I love to travel and when I do, I like to experience the best properties a city has to offer. Atlanta has a good number of luxury hotels to choose from. We have a Four Seasons, St. Regis, Ritz-Carlton and a Rosewood Hotel – all offering something unique. As I mentioned in a previous post, I recently stayed at the Mansion on Peachtree over the Fourth of July holiday. My stay was exceptional. The hotel was full of life and the staff was extremely attentive. I really love the interior design of the hotel because it’s a great mix of classic design and modern furnishings.
Over the past few months, the Mansion has had it’s fair share of up’s and down’s, but I really love the property, location and service. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, you should put it on your list. It’s conveniently located on a prime stretch of Peachtree Road and is within walking distance to Phipps Plaza and Lenox Square.
Below: In between Reception and The Bar is a quaint space to sit and relax in from the fireplace. The stairs lead to the meeting spaces on the floor above.
Below: The Mansion Bar. One of my favorite spaces in the hotel. The room is long and narrow and it has plenty of intimate spaces to sit and chat. The doors at the far end lead out to a covered terrace where you can sip on cocktails when the air outside is cooler. You can also dine outside.
Below: NEO. Having breakfast at NEO was truly enjoyable. Everything was just perfect. I had a table overlooking the English Gardens and it was a terrific way to start my day. I have dined here many times and it’s always excellent.

Below: My room. It was quite spacious and really felt like I had my own apartment. The door leads outside to a covered terrace with a table and two chairs.
Below: The framed picture to the left is actually where the television is. It wasn’t perfectly situated for watching tv in bed, but with a little re-arranging of the side chairs and ottoman, I was all set.
Below: The mini-bar was stocked with everything (snacks, cold sodas, water, plenty of alcoholic choices, wine). To the left is the entry and to the right is a dressing room and large bathroom.
