“Atlanta only has a handful of true five-star experiences, and the St. Regis is one of them. For a city hotel, guest rooms are massive, starting at 440 sq. ft., with suites ranging from 680 sq. ft. to the Empire Suite’s spacious 2,800 sq. ft.”

“The Glenn Hotel is in a renovated 1920s building downtown that has gossamer curtains. The rooftop bar and restaurant have a gimmick, apparently attractive to the rich and famous, where you can eat on a bed, but beware the snobby doormen and minimum spending requirements.”

Atlanta is the capital of the state of Georgia in the United States. It is the cultural and economic center of the Atlanta metropolitan area as well as being the most populous municipality of the state of Georgia.
The city is popular for being a major air transportation hub, particularly the Hartsfield – Jackson Atlanta International Airport being the world’s busiest airport by passenger traffic since 1998. Atlanta is ranked the 18th largest city in terms of gross domestic product as well as being the 7th largest in the United States.
Atlanta is uniquely dubbed the “the city in a forest” as a result of a topographic feature that includes rolling hills and dense tree coverage. This distinct topography makes the city even more attractive to visitors.
The city is home to the Atlanta Dogwood Festival which is an annual arts and crafts festival held one weekend during early April, a unique time when the native dogwoods in the city are in bloom.
Atlanta has been described by the National Geographic as a “Place of a Lifetime” due to the 36% tree coverage of the city. This is the highest in the whole of the United States’ major cities.
