The Westin Buckhead Atlanta Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Nicely located adjacent to Lenox Square Mall
  • Free car service within 2 miles of hotel
  • Rooms are spacious and light
  • Spacious and well-outfitted fitness center
  • Peaceful indoor pool with lounge chairs and outdoor sun deck
  • Recycling bins in every room
  • Free bottled water

Cons

  • Double rooms have single sinks
  • One ordinary dining option on-site
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The Westin Buckhead is a fairly typical upper-level chain hotel suitable for business or pleasure travelers. The whole place is a bit dated, but appearances aside, it ticks all the boxes a large four-pearl hotel should -- with a few unexpected extras, including free car service within two miles. The heated indoor pool is lovely, though it is adjacent to a rather sad and empty sunbathing deck. The club lounge has a reputation for being one of the best in the chain, and it is spacious and more modern looking than the rest of the hotel. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious but bland. For the average guest, the Westin Buckhead is an adequate, not-so-extraordinary chain hotel.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Less than 15 minutes from downtown Atlanta near the best shopping in Buckhead

The Westin Buckhead is located along a main vein to Atlanta. It has easy access to the Lenox Shopping Center and all the high-end retail of this affluent area, as well as public transport that goes relatively close to all the draws of downtown Atlanta.

Located about 15 minutes from downtown, 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 with its upscale shops, restaurants, and bars. However, the lively nightlife scene here has died down a bit after an ordinance was passed requiring all bars to close by 2:30 a.m. The area is home to the Atlanta History Center, a 32-acre space with gardens, trails, a historic farm and mansion, and a museum.

  • 28-minute drive to the airport
  • 1-minute walk to the Buckhead MARTA Station
  • 10-minute drive or 35-minute subway ride to the Atlanta Botanical Garden
  • 13-minute drive or 15-minute subway ride to the High Museum of Art
  • 14-minute drive or 30-minute subway ride to the Georgia Aquarium
  • 15-minute drive or 26-minute subway ride to World of Coca-Cola
  • 15-minute drive or 26-minute subway ride to Centennial Olympic Park and the Fountain of Rings
  • 16-minute drive or 26-minute subway ride to the CNN Center
  • 17-minute drive or 30-minute subway ride to the Georgia Dome
