If you’re looking to live out your Rhett Butler fantasy, this is the place: the cast of Gone With the Wind stayed here for the Atlanta premiere, while the hotel’s historic details—marble columns, crystal chandeliers—give it an air of period splendor (it first opened its doors in 1911). The rooms are up to date, though: the Georgian Terrace underwent a major renovation in 2009 and since then has been revamping more suites, some of which have traded their kitchens for larger living areas. While the in-room décor is fairly unexciting, the rooms are comfortable and the suites enormous (some even have walk-in closets). The rooftop pool is the ideal place to cool off after a day of sightseeing in the Atlanta heat; follow a dip with dinner at Livingston, the glam onsite restaurant beloved for its early 20th-century aesthetic and modern American cuisine.
In the Area
This Midtown hotel is just across the street from the historic Fox Theatre; ask the concierge to get tickets if you want to see a show. Afterwards, be sure to stop in at Publik Draft House, just next door, to sample some of the dozens of bourbons on the menu. Downtown Atlanta is about a mile away, but the North Avenue Metro Station is a block from the hotel, which is helpful if you’re trying to avoid the city’s notorious gridlock. If you’re in town for the prestigious Atlanta Jazz Festival, held in Piedmont Park, you’ll be able to walk there from The Georgian Terrace. Are you the type who likes to pick up a cool new skill while on vacation? The city’s innovative Museum of Design, a short stroll from the hotel, has forward-thinking exhibits on wearable tech and offers open-to-the-public intro classes on coding and 3D printing.
How to Get There
The room was stunning and HUGE! Staff was friendly and quick to offer assistance. Check in was easy and fast. We booked a one bedroom suite and were given a one bedroom premier suite upon arrival. This suite was larger than my first apartment and was very nice! We were impressed!
Do you like going to the Fox Theatre? Are you coming from out of town? If so, do I have the place for you to stay! The Georgian Terrace Hotel, conveniently right across from the Fox, plus close to other Atlanta attractions. The was the first time staying at this hotel but they made me feel like I was a regular customer. Everyone we encountered from the valet parking, front desk, security and even the maintenance guy was friendly. The room was great, I thought it was going to be small being this was an old hotel but the room we had was very spacious and clean. So for any of you out of towners heading to the Fox Theatre, I highly recommend you stay at the Georgian Terrace Hotel.
The Property is centrally located, across from the Fabulous Fox Theater and surrounded by a plethora of quality restaurants. The staff was awesome and the rooms were all excellently appointed. The feedback received from each of our Board Members was equally positive. Kudos to George Lewis and his staff for making the stay a remarkable experience!
