Splendor has a New Address: 88 West Paces Ferry Road | St. Regis Atlanta (photo tour)

St. Regis Hotel & Residences Atlanta

The St. Regis Atlanta Hotel & Residences opened officially today shortly before noon with a few hundred guests in attendance. It was a really special event to attend, so thanks to Jay Jacob! If you follow my blog, you have seen some pre-construction photos of the interior a while back. You are going to be amazed at how it all came together. Atlanta is so lucky to have the St. Regis brand here in Buckhead. I have a large number of photos (33) in this post and probably could have split it up, but why make you wait? Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed seeing the hotel. It’s quite special, so make sure you try to see it in person. I’m going to find out how the condos are coming along, so I’ll be back with more.

    Thanks for all of the photos, the place looks great. I was at B&N flipping through magazines the other day and saw the write-up in Jezebel, congrats!

    Why is it that Architects never get the recognition they deserve? It took a huge design team to pull this off, interiors is just one group of many who made this building great.

    Thanks Kevin. It appears all of the media articles are listing the interior designer as the project designer as well. I’m glad to see you give the architect credit.

    Personally, the idea of fake grass is disgusting…real plants convert CO2 to O2 (which we need to breathe). Also, as luxurious as this may be, it’s a tacky location with suburban-style parking. Enjoy your faux-royalty.

    How is Buckhead a tacky location? And by the way, I highly doubt 75 sq ft of grass is going to make a considerable difference in outdoor air quality… The lot the hotel was built on used to be a giant parking lot.
