Atlanta has many hotels, especially top-name brands, but there’s only one Loews. While most visitors stay downtown or in Buckhead, midtown is the ideal location, especially if you’re traveling on business or in town for an event like the Atlanta Food and Wine Festival or any event in Piedmont Park. The hotel is a short walk from two MARTA stations, including Midtown Station, and a number of museums and restaurants. The Margaret Mitchell House and Museum and the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta Museum are just a few of the best.
The hotel features 26 floors with over 400 rooms including 44 suites like the one I stayed in, pictured above. Each offers unrivaled views of the city, free WiFi, coffee service, flat screen television, desk space and more. Some rooms have blackout curtains or doors to keep out light. King or double beds have quality cotton linens and the bathrooms have frameless glass showers, separate bathtubs, and cozy bathrobes.
Amenities of the hotel include a spa, fitness center, event space, business center, in-house restaurant and bar, complimentary car service, and concierge. The fitness center is available for all guests, including weights and treadmills. Exhale Spa has daily classes like barre and yoga, while the spa offers acupuncture, massage, facials, and even a traditional Turkish hammam for a small fee. Pet lovers can rejoice that their pals are welcome during their stay.
The Loews Atlanta lobby features a bar that is buzzing with activity on every night of the week. They serve handcrafted cocktails, wines, and craft beers. Across the lobby is Saltwood, the hotel’s in-house restaurant that focuses on charcuterie and other small plates. But they also have healthy options like their vegan-friendly tofu and farro bowl with curry sauce. They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.
