The best time of year to visit The St. Regis Atlanta is during the spring or fall, when it’s not too hot or humid and the city is buzzing with activity. You can still take advantage of the Pool Piazza during those months without fear of getting overheated. The pool area is spacious at 40,000 square feet and includes tropical landscaping, a trickling waterfall and tons of special amenities like frozen grapes on skewers, fruit-infused water, Evian spritzes, pool-side butlers and oversized towels.
Visiting during the winter isn’t a bad idea either: The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel gets decked out for the holidays, which is especially fun if you’re traveling with children. The lobby is converted into the home of a giant gingerbread house, afternoon tea is served with Santa and Mrs. Claus and the pool turns into an ice skating rink. Skates are available from toddler to adult size and if you want to glide without little ones underfoot, there’s even an adults-only skate session featuring holiday cocktails. The luxury Atlanta hotel owns a Zamboni machine that keeps the ice in pristine skating shape.
