Happy Travel Tuesday! Today I want to focus on my beautiful city, Atlanta. I have a lot of friends who pass through and are always asking where to stay. With a city as large as Atlanta, it can sometimes be overwhelming to find the perfect place. Well I have just the place that will surpass all your expectations, the Ritz Carlton Atlanta.
When you think of the Ritz Carlton, what comes to mind? Is it luxury? Leisure? Those are accurate descriptions of the Ritz Carlton but what should immediately come to your mind is outstanding customer service. When it comes to making their guest feel welcomed and right at home, the Ritz Carlton surpasses any other hotel.
A few weeks ago my husband and I had the pleasure of having a little staycation at the Ritz Carlton Atlanta. There is something exciting about staying at a hotel in your hometown because you automatically feel like you are on vacation! We were greeted by the high energy of downtown and a glass of champagne! We stayed in the Club Lounge, which made our experience exceptional. The staff had even gone the extra mile and welcomed us with chocolate covered strawberries and a late happy birthday message in chocolate! Talk about a wonderful surprise.
The Club Lounge
On The Ritz-Carlton Club® Level, guests enjoy access to everything in a space that feels worlds away. Here, service reaches a new level, with a dedicated concierge and personalized amenities. In the exclusive Club Lounge, discover a quiet space for working, meeting or relaxing, complimentary culinary presentations throughout the day, special events and remarkable décor that is often complemented by an incredible view. The focal point of each Club Level is the luxurious Club Lounge, a dedicated space for guests to relax, enjoy an evening cordial or simply read a book.
We loved the Club Lounge because it was a very inviting and fun place to hangout. We could run in and grab a drink, snack or treat whenever we wanted. If you follow me on snapchat you also saw how much I loved the wine machine! The breakfast was especially delicious- lox and bagels, fresh fruit, bacon, oatmeals- the list goes on!
The Lumen Bar
Located in the lobby of hotel, the Lumen Bar serves some of the best drinks in Atlanta. Our talented bartender, Diego, showed us how to make a couple of unique and tasty drinks. My ultimate favorite was the Chihuly Crystal Rose, which was made with gin, fresh cucumber, rose water, syrup, and fresh sour mix. He taught us that the key to making the perfect drink is using fresh ingredients. Even the sour mix was squeezed from fresh limes earlier that day! Diego also showed us how to properly add egg whites to any drink- a true game changer in my opinion! The Lumen bar also offers small plates for sharing and live music Mondays through Saturdays featuring jazz, classical guitar and Peruvian flute.
The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta is downtown Atlanta’s premier business address and a luxurious oasis in the heart of the city. Awe-inspiring interiors create an unequaled environment for work and play.
