5 hip hotels for a staycation in ATL

Staycations are a fantastic way to fall deeper in love with your hometown and learn new things about it. And we Georgians are lucky that we don’t have to travel far, or even out of state, to experience everything Atlanta has to offer.

From bustling neighborhoods to Beltline trails, museums, dining destinations, rooftop bars and even underground clubs, these five hotels have everything you need to treat yourself to a little relaxation on your staycation:

Suite-n your stay at the Wylie Hotel

Built in 1929, the newly renovated Wylie Hotel was the original home of Atlanta dance club MJQ, as well as Mrs. P’s Tea Room, where Atlanta’s first drag show is said to have taken place. Wylie hotel developers paid homage to the building’s history by reviving Mrs. P’s as a modern bar and kitchen, where today they serve southern eats and inventive drinks.

The hotel is located in one of Atlanta’s most inspiring districts and offers plenty of things to do. Explore the hotel’s guide to the neighborhood here.

The Wylie Hotel, 3376 Peachtree Road NE, 877-684-5023, wyliehotel.com.

See why the Westside is the best side at Bellyard

Atlanta’s Westside is booming, and that’s a fact. It houses Atlanta’s largest and newest greenspace, Westside Park (formerly Bellwood Quarry), entertains millions at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and is home to a seemingly endless amount of office space, restaurants, bars and shopping.

Now that the Bellyard hotel is open, you can extend your Westside stay to experience all it has to offer. Bellyard’s thoughtfully designed hotel offers spacious rooms and suites, work stations, a fitness center equipped with Pelotons, local art and the bar and lounge, Drawbar.

Bellyard, 1 Interlock Ave NW, 404-806-8333, bellyardhotel.com.

Experience luxury at The St. Regis Atlanta

No hotel emanates luxury more than The St. Regis Atlanta. The Buckhead hotel is well-known for its striking architecture, gorgeous views, and elegant eats at Astor Court and Atlas Buckhead — not to mention private dining in the comfort and convenience of your guest room. Drink up poolside or at The. St. Regis Bar, a terrace that offers comfortable seating alongside a fireplace. And if you aren’t immediately relaxed just walking in the door, check out the spa, with treatments including massages, facials, body treatments and nail services.

Live like a star at Hotel Clermont

Walking in to Hotel Clermont feels a lot like stepping into a Wes Anderson movie. The modern-retro colors and textures pop out in the best way. It’s warm and inviting, especially in the hotel’s lobby bar, at the restaurant Tiny Lou’s and in each of the rooms and suites. See and be seen on the hotel’s roof, which comes complete with a wrap around bar and prime city views. Even the restrooms are chic enough for selfies.

Hotel Clermont, 789 Ponce de Leon Ave, 470-485-0485, hotelclermont.com.

Retreat at the sleek and sophisticated Georgian Terrace

To quote their Instagram, The Georgian Terrace is, “an Atlanta icon that has been thoughtfully refreshed.” The hotel boasts a heart-of-it all location just a moment’s stroll from the Fox Theatre in the middle of Atlanta, as well as delicious food and beverage options, spacious and comfortable rooms, a penthouse-level fitness center and iconic skyline views from the rooftop pool.

The Georgian Terrace, 659 Peachtree St NE, 404-897-1991, thegeorgianterrace.com.
