The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta [Master Thread]

Flew into Atlanta the other day and had my TA book the Ritz. Surprised when the cab took me downtown. I have always stayed at the Buckhead one. Apparently the owner of the hotel and Ritz corporate had a disagreement and the owners withdrew their contract with the Ritz (now a Whitney). The good news is that Marriott is building a new one in Buckhead. Guess it will be the 4S or MO next time but I love the Ritz Club Level

You might consider the StR in Buckhead--or the Whitley. The MO is dated and dreadful.

The FS is in north downtown. There is a RC in south downtown, too.

I would have sworn there was a 4s in Buckhead. Kind of hidden. But I don't see it on the web anymore

I recall a RC in the downtown area, roughly down the street a couple blocks from the Westin (but not in the direction of either the Marriott/Sheraton or the Omni/Olympic Park, maybe a decade ago.

Didn't the other one have Buckhead in its name?

That deflagged a year or so ago and now is the Whitley, Luxury Collection.

I stayed at the Whitley recently and am slated to go again this coming week. I liked it a lot. The Ritz downtown is fine, albeit not updated, but I wouldn't go out of my way to stay there unless I was working nearby.
