The Whitley, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Atlanta Buckhead, owned by Host Hotels & Resorts, will unveil its multimillion-dollar transformation in June.

The Whitley's renovations include a redesign of all 507 rooms, including 56 suites, along with a remodeled reception and lobby area resembling a traditional Southern front porch. Several amenities underwent a makeover as well:

  • A 5,000-square-foot Legacy Ballroom has been recently added with space for 300 guests
  • Trade Root Restaurant and Lounge has been renovated and its menu updated to include more Southern-inspired dishes and handcrafted cocktails
  • The Spa is being restored to enhance the guest experience with the addition of a Himalayan salt room and expanded dressing areas

Located in Atlanta’s coveted Buckhead neighborhood, known as a center for shopping, art galleries, and live performances, The Whitley began renovations in the fall of 2018 which will debut in June 2019.

The Whitley is a tribute to Buckhead’s founder and trailblazer, John Whitley, a farmer, hunter, and tradesman who moved in to the area in the 19th century, looking for a place for gathering, conducting business, and sharing ideas. Whitley settled on the side of the Chattahoochee River where he mounted the area’s namesake “buck’s head.”
