The Ritz Buckhead remains a classic, elegant property that has not lost its shine. The staff, as always was exceptional. A particular young lady, Brielle greeted us warmly and could not have been nicer. The general manager of the property, Mr. Schinnerl runs the property with old school precision and warmth.

The room was very comfortable and clean. We were staying on the Club level and found the amenities just perfect. We enjoyed drinks before dinner and snacks a few nights before bed.

While we did not use all of the spa facilities, we were very happy to enjoy the rooftop pool. The setting was quite lovely and the entire area was perfectly maintained.

It is always temtping to try something new - we do it from time to time. But there is something so special about returning to a seasoned classic like the RItz Buckhead to find the most everything is just how you remember it.

If in the Buckehead area of Atlanta, I would strongly recoomend visiting the Ritz Buckehead. Even if you only stop in for a meal or a drink. The bar is delightful and the meals very solid.

Best Wishes, Colin

This is old style hospitality at it's best. I've stayed here many times and look forward to each return visit. While the location is not scenic, it could not be more convenient for anything north of downtown ATL. Dog friendly. Club level is superior with carolers at Christmas time. Great property

I recently returned from the Ritz Buckhead and I was pleased with the hotel in regards to using it for an event space. The rooms were a good size with beautiful bathrooms and amazing beds (as always). While the location of the property is great, there were still no views to be had which was dissapointing. The customer service at the Ritz always exceeds my expectations and this trip was no different. The banquet food was outstanding--I was happy with each meal. The food in the "bar/cafe" was good but certainly did not exceed my expectations. The turkey club and the hot wings were perfect additions to the bar menu, but overpriced. The only two tiny gripes I have with this property are: 1. The pool was inside and was lackluster 2. In order to access the event space on the 2nd floor you either had to use the elevator or take the stairs... In order to use eithe ryou have to walk out of the event space, through the lobby, and for the stairs through the bar. Not a huge deal, but a bit awkward for logistics when dealing with 200 people. Overall, great property that I look forward to returning to.

During our recent 3000+ mile road trip, one of our last stays was on The Club level of the Buckhead Ritz Carlton! They couldn't have been more gracious, taking wonderful care of two weary travelers! AND, taking perfect care of my 7 pound Poodle, Reagan! Such comfortable, friendly Southern Hospitality!

Room Tip: We had a wonderful and QUIET high floor! Highly recommend!

We arrived around 1:00 pm and there was a line to check-in. It seemed to move rather quickly and the front desk staff seemed efficient in moving people along. The room was ready even though it was before the designated check in time. We had a room on the club level, which is accessed by room key only. The room was average size but set up nicely, with a desk and chair. The bathroom is a little small. Most importantly, the room and bathroom were clean! We called for turn down service when we left for dinner, and our room had been done when we returned. As to the room, there were two negatives. First, tthe walls were thin. You could hear talking and walking in the halls and rooms. The room did have a very nice sleepmate machine, so they are obviously aware that this is a problem. Second, the a/c did not work very well. The room did not cool sufficiently during the night. The club lounge was a very nice area with plenty of tables and couch areas for seating. Their breakfast presentation was nice, with fresh fruit, bagels, muffins, hard boiled eggs, cereal, etc. The lunch presentation was also nice with salad, soup, sandwiches, etc. The staff were always very pleasant, but way too loud. There are wood floors and sound carries in this room. The staff would speak to guests from across the room, rather than approaching the guests face to face, or would speak to each other as they cleared presentations, and enjoying a peaceful cup of coffee and the newspaper was difficult. I don't think they probably realized how loud they were, but it was a distraction. We are sure if we had mentioned it to them they would have refrained from being so loud. The fitness center was small, but very well maintained. The attendant continued to clean up the area while we were there, and never just sat around doing nothing. This property has a wonderful location near shopping and restaurants. Despite a few concerns, overall it iis very good and a beautiful property to visit.

We travel to Atlanta frequently and the Ritz Carlton Buckhead is always our first choice. The service and the location of this hotel is outstanding! It is across the street from the two best malls in Atlanta and tons fabulous restaurants are all right in the Buckhead. The bar area is amazing and the service there is also so great. They remember us and what we like to drink everytime! One more tip: the sushi in the bar area from Thursday to through Saturday is so fresh and good. Might be the best sushi in Atlanta. Get the Ritz roll!

I stayed at this hotel for two days recently while traveling for business. The hotel is very nice and in a good location if you need to be out in Buckhead (not if you need to be in downtown/midtown Atlanta), but I deducted a star because the on site restaurant and food options were not great.
