This luxe JW property—the Marriott's hipper brand—is directly connected to the Lenox Square mall, across the street from the MARTA station; it's also a quick walk to Phipps Plaza mall and plenty of Buckhead's best restaurants. This is an understandably popular choice with shoppers but, true to Marriott fashion, it also attracts a good supply of business travelers. Rooms are charming, with contemporary patterns and mahogany pieces, and the picture windows show off the attractive Atlanta skyline and all of the city's green spaces. Corner rooms are superior; book one of these for more spacious digs. For the workout buffs, the fitness center is state-of-the-art, with cardio machines outfitted with TVs, locker rooms, showers, an indoor pool, and a sauna.
