    The Whitley began its existence as Atlanta's iconic Ritz-Carlton Buckhead hotel, with Marriott's Luxury Collection brand taking over from the Ritz in 2017 and renovating the property. The gorgeous 30,000-square-foot event space is still a popular site for weddings and galas, and the indoor saline pool offers amazing views of Atlanta's skyline, as do many rooms. The lobby creates an Old World-style grand entrance with dark woods, marble floors and large oil paintings, but the rooms are more modern and are filled with light. An entire floor is dedicated to pampering, with body treatments, facials, body scrubs and salon services available.

Relax in the 40,000-square-foot Pool Piazza, enjoy a facial at Remede Spa or treat yourself to an authentic afternoon tea at Astor Court, one of the hotel's restaurants.
