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.
How to Get There
I had looked forward to staying at this beautiful hotel but when I arrived around 4 pm, I was told that our room wasn't ready. I had booked a king size bed and was told that only queens were ready. Since I had a reception to attend at 6, I needed to get into a room and get dressed; they could not tell me when a king would be available, so I agreed to a queen. I was given a free drink ticket for the bar, however, when I first decided to wait for the room, then later changed my mind as the clock was ticking and my husband would soon be joining me.
The room was gorgeous and exceedingly clean and comfortable. However, over our two night stay, we never had housekeeping services! I called late afternoon and asked why the room had not been tidied, towels replinished, bed made, etc.....and was told someone would come on up. No one did! After our banquet that evening, I again called downstairs and was told that maybe we had a "do not disturb light on." I was not familiar with that process....found out that there was a light in the bathroom to signal this. I asked how I would have known that and was told that I should have been told at check in. I was not. Clean towels were brought up, but I like my bed made every day and this was totally unacceptable.
Just spent three nights at this beautiful property with my husband as a much needed respite from our daily lives. We typically like to dine off property when traveling to take in the local cuisine but we didn’t leave the St. Regis from Friday afternoon until noon on Monday because the amenities and dining were so good we didn’t feel the need to step out the front door to find anything better.
The room was fantastic - spacious, clean and well appointed. The technology driven ‘control panel’ for the room was great! High quality brands for the toiletries and nice extras like a loofa and sewing kit. The only thing I found missing was makeup removing wipes. Comfortable bed, toilet closet and two sinks were other pluses along with two closets for clothing and ample drawers for storage.
Service was impeccable. Of note, Saulvador at the pool, Miguel in the bar, Ms. Barbara with housekeeping and Juned who taught us how to take the neck off a champagne bottle with a saber! Everyone we encountered was poised to serve and guaranteed to meet or exceed expectations.
I asked for sliced pineapple that wasn’t a menu item by the pool and received an entire bowl full of freshly sliced pieces along with a lovely side of Greek yogurt and honey. We also asked for a bottle list as we weren’t seeing what we wanted on the pool menu. Request was granted and they remembered what we were drinking and had a bottle chilled when we arrived at the pool the next day!
Also, asked Miguel for a pear martini and though he was stumped for roughly 20 seconds he disappeared briefly and returned minutes later with poached and caramelized pears from the bake shop and crafted the best cocktail I’ve ever had!
Don’t hesitate to stay here! If you are trying to decide between the Four Season, Waldorf or here - St Regis is the answer!
In room dining was also top-notch!
This St Regis Hotels is beautiful. The rooms are very nice. The pool is underwhelming in size, but the staff there is just lovely.
Unfortunately, the valets are rude and careless... they almost hit my pregnant friend trying to back a Rolls into the center spot to show it off. Someone had to shove her out of the way. The car was clearly more important than their guest. REALLY TACKY.
We had high tea during our stay and it was wonderful. The staff was helpful and pleasant. The food was gorgeous and delicious.
Let me start off by saying I’m a Marriott loyalist, I know the brand standard. Pros: soft linens (towels and sheets), large room and bathroom, modern technology in the room (everything is ran on electronics even the curtains), plenty of table and dresser space with tabletop items hidden in drawers, excellent housekeeping and turn down service, great soaking tub, hot water, every room had doorbell, other than valet the service was great inside the hotel, and plenty of in room amenities. Cons: the valet and doorman didn’t provide the exclusive luxury service for a top tier brand. At the Waldorf of Orlando, the luxury service was felt walking immediately on to the property, bathroom need renovation (replace all tile), and the sink faucet was short in distance. I highly recommended this place to stay if you are looking for a true luxury and exclusive experience in Atlanta. Overall, I will definitely come back.
Front desk was illiterate and horrible
and night service didn’t care. Was gonna book but afraid our group won’t be spending our money effectively. Booked Mandarin. Phone person was horrible! They didn’t care! Off for a great weekend!
