    Sun Dial: What a view!

    Westen Peachtree Hotel

    See the tall building in the photo? It is the Westin Peachtree Hotel and at the top of it (72nd floor) is a really nice restaurant that revolves. It makes one revolution in about an hour and gives you a bird's eye view of Atlanta. It is reached by way of a glass elevator which is on the outside of the building for about the last 60 floors. If you don't want to eat there is a free observation area one floor below the restaurant and a bar one floor above. The observation area has some interesting info about Atlanta and both floors give you some indication of what you are seeing in the distance. It is really worth a trip up here.

    Favorite Dish: The meals are really quite good. I have only eaten lunch here but they are reasonably priced (around $10 for an entree). They even have a children's menu which my grandchildren enjoy. They have a cobb salad which is really good. And, very importantly, they have good coffee.

    One of Atlanta's most delightful dining experiences, this rotating restaurant and bar revolves 360 degrees once every hour, offering spectacular panoramic views of the city of Atlanta. A two-minute ride to the top of the hotel in the scenic glass elevators, the Sun Dial View offers some of the best sightseeing available in Atlanta. You have access to four complimentary telescopes to view greater distances of the city, and can also enjoy the history wall. There is also a revolving bar on the next floor.

    Favorite Dish: seafood, steaks

    SunDial: Sun Dial - live at the floor 72

    I was there with my job mates, first to see Atlanta from a high point. then, again to see Atlanta from a high point. Well, a complete turn-around takes about one hour and you can either go to the restaurant or to the caffeteria/bar above (we've been to the cafeteria).

    The mininum amount you have to spend is 8 USD, but with a pie and a caffee that's the eight bucks.

    Favorite Dish: pie

    Sun Dial: Nice all around view

    by musbars Written Oct 29, 2003

    Located on the top ( 47 ) floor of the Peachtree Plaza Hotel. This restaurant rotates 360 degrees , so you can see all of the Atlanta area.
    Very scarry when you go up in the glass elevator on the outside of the building.
    This is the tallest hotel in the world.

    Sun-Dial @ Peachtree Westin!: Sun-Dial @ Peachtree Westin!

    by cinay Written Aug 25, 2002

    This place is a bit expensive. It is extremely romantic(at night), perfect for dates. But its lounge is so-so, compare to Westins in LA or Phenix.

    Favorite Dish: Meal: Veal Chop or Salmon are awsome!!! Mixed drinks: Peachmango is good, pina colada is so-so.
    Appetizers $15-$25; Meal's price ranges from $25-$50; Drinks $12-$25

    Sun Dial: The highlight of Atlanta!

    This is a very nice upscale restaurant and bar located inside The Westin Peachtree Plaza downtown Atlanta, Ga. The floor revolves around the city, you can see the surrounding suburbs from your seat as you sit 73 floors up in the sky. You can watch the sun set.
    I was really surprised this place wasn't as formal as I thought it would be, there are some people that come dressed from there formal occasion and there are a lot of people who come dressed in nice jeans and a t-shirt. It still has enough ambiance to make you feel like you've been somewhere special. So no one feels out of place or under dressed. This place is very relaxing.
    A wonderful place to meet up with friends and for families alike.
    I've been here a few times and the floor wasn't revolving at all. It's still nice just a little disappointing. I think the floor has been remodeled so it should be working all the time now.

    Favorite Dish: My favorites are the White Chocolate Mudslide, and the crab cake sliders with goat cheese.
    Oh the mudslide comes in a souvenir glass to keep forever. I'll be collecting a whole set. Lol
    This place was in a Burt Reynolds movie called Sharkey's Machine. Cool huh?

    Sun Dial restaurant

    I had the chance to attend a cocktail party at the Sun Dial revolving restaurant located on top of the Westin Hotel. It is a nice place to have dinner with great views of the city.
