Curvaceous furnishings, backlit wall murals and look-at-me hues of fuschia and royal blue set a stylish scene at this hip hotel in downtown Atlanta. The lobby sets a club-like atmosphere with a 22-foot trickling water fountain and a 35,000-piece ceiling installation reminiscent of an enchanted forest. After an afternoon of shopping for designer duds in nearby Buckhead, you can lounge by the heated outdoor pool, sip on a frosty Southern cocktail from the glass-enclosed deck or get an energy boost from the Ginger Rub treatment at the on-site spa. Locals and guests alike flock to BLT Steak for splurge-worthy wagyu and platters of oysters, clams, crab claws, shrimp and lobster. Night owls can pregame at Drink Shop bar while sipping on artisanal cocktails with ice chipped off a 300-pound block.
In the Area
For a taste of something purely Atlantan, head to The Colonnade, an old school joint serving up stiff cocktails and crispy fried chicken (leave room for a slice of apple pie). For nouveau Southern, try Restaurant Eugene’s molasses-doused foie gras on French toast and one of mixologist Greg Best’s inventive cocktails infused with homemade tinctures and bitters. Then take a walk through the leafy Piedmont Park Conservancy, an urban swath of poplar- and hickory-shaded paths. Look out for whale sharks and manta rays at the Georgia Aquarium, one of the world’s largest, or meander the expansive collection 19th- and 20th-century American and European art in architect Renzo Piano’s recently expanded High Museum. Need some retail therapy? Hop MARTA for a 30-ride to Buckhead, Atlanta’s most affluent suburban neighborhood and shopping mecca.
How to Get There
Never written a review before. Compelled to do so. Found bunch of hair on a wall and floor of the bathroom. Told the front desk about it before heading out in the evening. Came back at night. Still there. Called the front desk. Didn’t seem to care. Will never stay there again
I stayed in the city to attend an FSU alumni event. My room was not ready. I was not in the best of moods. However, Danesha immediately followed up with housekeeping. She turned my mood around rather quickly.
The room was clean and it was a beautiful view of the city. I loved the vibe at the hotel bar. There was a DJ and a nice crowd. We ordered chicken tenders and they were delicious. I would definitely recommend this hotel
First off the lobby is basically a nightclub- loud and lots of people coming and going. I can’t fault this as it is the standard for the “w” hotels, though not my preference. We ended up here during labour day weekend when our original hotel was over booked and they asked us to move. Check in was good and nice hotel. Clean and good quality bedding. However- the room lighting was really odd and the room was so dark. The big surprise for us was the bathroom was totally open plan with a see through shower visible right through the room to the windows (separate toilet room thank goodness!). If I was travelling with friends or family this would be completely awkward- it’s definitely a couples hotel. The booking should probably make this clear, as we had no idea this was the case from booking or pictures.
