While Atlanta has a countless number of large hotels to choose from, my favorites are more of the charming variety, giving a stay in the city a one-of-a-kind experience.
The Artmore. The Spanish style hotel is a bit off the beaten path with its location in a quieter section of Midtown. It is the perfect size with 102 rooms and 33 suites. Bonus—the Artmore’s courtyard is fantastic for an after-dinner-drink during warm weather months.
Meliã. While this is a chain, the Meliã Atlanta is the first location in the United States. The Spanish hotel is a hotspot, especially during summer months as its rooftop pool is the place to see and be seen.
Two downtown hotels I like are the Glenn and the Ellis. Both boast great lobbies and unique rooms chicly styled. The Glenn, particularly, is located near many conference centers including the Georgia World Congress Center and Americas Mart.
The Georgian Terrace Hotel is perhaps one of the best boutique hotels in Atlanta.
Rich with southern culture and charm all wrapped around modern luxury, this boutique spot is consistently one of Atlanta's best hotels and for good reason.
It's ripe with antebellum history -- Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh stayed here before they attended the "Gone With The Wind" premiere at the historic Fox Theater, which is located right across the street.
The hotel has been around since 1911, has been restored and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Georgian Terrance has 103 rooms, filled with the modern conveniences of flat screen televisions and free Wi-Fi.
Be sure to have dinner at the Livingston Restaurant + Bar in the hotel -- and splurge on the lobster.
