Atlanta’s Peachtree Street is a major thoroughfare where many of the city’s historic buildings and most prominent landmarks are located. The Ellis Hotel sits smack dab in the middle of the city on this historic street, sharing a neighborhood where corporate skyscrapers jostle for space with two-story landmark buildings.

The 1930s-era building that houses the hotel was reborn in 2007 as the Ellis Hotel after several previous incarnations. Although the outside may appear stately and staid, the inside has been transformed into a cozy boutique filled with modern amenities.

The lobby is a collection of sophisticated chic by way of chocolate brown wooden wall panels and black Barcelona and Le Corbusier-style leather chairs grouped under a capiz shell chandelier. Like any good hot spot, guests can be found here surfing the free hotel Wi-Fi on their laptops or phones, while waiting for a seat at the organic farm-to-table restaurant.

Unique to this hotel are the specialized rooms including a designated women-only floor, a fresh-air floor with its own air filtering system and bedding and a wellness room that, in addition to the fresh-air accoutrements, has a special water treatment system and magnetic mattress topper and desk chair.

Regardless of which room guests choose to lay their heads, all will be within just a few-minutes walk to some of Atlanta’s major downtown, sporting and convention center events. Atlanta’s Convention Center is just a four-minute walk north of the hotel and the Phillips Arena, home to the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks is a 12-minute walk west of the hotel.

Since parking is tight in this part of town and valet parking through the hotel is a steep $30 a day, past TripAdvisor guests say it’s better not to have a car, especially as so many sights are within walking distance, and the MARTA subway system has a stop next to the hotel.
