. We have noted her comments and appreciate your bringing them to our attention. As I mentioned on the phone, Preferred Hotel Group is a marketing partner, who represents but does not own or manage the hotels in our group. To maintain brand consistency, brand standards have been developed to provide each member hotel a guideline that also serves as a management tool.  

Knowing that we randomly check compliance every year through a third party licensed quality assurance expert, the hotels are very aware of expectations and work hard to meet or exceed them, which for the most part is achieved. In this case, we are concerned that the quality and services of the hotel your fiancé and her friends recently visited have left them disappointed.

I understand that several of you have attempted to Contact the General Manager. I have forwarded your email to Mr. Johnson, General Manager at Georgian Terrace. He will address your fiancé's concerns with his management team and respond to you directly with a copy to me. Thank you for taking the time to write us and let us know of her disappointing experience at Georgian Terrace.

Sincerely,

****


**** ******

Customer Relations

Preferred Hotel Group

My next step is to contact the actual owner of the hotel to see if they can get their staff to do the right thing.

great location if you're going to an event at the Fox Theater (its right across the street). I stayed here on business for 3 weeks, so i have a pretty good feel for the place.

The good:
Full Kitchen
Washer/Dryer
Very spacioud
Starbucks (MIMS Cafe)
Rooftop pool

The bad:
Outdated decor
Kitchen had no utensils, pots, etc.
One elevator was broken
Livingston restaurant is sub-par
WIFI was useless

With all the other options in ATL, i probably wouldn't stay here again unless it was for an extended period of time and i needed the in-room laundry again

side note: Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson were filming a movie here during my stay. It was cool to see them, but not cool to have the lobby shut down for paying guests while they filmed.

I have to hand it to the staff here.  The service ethic is outstanding.  These folks will bend over backwards to make sure you have a pleasant experience, and their efforts show.  The events-staff also does a fantastic job, and I will happily stay there and inquire on their events facilities again.  

My only gripes (which pale in comparison to the outstanding service & location of The Georgian Terrace), are the down pillows in the room and the $25/night parking fee.  Swapping pillows never helps.  Once down is in a room, it's in there forever.  And $25 for parking as a hotel guest just seems a bit much.  

These are the only things that keep this rating at four-stars.  But again, this is nothing compared to the quality of service, the beauty of the building, and the proximity of The Georgian Terrace to a ton of cool stuff in the area.    As I said before, I'll happily go back.  (I'll just have to take a handful of diphenhydramine with me.)

This is the worst experience I have ever had in my life ... Please fix your elevators so  the guests will not have to ride on the service elevators with the staff hauling laundry and food and upgrade the furniture in your outdated rooms... I am dissatisfied to say the least... Also lets get some new equipment for that gym upstairs... I could burn more calories moving rocks up and down the stairs.  For what I paid I could have stayed at the Trump Plaza.... You only receive 2 stars because of the awesome location on Peach Street...

First, I really like this place and have parked or stayed here many times. HOWEVER, I had one of the worst consumer experience of my life here. I was backing into a parking space and I have a backing system that warns me if I'm getting close to objects. So I'm looking in the driver side mirror to ensure I'm staying in the lines. Next thing I know my back window is broken out by a ventilation duct. The object was not barricaded, nor was it detected by my backing system because it was too high.

The Georgia Terrace security couldn't have handled the situation better and helped vacuum out the glass.

The total damage to my car was around $3,000. I contacted the Georgian Terrace Director of Operations and copied the GM on the email. They were extremely slow to respond, took no accountability, and made no attempt to compensate me in any way for the damages. My impression was that they were scared I was going to file a lawsuit or something. After 2 months of sending emails and leaving phone messages, I was hoping to have some kind of resolution with them. Unfortunately there was little to no response. I'm not an opportunist. I would only like to be treated fair and feel as though I'm being respected and taken care of as a customer, ESPECIALLY in the hospitality industry.

Stay away from the Georgian Terrace at any cost. The management does not respect their customers.

