Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead Reveals Property-Wide Renovation

Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead has unveiled a property-wide refresh encompassing all its 127 guestrooms and suites, including new Astoria Suites and a Presidential Suite redesign. The project, which commenced in 2022, includes the hotel’s new signature restaurant, Brassica, and its Peacock Alley lounge and Solarium spaces, besides the refreshed Waldorf Astoria Spa.

Led by BHDM Design, the renovation was inspired by local Atlanta influences. Bringing to life the destination’s “City Within the Forest” concept, guests will discover rich woods and warm colors complemented by design touches that embrace the greenery and nature that surround Atlanta throughout the hotel’s spaces.

The “City Within the Forest” narrative can be experienced throughout the guestrooms. Corridors have been updated with new paint, custom dogwood-inspired carpet by Jamie Stern and artwork created by local artists from Soho Myriad. The guestrooms have new swing arm wall sconces with over-scaled shades, cream-colored sofettes and dark walnut and bronze round tables, designed for both dining and working. More than 25 Signature Suites are adorned with custom tables and upholstery, walnut millwork and newly furnished balconies with views of downtown Buckhead; this includes two newly created Astoria Suites, which offer more than 1,000 square feet and are equipped with two large terraces and kitchenettes outfitted with modern appliances.

The hotel has also redesigned its 2,340-square-foot Presidential Suite. A fireside lounge is housed in updated deco millwork and bespoke furnishings, including custom-designed tables, seating, lighting and artwork. The working kitchen offers high-end appliances, polished walnut cabinets and stone marble counters; dinner is served at a new custom dining table with chairs for six and an island that can also seat three. The adjacent primary bedroom suite is decked out with a floor-to-ceiling upholstered headboard, besides new furnishings and contemporary artwork. Additional facilities include a deep soaking tub overlooking the city and two private terraces overlooking the Buckhead neighborhood.

Good to know: Guests also have the option to connect the suite with an adjoining room to create a larger two-bedroom suite.

The 15,000-square-foot Waldorf Astoria Spa has 13 revamped treatment rooms, vitality pools, a 60-foot saline lap pool with a private terrace overlooking the hotel’s English Garden, and fitness center, alongside an extensive treatment menu that embraces the “City Within the Forest” ethos with its signature body wraps, exfoliation treatments and massage therapies.

Renovation plans include the hotel’s meeting and event spaces, completing the property-wide refresh. The 12 meeting rooms on the second floor will receive a decor and lighting refresh, while the ballroom on the lobby level will be completely renovated. The project is slated to begin in Q4 2023.
