The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta

Where contemporary, classic ATL meet
The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta is at the center of it all. And while a lot of that has to do with the luxury property’s downtown location, the feeling of having everything at your reach comes from within the 444-room hotel, too.

For those who appreciate high-end touches, the lobby’s light marble flooring, massive chandelier and modern wingback armchairs will be appealing. If you prefer a more relaxed ambience, there’s color-popping artwork and a funky bar, Lumen, elsewhere in the hotel.

The rooms lean more toward clean lines and creamy hues, while subtly elegant bathrooms come with vessel sinks.

AG, the warm, vintage-style steakhouse on the second floor, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Locals and visitors flock to the place for its tasty take on Southern cuisine (try the rib-eye) and because it’s so close to everything.
