Modern luxury meets old-school Southern hospitality at the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta. Amenities such as the Four Seasons signature marble bathroom with a deep tub, separate shower, and L’Occitane products are coupled with sweeping views of Midtown in most rooms. With its emphasis on individualized service, the hotel also provides free overnight shoe shines and small, family-friendly touches such as child-sized robes and a mini check-in desk. Sponge letters will even be placed around a bathtub to spell out children’s names, and chocolate chip cookie delivery before bedtime ends the day on a sweet note. Fitness enthusiasts can check out a yoga package with a mat, block, and instructional DVD from the spa. During warmer months, rooftop yoga classes are available for an additional fee.
Locavores will want to dine at Park 75, where seasonal ingredients shine in contemporary dishes. From tomatoes and peppers to lemon verbena and edible flowers, much of the restaurant’s produce is pulled straight from the hotel’s terrace garden. For the full foodie experience, reserve a tasting dinner, which will be prepared based on your preferences and includes wine pairings.

Midtown is a bustling business district and cultural center just north of downtown Atlanta. By day go shopping along the 14-block Midtown Mile and then wander through the Museum of Design Atlanta. To escape the concrete jungle, you can visit Piedmont Park, a 185-acre urban refuge with bocce courts, playgrounds, and a seasonal green market, or the nearby Atlanta Botanical Garden, where its Southern Seasons Garden blooms year-round. By night grab a bite at the acclaimed South City Kitchen, known for its house-cured meats, and catch a performance by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
