Hello from the W Atlanta Buckhead Living Room. Nice stay so far. No, I wasn’t upgraded to some big daddy suite, but I did graduate from a “Wonderful” to a “Fabulous” room, pictures of which, I will include with the full review. The Living Room is pretty quiet on this Monday night, and I am not going to complain about that! After today at my day job, I was ready for a quiet night.
This morning’s flight from DCA to ATL on Delta was pretty uneventful other than the go-around on landing at ATL. DCA was very busy this summer Monday morning. Between the usual summer traffic, and the US Open attendees, the line for TSA was really backed up. Thankfully, as a Delta Gold Medallion, I bypassed all that mess and headed straight for the Sky Priority line. My wait was only 10 minutes or so, and I was on my second coffee in the Sky Club before people who joined the regular security line at the same time I walked in were anywhere near clearing. I hate to say it, but I seriously don’t know how anyone without elite status on some airline tolerates flying on a semi-routine basis, really, I don’t.
Once I survived the workspace, I took MARTA to the hotel, and was entertained by the fact that I was like the last in a little line of travelers from the same train making their way straight to the W. There was a small line to check in, but not for long. More details on the stay once its complete, but I think it’s going to be a good one! More to come soon.
