Destination

Atlanta is burning—the city is hot on cool, a whirlwind wonderland of exhilarating arts, sizzling nightlife, sensational shopping and dynamic dining, no more Gone With The Wind, all capital of the hip New South. Downtown Atlanta is movin’ on up, boldly buzzing as home to a host of Fortune 500 corporate headquarters and world-class academic institutions where work and play happily coexist in a cheerful consortium of commercialism and culture.

And boy, do they play. Because big is always better in the South, there’s always more to explore: the 70,500-seat Georgia Dome, home to the Atlanta Hawks, Falcons and championships like the Super Bowl and NCCA athletics; the five-million-gallon Georgia Aquarium; the Atlanta Braves’ 14 consecutive postseason appearances; Centennial Olympic Park, a tribute to 100 years of global sportsmanship; countless major art, science, nature and archaeology museums; and important Civil Right monuments at almost every corner. Oh, there’s more—a hip-hopping R&B scene, a vibrant theater and dance community, a presidential library, Stone Mountain Park, a regional theme park and championship golf just a tee away.

All this where streets filled with dogwood and azalea trees are accented by soft Southern drawls, where business sense is powered by gracious hospitality, where luxurious boutique shopping complements independent bohemian storefronts and BBQ, grits and fried chicken are just as at home as sushi, steak tartare and hummus. As long as you’re goin’ South, why not mix business with pleasure?

Features

W Atlanta – Downtown is an urban sanctuary for tie-loosening and kicking back after you’ve hustled and bustled your way through the extremities of everyday endeavors. With a luxuriously hip spa to rejuvenate those chakras, a trendy lounge for some unwind action, global gastronomy brimming with Southern hospitality and nightlife to put the cherry on top of your day, we put the upscale in downtown.

SWEAT® Fitness Center

In our 1,700-square-feet, state-of-the-art, fully-equipped SWEAT® Fitness Center, buff that body as you check out the scene overlooking one of our terraces through voyeuristic windows. Stretch high and reach for the sky where energizing is easy, whether you prefer yoga, pilates, sparring or just jogging. Gym rats and fitness warriors will love the comprehensive array of treadmills, elliptical machines and stationary bikes mounted with LCD TVs and iPod docking stations, weight machines, free weights, yoga mats, boxing stations and balance balls—where will you start? Or if you prefer the inspiration of customized workouts, our Whatever/Whenever® service will hook you up with a personal trainer, tough love optional. All guests enjoy complimentary access with their room key.

WET® Outdoor Pool

With an infinity-edge, you’re welcome to float on forever as spectacular views of downtown glimmer all around under the blue Southern skies. Want a sip after your dip?
