Hotel Colee Atlanta Buckhead Review

ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: We flew from Philadelphia International Airport into Atlanta on a mid-afternoon flight. After arriving at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, my cousin and I visited a friend in Atlanta for a bit, and he drove us to Hotel Colee. We got to the hotel around 8 p.m., but even though we arrived on the later side, check-in still went smoothly. After looking around the hip and well-decorated lobby, we headed up to our room to settle in.

GUEST QUARTERS: I was pleasantly surprised at how nice our room was. We stayed in one of the Grand Suites that provides a stunning view of Buckhead. We entered the suite into a living room that had a long, comfortable couch, a bean bag chair and coffee table, along with a small dining table and a smart TV. A tall armoire held a fridge with complimentary water bottles and a coffee station with options for espresso, regular coffee and much more. There was also a half-bath off the living area.

In the bedroom, a king-sized bed sat in the middle of the room, and another smart TV hung on the wall across from the bed. There was also a little bench, and exposed pipes doubled as a rack to hang clothes on.

The huge full bathroom, off the bedroom, was one of my favorite features. It was covered in mirrors. The shower was the best part, with perfect water pressure and four water jets on the wall to hit every part of your body.

SERVICES/AMENITIES: We made this trip during the pandemic, so things were still trying to get back to normal. The hotel restaurant was closed, but we enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the comfort of our room. We just had to call down to the front desk to place our order, and it was delivered to the room in no time!

The lobby bar and the rooftop bar were both open for guests to enjoy — we didn’t get to go to the rooftop due to a private event on Friday and stormy weather on Saturday, but both destinations looked beautiful.

The hotel also has a rooftop pool where guests can relax, cool off and take in the stunning views of the surrounding area of Buckhead.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

The rooftop pool and bar are a must when staying at Hotel Colee; both provide a relaxing environment and great views of Buckhead.

The Buckhead location is great, outside of the hustle and bustle of Atlanta but still easy to get to. Plenty of attractions and shops are within walking distance, including Lenox Square.

The guestroom was spacious and provided a welcoming environment and a home-like feel.
