Hotel Crush: The Artmore Hotel, Atlanta
A 1920s building that just so happens to be a chic boutique hotel isn't a regular occurence in Atlanta, which is why you should book a stay at The Artmore Hotel. Originally an apartment building built in 1924, this historic boutique hotel offers the perfect balance of relaxation, play and style all rolled up into a chic little package.
In a city known to inflate prices of hotels (and everything else) simply because of the neighborhood, The Artmore has surprisingly affordable digs in the heart of Midtown, which makes it a great option for those that want to play in the heart of the city without spending too much money. Still not convinced? Check out a few more reasons why you should book a night or three at The Artmore Hotel during your next trip to the ATL.
The Sexy Lobby - No, you won't be sleeping or brushing your teeth in the lobby, but the truth is, most of us judge a hotel's worth by how sexy the lobby is, and The Artmore's lobby gives a huge dose of sexiness. With ever-changing LED lighting to set the tone, you will have a delightful check-in. The hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating, so if you have any isssues or concerns, they will happily take care of them!
Guest Rooms that Feel Like Home - The fresh white linens and pillows remind you that you're in a hotel, but the pops of red throughout the room in conjunction with the large-scale pieces of Pop Art add that homey touch. It's not everyday that you find a hotel room with a canvas print of Audrey Hepburn over the seating area or a Beatles diptych painting in the bathroom. Aside from design, the room has a mounted flat screen TV and a Keurig coffee maker. Perhaps the other feature that makes the room feel like home is the doorbell. Yes, the rooms have doorbells. When housekeeping comes to clean your room in the morning, you won't be startled by obnoxious banging on the door. Instead, you will get a nice little 'ding.'
Keurigs in Each Room - As mentioned before, every room on the property has a Keurig. Not having one in a guest room may not be a dealbreaker for many, but if you love a no-hassle cup of coffee or tea in the morning, it's a must.
The Bar - If you're not in the mood to head out into the city, but you don't want to stay cooped up in your room all night, The Artmore has a trendy bar known as Studio Bar & Cocktail Lounge that serves up signature cocktails and variety of bites for you to nibble on while sipping.
The Beautiful Courtyard - If you prefer your cocktails al fresco, the hotel has a beautiful courtyard, which is the star attraction of the property. Located at the center of the hotel, the Mediterranean-style courtyard has beautiful trees, Edison bulbs strung overhead to illuminate the area, and a fire pit in the center of it all. It's a cozy escape that is perfect for enjoying a night of conversation under the Atlanta sky.
The Extra Perks - The Artmore Hotel offers complimentary WIFI to guests and it is conveniently located near the MARTA station. It's also in close proximity to tons of great museums like the The High Museum of Art, which is less than a half of a mile away. There is a fitness center when you're in the mood to break a sweat, the bathrooms have Aveda products and best of all, standard rooms begin anywhere from $139 and up. It's a stylish and reasonable hotel for a business trip, a romantic weekend or even a fun getaway with friends.
