The Whitley, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Atlanta Buckhead
In December 2017, one of the country’s oldest Ritz-Carlton properties was rebranded as the Whitley, a member of Starwood’s Luxury Collection. While the Ritz was a pillar of Atlanta’s toniest district for more than 30 years, the Whitley carries on its high standard of elegance. Stately guest rooms are currently undergoing a refresh (but still include comforts like high-thread-count sheets and Nespresso machines), and the restaurant and bar have been reimagined as Trade Root, a Mediterranean-meets-Southern lounge featuring house-made pastas, an extensive selection of cheese and charcuterie, and craft sodas and cocktails. Guests can avail themselves of the indoor lap pool, fitness center, and spa, as well as all that Buckhead has to offer. Expect further renovations to ensure this hotel remains an icon well into the next generation.