UPDATE: After contacting the CEO of the company that owns the Georgia Terrace, they finally helped out and took care of me. It's a shame that it had to go that far because it's such a nice place.

We stayed in a two bedroom, two story suite on the penthouse level for several days. Supposedly there were celebrities staying down the hall from us, although I have no clue why they would lower themselves to this level. Maybe the royalties are drying up?

Although very clean, our suite looked like it hadn't been touched since Clinton was in office. The light fixtures were very dated and I was half expecting there to be a hand crank on the dishwasher. Several times during our visit, my attempts to take a shower were thwarted by NO HOT WATER! There were moments where the water literally just stopped and I stood there, cold and waiting like a blind date gone awry.

There were other issues, too. Why does such a huge hotel only have two elevators - the commute from the lobby to our room took longer than walking from MARTA to the front door. Why was the front desk staff always so moody - I'm really sorry that you had to show up to work today, but I still want my room key. Why is there no ice machine on the penthouse level - I would think rich people would want ice that doesn't involve waiting forever for one of your two elevators to go several floors down.

On the other hand, the valet and room service staff were excellent - total bipolar opposite from the front desk. The hotel is also directly across from the Fox Theater, so it was great seeing a show, then walking back across the street.

I would stay here again, but only if the price was drastically reduced. Next time we'll pay a little extra and stay at the higher rated hotels a little farther north.

Very disappointing stay. I booked my room on line thru Orbitz and got the worst room possible. Room is outdated and stinks. The picture online is a poor misrepresentation of what I am staying in. I complained at the desk and their response was: since you booked with a third party you don't get the remodeled rooms...again why show the updated rooms on the site, if you're going to put people in substandard rooms. On top of a crappy room I was hit with a 30/night valet fee, that was not mentioned when booking my room. Overall a very disappointing stay. I will never stay here again and I will never use Orbitz again. This is day one and I have two more to go....sucks for me

Luckily, my interactions with staff here were limited to checking in and checking out. The little time I did spend at the front desk, I didn't get warm-fuzzies from those staffing the area. Beside that, this is a very grand hotel. The room was very spacious with a kitchen and a full sized washer and dryer in the bathroom.  It's a very easy walk to use MARTA, a late night sports bar and a very friendly gay bar called Blake's.  While the hotel itself always seemed busy with guests on the go, noise never was an issue.

Nice room - not astounding, but very nice.  Very tall ceilings, 3 closets (one walk in closet plus 2 others.. Weird, but awesome).  For almost $300 a night, it's disappointing that they don't have room service on Saturday night just after midnight.  Good news though, they will deliver an incredibly disappointing array of menus to your room.

It all started this morrning at around 6. Apparently the hotel is hosting biggest loser auditions this fine Saturday morning. Never mind that the line up started under our window at the crack of dawn sounding like a fraternity party with screaming, woo-wooing, and nonstop yelling that kept us from sleeping. Calling down to the front desk I received an explanation accompanied with a why are you bothering me attitude.

Knowing that hosting the event there would be tons of street noise, why did we get put in a room just above their line??  Why did the hotel book such an event in the first place????

A word of advice to the event coordinator responsible for the mess below our window..., you should be fired. We're here in a large expensive suite for a wedding and I'm wishing we had stayed at a real hotel who would never have chosen publicity over the comfort of their guests. Guests who take off work, buy expensive tickets, fly cross country with the hopes of a lovely experience. That is what every customer who books a room at your hotel has every right to expect.

Now I'll be heading off to a wedding with circles under my eyes, grumpy, pissed and yes, TIRED.....

Additional notes: construction site next door, low water pressure, one bored, tall, unsmiling woman  and one charming helpful woman at front desk. Sweet and hard working valets who we enjoy over tipping. Tacky wedding patrons in droves (think the Housewives franchise). Lovely dining room and bar. Many vagrants and pan handlers in the perimeter. The 2 bed 2 bath is spacious with full kitchen and laundry although dated and worn out decor.

