The rooms are large and have a sofa (at least our king did) and from the pictures it looks like they will continue to have a sofa. There was a group of kids in the hotel and our room was across from the ice machine and next to the highway, but they must be well insulated for sound as I did not hear a thing. They have a surface lot and parking is free. There is a decent size fitness room for a property this size and a large whirlpool (which was wonderful after a long day). One thing to note: Depending on where you are headed from here, this hotel sits on the opposite side of the interstate from Midtown and can be a good walk to get to the activity. I was fine with the walk since there was two of us, but I would not have made the walk alone. A cab would be in order if you are traveling alone. There is really nothing around it except a CVS open until midnight two doors down and a Villeger lodge (appears less than 1 star) across the street.
Even after the renovation, I will probably avoid bidding on this level in Midtown. All of the 3* properties are much more near the attractions, so for a few dollars more I think it is worth it. For my next Midtown trip, I got the Marriott Suites for $7 more and it is but a few steps from Peachtree Street.
