Old property, rooms very small. friendly staff & decent restaurant on the 2nd floor. Drinks are $10 at the bar. Downtown Atlanta still has a serious problem with the large number of panhandlers. One can do better for the price.

Ms. Karishma is an excellent employee. She went out of her away to make sure we were taken care of including a refrigerator for my husband's medical needs. She went out of her way to make sure all of our needs were met in a very professional and efficient manner. She really made our stay very pleasant. Will consider the...

Downtown Atlanta is chock full of towering, fairly modern hotels. And then there are the handful of restoration gems, of which I'd consider the Ellis Hotel one. Let's first address the elephant in the room (to Atlanta natives) - you'd never know that this place was the sight of the deadliest hotel fire in N. American history (in 1946, when...

Boyfriend and I stayed one night last December for our anniversary. The Ellis was lovely -- all decked out for Christmas! -- and the holiday package included complimentary drinks at the bar and a discounted (delicious!) breakfast. Our room was meticulously clean, comfortable, and quieter than you'd expect, given that the hotel's on a busy street. The service was great,...
