We reserved a block of rooms for our son's wedding in Sept 2016. Communications with the sales department prior to the wedding answered our questions and addressed any issues we had. The price they offered was quite reasonable. Upon arrival, we were greeted graciously and assured that our needs for our guests would be met. We provided welcome bags for...

Hotel was base for Grandma's 90th birthday, including hotel guests and in town family. Staff was extremely helpful in responding to needs generated by a 15 month old and a 90 year old and all stops in between. Location was great in that we could walk to cafes, bars and resturants and the Marta train to the airport.

From the interior courtyard and atypical styling to the friendly staff, this is my favorite Courtyard. Always clean and on point. There was no real change from my review 2 years ago. However, this time I tended to park on the street as the garage is difficult to maneuver with a larger car. Also, our room had an anemic shower...
