Atlanta is a gracious city, with much charm and cosmopolitan spirit. In recent decades it has become a center of the dot com industry, with both software and hardware companies abounding. Of course there is the famous underground Peachtree Center, with extraordinary shopping variety. Whether you are going to visit Atlanta for business or pleasure, there is an abundance of hotels to suit your purpose.

Beginning with Five Star hotels, there are four listed on Expedia. They are the Ritz Carlton at Buckhead, the Mansion on Peachtree, the St. Regis, and the Four Seasons. All of these four hotels provide uncommon luxury, with swimming pools, bars and pubs, double suites, meeting rooms, fine restaurant facilities, and proximity to noteworthy city sites. The Mansion allows small pets with a charge. The other hotels might also allow this, with a pet fee per stay. These luxury hotels are a natural choice when traveling for pleasure or when the desire is to impress a new romantic interest or a new business association. Five Star hotels such as the Mansion offer high definition televisions, first run movies, fine Italian bed linens, cordless room phones, designer toiletries, in room safes, iPod docking stations, and pillowtop bedding. The Mansion has a fireplace in the lobby and an indoor pool. Some of the other Five Star hotels also offer indoor pools and most of the same quality amenities as the Mansion.

There are eighteen Four Star hotels in Atlanta. Four of these are the Omni Hotel Downtown at CNN Center, the Ellis on Peachtree, the Westin Atlanta at Perimeter Center, and the Grand Hyatt Atlanta at Buckhead. The Ellis on Peachtree epitomizes a four star rated hotel, with luxury near to that of the five stars, but with a bit less room price. City views, turn down service, high speed wireless internet access, windows that actually can be opened for fresh air, are niceties that matter. The Ellis, like many of the finer hotels, offers complimentary fitness center use and high definition televisions. Services include limo service, dry cleaning, and concierge assistance. The Ellis is located just a few blocks from the CNN center and an aquarium. Shopping is within walking distance. Like some of the other fine hotels, the Ellis allows pets for a small fee per stay.

With 151 Three Star hotels listed in Atlanta, there is an over abundance of them to choose from. Four that have good prices and good customer ratings include the Georgian Terrace Hotel, the Sheraton Suites Atlanta Galleria, the Doubletree Guest Suites Galleria, and the Hilton Atlanta Airport. These hotels offer similar levels of service and accommodations. The Sheraton Suites Atlanta Galleria offers two room suites with plush bedding, down pillows, wet bars, in room microwave ovens, and wireless internet connections (for a fee). The main feature that takes importance in three star rated hotels might be the proximity to important city locations, since the amenities of these hotels are less and the surrounding area can be a source of what additional services might be needed to augment those provided by the hotel.

There are over 270 hotels in Atlanta that carry the Two Star rating. Hotels such as the Wyngate by Wyndham at Atlanta Galleria Center, the La Quinta Inn & Suites Atlanta Airport, the Country Inn & Suites at Buckhead, and the Quality Inn Atlanta Airport provide more than adequate lodging and dining facilities, with less of the bells and whistles that the higher rated hotels offer. The televisions will not necessarily be wide screen, the pools will be smaller or none at all, and the services and amenities less. However, that said, the cleanliness will be fine, there will be a wake up service, there will be computer access albeit perhaps a charge, and the hotels might be more likely to allow pets, since the concern is not as much to preserve luxury furnishings.

In the category of budget hotels, selected with no regard for star ratings, but with a focus on price per night, here are four which offer lodging for $80 or less per night: the Ramada Atlanta Airport, the Comfort Inn Downtown at Turner Field, the Hampton Inn Suites at Atlanta Galleria, and the Holiday Inn Select Dunwoody. When the purpose of your trip is not for pleasure alone, but for expediency for family and business matters, and keeping the cost down of a place to sleep is the most important concern, then a budget hotel is the right pick.
