The W Hotel Atlanta - Downtown

A 20 minute ride on the MARTA GOLD (Doraville) line from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to Civic Center Station. And a brief walk one block south of the station to Ivan Allen Jr Blvd, and a right turn led me to my intended address, the W Atlanta  - Downtown

Upon my arrival, I had an experience a couple Fridays ago that could have left me jilted and even more the cynic, had it not been for the incredible, courteous and considerate front desk staff of the W Atlanta - Downtown, in particular Yvette, also a brief run in with a housekeeper, a technician, and since then with General Manager Tim Dahlen. Certainly, a life lesson in "it's how you treat the least of the apostles!" *Flashback phrase, I've heard from my mom.* As a former business major, I wish 'big' business would model the treatment I got that day. 

Apart from the wonderful customer service, the hotel is a lush hideaway infused with natural elements and sensual style. The lobby of funky art, wooden panels, floating ceiling of metal, reminiscent of untied ribbon and a side table with decanters of chilled water infused with fresh fruit for guests.

... And on the 16th floor is the luxurious BLISS spa. The halls of my hotel floor were permeated by the scent of the BLISS spa, reminding me that Yvette, the front desk staff who welcomed me, had also informed me that I could either get WET® or SWEAT® on that particular floor too. The 16th floor was playtime ... spa, gym and pool. I never made it to the Living Room and the BLT Steak and DRINKSHOP but neither went unnoticed, especially with the activity of workmen preparing for a later day event.

My room was sensually appealing, from the W etched hotel stationery by my bedside to the see through shower filled with BLISS spa toiletries and a view that allowed me to scope people sunbathing by another hotel pool, next door. ... And though my stay was brief, I must commend the W Hotel for the exceptional customer service received, in Hotlanta!

BTW, umm, dear hubby ... wanna treat me any time soon? LOL!

See the pictures ...
