Hyatt Place Perimeter Center Atlanta Hotel Review
Atlanta is a great place to go and just get away for the weekend, which was my plan a few weeks ago. My boyfriend and I wanted to get away but not go too far, so Atlanta made the cut. He always leaves it up to me to pick the hotel; all he gave me was a restaurant he wanted to go to and find something near it.
Well, I'm really picky about what hotels I stay at. If I have a choice, I will research and check out reviews before I book my room. So far it's always worked for me. When my boyfriend wanted me to find a place, I was happy to do it. If it were up to him, we'd stay at the cheapest place possible, but money is always an issue so cheap isn't bad by any means.
I started my search with Atlanta, GA, trying t o find hotels around the Perimeter Mall. Price is a concern as neither me nor my boyfriend have a money tree in the back yard, but I still want to find something that is going to be nice. Personally, if I have to pay an extra $10 for a hotel that doesn't have any complaints about a funny smell, I'm going to pay the extra $10.
I'll go ahead and tell you that for $62 a night, the Hyatt is a wonderful place to stay. For the cheaper price, I was not able to back out of my reservations, but I wasn't planning on it. I could have paid a little more to be able to back out, but I knew we were going. The $62 was for a king sized bed in a non-smoking room.
The room included a pullout sofa, so in reality, where the hotel says 2 adults, you could really keep a small family in the room or maybe 4 adults without being too cramped (the bathroom is another story altogether, but the room itself would be perfectly fine).
The lobby keeps coffee and newspapers available. You can purchase drinks, bakery items (such as the oreo cream cheese brownie that was great!), sandwiches, salads, beer, and wine.
There is a complimentary breakfast available, but there's not much to choose from. You've got your choice of Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Fruit Loops, and Raisin Brain cereals. You can choose from watermelon, cantaloupe, and honey dew for your fruits. English muffins are also available, other than that, the breakfast is limited.
The Hyatt Place in Perimeter offers a fitness facility and an outdoor pool. The fitness area includes two treadmills, an exercise bike, and an elliptical cross-trainer, so it's not that big, but it's fine for a few people to work out for a few hours.
The front desk workers are very pleasant. They're available 24 hours a day. They were very accommodating when it came to helping me find restaurants around the hotel and were actually able to provide a listing with directions. Granted, the listing wasn't the most up-to-date, but it was somewhere to start. Some of the restaurants on the listing had moved and were not actually anywhere around the hotel.
The hotel is in a great location, near the Perimeter Mall, many restaurants, and an outlet/ outdoor type mall with several stores.

The room consists of your basic accommodations that include air conditioning with climate control, blackout curtains, a clock radio, coffee maker, desk, direct-dial phone, toiletries, extra towels and bedding, TV with cable/satellite and premium channels, housekeeping, iron and ironing board, wake up calls, housekeeping, an in-room safe, hair dryer, refrigerator, microwave, shower/bath, and free local calls.
You can also get infant beds and rollaway beds, but most rooms will include a sofa bed as a part of the sitting area.
What I liked was the free internet access and the high definition plasma television.
The king sized bed was comfortable, and although the comforter and sheets were a little heavy, you did not get hot during the night. There are so many hotels that give you the shivers when you think about having to sleep on the bed, but the bed was pretty clean and the pillows were great. Now, I didn't take a light to them to see how clean they really were, but they were good enough for me, and I'm pretty weird about hotels.
The internet was a little slow at first, but a call to the front desk, who sent me to a technical support line and the internet was bumped up just fine. It still wasn't like home, but for a hotel it was great.
The one major complaint that I have about the room is that the bathroom was a little small. I'm a small person, and I found it a little cramped.
As for sounds from the hallway, I had the perfect room to tell you that the room is pretty insulated. My room was directly in front of the elevator, which I wasn't thrilled about, but for the most part, there weren't any loud sounds. I expected kids to be running around and screaming in the morning for breakfast, but I didn't hear anything. I assume it's because the bed is furthest thing from the door.
Lighting was great. No weird smells, and the floor was pretty clean; I didn't feel weird taking my shoes off and walking in my socks, and no my socks didn't end up black on the bottom.
If you're in Atlanta and want to stay around the Perimeter mall, stay at the Hyatt Place Perimeter Center! For the price, whether you're staying just a few nights in Atlanta or a week or longer, The Hyatt is a great place to stay.
