The holiday season is perfect to enjoy a romantic getaway. Whether you want to start you new life together or simply reconnect away from all the hustle and bustle of the season, we have a few suggestions to turn the holiday season into one of love and romance.
Here are some of our favorite romantic getaways in Atlanta:
Located in the heart of Buckhead, the Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead offers unforgettable luxury and irresistible Southern charm with marble bathrooms, beautiful skyline views and private gardens for those quiet moments. The hotel also has a 15,000-square-foot spa with 13 treatment rooms (couples massage, anyone) as well as a yoga studio, sauna and steam room. Although the hotel has sensational restaurants, it also has 24 hour room service for when you need champagne and strawberries.
The Candler Hotel Atlanta, Curio Collection by Hilton is long on romance. This historic structure recently opened. The 17-story hotel was the city’s first skyscraper and was built in 1906 by Coca-Cola magnate Asa Griggs Candler. The Beaux-Art details just add to the luxury and special feel. The 265 guest rooms and suites have amenities such as flat screen-TVs and mini-refrigerators and premium bedding. The restaurant, By George, is opened throughout the day and is spearheaded by two-time James Beard Award-winning Chef Hugh Acheson. The classic cuisine, which skews towards traditional French, has an extensive wine program and craft cocktails.
Want to spend an evening in one of Atlanta’s most romantic restaurants? Well, that would be Nikolai’s Roof at the Hilton Atlanta. Nikolai’s Roof is an Atlanta institution thanks to its masterful prepared French cuisine with a nod toward its Russian name (try the caviar and vodka flights), with an impeccably trained staff who knows when to pour the wine and when to let the diners be alone. Adding to the romance is the stunning views of Atlanta’s skylines.
The Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel & Conference Center is a grand structure with beautiful gardens and luxurious guest rooms that will remind you of the iconic hotels found on St. Simons. The hotel is set on the City Club Marietta Golf Course, a top public course, and let’s face it, golfing is possible even in the winter. Cozy up at the Pub and relax in its overstuffed leather chairs and maybe play a game of pool. Experience the best of the “New South” cuisine in Hamilton’s Restaurant that overlooks the golf course.
Want a romantic getaway that will make you feel as if you are far away, but are actually close to the city? Well, then book a room at the Peachtree City Atlanta Hotel & Conference Center. Located just 30 minutes from downtown Atlanta, this hotel offers all the resort-style amenities that will help you relax and enjoy each other’s company. Although it will be a bit cold for the outdoor pool, couples may enjoy a competitive game of racquetball or sit by the outdoor fire pits for quiet conversations under the stars.
Book at stay at the Embassy Suites Atlanta Centennial Olympic Park or the Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Downtown and enjoy the best the city has to offer during the holidays. Both hotels ring Centennial Olympic Park, which is winter wonderland with glowing lights and festive decorations. Ruth Chris Steak House is located in the Embassy Suites for a romantic dinner while the Hilton Garden Inn is located closer to the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola but you still get the dazzling lights from the park from your window.
A romantic stay at the American Hotel, a DoubleTree by Hilton — right downtown is the perfect getaway. The hotel has an engaging mid-century modern style that celebrates that 1960s era with pop art, furnishings and historical photos and will definitely make the stay special. Of course, any visit at a DoubleTree starts off on the right foot with a warm chocolate chip cookie, but then the pop retro styling and amenities in the room really set the tone. The 315 updated guest rooms offer the perfect place for some recharging, rejuvenating and romancing. The rooms features aqua mini-refrigerators (perfect for champagne) as well as headboards with massive photographic imagery. The 26 one-bedroom suites offer amazing city views. Start the romantic evening off at the Cloak Room Kitchen and Bar where you will enjoy a martini that is shaken, not stirred, and then settle back into sumptuous seating surrounded by rich mahogany woods and enjoy a special meal. The American offers an experience not found elsewhere in Atlanta.
