Good For Solo
the westin peachtree plaza is located in the heart of downtown atlanta. the peachtree plaza is a very good high rise business class hotel. this property is owned by starwood so you can expect all of the amenities of this first class chain. i have stayed at the peachtree plaza several times and was always pleased with the room and service. expensive.
Heart of Downtown's Hotel
When you are looking for a hotel in Atlanta, there are many things you may want to consider. Ultimately, the Westin Peachtree has plenty of pros, but also a couple cons. First and foremost, this is a beautiful hotel with gorgeous views from just about every room (I have stayed in at least 4 rooms). It is also ultra convenient for people with business downtown, or any one using the Atlanta Public Transportation. On the other hand though, if you are staying downtown for the social aspect of Atlanta, you are in the wrong place. This downtown area was a ghost town the four times I stayed here.
The hotel itself is a high end property with the Heavenly bed, Heavenly shower, and all the amenities of a high end hotel, including a great fitness center, concierge and meeting rooms.
Overall, location is everything here. If you are doing business downtown, stay here. If you are looking for night life and don't want to drive afterward, head to midtown or Buckhead.
What a view!
This 72-floors hotel is a sort of legend in Atlanta; you cannot go to Atlanta without going there, at least to go up to the panoramic restaurant. We stayed in the hotel just one night; perhaps it's too short to evaluate all facilities offered by the staff. Gym and swimming pool are very lovely, breakfast very rich and I was really well impressed by the kindness of the reception-staff. Although the hotel is very big, you don't feel as just a number. Perhaps the room was not so big as I expected it to be, but anyway I liked it.
Unique Quality: Breathtaking views thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows
Tallest Hotel in Atlanta
A 73 story metallic cylinder with a revolving restaurant on the top floor. A classy hotel and a very romantic place to have supper as the Sun sets. It is also convenient for the Georgia Dome, Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, and all of downtown.
Directions: Downtown Area a few blocks NE of Centennial Park
Westin Peachtree Plaza
The Peachtree Plaza is my favorite place to have dinner because it overlooks all of ATL The restaurant is on the 80th floor and rotates. The food was pricey and dissappointing but the service was great and the view is incredible . It is best to go up before sunset and watch as the sun sets and the city lights come alive. Don't let your wife or girlfreind set her purse down on the side of the table next to the window or it will rotate away from you. This is a must see when visiting Atlanta.
Unique Quality: Fantastic veiw of Atlanta from the restaurant or the rooms.We stayed on the 65th floor for $140.00
Can't beat the view
Some areas of the hotel may look a little run down (the carpet in the lobby) but once you check into your room, you'll see what all the fuss is about. Their beds are called Heavenly Beds, and they are. Once you lie down, you won't want to get back up. The other cool thing is one whole wall is a huge plate glass window looking out over the city. It's really beautiful at night. Make sure to hit them up when they're running a special otherwise it can be pricey.

