This stylish, 110-room boutique in Downtown Atlanta, built in 1923, is a hotel with a conscience: It's inside an adaptive reuse historical building; rooms have smart thermostats to conserve energy; high-end H20 bath products are organic; and the linens are fair trade. Although standard rooms are on the small side for the city, and can be a bit dark, they come with iPod docks and (albeit small) flat-screen TVs, as well as contemporary, upscale decor. The hotel's rooftop bar -- which boasts stunning views of the city -- is a highlight.
This 127-room boutique in Downtown Atlanta is located in a historic building that was once ravaged by the deadly Winecoff fire -- but inside, it's thoroughly stylish and contemporary. Its cute lobby has fresh flowers and a cool light fixture, its restaurant serves delicious farm-to-table cuisine, and rooms -- though on the smaller side -- are sophisticated, with modern technology. Perks like free Wi-Fi and a free wine tasting every evening add value, and female travelers may appreciate the women's-only floor, which includes added security and a separate entrance.
This 102-room boutique in Midtown Atlanta blends some of its original 1920's Spanish architecture with modern, stylish interior decor. The Artmore's garden courtyard, with brown wicker lounge chairs and a stone fountain, is a highlight, and offers shelter from the city's hubbub. Rooms are upscale, with bright decor in shades of red, white, and cream, and come with up-to-date technology: flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi. But the hotel lacks an on-site restaurant and pool, and you'll have to drive to see the sites in Downtown Atlanta.
