There are four W Hotels in Atlanta—more than any other city except New York City—all of which convey the signature ‘wow.’ But only the downtown location was built from scratch.

Opened in 2009, W Atlanta Downtown mixes sophisticated business with cozy pleasure in each of its 237 guestrooms. Feel fabulous whether resting on a pillow-top mattress, swimming in the zero-edge pool, sweating in the fitness center, getting a treatment at the signature Bliss spa, or rubbing elbows with fellow guests in any one of the three on-site bars. Who knows, maybe you’ll meet someone who arrived via private helicopter landed on the rooftop helipad.
W Atlanta Downtown
45 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd.
Atlanta, GA 30308
- Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in the lobby and fourth floor meeting rooms; the charge for in-room access starts at $12.99.
- Bathtubs are available in some rooms. The zero-edge pool offers spectacular skyline views.
- Coffee makers can be delivered to guestrooms upon request. Complimentary coffee is served in the lobby each morning plus afternoon beverage offerings change seasonally (one tasty summer option is peach lemonade). Three on-site bars include Drinkshop from New York-based master mixologist Sasha Petraske, the W Living Room bar and Wetbar.
- The on-site BLT Steak by celebrated chef and restaurateur Laurent Tourondel ranks among Atlanta’s top dining options. Chef Cyrille Holota brings an impressive level of refinement to the menu.
- Valet parking costs $30 per night or park your own car in a public lot across the street for less.
- There is no airport shuttle service; however, MARTA trains run from the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to Downtown. It would be a bit of a walk from the station to the hotel, however, so if you prefer terminal to door transport, hire a cab.
- Children are permitted, but this hotel is more popular with business travelers and vacationing adults than with families.
- Rates from $199 a night.
