My wife and I celebrated our 35th anniversary here and it was a perfect weekend. The hotel went out of the way to accommodate us, giving us an early arrival and late checkout, chocolate and strawberries within 10 minutes of our arrival, and a room upgrade. Staff repeatedly congratulated us.
The hotel is truly a luxury hotel, with lots of the small things that make you feel special when you get there, from a cold hand towel at checkin, to quick in room dining delivery to your room, turn down service at night, with an orchid on your bed and towel and slippers next to your bed.
The hotel is located in the center of Buckhead, diagonally across the street from one of the largest malls in the South(Lenox mall). There are great restaurants of every variety within easy walking distance in just about every direction. The area is very safe.
The rooms are large, very clean and very comfortable - we had one with a large balcony (on the 14th floor), a rarity in Atlanta. Bathrooms are large and well appointed. They had the largest bath towels (and fluffiest) I have ever seen in a hotel.
The rooms were very quiet. Despite being across the hallway from the elevator, we never heard a word from the hallway. We were overlooking busy Peachtree Street, but never even heard the cars.
The place we not inexpensive, but unlike many other "luxury" hotels, the cost was well worth the service we received and I was impressed that unlike many luxury hotels, you did not feel like you were being gouged with multiple ways to charge you. For example, a half bottle of excellent red wine in the room bar was very reasonably priced - significantly less than I would have paid to get it at the hotel bar.
We used a package for locals that included 10-20% discounts on the spa (which was excellent, probably the best we have used in Atlanta), free valet parking, $40 per night in food credit, free Wi-Fi, etc.
This is probably the best hotel we have stayed at in Atlanta over the 35 years we have been here - and we have probably stayed in most of the Atlanta luxury hotels over time.
I would recommend the Buckhead Mandarin Oriental without the slightest hesitation.