I have always admired The Georgian Terrace and over the years enjoyed the times I've been there to dine or for an event. I have not stayed there (though I did tour their lovely rooms when considering where to make arrangements for wedding guests, back in the day I was planning that stuff!) but last night had another opportunity to visit.

The Winter White Party, benefiting the American Cancer Society, had it's 5th annual gala there last night. The only negative was the $20 valet charge (!!) but since by the hour parking is $12 (!!!), it was a better deal. Other than that . . .

Y'all, this place handled a BIG crowd of white-clad, festivity-having revelers very well!! The flow of the place is great for a large event - with a large ballroom, common areas in the lobby and a side room with lots of seating, a separate bar area . . . If you can accommodate a party that involves Cirque de Soleil-like dancers and acrobats (I'm talking silk rope and trapeze bar contortionists here), dressed Santa Girls floating around, a guy with a lit "umbrella" on his head (it's hard to explain but he had different Christmas lights on his umbrella hat and a cart with replacements he hauled around), and . . . yeah, it was quite the event.

The staff was very accommodating, even the bartenders who had to work under a steady stream of foam "snow" being showered down on them. Next time I have the chance to party there, I'm in for sure!

I attended a wedding at the Georgian Terrace and the atmosphere and decor are very elegant and nice.  Beautiful chandaliers, marble floors and walls, and a lot of history make up this hotel.  The wedding setup was very nice (in one of the larger ballrooms) and we also spent time in the downstairs area for cocktails and appetizers.  It was a very nice venue (this place pumps out weddings, there was at least 1 or 2 other weddings going on the same night as the wedding I attended).  The next day I came back for brunch and while it wasn't a tasty brunch (whatsoever), the setup was very nice.  All the staff I encountered were extremely nice.  Very beautiful place for a wedding.

Great location.  Beautiful building.  That's all the good I can say.  We had a two room suite with a kitchen.  Peeling wallpaper, cracked tile in the bathroom, holes in the upholstery.  We were put up here for 5 days by a movie company (displaced by the filming of a movie).  When we called down to get glasses, etc for the kitchen, we were told to use the plastic/disposable cups.  When I pointed out that I would be living here for 5 days and didn't want to drink water out of disposable cups the whole time we were given extremely poor quality, mismatched plates, ancient chipped cups, and the cheapest flatware ever.  VERY one star.  The valet would not pull the car around when we called...and we were forced to wait 20 minutes because they brought the wrong car.  Room service food was terrible and served on scratched dishes... we ended up ordering from a nearby restaurant and had it delivered.  5 days, 4 people...and they never replenished the shampoo, etc.  

I would never stay here again.  I will advise all out of town guests to avoid it.  It is a disappointment.

This hotel doesn't have the typical glass facade, but there are SO MANY WINDOWS. The hotel is contemporary/modern and absolutely gorgeous. It seems like a lot of people have wedding related events at this hotel and for good reason. I was looking for the cheapest room for three adults, and they ended up giving me a suite on the 17th floor. I had some issues getting into my room. The doors seem to sag on the hinges so you have to lift and push the door in order for it to open. I ended up calling the front desk and they sent this tiny little women that opened the door quite easily.

The rooms are extremely spacious and include a kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom, and living room. Unfortunately, the kitchen (dish washer, stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator) doesn't include anything (all the cabinets are empty). So I don't know you'd,make use of the kitchen besides maybe keeping food in the fridge. There were also some loud rumbling noises coming out of a locked closet. However, the room does have one tv in every bedroom as well as the living room. I was thoroughly surprised that they also had HD signal! And I ended exploring the room more thoroughly and found a full sized washer and dryer within the walk-in closet.

Parking was $25 a night, so we ended up parking across the street and saving $20.

