This is a new hotel, opened within the last several years located in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, an upscale area on the opposite side of the city from the airport. However, the hotel isn't in the center of Buckhead and is not within walking distance of any MARTA station. Thee's a large supermarket across the street and several restaurants within a block or so, but nothing else is accessible without a car or use of the hotel's limited local limo service. The hotel appears to be constructed and furnished to a high standard. It has an extensive art collection, including some impressionist paintings. Rooms are spacious with nice bathrooms and include the standard St Regis amenities, including butler service. The hotel has a variety of pleasant sitting areas in the lobby and on the second floor. I arrived in the middle of a Saturday afternoon for a free one night stay. When I asked at check in, a very nice suite was found for me after some consultation among the staff. I don't think my suite is in the upgrade pool. It was large and very high tech (remote panel for lights, window coverings, etc.). The living room had a dining area and large desk. The bathroom had an extremely pleasant huge garden tub under a large window, a separate rain shower stall, and a dressing table. However, the closet consisted of two tiny and irregularly shaped spaced with narrow doors tucked into a corner of the bathroom. The hotel has only one restaurant; it features new American cuisine but almost has the appearance of an all day dining restaurant with casual pottery dishes and no table cloths. As there were a lot of children in the dining room, I opted to order dinner from the restaurant menu in the wine bar and I was very happy with my meal, including the wine. There's a separate cigar bar. I also attended the opening of champagne with a saber, which was done with great flourish before the complimentary champagne was passed to the spectators. This occurred between the wine bar and a sort of display wine cellar room. The hotel has a very nice spa and a gorgeous heated outdoor swimming pool with a daytime poolside snack bar. There's a second grand staircase by the pool, in addition to the one in the lobby.
