Check Into the Glenn Hotel

Well…since the whole Brand Atlanta post didn’t go over so well, let’s introduce a non sequitur…a hotel opening!

Chances are if you’ve been in the Downtown area near Philips Arena in the past few months, you know about the heavy construction and walk-under scaffolds at the building on the corner of Spring and Marietta. Formerly known as the Glenn Building, the property was purchased by Legacy Property Group in December of 2003 and will re-open as the Glenn Hotel in January of 2006.

Coined as a “modern luxury boutique hotel”, the Glenn will have the feature the infamous restaurant BED, and have rooms decorated with photography by Atlanta artists, plasma screen televisions and Herman Miller Aeron chairs. The hotel will be a welcome addition to the downtown area joining area neighbors Centennial Olympic Park and the Georgia Aquarium as destination for pure pleasure.

Hell, I’m tempted to rent a room just for the rest of the amenities, especially after that whole Today Show thing at the Aquarium. Ahhh….

    “Worst Restaurant Ever” BED Atlanta
    Parking is $5-15. Drinks avg $15. Food was expensive and bland. Atmosphere is dark and boring. Service was unbelievably horrible! Unfortunatly tax and tip is included. Drinks took an hour, food arrived cold. Our “medium well” steaks came rare. It took the manager to get them recooked. Even then, they arrived cold+rare an hour later! When I asked for bread for my brie, the waitress scolded “We don’t have bread!” My friend ordered a shot of vodka. $16! He gave her $21 and asked for change. “I thought that was tip.” Tip is included. She expects an extra $5? Table of 6 threw in $50 each for a bill of $270. No change was given. Waiter didn’t know the menu, didn’t know what a mojito was, didn’t deserve a tip let alone 35%! “Credit card machine doesn’t work.” so they scribble down my info. Find out later they overcharged me by $10. Complaints were denounced without apology. Nothing like Bed/Miami. Shut this place down, asap!
