Housed in an iconic building designed by celebrated American architect Robert A.M. Stern, Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta soars 42 stories above the Atlanta skyline and offers sophisticated, residential elegance in its 127 spacious rooms and suites.
The sought-after Buckhead location is steps away from the region’s top dining, designer boutiques and cultural attractions; both Phipps Plaza and Lenox Square are within walking distance and offer 5-Star Shopping. The hotel is 35 minutes from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and 10 minutes from the DeKalb-Peachtree Airport, which accommodates private aircraft.

Spa Treatment Menu ** I had the “Peaches & Cream” treatment, which is an indulgent journey that will melt away muscle tension while restoring the body’s balance. A skin softening apricot kernel exfoliation prepares the skin for a comforting massage using warm cream and peach oil. The treatment ends with a blissful red clay scalp massage to soothe all the stress away. What could be better? It was amazing!
The state-of-the-art fitness center offers a range of exercise equipment including treadmills, seated bikes, free weights and weight machines.

I had the most amazing stay at the Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta. I was in town visiting for a blog shoot and Spring Fashion Show at Jeffrey NY/Atlanta. From the moment you arrive,it is clear that attention-to-detail and unparalleled service are top priorities. Every staff member I met was so helpful and friendly! Not only is the hotel beautiful, but it is filled with staff members who go above & beyond for their guests.
Also, I want to brag on my spa experience…I really needed a good exfoliation and massage! This time of year my skin is so dry from the winter and the Peaches & Cream Treatment was just what I needed to get ready for spring! Take time to treat yourself to one of their spa treatments so you can feel gorgeous and renewed. The Spa was Awarded Best Spa Day in Atlanta magazine’s annual Best of Atlanta Awards,awarded Atlanta Magazine, 2014.
The hotel’s premiere location is perfect for me, because so much of my time spent in Atlanta on fashion shoots revolves around picking up retail merchandise. The hotel is centrally located in Buckhead and close to all of the major shopping centers such as Phipps Plaza, Lenox Square, and Shops Around Lenox (Lululemon, Kendra Scott, Tootsies, Fab’rik, and Luna). Furthermore, there are hundreds of fabulous restaurants right around the Buckhead area to choose from.
I highly recommend the Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta based on the all-around “5-Star” location, atmosphere, room comfort and design, excellent dining, and service.
