JW Marriott, AtlantaI have a bunch of gamer friends from the deep south and we have played online together for like a decade but. Until this point we had never actually met, and they were going to Atlanta for a concert. I found could fly there pretty cheaply and found that the JW Marriott in Buckhead was quite affordable.
I had stayed here before back in 2016, and there was a major redo since then, so I was kinda excited to stay again with plans to post about the property this time.
ArrivalI grabbed my bags at the airport and jumped on the Marta Gold (Doraville) Line up to the Lenox stop, which is literally across the street from the JW's entrance.
The RoomI was upgraded to a deluxe king (a larger room, bay window looking towards the city, extra open space, crazy big bathroom).
Executive LoungeThis hotel has always had a killer Executive lounge and I swear, it's gotten even better post Covid! They don't have breakfast service back up yet, but they do have the appetizer service on business nights, which I really love. It's seriously my favorite aspect of JW Lounges, and they really do a superb job here on it.
DiningThe Preserve is the Bar and Restaurant. Seating is all over the bar area and in the morning a buffet room is also open. Very comfortable and the list of dishes you can order is pretty expansive.
SummaryLuxury property for sure. Nicely appointed rooms, the lobby and event spaces are just so elegant. The lounge, wow, just amazing. #4 of the ones I have been to in the USA (which is a very long list so this is a great ranking). The gym and pool, are so far above expectations.
Oh, did I mention it's directly attached to the Lenox Mall, a fantastic super upscale shopping experience? I didn't? Well, now you know. Such convenience.
Tips: Well, rooms facing any direction has a good view, the city or the mountains. Lounge access? If you're staying during the week, yes, go for an executive room to get it. On the weekends? Only if you're addicted to them like I am.
