Though a posh hotel needn't be the central focus of your vacation, it can certainly boost your overall experience from good to exceptional, particularly when it means you're staying in one of these 10 fantastic Atlanta hotels.
First, consider where you're apt to spend the majority of your time when you're in Atlanta. (Will you be shuttling between a trade show and the hotel or hopping around in your rental car every chance you get?) Then, plan accordingly. Though these hotels vary on their prices and offerings, all share a similar emphasis on providing a luxury experience.
Those looking to settle into historic accommodations in Midtown, for instance, will adore the glitzy ambiance and delicious restaurant at The Georgian Terrace, uniquely located across the street from the Fox Theatre. Fans of the W hotels should consider the downtown, Buckhead and Midtown locales of the modish chain. Midtown and Buckhead locations are particularly popular among the local crowd for their upscale drinks and picturesque views.
When considering accessibility, The Loews Atlanta hotel is within walking distance of a slew of award-winning restaurants in Midtown, and is just a short drive from the Woodruff Arts Center and the High Museum of Art. Meanwhile, both the St. Regis Atlanta and The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead both put posh accommodations--and convenience--at a premium in Buckhead.
