The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead
3434 Peachtree Rd., Buckhead
Situated in Buckhead opposite Lenox Square (read: in close proximity to much of the city’s high-end shopping and fancier restaurants) this Ritz has a classic, grand lobby with gilded-frame paintings and dark wood. Upstairs, the guest rooms are light-filled and modern with mahogany floors, custom cabinetry, a walk-in shower and marble vanity. A wellness level, on the 9th floor, features decadent treatments like a honey and rose facial and a lavender body wrap. A rooftop, glass-encased Olympic-sized swimming pool is a great place to unwind in cooler months.
The St. Regis Atlanta
88 W. Paces Ferry Rd., Buckhead
The St. Regis in Atlanta is situated in Buckhead, conveniently walking distance from Whole Foods—in case you want to pick up some snacks for the room (or forgotten toiletries). The hotel has a grand lobby with a soaring ceiling, crystal chandelier, impressive, winding staircases—with a tea room, meeting spaces, restaurant (Atlas is great), and bar spinning off of it. Suites here are grandly appointed, as can be expected, and really generous on space, with particularly luxurious powder rooms. Their 40,000-square foot “Pool Piazza” is flanked by inviting red-and-white striped lounge chairs—and transformed into an ice skating rink for a few months of winter fun.
Mandarin Oriental Atlanta
3376 Peachtree Rd., Buckhead
This grand Buckhead Hotel was originally a Rosewood, but it’s been under the operation of Mandarin Oriental since 2012. You’ll find all the amenities you’d expect at a Mandarin, including great service, comfy beds, and Asian-inflected decor, plus a cushy spa and a 60-foot indoor lap pool. While rooms on the building's exterior have gorgeous views of the city, the interior rooms look out onto a lovely courtyard garden—perfect for a stroll with your morning coffee.
