It’s rare that I get to stay at hotels in Atlanta since I live here, so when I had the chance to stay at The Westin Buckhead Atlanta‘s refurbished rooms, I knew I couldn’t turn it down. The Westin is one of a dozen luxury properties in Buckhead, within walking distance from Lenox Square Mall and Phipps Plaza, the city’s best shopping.
Many nearby shops and boutiques offer discounts for showing your room key. Buckhead is well located for visitors to the city, as you can access the attractions downtown on MARTA via the Buckhead Station, but astay outside of the melee. It’s a popular choice for its proximity to the Peachtree Road Race and the Fourth of July fireworks, as well as in-town races and events.

After work, I checked into my king bedroom with views of the Buckhead skyline. I took a few minutes to put on my Heavenly robe and sink into the Heavenly bedding. The best thing about this particular Westin property is the many windows, allowing you to enjoy natural light, but blackout curtains cover them when it’s time for bed.
The rooms are decorated in sleek, modern and neutral furnishings. The headboard has accent lights so you don’t disturb your partner if you want to stay up to read. The flat-screen television has premium and local channels.
The desk and loveseat make you feel like you’re in an apartment rather than a hotel. WiFi is available for $9.95 per day, which is the only downside here. The bathrooms are large with waterfall showerheads, luxury toiletries, Heavenly towels and plenty of light for getting ready.
Westin believes in promoting health and wellness during your stay, so guests have 24-hour access to the fitness studio, which includes ellipticals, treadmills, and weights. There’s also a pool and sauna. The desk has a map of nearby running paths.
I forgot my shoes, so I got to test out the New Balance Gear Lending program I first found out about in Charlotte. Just be sure to ask when you check in and leave the shoes and clothes in your room when you leave.
Guests are spoiled for dining choices during their stay. The Westin has an in-house coffee shop, the award-winning Palm Restaurant and 24 hour in-room dining.
Nearby you can dine at St. Cecilia, Holeman & Finch Public House, Restaurant Eugene or any of the restaurants and eateries at Phipps or Lenox. The new Buckhead Atlanta complex also has shopping and dining, including the city’s first Shake Shack.
The Westin Buckhead is a popular hotel for conferences and groups and their new Tangent space is great for co-working. The renovated presidential suite is the ultimate splurge, with a patio overlooking Buckhead, a fireplace, Jacuzzi style tub, and in-room sauna. If you’re not ready to drop that much dough, try one of the executive-level rooms, which provide access to the executive lounge, offering newspapers, snacks, and breakfast.
Westin properties also go above and beyond in their efforts to be green, including the opportunity to turn down cleaning services in favor of a $5 dining credit or 500 Starwood points. Recycling bins are found throughout the property.
The Westin Buckhead Atlanta Hotel is located at 339 Peachtree Road, Atlanta, Georgia 30326. You can book by calling 404-365-0065 or visiting their website. Rooms start at $140 for standard rooms and go up for suites.
My stay was hosted by the Westin Buckhead Atlanta Hotel and Liz Lapidus Public Relations, but all opinions are my own.
