Downtown Atlanta? Big city? I was worried about selecting a hotel in a place I didn't know much about. But I found the Ellis Hotel while doing my research and I'm glad I did. It's not the cheapest hotel you can find, but it was a safe and secure haven for us. It was impeccably clean. It was perfectly centralized to everything we had to do, with plenty of good food, entertainment, and security all around. I had purchased a King Size bed that was as comfortable as any. The staff was extremely friendly and struggled to serve us in every way. But there were a couple of items that made the Ellis Hotel a tiny notch below perfect. It is a city hotel and situated on a block. I drove by it several times before figuring out how to gain access. There is no car access. You will need to find the parking deck associated with the hotel or use the valet service that is available at the main entrance (which I did). And a second item that is very small. Compared to today's newer hotels, the rooms were a bit smaller. They were beautiful, clean, and very comfortable, but a bit smaller than some of the newer hotel rooms that are being built along our highways today. But overall, the Ellis Hotel provided me and my two sons with a great stay. I'm glad I found them and will return if I find myself travelling that way again.
