My husband and I stayed at Rosewood Hotel Georgia while in town for a conference (USCAP). We have stayed at Rosewood resorts before and always had an amazing experience. This was no different. The room was amazing, with modern amenities including a nespresso machine (my husband loved this and used it every day) and convenient buttons on the wall to control lighting, including one right next to the bed to turn on the "privacy" sign, which was extremely convenient! I hate it when I get in bed then realize I forgot to put the privacy sign out on the door... The best part of the room is the bathroom. The floors are heated, the whole bathroom is covered with beautiful dark brown marble and the shower is amazing. It's huge and has 4 rain shower heads. The bathroom itself is also quite large and takes up about 1/3rd of the room or more. The only complaint I have about the room is that the closet is teeny and there's no way to stow your suitcases or unpack all of your clothes. I don't think this would be as big of a deal in the summer but when we went it was really cold so we had a lot of bulky clothes. Also there was some street noise that made it a little difficult to sleep some nights. We could have used a sound machine but it didn't bother us so much that we went out of our way to find some way to block the noise.
The hotel is conveniently located and was an easy downhill 10 minute walk to the convention center every morning. It is also in easy walking distance of many great restaurants.
As far as the hotel staff, they could not have been more friendly or helpful. Every concierge we talked to there gave us the best recommendations and was extremely helpful. Same for the front desk and staff at the hotel restaurant, which we went to for drinks and dessert. Drinks were good, dessert was OK. But like I said, best service ever. I couldn't have asked for anything more.
We also sampled the spa. I got a relaxation massage and the cocoon treatment, both of which were heavenly. I also got a manicure and pedicure. My husband got a deep tissue massage that he wasn't too impressed with. He also got the shower tapas as well as the scalp tapas, both of which he really enjoyed. Again the staff was very professional, did a great job and really went the extra mile to make you feel relaxed. The spa itself was absolutely beautiful, with a great cozy relaxation room and really beautiful facilities.
We didn't bring our swimsuits but wish we had after we saw the pool. It, too, was really beautiful with large dark brown marble pillars and a beautiful tile deck. The bottom of the pool has large panels of lights that slowly change colors. We did go to the gym, which has all state of the art equipment and a small room for doing non-machine related exercises, as well as a set of free weights. The gym is also really aesthetically pleasing and is surrounded by large floor to ceiling windows so you can watch the city below. The staff keeps the gym sparkly clean, coming in every 20 minutes or so to tidy up. They keep cool water and cool towels readily available. Some of the cardio machines even have games on them that you can play while you work out, which I thought was a pretty neat feature. I really enjoyed working out in it and wish I had been able to use it more.
Overall a great experience. I would go back again.
