A contemporary West Coast vibe permeates the design of this downtown hotel.
Canopies of shiny metal pieces dangle over the public spaces of this sleek, stylish, contemporary hotel. They represent the treed canopy that seems to overlay Atlanta. Drawing largely a business-focused clientele, the hotel offers 237 rooms divided into eight categories, with each offering unique features. The basic Wonderful Room has pillow-top beds with down-filled covers, Bliss spa amenity packs and large work surfaces. Each room type adds on to this basic package with upgraded features. Free daily newspaper, iPod docking stations, high-speed Internet, refrigerators and a special munchies box are included. A Bliss Spa, individually tailored wellness programs and yoga (this is the official hotel for the Southeast Yoga Conference) enhance a guest's stay. For a unique jogging experience, ask about the custom-guided running tour of downtown Atlanta, fashioned as either a 5K or a 10K course. Relax after work in The Living Room, a lounge with board games and books, or at DRINKSHOP for exotic contemporary cocktails. Seasonally open, Wet Bar is a 16th-floor pool bar with a covered rooftop. BLT Steak presents bistro-style steakhouse fare as well as excellent seafood. For those traveling with pets, pampering is available for Fido too. Perhaps unique to Atlanta, there is a helipad where helicopters bearing guests may land (fee $150).
