Bottom Line

The 237-room W Atlanta Downtown -- with its sexy infinity pool and dramatic design -- is a neighborhood hot spot. Branches climb up the walls in the lobby and silver mobiles hang from the ceiling. Beyond the funky and artistic design, the W has all the amenities travelers expect from a four-pearl property: a luxurious spa, large fitness center, and high-tech rooms with flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. The heated outdoor pool turned rooftop bar is popular by night, but common complaints include fees for Wi-Fi and valet parking.

Map of W Atlanta - Downtown

Once sparsely populated and somewhat seedy, Downtown Atlanta now draws crowds year-round. The neighborhood started as a business and financial hub (and it still is), but it has slowly become one of the most interesting areas in the city for tourists as well as for locals. The Georgia Dome, home to the Atlanta Falcons, and Philips Arena, home to the Atlanta Hawks, can both be found downtown, as can the Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the world.
