Twenty to 30 years ago, a fair number of people who stayed at the Atlanta agreed with the owner's "ideological" positions on issues like sex tourism and the ecology. However, even back then, the place was very outdated and run down. The rooms didn't have TV or radio; the building didn't have an elevator and some of the rooms lacked A/C.
Today it's even worse. Twenty more years of wear and tear on facilities that are never updated or improved. There's no WiFi for the guests' use. The place has gone from quaint and eccentric to a dump. I can't imagine anyone choosing to stay at the Atlanta for any other reason than dire economic necessity.
