Located in one of Atlanta’s most walkable neighborhoods, Midtown, the Loews Atlanta Hotel opened in 2010 as the brand’s first property in Georgia. Today, the sleek, 26-story luxury hotel lends a contemporary silhouette to the city's skyline. After a recent multi-million dollar refresh, the hotel continues to offer guests an array of amenities with completely modern conveniences. It’s steps away from the popular, sprawling Piedmont Park (which is home to the Atlanta Botanical Garden) and within walking distance of the High Museum of Art, The Woodruff Arts Center, and an array of Fortune 500 companies. With 414 rooms and 44 suites, this is a bustling, busy hotel in the heart of Atlanta where guests can easily fill their time with visits to nearby restaurants and cultural attractions. 

What You Need to Know

The Look

It's All in the Details

Loews has done a commendable job of designing rooms that feel spacious and luxurious, but you’ll remember the city views before you’ll remember the décor. (The best feature here are the floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal sweeping city views.) Guest rooms are equipped with two flat-screen TVs and feature a warm and neutral color palette, as well as 300-thread count Egyptian cotton linens. The ring-spun cotton bath towels aren’t too shabby, either. Travelers who need to get things done will love the oversized desks.

The Vibe

Yes, the hotel has that shiny, just-renovated vibe, but it’s the sharp, professional, and friendly staff that make the property stand out. The food is great, the drinks are refreshing, and the rooms are well-designed and comfortable. Wedding parties, families, and business travelers alike all come for the easy access to Atlanta’s top dining and cultural attractions. The open, airy lobby is always buzzing with an interesting mix of tourists and locals, many of who come to enjoy the popular Saltwood bar (which is consistently voted one of the city’s top hotel bars), located adjacent to the lobby.

Loews works hard to incorporate local food into each property, and Loews Atlanta is no exception. Here, you'll find pasture-raised beef and pork from a local Georgia farm, which pair perfectly with local brews. There's Orpheus (a local brewery), AWS Distillery, and Woodsman and Wife, a husband-and-wife team of artisan cheesemakers. 

Who Will Love It

Large groups, business travelers, and families will appreciate the depth and range of amenities and nearby offerings here.

Who Might Not

This is a big high-energy hotel, which may not be the best destination for a quiet romantic weekend.

Best Amenity

The hotel’s Exhale Spa & Fitness Center's Core Fusion and yoga classes are amazing. It's also home to the only hammam detox chamber and rain shower. Additionally, guests receive complimentary access to the fitness center, dry saunas, steam rooms, and hammam — as well as $25 credit to use towards services of $100 or more.

Money Matters

What’s Included

Complimentary wifi in guest rooms and public spaces; access to the fitness center (mentioned above); and free chauffeured car service in a 2019 Cadillac Escalade anywhere within a two-mile radius (based on availability at the time of request). There's also a 24-hour business center available for use. Lifestyle suites come complete with Peloton bikes.  

Fees and Extra Costs You Should Know About

Valet parking is available for $40 per night; self-parking is $26 per day. You can bring along your pet for a one-time fee of $75. 

How to Get a Deal

The hotel’s "Suite Deal" package includes suite accommodations along with a $50 per night food and beverage credit (based on a maximum of seven nights) and complimentary high-speed wifi. Visit the offers tab for more deals and promotions. 

Getting There

In the Neighborhood

Located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, the property is within walking distance to some of the most popular destinations in the city, including the Atlanta Beltline Trail and the Alliance Theatre. Other popular attractions such as Ponce City Market, Krog Street Market, and Mercedes-Benz Stadium are a short car ride away.

Nearest Airport

Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is about a half-hour away by car. Traffic can be an issue at peak hours, so consider taking the MARTA rail (Atlanta's public transportation system), which is about two blocks from the hotel.

Nearest Public Transit

The Midtown MARTA Station is just two blocks away.

The Bottom Line

For a big city adventure tucked into the cultural heart of Atlanta, this property delivers on a slew of amenities for everyone from business travelers to pet-loving families.
