With a spacious lobby and a slew of smiling faces to welcome you, the Ritz-Carlton Downtown Atlanta is a retreat from the bustling city. Located right on the corner of Peachtree Street, guests are perfectly situated to explore the city. Down the block you’ll find several bars and restaurants to check out, while within the hotel itself you’ll have access to AG, a modern steakhouse, Lumen Bar, an elegant cocktail lounge, and Jittery Joe’s, a laidback coffee shop located on the first floor.
The hotel has recently began a slight renovation project, with a focus on the guest’s overall experience. Each guestroom will be transformed to represent the evolution of the city of Atlanta with inspiration from the city itself. With a modern and creative feel, the hotel has already started to incorporate décor and room accents that mimic the colors of Atlanta’s iconic Piedmont Park as well as featuring artwork commissioned from local artist, Erin Palovick. The hotel will reimagine every guestroom to reflect the bright and culturally unique city of Atlanta over the next few months.
A real treat at the Ritz-Carlton is the Club Lounge on the 24th floor that has been expanded to include more space for guests to unwind with a soda, water, or even a glass of wine. Over the past few years, this hotel has been unveiling new additions such as the Wellness Level in 2017 and the sleek AG restaurant in 2016. Now, with the guestrooms getting a facelift, the property will truly offer a completely elevated guest experience. See below for an inside look at the hotel from Becky Bond, the Public Relations Coordinator at The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta.
