Despite being only the thirty-third largest city in the states, and having little more to shout about than hosting the Olympics back in 1996 - Atlanta is in fact one of the biggest business hubs across the Atlantic.
Home to Coca Cola, Delta Airlines and AT&T - the Georgia State Capital this month welcomes a new resident, which will no doubt be a welcome addition to Atlanta’s booming business scene.
Standing in marked contrast to the sweltering dustiness of downtown Atlanta, the latest offering from W Hotels is a veritable oasis of urban glitz.
The lobby, designed by Canadian team Burdifilek, comes coated in hand-carved walnut offset by an elegant range of metallic embellishments - including a rippling steel mobile and a 22-foot water feature with a mesh of metal lilies.
Step out of the haze of the public spaces into the upper quarters and things come a little clearer. Rooms and suites are decked out in shades of mulberry, teal and slate, whilst makssar wood cladding, sumptuous carpeting, and ultra-low lighting do the rest.
With frosted bathroom walls, leaf-inspired latticework and steely shades of linen, the guestrooms bring a sense of balance to the opulence of the public spaces.
For the ultimate in overstated luxury however, book into the W Atlanta’s signature Extreme Wow suite. All 1,500 meters of which come utterly dedicated to decadence.
Featuring all the sultry luxury of the lower decks, the Wow suite comes complete with all amenities, along with a wetbar, full kitchen and an intriguingly titled, rainforest shower.
