If your dream vacation involves being waited on hand and foot, the St. Regis Atlanta should be at the top of your list. All guests have access to the butler desk, which can fulfill requests both big and small, while suites come with a St. Regis butler—someone who will provide drink service, unpack your suitcase, press your clothes, shine your shoes, and deliver a morning newspaper. In the summer, pool butlers mist guests with Evian and deliver frozen fruit skewers, coconut water, and smoothie samplers.
The details are also in the decor and the amenities, from Italian marble bathrooms and original artwork to feather pillows and iPod docks in all the rooms. But your luxurious experience doesn’t end at the property. The St. Regis is the only hotel that’s just a five-minute walk to Buckhead Atlanta, a recently opened upscale shopping center. Check out the iconic red-soled heels at Christian Louboutin, try on Warby Parker’s trendy frames, or splurge on a silk Hermès scarf. And if you need help hauling your spoils to your room, remember there’s a butler waiting just around the corner.

The hotel is located just a stone’s throw from some of Buckhead’s best shopping and cultural destinations. Less than a block away, the opulent Buckhead Atlanta mall is home to top international designer boutiques. The historic Buckhead Theatre, a concert venue that hosts Southern and international stars, and the Atlanta History Center are also a short walk from the property. Find a huge variety of juices, milks, and elixirs at Organic Juice and Junk. For a memorable dining experience, get a table at King + Duke, where seasonal dishes are cooked in an open hearth and named after characters in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
