A decade ago, Atlanta was pretty much devoid of high-end boutique hotels. Sure, there was the Westin and Four Seasons and the Ritz, but the hotel scene as a whole felt a bit staid. My, how things have changed. Now there are more luxe hotels — with their celeb-chef restaurants and trendy bars and hoity-toity toiletries and marble-encrusted everything — than the city knows what to do with. But if we absolutely must pick one, we're more than happy to drop serious cash on a mind-blowing staycation at THE MANSION ON PEACHTREE. The Mansion has a simple elegance that transcends trendiness. The bathrooms boast soaking tubs with their own LCD televisions. There's a gorgeous 60-foot indoor lap pool and the dreamy, Conde Nast-approved 29 Spa. And superstar chef Tom Colicchio's Craft is in the same compound, just across the valet stand. Aren't we fancy? 3376 Peachtree Road, 404-995-7500. www.rwmansiononpeachtree.com.
