With its gray pitched roof, wrought-iron detail, and 3,500 acres (with 75 acres of vineyards), the Inn at Château Élan looks like a 16th-century country estate in France; all 346 guest rooms have country-French furnishings and oversize garden tubs.

A 25-story hotel rising high in the downtown skyline, the Ritz-Carlton in Five Points is less than a mile from major attractions like Philips Arena, Centennial Olympic Park, and the Georgia Aquarium.

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 (a trio of shopping centers adjacent to the hotel house Neiman Marcus, Saks, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale's, among others).

A LEED-certified inn with 20 simple rooms, each with two bunks. (Hot showers are in a bathhouse.) Most guests pass their time hiking, chatting, reading, or playing board games in the Sunrise Room or rocking in an Adirondack chair on the wraparound porch.
