The Mansion on Peachtree is located in Buckhead, which is located about 6 minutes outside of downtown. While a problem for some, we rented a car upon arrival and traveling around was easy, and enjoyable based on all of the amenities that the Buckhead area has to offer. The mansion was impeccable. The bell staff were super friendly, they remembered our names throughout the trip, knew why we were there (for college visits) and continuously asked about the colleges I was interested in. Our virtuoso rate gave us an upgrade to a premier room, breakfast daily, and a $75 food credit. While I was disappointed that the food credit couldn't be used at craft (which I expected since the Mansion's website poses it as an on-site dining option). The room was homey, with a spacious marble bathroom, a super comfortable bed, and a nice sitting area with ample closet and storage space. I was EXTREMELY MAD that we had to pay for internet access, that was the most outrageous thing I've ever heard of, especially from a luxury hotel...not acceptable (although it was wireless, which we did not have in my previous two reviews).
Breakfast at the Mansion was a mixed bag. They have freshly squeezed Green Apple juice (and by fresh I mean they squeeze to order) that was quite honestly the best juice I have ever had (we have since gone and purchased a juicer). Breakfast presentation was amazing, but the food is not good. On the weekends if you do not have room service, the only breakfast option is their buffet, which is cold, hard, and nasty....they need to re-think that one.
We did dine at craft and I highly recommend it. While I think that the dress code is a little too much for the atmosphere, the prices are fair and the food was amazing. The basil ice cream is an absolute MUST!
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the Atlanta area. It's supreme location and great staff, along with amazing appointed rooms make it one of the premier Atlanta hotels.
