Atlanta only has a handful of true five-star experiences, and the St. Regis is one of them. First off, a butler service comes with each room. Don't want to make your own coffee, or need someone to fetch you ice for your whiskey? No worries; there's someone on hand to do it for you. For a city hotel, guest rooms are massive, starting at 440 sq. ft., with suites ranging from 680 sq. ft. to the Empire Suite's spacious 2,800 sq. ft. The palatial pool piazza is the most happening spot in the hotel complex, though it can often be hard to find a chair during peak summer months as everyone it seems also wants to read, sip a cocktail poolside, or make use of the billiards room, fireplace, and Jacuzzi. There's also the Remède Spa and 24-hr. fitness center, should you start to turn to a crisp from sitting out in the sun too long. Even if you can't afford to stay here—as you might expect, it isn't cheap—book a table for brunch (or the daily afternoon tea) at Astor Court and try one of the signature Bloody Marys (called the West Paces Mary at this location) for which the St. Regis is known.
