Luxury in Buckhead: 10 Best Hotels in the City

Buckhead hails as Atlanta’s most exclusive address. You’ll find shopping at Phipps Plaza, with Gucci and Armani. Visitors and locals alike also enjoy premium shopping and dining at the new Buckhead Atlanta, with Brunello Cucinelli, Hermes, Doraku Sushi and more.

The best way to immerse yourself in the opulence is to stay or play at one of Buckhead’s gorgeous hotels. Relax in the spa of Mandarin Hotel, Atlanta, with 13 treatment rooms and a couples' suite. Take a refreshing soak in the indoor saline pool at Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, with a sweeping outdoor patio. Visit the Zen Garden at Grand Hyatt, affectionately known in Atlanta as the "hidden garden," or sample private labels at InterContinental’s Bourbon Bar.

JW Marriott's location edges them into the second spot on the list, with indoor connection to Lenox Square Mall and across the street from the MARTA Station. The St. Regis Hotel's keystone amenity is their personal service, but the Pool Piazza will also pamper a weary traveler’s heart. Young professionals will enjoy the trendy atmosphere and rooftop bar of W Atlanta-Buckhead.

Westin Atlanta’s newly renovated rooms are spacious and relaxing, and The Palm restaurant makes a delectable chicken parmesan. Embassy Suites’ 2-bedroom spreads, with indoor and outdoor pools and laundry service make an ideal family travel selection. Finally, Hyatt Place is comfortable and spacious, and an affordable Buckhead option.
