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've long wanted to stay at the St. Regis, as it seems to be the go-to luxury hotel. The room was recently renovated and had everything we could of asked for, no complaints there. The bathroom was great, the bed was amazing. The only complaint was the service. When checking in the valet greeted me with "How can I help you?" only to be confused when I said I was checking-in. We later requested for some shoes to be shined and they said they would be delivered by 8am, but didn't leave them at our door because our privacy light was on. I thought this was odd. I also asked for a drink to be delivered, only to be told they didn't have it. Even though it was in the mini-bar (was not cold). Again, minimal issues but all service related. Through the service issues, we have already booked our next trip to St. Regis.
We hadn’t stayed at the St. Regis in a couple of years, and we were excited to return as it’s always been one of my favorites. It has really gone downhill, and we were not impressed. I don’t think we will be returning based on our experience this trip. The room was not clean and seemed very used. The room service was hit or miss. Breakfast the first day was hardly edible. The second day was fine. We needed cribs for our babies, and they were nothing like we’ve had at other five star hotels. The paint was chipped and linens were very cheap. When you book the nicest room at another five star hotel, you are made to feel special. At the Mandarin in Vegas, we received a nice sleep sack for our baby with little baby toiletries and a rubber ducky. We didn’t have that experience here at all. Had we at least had a clean room, I wouldn’t have written this review, but the bathroom especially is in need of some revamping. Save the money and go elsewhere because the St. Regis’ rooms are not like they once were.
everything is 5 star! friendly staff, beautiful rooms, great location, walking distance to some of the best restaurants in Atlanta. Great for a getaway weekend, or buisness trip to atlanta. Also, a beautiful wedding venue, serving delicious foodand drink.
I was given a gift card for afternoon tea at Astor court in the St. Regis Hotel. Another lady and I went on a Saturday afternoon. The presentation at the beginning was good but things kind of deteriorated from there. We didn't receive much attention after the food was brought, for example, we were never asked if we would like to sample a different tea from the one we chose. Also, it was a nice experience but very expensive at $55/per person!
Ice Skating at the St. Regis is a really nice experience for parents with younger kids. The cost for skating for adults with parking was $30.00 and for children the cost was $18.00. The attendants in the room with the ice skates were very helpful and kind. In addition, the attendants at the ice skating ring and in the food service area were exceptional as well. But, I would not recommend ice skating here for children older than 10 because the ring is far to small to pick up any speed while skating. However, St. Regis is an excellent places for young families that would enjoy bringing their kids ice skating during the holiday season. I was a little disappointed with the food presentation in comparison to the cost. My expectation was much higher for a hotel of this caliber.
