The W Atlanta Midtown hotel hosted my accommodations for the weekend. All thoughts on the hotel are completely my own and may not reflect the opinions of the hotel or anyone else. If you are keeping up with me on my social channels, I spent a sloshy week in Atlanta, Georgia for the Social Influencers Travel Summit (#SITSum). Hotlanta was more like slosh-lanta. Leave it up to me to be in Atlanta during one of their stormiest weeks of the year. Even with the rain and 50 degree weather, I was still able to explore the city and all of its history. Atlanta was gorgeous, filled with a huge art scene, food tours and American History.
The W Atlanta Midtown hotel is located in Midtown Atlanta, the second largest business district in Atlanta. The art and cultural influence in Midtown Atlanta is a key attraction. If you don’t plan to rent a car for your travels in Atlanta, Midtown is centralized within walking distance to Piedmont Park, Atlanta Botanical Gardens, the High Museum and much more. If you are looking to head to the Georgia aquarium or off to the SkyView gondola, a Uber ride is efficient and about a ten minute ride.
W Atlanta Midtown Hotel Review
The W Atlanta Midtown hotel is fun and inviting the minute you step foot inside. The ambiance is chic and the adult like atmosphere is romantic. There weren’t many children at the hotel during my stay, I witnessed a wedding party, lots of boys weekend groups and an after work style atmosphere in the lobby/bar area. Is this a hotel that seems geared at children, not in my opinion. The hotel screams romantic weekend or even a weekend away with the girls. The lobby connects with the “Living Room” a music infused large lounge with flowing cocktails, board games and wireless High Speed Internet.
Use your room card key to gain access to the elevator up to your room. The hallway of the twenty-first floor was occasionally loud on Friday and Saturday night. I could hear guests returning to their room after a night out. This is definitely a party town, reminiscent of my last stay in Las Vegas.
The room was clean, inviting and offered a large amount of space. To work, relax and rest. I could have definitely brought along my husband and son.
I’m a sucker for a gorgeous view and the W Midtown Atlanta room on the twenty-first floor did not disappoint. The skyscrapers and city life down below, was perfect for people watching. That inviting neighborhood feel is alive and well in Midtown Atlanta. Runners, dog walkers, families and tourists flowed through the streets. The blackout curtains are an added feature I appreciated, even with a weekend of clouds and rain.
There was no coffee maker in the room, but don’t fret like I did, the lobby has coffee and teas. Also on my first morning there I stumbled upon warm biscuits and honey. I don’t know if this is an everyday thing, so you might want to ask at check-in, but I was lucky enough to grab a chamomile mint tea and a biscuit with honey on Friday morning.
The W Atlanta Midtown also offers a fantastic restaurant, Trace. The southern style restaurant is filled with a reimagined farm to table menu. It’s an inviting restaurant with delicious food. Try the crab cakes, fried chicken biscuit and flourless chocolate cake. Simply devine!
Would I stay at the W Atlanta Midtown Hotel again?
Wifi was free and actually worked. The toiletries were from Bliss beauty products (they have a spa inside the W) this was a huge plus as I love this upscale beauty brand. I had great room service, my bed was even turned down on my last night. I was able to relax in the ultra comfy bed and pillows each night. The shower was a spa-like rainfall, which I loved.
I will be sharing my favorite things to do in Atlanta and a few other tidbits from my weekend this weekend, so stay tuned.