I booked the Georgian Terrace for a week for a business conference. I was first assigned to a suite that looked and smelled ancient. The toilet ran all night. The heat could not be adjusted. It was very uncomfortable. I explained the issues to the front desk the next morning, and told them the suite looked nothing like what was represented in the pictures online when I booked. They moved me to another suite that still looked and smelled very old, explaining there were no renovated suites lower than the 17th floor. When I met up with my colleagues also staying there, not only had they been upgraded to a renovated suite, they'd been given the choice of several empty renovated suites on floors lower than the 17th. Although I was upset to the blatant lie I'd been told, I didn't want to make a big deal about it...but then my key was deactivated and could not be reactivated until their system came back up. At that point, I told the staff of my overall disappointment in the bald-faced lie. They apologized and covered my parking for the duration of the stay in lieu of moving my room AGAIN for only one night. While I appreciate the gesture, it did little to quell my overall disappointment with the hotel and my stay. To make matters worse, I thought my kitchen didn't have any utensils, glasses or plates until, on the last day, I opened my dishwasher to find it full of dirty dishes. Shame on you, Georgian Terrace. Such a beautiful, historic hotel with horrible management practices and customer service.

This hotel has become one of my all time favorites.  The rooms a HUGE.  I had a 2 bedroom suite with a kitchen, living room and dining room.  It even had a washer and dryer.  The roof view is spectacular and the huge pool is on the roof.  

The Staff of this hotel were awesome as well and bend over backwards to make your stay awesome.

I will definitely stay there next time I'm back in Atlanta.  It is only a block from the Marta, so getting anywhere in Atlanta is easy as well.

PLEASE BE FOREWARNED!

If you find yourself checking into this hotel as I did on a return trip from Las Vegas and have cash on you it is likely that your room will be robbed by housekeeping.
Long story short I returned from Las Vegas and stayed here with roughly $3700 in cash left on me. I left the money in an envelope in my suite case just before going to eat dinner at Slice in downtown Atlanta. I removed a $100 bill from the envelope prior to leaving to cover taxi and dinner. I returned back to the hotel and went directly to bed. When I awoke in the morning to check out the envelope was completely missing (no, I didn't have any guests with me)
I approached management in regards to this. They could really care less, i asked for an investigation into what happened and who entered my room as I was out at dinner. As convenient as it is to the hotel the security system was out and they had no telling of which hotel key was used to enter the room. Ivy was the manager I dealt with initially and she did seem concerned. I had a meeting with he GM and he could care less and told me essentially I was out of luck.
This hotel at the end of the day did nothing to help me out and wrote everything off. They do not offer safes in the rooms. There is one available at the front desk but they do not disclose of it when you check in. I was told of it after I was ROBBED.

Don't stay here. plenty of other places at the same if not better rate. I hate writing this review but it is necessary. i really did love this hotel, but $3700 gone without any management help is crazy.

Beware this hotel as it is not secure. Like Rambo K.'s review on 6/30, our room was robbed here with no help from security or the police. The intruder entered our suite while we were asleep in the bedroom and took our cash, credit cards and electronics. We filed a police report, but the hotel failed to take responsibility for the theft. In addition, the hotel security person was confused as to the number and placement of security cameras and whether the doors fully engage the locks when closed. Stay here at your own peril.

Reception staff were polite, but that was about the only positive aspect of my stay. The bartenders at the hotel bar weren't the friendliest, and the restaurant had horrible service.

The room I stayed in was fairly outdated and in need of remodeling. Just an overall blah experience.

Staff told my friend and I we could check out early and get a refund on on our last of a 4 night stay.

When we checked out they staff would not refund our last night.

I will never stay here again. So shady!

we've stayed here many times, usually over christmas and generally enjoy our stay, nice bar, great staff (valet is a little iffy), clean rooms, and good location.  However this year the housekeeping unfortunately stole some presents including a check and DEPOSITED IT.  Bummer.  I'm sure about now that person is regretting it and their date with the law...after probably 6 xmas together, we probably won't be back.

I am researching venues for my upcoming wedding and getting a straight answer from the sales staff here is like pulling teeth.  I asked VERY specific questions about a date and any off-season specials they might be running.  I knew that they existed because a friend of mine had booked one right before I contacted them.  When I finally called (because the initial email I received did not answer my questions - it appeared to be auto generated), the director (Walt) was extremely friendly and helpful. I was even given specific dates in January and February that were open where a special might apply.  However,  when they followed up via email only a few hours later (and when I referenced our earlier conversation), everything that we had discussed was conveniently forgotten.  Typical sales tricks.

