In affluent Buckhead, close to great shopping, restaurants and the subway
The Mandarin Atlanta is located on Peachtree Road, an extension of Atlanta's main drag, Peachtree Street. It's within walking distance of the Buckhead subway stop, which will take you straight to Downtown Atlanta and its many attractions in about 15 minutes.
Buckhead is an affluent area in uptown Atlanta with tree-lined streets, beautiful mansions, high-rise office buildings, and luxury hotels. It's Atlanta's third largest financial district, and draws tourists and locals alike with its upscale shops, magnificent restaurants, and bars. (Its lively nightlife scene died down a bit, however, after an ordinance was passed requiring all bars to close by 2:30 a.m.) The area also boasts the Atlanta History Center, a 32-acre space with gardens, trails, a historic farm and mansion, and a museum.
This elegant, 127-room luxury hotel is located in a quiet area in Buckhead, but close to restaurants, shops and great nightlife, and a couple of blocks from the subway. The spacious, high-tech rooms are the main draw here, but there's also a wonderful spa (a destination for locals), a great indoor lap pool, a bright fitness center, a casual but stylish restaurant, and a lounge overlooking the beautiful gardens.
