I am a mega fan of IHG brand hotels and have been for the better part of a decade. It helps that I have achieved Platinum status with the hotel chain. Before booking our hotel in Atlanta, I carefully reviewed all my options… googled distances… and read reviews.
I selected the Crowne Plaza Midtown based on price and location. I booked even though I knew the property had a plethora of negative reviews. I assumed my fellow travelers were picky.
