I recently had the chance to visit Atlanta which I really always want to call Hotlanta! But I’m told by the locals to stop doing that. Seriously, they said, stop.
I got the chance to stay at the Loews Hotel which is an amazing combo of a cool, luxury hotel but still manages to be completely family friendly. I absolutely adored it (and so will you).
It’s right in the middle of midtown, which means it’s close to Piedmont Park (Atlanta’s smaller version of New York City’s Central Park), the High Museum of Art, the Fox Theatre, the Georgia Aquarium and more.
The lobby is very sleek and contemporary.
It has a fabulous bar area that was busy but not overcrowded when I was there on a Friday night.
I also had the chance to dine at the hotel’s restaurant, Saltwood Charcuterie & Bar.
I’m still not sure what “charcuterie” means but at this point, I’m assuming “delicious.” The menu focuses on salted, cured meats with a rustic presentation.
The Shrimp and Grits were very yummy and the Buttermilk Fried Chicken was divine (I mean, how can you go wrong when you add “buttermilk” and “fried” to chicken.) And the Brown Butter Apple Cake was something I’ll be thinking about for a long time.
And if you’re expecting some dinky hotel gym, be prepared to be wowed. Because the fitness center was big, clean and way nicer than the gym I go to in my neighborhood.
The fitness centers offers lots of classes including Barre, Cardio, Boot Camp, Yoga and HIIT workouts. So basically, I’m telling you to pack your gym shoes.
You can also spend time at the Exhale Spa which offers everything from facials to massages to waxing to healing. So definitely stop in and exhale.
During your stay, I strongly recommend you uber or drive on over to the Ponce City Market (just a couple miles away).
This place has a super cool industrial vibe with lots of great food options, shops and even an art gallery.
And one of my most favorite moments of trip. Seeing this girl…
That’s my wonderful friend Lanie who even lets me sometimes call her city “Hotlanta!” (Okay, I promise I’ll really stop.)
