Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great Buckhead location near MARTA transit stop
  • Whimsical decor and focus on style
  • Bright rooms are playful with mismatched patterns and artwork
  • Cozy rooftop whiskey bar and contemporary comfort food at Cook Hall
  • Ample socializing spaces: garden terrace and hip lobby
  • Rooms have iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and free water bottles
  • 24-hour room service
  • Free car service to nearby spots

Cons

  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Pool is small and overlooks the street
  • Open bathrooms in some rooms are small and not family-friendly
  • Expensive valet parking

Bottom Line

This design-focused, chic hotel offers a younger, funkier alternative to upscale hotels in Atlanta. The contemporary style ranges from the antler-adorned chandeliers in the lobby to the uber-modern, minimalist decor in other common areas. The 291 comfortable rooms are whimsical in design with playful patterns and mismatched artwork. This hotel is fun and lively -- especially the rooftop whiskey bar -- but the small pool and open bathrooms might be problematic for some guests.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

An upscale location in Buckhead, close to restaurants and shopping

The W Atlanta Buckhead is located on Peachtree Road, an extension of Atlanta's main drag, Peachtree Street. It's within walking distance of Lenox Shopping Center and the Buckhead subway stop, which will take you straight to Downtown Atlanta 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. However, the lively nightlife scene died down a bit 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.

  • 27-minute drive or 35-minute subway ride to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
  • 1-minute walk to the Buckhead MARTA Station
  • 4-minute walk to Lenox Shopping Center
  • 10-minute drive or 30-minute subway ride to the Atlanta Botanical Garden
  • 11-minute drive or 11-minute subway ride to the High Museum of Art
  • 15-minute drive or 23-minute subway ride to the CNN Center
  • 15-minute drive or 26-minute subway ride to the Georgia Aquarium
  • 16-minute drive or 25-minute subway ride to World of Coca-Cola
  • 16-minute drive or 23-minute subway ride to Centennial Olympic Park and the Fountain of Rings
  • 17-minute drive or 27-minute subway ride to the Georgia Dome
