One of the city's biggest convention hotels, this Hyatt was designed in 1967 by famed Atlanta architect John Portman and underwent a major $65 million renovation in 2011. The very average-size rooms have a contemporary flavor and feature the Hyatt's "premium bedding" concept, with pillow-top mattresses, high-thread-count sheets, and feather blankets. Rates are right on point for downtown, no matter the time of year. Twenty-Two Storys (housed on the 22nd floor, of course) is a laid-back sports bar with more than 30 beers on offer and above-average hotel lounge fare. There's also the more casual Southern-focused Sway restaurant and Market, which is open 24 hrs. a day. The hotel is connected to the Peachtree Center mall by a covered walkway.
