The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead
The grande dame of Atlanta's luxury hotels, the Ritz has pride of place on Buckhead's main drag, where fabulous shops and department stores abound. The 510 guestrooms are outfitted with custom millwork cabinetry, 400-threat-count sheets, and flat-screen TVs. Many have updated bathrooms too, with glass step-in showers and rainfall showerheads. Rooms on the ninth-floor Wellness Level offer preferred access for spa appointments and come stocked with indulgent amenities like air filters, sound machines, yoga mats. Plus, the hotel's enclosed second-floor junior Olympic-size pool and companion hot tub are just the thing to take the edge off after a day of exploring the city.
