Westin Peachtree Plaza
A quintessential New South luxury hotel, the Westin Peachtree Plaza, 1 mile from the Georgia Dome, remains the signature of Atlanta’s downtown skyline.
All the features of a convention center area hotel abound. A highly functional business center complete with fax machine, photocopier, and cell phone rental exists. The eleventh floor houses the pool, with its retractable roof. For entertainment, Underground Atlanta, the historic home of the original downtown, sits only 0.45 miles away. CNN studios, at a distance of 1 mile, offers tours daily.
This is a very business and event oriented hotel. Groups hold conventions here on a seemingly continuous basis. During college football season, fans of the Southeastern Conference create a spirited atmosphere. Eating a meal, or sipping a drink, at the Sun Dial Restaurant on the top floor, is a must. The restaurant rotates in a slow, almost imperceptible circle. Visitors, and locals, flock to this hotel for meetings, dinners and conferences.
There are traditional, deluxe, and suite rooms. Regardless of room type, guests enjoy breathtaking views of the city because of the circular shape of the hotel. All rooms have cable television, in-room movies, high-speed internet access (fee), work desk, and safe. Room service is available 24-hours a day.
Besides the Sun Dial, diners can enjoy coffee at the lobby Starbucks. The Lobby Bar has appetizers. Peachtree Center Mall, adjacent to the hotel, has over thirty eateries, including Hard Rock Café, Benihana, Dairy Queen and Chick-Fil-A.
