Just by looking at the number of people at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, one can already tell that Atlanta, Georgia is one of the most visited cities and one of the best vacation spots in the United States. Tourists love the summer weather that Atlanta takes pride in all year long, especially when associated with its homey Southern atmosphere. If you are one of the many tourists enticed by this city’s world-class attractions, then you should find this review of Atlanta’s top resorts useful.
Grand Hyatt Atlanta.
Whether you’re spending a full week or a weekend in Atlanta, the Grand Hyatt is a perfect place to stay at because aside from the bend-over-backwards experience you always look for in top resorts, it can easily give you the best “local” experience you can get. You can visit some of the city’s world-renowned museums, most of which are just walking distance from the Grand Hyatt. The same can be said for weekend markets, and the stadium if you want to catch a few baseball games. So in a nutshell, Grand Hyatt Atlanta is your gateway to almost any place worth visiting in the city.
If you are looking for a hotel that is elegant and radiates luxury everywhere you look, you should definitely stay at the Ritz-Carlton when you visit Atlanta. What people love about this hotel is that they feel that the staff is perpetually attentive, and everything in the hotel is nice to look at, with its pastel interior and earthy undertones. Be sure not to miss out on the hotel’s spa as well. It was expanded in 2011, and has now become one of the well, ritziest spas in the area.
The St. Regis Atlanta.
This 5-star luxury hotel is famous for its ambience that brings out the art connoisseur in every guest. It could be because of the original art the hotel is famous for, or the lavish furnishing; whatever it is that lures thousands of affluent guests to book vacations in the resort yearly, it seems like they get their money’s worth because they just keep coming back. The poolside oasis can easily give a relaxing mood, which is just perfect if you’re visiting Atlanta to relax and rejuvenate.
Glenn Hotel, Autograph Collection.
By now you would think that only classic resort chains will make this list, but Glenn Hotel, Autograph Collection is also one of our picks for the best vacation spots in Atlanta. Technically, Glenn Hotel is a boutique hotel, but one of the reasons why we think it earned a place on this list is the overall brazen feel. The idea is that the host is a persona named “Glenn” and you are staying as one of his guests. If you don’t feel like staying inside the room (which is a very tempting option since the hotel has exceptional rooms), you can go down at the salon, or what Glenn calls his “living room” and mingle with other guests.
