The St. Regis Atlanta has what many urban luxury hotels don’t — a genuine residential feel with a healthy dose of refined Southern charm. The exterior of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel echoes the Georgian and Tudor mansions in its surrounding neighborhood, the affluent enclave of Buckhead. Inside, two dramatic curved staircases flank each side of the luxury hotel’s lobby, a nod to regional architecture. In fact, it feels every inch the grand Southern estate, with original art pieces, oversized stone fireplaces, a handsome cozy library and personal butler service. Sure, there are rural inns and far-flung resorts that have similar features, but these charming amenities are scarce in major metropolitan cities.
Here, you can stay close to the action of Atlanta and still retreat to an oasis of calm. For example, the Mediterranean-styled pool is a palatial piazza with nary a skyscraper in sight — it feels so secluded, so resort-like it’s easy to forget a world-class city is just beyond the property perimeter.
