The AC Hotel Atlanta Buckhead at Phipps Plaza features guestrooms with one king, two doubles or two queen beds and are decked in hardwood floors and modern furnishings. No elegant window treatments or frills here. Instead think platform beds with giant snow-white duvets. All rooms come with a mini-fridge and a flat-screen. Upgrade to a suite with a living room, another flat-screen, and a larger suite with two bathrooms. Communal microwaves are on levels three and five. The sleek rooms all have showers, but tubs are in a few rooms. The AC Market is a nook packed with snacks and cold meals. The AC lounge is a gorgeous bar and the AC Kitchen prepares a buffet breakfast each morning for a fee.
The upscale outdoor patio offers a sleek view of the Buckhead skyline and the whirlpool is large and wreathed in chaise lounges.
The property is one-minute walk to the beautiful Phipps Plaza (with LEGOLAND Discovery Center), 8-miles to the fabulous Fox Theatre, 8.4-miles to Centennial Olympic Park (Children’s Museum, fountains for play, CNN Center, Atlanta Ferris wheel), 6.2-miles to Piedmont Park, 1.8-miles to The Shops at Buckhead-Atlanta, 6.4-miles to the High Museum of Art, 12.3-miles to the Fernbank Science Center. (Avoid driving during peak Atlanta commute hours.)

Loud noise from neighboring rooms in hotels happen. The usual thought would be call the front desk let them manage the issue. Managment at this hotel statement to me was something to the effect of. “it’s the weekend there’s going to be loud noises even though you hear someone screaming for help in what sounds like a fight I cant do anything unless they tell us they need help.” her suggestion to me was to move my two sleeping children and all my belongings to avoid hearing the noise. Is this how a hotel is supposed to be ran AC Hotel Marriott? P.S. no concierge or bellhop is available.

This hotel is the awesome. I was greeted with a warm welcome from Kemar & he wised me a Happy Birthday: he remembered when I called to confirm my reservations; he is absolutely the best, little things like that goes a long way, it made me feel special. Everyone at the front desk are so nice & has made me feel like a queen on my birthday. I really thank them for going over & beyond to make it amazing. Beautiful hotel, very clean & quiet. Right across from Phipps Plaza & close to many resturants. This is my new go to place for a get away.
