Atlanta is home to many historic hotels, inns, and bed-and-breakfasts. However, none has stood the test of time to be referred to as the Grand Dame of Atlanta hotels like the Georgian Terrace. Over the years, the hotel has played host to celebrities and dignitaries alike. Today, she still stands tall and proud as a hotel fit for royalty, combining classic time period luxury with modern amenities.
A hotel for the see and be seen
The Georgian Terrace opened for business in October of 1911 and currently sits on the National Register of Historic Places. Guests are greeted by crystal chandeliers and white marble columns much like the famous guests of its past, which included President Calvin Coolidge, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Walt Disney. Beyond just being a place for celebrities to rest their heads, the Georgian Terrace was also home to the premiere gala of Gone with the Wind; the Electric Ballroom concert series featuring Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, and Fleetwood Mac; and Arthur Murray’s original dance studio. It’s quite fitting that the hotel is located across the street from famed Fox Theatre.
Rooms fit for a celebrity
Much like the rest of the hotel, there is nothing ordinary about the rooms at the Georgian Terrace. Sure, there are the standard amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi, flat screen HDTVs, and mini-fridges. The Georgian Terrace ups their game though with 300-thread-count cotton bedding, eco-friendly toiletries, and floor-to-ceiling windows drawing in natural light and views of midtown Atlanta. Room options range from small standards to suites with separate sitting rooms to suites with kitchens and dining rooms. Extended stay options are available.
As if guests didn’t feel spoiled enough with the rooms, the grand lavishes expand to other hotel amenities, starting with the concierge. Throughout the years, the hotel has developed relationships with some of Atlanta’s best restaurants, which the concierge helps guests gain exclusive reservations to. Additional items the concierge can help with include grocery shopping, even tickets, and babysitting services. One of guests’ favorite features of the hotel is the rooftop pool and fitness center. The perch allows for that extra level of relaxation. There is also a car rental service on site.
Exclusive dining options
Georgian Terrace offers guests three different dining and drink options. Livingston Restaurant is the main restaurant where breakfast lunch and dinner are served. The menu features creatively innovative American options in a sleekly modern restaurant. Edgar’s Proof and Provision is the hotel bar. The speakeasy appointed watering hole offers craft cocktails and light snacks. Lastly, Buffalo Bayou is the Georgian Terrace’s in-house coffee shop offering quick grab-and-go food options for enjoyment in your room, office, or on the terrace.
The choice when it comes to location
Everything one could possible need in terms of location is at the Georgian Terrace’s footsteps. The convenient proximity to the Fox Theatre is what helped make the Georgian Terrace what it is today. The neighborhood is also sprite with some of Atlanta’ best shopping, restaurant, and nightlife activities. Several MARTA stations are nearby for those wanting to explore outside the neighborhood.