Unique Quality: Great view of Atlanta, feather beds, and a rotating resturant on the 72nd floor.
Can't beat the view - inside or out
First let me start this review with bias. I am a Starwood Preferred Guest Gold member. I am an owner of a Starwood Vacation Property. I believe that above all else you can't stay in better hotels or resorts than those owned and operated by the Sheraton group. I'm sure you can get better accomodations but I don't look any further that my local Sheraton, Westin or W when traveling. There are no surprises - I expect clean, comfortable rooms, a friendly, helpful staff, good food and close proximity to whatever it is I'm there in that city to see. Period. And I'm not trying to spend an arm and a leg to get all this.
With that said - The Westin Peachtree Plaza is a dime piece of a hotel right in the middle of downtown Atlanta. This hotel is an extremely tall cylinder with rooms facing out with huge floor to ceiling unobstructed views of the city. Absolutely Breathtaking.
Unique Quality: And if you want your breathtaken again go to the top of the hotel to the Sundial resturant to dine. It revolves.
Directions: Downtown - near the Convention Center and right off Peachtree. If you're visiting you'll soon learn that Peachtree is a straightshot that takes you past any and everything of importance.
The Westin Peachtree Plaza
The Westin Peachtree is a landmark hotel in downtown Atlanta. It has 73 floors and is the tallest hotel in the western hemisphere. At least, that's what all the guidebooks say. Make a note of that fact as it could prove useful someday.
I've stayed here a couple of times and found it to be convenient for exploring downtown. The hotel itself is nice and has all the typical Westin amenities, i.e., great bed, great shower and friendly service. There's also a great health club on one of the lower levels and the revolving lounge on top is a nice place to go for a drink or to have something to eat. There is a Sunday brunch up here which is pretty popular, but I've never been so I can't say much about it.
Its a convention hotel and, with 70 plus floors, it does get pretty crowded. Having a room on a high floor is a perk in the sense that you can see all of Atlanta from your windows, but it can be an inconvenience if you're leaving on Sunday morning and trying to catch a flight as you're likely to have to wait for an elevator.
The hotel's listed prices are fairly steep and usually in the $150 to $200 range, but there is almost always a special rate which can be booked.
Unique Quality: The Westin towers over all other downtown buildings and is easy to spot. The revolving lounge on the top floor and the elevator that takes you up there are not exactly unique as many cities have a similar get-up, but they are still pretty nice.
Top view of Atlanta
One of the top end hotels in Atlanta downtown, one of the Starwood/Sheraton members.
The room is large with a simple and decent deco: white linens, black and white photos (my favorite) all over the hotel including in the bed room and bath room, Mahogony color funiture, equipped with internet access.
The wall right in front of the bed is a whole piece of glass through which one can have a grand view of the Olympic Park and CNN etc below (my room was on the 57th). I was sitting in the bed and watching the beautiful sunset for two hours (No, sun does not set in one second!).
The bathroom is simple but adequate. The room has a robe and safe, plus a minibar that I never use. The carpets are rather old and stained, so as the comtemperary style half-moon shape couch. But it did not bother me enjoying the view of the city.
Concierge has a thick book of info of local restaurants and their menu, so make your choice.
Unique Quality: It seems to constantly have many conferences going on everyday (the reason why I was here this time).
The unique thing is that it has a rotating restaurant on its 72nd floor (not open to general public unless either you are a customer of the restaurant or a hotel guest). Taking the clear cylindar elevator from the 5th floor, in 90 seconds, you will be on top of the Atlanta for a panoramic view. The restaurant rotates every 60 minutes/round, the bar, 35 minutes. Telescopes are provided for further details.
The meeting chartered the hotel for the lunches. The food was healthy and of fine quality.
Directions: Take MARTA northbound train to Peachtree Center station ($1.75), out of Harris St exit, you will not miss it. It is at the southwest corner of International and Peachtree St (never forget Atlanta has 42 roads named with Peachtree, ave, dr, st, pl etc)
Starting at $89
Unique Quality: Atlanta's landmark hotel stands proudly in the city skyline, welcoming visitors from around the world with hospitality at its finest. The West Peachtree Plaza: where you can do and see everything Atlanta has to offer.

You should stay at the Peachtree Hotel. From what I remember, it's a black building that's shapped like a slice of pie.
Unique Quality: It's shaped like a piece of pie. When I was there, some man was dressed as a lobster and was handing out flyers outside the building. I think it was for a restaurant or he was just some kind of lobster activist.

Can you see Stone Mountain from Atlanta?
I had a very vivid dream last night that I was up on some steps like the Capitol Dome in Atlanta, and I could see Stone Mountain up high behind the capitol in the distance. I've never been to the Capitol Dome or to Stone Mountain (just a Braves game) so I don't know why I dreamed this. But it was so vivid, I looked off behind the Capitol and I could see Stone Mountain and some big white Antebellum looking home in the distance.
I know it doesn't exist exactly like this, but I'm just curious now if it is possible to see Stone Mountain from anywhere in Atlanta.
RE: RE: Can you see Stone Mountain from Atlanta?
You don't really have to be stoned, but you do have to be high. I have seen Stone Mtn from the top of the Peachtree Plaza Hotel, but you cannot see any details from there (it is about 15 miles away). The great thing about dreams is that anything is possible.
RE: Can you see Stone Mountain from Atlanta?
You can also see Stone Mountain from Sandy Springs/Dunwoody. If you're southbound on Abernathy at Mt Vernon (right atop the Sandy Springs MARTA station) and you look ahead and a bit to the left.... on a haze-less day, you can see Stone Mountain just to the left of the Ravinia office complex.