I don't mind paying a good price for quality and would have considered booking even without a special because they were one of my "dream" venues.  However, based on our interactions, I will be taking my 200 person party elsewhere.  You should never have to try so hard to give someone your money.  Thanks for helping me narrow it down.

Nice place! Located just across the street from the Fox theater and Churchill Grounds  (Great Live Jazz).  I attended a dinner in the penthouse suite area.  The rooms and entertainment area were very roomy, the kitchen was large and bright, and the furniture was clean.  I would definitely consider hosting my next event here.

I would never pay to stay here but corporate pays when I visit so it's ok. Many of the electrical outlets in the room did not function, this made charging my electronic devices a challenge but somehow I managed, it was not easy.

The gym got the job done, the rooftop pool had some great views of the city but I wouldn't dare swim in it, the water was cloudy.

The neighborhood is somewhat seedy with aggressive panhandlers by day and various miscreants and prostitutes lurking at night very close to the hotel.

My favorite feature of this hotel would be the Livingston restaurant and bar. The food is above average and the bar staff are very cool people. There is a coffee shop that serves starbucks in the mornings which is also a plus.

THIS HOTEL STAFF IS AMAZING. I have been working in midtown Atlanta for about a month now and have stayed here for most of my stay. The rooms are very minimal, and you don't get the super fancy upgrades (like all marble showers, etc.) that you would at some hotels-- and I'm not saying this hotel is shabby, because it is not--but the staff here is what has made staying here so enjoyable. I have had numerous occasions where most hotels in Atlanta are booked and the staff here has had me booked and ready to go in less than 15 minutes, all while being completely happy and personable while doing so.  

I will absolutely stay here anytime I am in Atlanta and recommend you doing so as well!! Also-- the beds here are to die for!!

I have stayed here in the past through the company that I worked for at the time. I always had a  suite and would say all my stays were 4/5 ratings.  

This weekend the stay was on me. I got a low low rate on a discount site for a single room. I wanted to stay in this area with my decision between Georgian Terrace and Indigo.

My room faced the front of the hotel above the entrance and across from the Fox Theater. The first night the noise kept me awake  and the air conditioning was so quiet there wasn't enough noise to drown out the outside noise. The next day I called - requesting a change of location. The polite front desk said she would check with the manager. I received a call later that I could only move with an upgrade charge my frustration was I was not even allowed to explain why I wanted to move just that the only option was to upgrade at a charge. I asked if the hotel is fully booked and was told know that the same room would  be on a different floor.That only an upgrade would be made available. The hotel is nice and the staff is generally nice but the manager left a bad taste and I don't think I'll be staying here again on my own dime. Next visit I stay at the Indigo hotel.

AVOID, NOT WORTH THE MONEY. Gave this place 4 chances over 4 months and every room I got from the very basic to the 2 bedroom, 1000 sqf suite with full kitchen was dated, falling apart and just plain old.

Kitchen appliances were from the 80's as well as the linoleum floor complete with scuff marks and gouges in it.

Bathroom was poorly lit and the vent fans made the loudest most annoying noise when turned on and unfortunately if you wanted to see what you were doing (you know like shaving or brushing your teeth or something) you had to turn it on to get the light you needed.  

Bedrooms had a depressing view of blighted Atlanta with dilapidated buildings.  Wallpaper I'm sure my mom wound have hung from 1986. Carpet was dreadfully dingy and worn out past it's prime. Tv's while new, most of the channels were unwatchable from the interference and snow  on screen. Think tv from back in the day with rabbit ear antennas you has to adjust to get a clear picture.

I complained about the falling apart time portal I was staying in after the second time and just got some "blah blah blah we are renovating" answer from someone who couldn't take the time to look up from their phone or computer screen (I couldn't tell which).  Yeah right. After 4 months nothing has changed and from other reviews looks like nothing will. With this place, you don't get what you pay for.

