W Atlanta - Buckhead
What it is
A 286 room bolthole in Atlanta’s ultra-glam Buckhead district.
What it isn't
The Old South. The 12-story hotel just had a $20 million renovation.
What we think
They don’t call it the Beverly Hills of the East for nothing. It takes a lot to wow in Buckhead—arguably Georgia’s hippest locale by any measure, where dazzling watering holes and lush Greek Revival estates converge. But W Atlanta Buckhead could satisfy any impossible to please local, thanks to its glimmering infinity pool overlooking the cityscape, popping 12th floor bar accessed by a glass-walled elevator (order the Trouble Maker cocktail for obvious reasons), and doting 24-hour room service, ideal for those inevitable late night calorie binges. We love that the newly revamped rooms combine the classic (chintz) with the clean lined (boxy floor-to-ceiling tufted headboards).
You're here because
Like Atlanta’s own Kanye West, you never stop working, and they’ve got a bazillionaire-ready business center all set for making deals (and, you know, faxing stuff).
When Atlantans need slap-yo-momma-good comfort food, they have countless sources to get it. Which is why you’re so astounded that the hotel’s restaurant, Cook Hall, is so jam packed. But one bite of your duck tacos with pickled slaw, and one spoonful of your local goat cheese panna cotta with orange blossom honey, and you decide you’ve never truly had comfort food before now. It's bliss.
On the Buckhead neighborhood’s Peachtree road, about a mile from The Shops at Buckhead (where you’ll find outposts of Dior, Hermès, and Alabama legend Billy Reid).
