Midtown Atlanta, Georgia
Hotel Midtown Atlanta
Curio Collection By Hilton
What it is
A sleek tower with humming bars, modernist spa and a sceney rooftop pool flanked by private cabanas.
What it isn't
Kid-focused. Thrills here are decidedly grown-up, by design (note the waiters delivering cocktails and fluffy towels to DJ beats at WET, the alfresco pool).
What we think
You know a hotel is cool when city locals flock there for drinks, dinner and more drinks, in that order. Hotel Midtown Atlanta, previously W Hotel Atlanta Midtown, fits the bill. You’ll spot both exceedingly hip and well-heeled Atlantans at the Lobby Bar and the coffee shop (with roasted beans by Umbria) that looks like it could have been shipped over from Italy. Designed by New York City-based Virserius Studio, rooms are fitted with modern Southern Comforts: Bluetooth speakers, Instagrammy artwork, plush bedding and a mini “Munchi and Mix” bar that’s primed for a midnight robe-wearing raid. If you want to #treatyoself to something extraordinary, upgrade to the Presidential Suite; the 1,600-square-foot space is fitted with a hanging kelly green divan and a deep soaking tub that fills from the ceiling.
You're here because
You have a thing for spas, and this one offers a glow peel that will take years off your face.
Kicking up your heels is easier, you’ve found, from your perch on a serpentine green velvet banquette at Forbidden Garden, a tucked-away corner of W’s Living Room restaurant. It’s Glitzy with a capital G, meant to summon age-old garden parties from decades past. You take a sip of your Mad Hatter cocktail, made with Patron, Grand Marnier, lime, agave, charcoal and (wait for it) edible glitter, and smile. This is living.

Midtown Atlanta, a two-block walk from Piedmont Park and the 30-acre Atlanta Botanical Garden, where you’ll see a 25-foot Earth Goddess sculpture made entirely of annual plants. The High Museum of Art, MODA, Piedmont Park, and Atlanta Botanical Gardens are all within a mile of our hotel.