I have mixed feelings about this place. It's old and in need of some TLC, that's for sure. This was a work trip and I booked whatever room the corporate travel site had available. I ended up in a 2-bedroom unit with a full kitchen, one bathroom with a combo tub/shower, a small bedroom with no closet and a 'master' bedroom with a giant walk-in closet that also contained a washer and dryer.

Beds are raised to the point where my 5'3" frame couldn't sit on the edge of the bed. I literally had to hop into bed each night. Not a fan. There were several light switches I was never able to figure out what they controlled, and I had to move the clock to the window so I could see it.

The refrigerator wouldn't stop running, so everything I put into it froze. The kitchen has no supplies (no pots/pans/cups/dishes/flatware). The thermostat had broken levers, so you couldn't really tell what the settings were. Also unfortunate is the choice of mini-blinds on all the windows with no drapes .. not even sheers .. to pull across. It's surprising how annoying the inability to control light can be.

In room literature stated that Cafe Mims (downstairs) was open until 8pm, but when I went down to grab a quick bite I found out they close at 4pm. When I asked a staffer for a recommendation for a sandwich shop, he didn't seem to understand what I was asking and referred me to the on-site restaurant. I ended up using Yelp to find a Quiznos a block away.

I also asked where the closest place was to buy some soda/snacks, and I was given really vague directions to a CVS that was (allegedly) just a few blocks away. I got about 2-blocks away when I spotted a food mart / gas station and just popped in there.

I don't love the location. I'll be honest, I'm not going to go for any evening walks as I have in Buckhead or even around the Marriott Suites on 14th. On the up-side .. self parking is a breeze.

For $119 a night, which included a one bedroom suite and breakfast for 2, you can't beat it. Nice staff.

Room has some bumps and bruises and the bathroom is small, but nothing major.

Parking is $30, but that's the case everywhere.

Nice place. Would do again, especially if I can get the same price.

The building is emaculant the white marble, stained glass, columns all give it a grand simple chic feel. The room was gigantic with a nice clean welcome. The rooftop pool is amazing. Good food choices and many surrounding area things to do.

Very worn out room.  I know they are going through renovations, but the interior is just sad.  The Livingston restaurant is good for breakfast, but had two bad experiences there for dinner and would never go back.  I'd probably stay elsewhere, given the option.

2.5 really.

So I had the task of picking a hotel for a New Year's Eve vacay where I went back and forth between the Georgian Terrace and the W Midtown. One 'iconic to the area' and one super modern. I went with the Georgian after reading lots of reviews and getting a personal recommendation on how this hotel was an Atlanta landmark, and the architecture is beautiful, and it's romantic and cozy, and blah blah blah.

Yes, the exterior and the lobby of the Georgian Terrace is lovely... but the rooms? Not so much. I have alot of beef with this room. First off, it was TINY. We stayed in a standard room and man it was small, like you basically open the door and have to turn sideways to get in or else you walk into the bed.  There's the bed, a large chair and a nightstand and with that, there's virtually no room to walk around and no space to put all your suitcases. It's tight. Besides being itty bitty, I was also disappointed in the blinds/curtain situation. There were horizontal plastic blinds and decorative - not functional- curtains, so you can close the blinds obviously they still let alot of light in, and without curtains to close, the room got nice and sunny nice and early. No fridge in the standard room, no robes, not extras. For me, it's all about the extras and the Georgian severely lacked. And then there's the bathrooms. Small. smallsmallsmallsmallsmall. Teensy vanity with almost no room to put all your stuff and the shower gel/shampoo/conditioner they give are the smallest bottles ever. They have a small hair dryer attached to the wall, a la Carnival cruise.

