Refined Buckhead retreat with a posh pool scene, relaxing spa and sexy, tucked-away bar
With grand double staircases, polished dark wood floors and vast crystal chandeliers, the St. Regis Atlanta’s lobby welcomes guests to one of the city’s poshest addresses. The walls of the hotel are adorned with $1 million worth of original oils, and the framed photographs of famous Georgians such as Margaret Mitchell, Hank Aaron and Bobby Jones might make you think you’re staying at an incredibly well-appointed private estate.
Bed & Bath
The St. Regis Atlanta’s 151 guestrooms have a neutral color palette of crisp white and soft ecru, along with pops of gold and light green. Feather pillows and duvets, original artwork, handcrafted chandeliers and French Deco-style furnishings give an air of sophistication, while tray ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows open the spaces up. All rooms come with creature comforts such as iPod docking stations and 37-inch flat-screen TVs, and some have furnished private balconies with views of the Pool Piazza or Grand Terrace. Bathrooms are spa-like, with a rainfall shower, Remède bath products and white marble vanities; plush robes hang ready to be grabbed after a soak in the separate tub.
Outside, the hotel’s 40,000-square-foot Pool Piazza is bedecked with candy cane-striped cushioned lounge chairs and features a waterfall and stone fireplace; the adjacent Grand Terrace provides a year-round diversion with bocce, badminton and table tennis. For a decadent breakfast at the Astor Court, order the lobster frittata or lemon-scented buttermilk pancakes, and when you’re ready to grab a seat at the St. Regis Bar for a libation, we recommend trying the signature West Paces Mary, a Bloody Mary with a surprising Southern twist: pickled okra juice. Elsewhere, there’s the 10-treatment-room Remède Spa, as well as a 24-hour fitness club.
In the Area
Buckhead is Atlanta’s most well-heeled nabe, with upscale eateries such as Umi Sushi (next door to the hotel), where the ultra-fresh Sanmori sashimi plate is a must-try. Also nearby is Chops Lobster Bar; the vibe here is that of an exclusive club, and the best way to order the crustacean is lightly crisped with drawn butter. A mile away is the city’s high-end shopping destination, Phipps Plaza, which has retailers such as L.K. Bennett, Valentino, Versace and Michael Stars. For a taste of Southern history, visit the Atlanta History Center, just down the road; a particular treat is the fully restored Tullie Smith Farm, with actors who bring the plantation-era farm to life.
