Summary


Pros

Cons

  • Daily Wi-Fi fee
  • Buckhead location a bit far from downtown attractions
  • Most bathrooms lack tubs, and come with hotel-brand toiletries

Bottom Line

The outstanding service and glamorous design at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead fall in line with customer's expectations of this luxury brand. The 517 rooms are mostly luxurious, with bright bay windows, iPod docks, plush linens, and warm colors, but feel slightly dated, with popcorn ceilings and run-of-the-mill wood furniture. Bathrooms have marble vanities and, in most, rainforest showerheads, but no separate soaking tubs and no name-brand toiletries. Property highlights include a big indoor pool, a high-end cafe, an ornate lobby, and a regal dining room. In Buckhead, it's bested by the Mandarin Oriental and the St. Regis.

Location

In affluent Buckhead, within walking distance of high-end shopping and the MARTA

Map of The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead

The Ritz-Carlton, 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.

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.

  • 7-minute walk to the Buckhead MARTA Station
  • 11-minute drive or 30-minute subway ride to the Atlanta Botanical Garden