As far as service goes, I'm on the fence. Yes, Collin and Diane at the check-in counter were super sweet and friendly. They offered up suggestions (good thing since there is no concierge at the hotel) and were very nice and helpful the whole time, but beyond the guest services staff, the staff elsewhere failed to impress. Like the door attendants for instance who failed to open the door at least 80% of the time. And I don't want to sound snobbish like I HAVE to have my door opened for me, but... you have one job...
Oh and let's talk pillows. During check-in, we requested extra pillows as we enjoy the occasional pillow fight and pillow fort. Were extra pillows delivered to the room? nope. They only give 2 pillows on the bed, so even just for sleeping I wanted more. We called a second time requesting more pillows and again nothing. Went downstairs and asked at the desk the next morning and still nothing. It took 2 more calls, thats a total of 5 request, to have two more pillows sent up.

The plus side was that the bed was comfy and that the location was pretty good. I mean, Atlanta is not exactly walkable and if you are told that you can do Atlanta using just their public transit, don't believe it, but there are a good amount of restaurants and stuff close by. If you rent a car it's $25 a day to park onsite.

I unfortunately can't say that I would personally recommend the Georgian Terrace and if I could do it over, I would choose a modern hotel.

Well they didn't take out the trash from the previous guest before us or restock our coffee supplies but really that's not horrible. We checked in, the room is small but really nice! They got us whatever we needed very quickly and overall it was a wonderful experience for our anniversary. We will be coming back for it next year as well.

My girlfriends and I booked a suite at the Georgian Terrace for a Bachelorette celebration. After looking at a number of hotel options in Midtown, we decided Georgian Terrace by far gave us the biggest bang for our buck. We booked a two-bedroom suite. Upon checking in, we were informed that our room had actually been oversold because of the numerous weddings and parties that evening and we would be upgraded to a penthouse suite. We ended up with not only any penthouse suite, but a 2 BR, 2.5 bath, 2 story suite complete with a kitchen, dining area, living room, and separate entertaining area. This was the corner suite and from what we were told, larger than most of the other penthouse suites. Score!

The lobby is absolutely gorgeous and the hotel is located in such a convenient area--just blocks away from great restaurants and entertainment.

We were really sad to check out and leave! One thing to note, the hotel has a strict no-party policy--there are signs posted at check-in and a note online, so beware if that's what you're looking for. Overall, great price and good stay--highly recommended!

Solid two and half stars, but I'm being generous and rounding up for its location - and the main saving grace was the price we paid $77/night (travel agent discount) for a room which was originally $130/night. Had we paid the $130/night I would have really sailed into them, however I sucked it up and lived in what amounted to a two star hotel.

The hotel sucks you in with its charm and visible decor, but as the saying goes, you simply cannot polish a turd. The hotel is filled with old world charm - and it shows. Care was taken to maintain most of the original features. But where the hotel faltered was the rooms and service. The location itself is great, lots of great micro-brew bars and fox theater across the street. Hotel itself even has two excellent bars in it, which were thoroughly enjoyed on new years.

We were assured our room was "very nice" at check in by the self-proclaimed "Mom" of the hotel. Upon entering the room, we noted it being no larger then 80 square feet, including the bathroom. There was little to no room for one person to spread out, let alone 2. We had the following lovely issues with our room: Our toilet was constantly running, the thermostat did not work, the headboard kept falling off the wall (it wasn't mounted, it merely hung off a half inch plate from the wall), and the blinds would not stay up - which required I McGever the blinds cord half way across the room and tied it around a lamp. Again, the $77 made it bearable. We asked for an upgrade to the 1 bedroom apartment - cost $130/night. Their pricing is all over the place.

The service pissed me off - a lot. Those whom know me are aware I have an affinity for pillows. Both because I enjoy making pillow forts and I've had recent back issues. We asked for pillows FIVE times. In person at the front desk and over the phone. Each time we were assured they would absolutely be there in a few minutes. And each time the tone made it seem like it was a chore and they were doing us a favor. Finally, after 2.5 days I received 2 of 4 pillows originally requested. My back was pretty sore throughout our four night stay. Ironically, I asked for a cork screw and that arrived in 5 minutes?

