Imagine arriving home in the evening to be greeted by a valet. Although y’all on a first name basis he addresses you as “sir” or “ma’am”. He takes the keys and finds a place to park your car while you pass through the glass doors stepping into the inviting threshold of the W Downtown. To the right is the swanky Living Room bar where other Atlantans are casually sipping their first (of many) cocktails. You swipe your key card granting you access to the top floors of the hotel which have been transformed into residences.

A quick elevator ride whisks you to your floor where cool white noise hums gently down the halls of the 18th floor. It’s official. You have arrived. This is your home in Downtown Atlanta.


Now how does one start this evening? By heading down to Bliss Spa for a quick massage? Swapping out the work attire for a bating suit to lounge at WETBAR or take a dip in WET’s heated pool? Or use the W’s Whatever/Whenever service to send up dinner and dessert. The choice is yours. Luxury comes standard.
