Almost Awesome; Nice, not peerfect.

Pros: The location is great and the price wonderful. We ate there twice and the food was very good! Nice looking rooms and Very comfy beds.
Cons: I think they need more staff so that they can be more thorough with responding to important requests and get housekeeping done earlier!!
Location: We were able to walk to most of the attractions within 10-15 minutes. Many hotels are in this area and I like that this has a boutique-y vibe.
The facilities are very nice and the staff is well-meaning, but some things were not totally satisfactory. The AC fan didn't work well (freezing and noisy our first night), the housekeeping staff didn't get to our room till quite late our last full day, ans the wifi was iffy at times. I think they just need more staff to be more vigilant about service.

Nice, boutique hotel.

A chic downtown hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was a good size. The electrical outlet in the bathroom was broken and the coffee pot was faulty but there was free coffee in the lobby and it was very good. Overall, well worth the price.

The hotel was very clean.

Pros: Very clean
Cons: Give your guest free bottle of water
Location: Location is great.
I love everything about the hotel except the price of bottle water in the room. For the price, the hotel should give free bottle water.

Very good value

My fiancée and I stayed at the Ellis this past weekend and I'll say it was a great value. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was small but recently renovated and very comfortable. The location is good with plenty to do within walking distance. We ordered room service breakfast our last day. We expected it to be on the expensive side but not only was it expensive but we didn't get everything we ordered and the food was just down right nasty. Overall the stay was nice, and a great value. Just make sure to walk to one of the nearby restaurants!

This hotel made me feel like a Queen!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Beyond the courteous gentlemen that stand at the door, upon arrival I was greeted by two of the nicest ladies ever. Not a fake "how are you?"...these ladies transferred their amazing energy right to me and made me feel welcome. They were extremely professional, helpful and made me feel like they were happy I was spending my time with them. Anything I needed or asked for was no problem. As a photographer, I chouse hotels largely on aesthetics. I like to be surrounded by beautiful things at all times. I was ecstatic when I walked through the doors and it looked exactly how it does on the internet. The entire facility was spotless, the water was hot, my view was awesome and the bed hugged me, lol! All of the things I needed professionally were available without me looking for them and it was a small slice of loveliness as a working vacation. Security was top notch. I will stay at the Ellis Hotel on Peachtree Street from now on when I visit Atlanta, GA!