The front desk was generally helpful otherwise - and was complete with a flamboyant concierge. Really cool dude who added brownie points for the hotel. Free wi-fi throughout the hotel. Hotel had a great view from the roof top - but the deck itself was barren and devoid of any sort of comforts. Would it hurt to throw on a few wicker outdoor sofas and maybe some heat-lamps for the winter months?

I was a bit ticked that parking was $25 per night, even though you could park overnight for outside events renting the garage for $20/night.

Another thing that baffled me was the hotel smelt like bacon every night - EVERYWHERE. I love bacon - bonus points. However, the stink is not something I want to smell in a hotel.

Will not return here if I'm ever back in Atlanta. Better deals and service to be had elsewhere.

Very surprised to see that this place does not have a higher overall rating. Stayed here for a business trip at the end of last month and it is now one of my favorite hotels! Just wish it was closer to Georgia World Congress Center, would make the location much more ideal for me.

Beautiful hotel... Very interesting looking up at the railings kind of forming a spiral. Check-in was a bit slow, but not a big deal. My suite was on the 15th floor and it was huge. Honestly a lot of wasted space for me, I could never make sure of all that room. Very comfortable bed, TV was right in front of the bed, big bathroom, huge closets, cushy living room, full refrigerator (I didn't use), and the best part... I had a separate vanity room! It was gorgeous. Not sure how many suites actually have the vanity room, because my colleague did not have it, and I don't see anyone having uploaded a picture of it... I never upload pictures to go along with my reviews, but I'll upload my pic of the vanity room, it deserves some showing off!

Love that pretty much everywhere I go, whether I'm in my bedroom, my living room, my vanity, in the hallway waiting for an elevator, or in the gym... I have an amazing city view because of the huge windows.

Great gym, has far more equipment than most I have seen. The gym is on the way to the rooftop pool, which I really enjoyed. Good amount of lounge chairs. Fabulous view of downtown, plus I caught a gorgeous sunset during my stay, so glad I was up there to see it!

One thing that does need improvement: the elevators are slow. Also, free area shuttle (within 2 miles) is provided but the concierge was mostly not available when we looked, and the front desk was weird about it when I asked about the shuttle hours during check-in. I understand that if the shuttle is already out, then it's out... But surely there's a starting and end time for its availability?

However, I would absolutely stay here again for a personal trip. Didn't expect the hotel to turn out to be so nice, as the nightly rates were very low.

I have always been a Hilton kind of girl on vacation. I saw something about the Georgian Terrace and thought, "I've always wanted to stay there just once". I have an awesome inner voice. The room was the most beautiful, secluded room I've ever seen. The dining room have beautiful works of art hanging and i could roller skate in the main bathroom! Roller skate! Down the hall stood the original marble staircases. The staff treated us like rock stars and there's an old speak easy downstairs. The weekend was magical and amazing. There is no place than I'd rather be!!

But just worn out old undersized room.
Not maintained.
Waking up to a shower head that really didn't work.

Roaches. Forgotten breakfast orders. A leaky toilet. Sandpaper towels.

After so politely being told I had a room upgrade, I had booked a small standard room and don't know the category of my upgrade, I met my roomates- the roaches. Lucky for me the gentlemen they send to deal with it was wonderful. Yet no apology or sense of embarrassment whatsoever. The room had two beds and a lot of odd open unusable space. And access to a water heater and circuit breaker that I didn't explore too much.

Night 1 I set out the morning breakfast order, long before the 2am deadline. As my order time approached and my tummy gumbled I checked to ensure they had taken my order card. Nope, still there. Doh. There went breakfast as I didn't have time for a new order or to eat in the dining room. I did however have time to call and ask for fluffier towels from housekeeping. Bummer they don't have more than old scratchy towels anywhere in the building.

Night 2 I set out the card and called the front desk to be sure someone would pick it up. Nope, still there when I woke up in the morning.

Besides for the slew of reasons to not stay here, the bed was soft and very comfortable. With the sweet water sounds of a drippy toilet in the background.
