When the Georgian Terrace opened in 1911, it was the ultimate grand Southern hotel, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, opulent chandeliers, and marble columns. The hotel became a port of call when the famous, including President Calvin Coolidge, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Walt Disney, came to Atlanta. It even hosted the premiere of Gone with the Wind in 1939, and its ballroom has hosted performances by the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, and Patti Smith. Film crews have also been drawn to the well-appointed hotel, which has served as a set for some major productions, including The Change-Up with Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman.
Today, the Georgian Terrace still exudes class and now counts itself among Atlanta’s historic landmarks. Recently renovated rooms are outfitted with pillow-top mattresses, eco-friendly toiletries, and free Wi-Fi. While the neighborhood around the hotel has plenty to offer, like the acclaimed Fox Theatre, you could feasibly never leave the property thanks to its rooftop pool, upscale restaurant and bar, and speakeasy-style lounge.
