Artmore Hotel sits in the heart of Midtown. The historic building with strong notes of Spanish-influence is discreet and modest from the outside, but the courtyard, bar, and rooms will “wow” you with their modern design. Hubby and I escaped to Artmore Hotel for our monthly date night, and were lulled by the comforts of home and the relaxing patio. It was our first visit; it won’t be our last!
We stayed in a Loft Suite, which was unexpected and spectacular! The door opened to a living room with a row-kitchen including a Keurig, sink/wet bar, mini fridge, microwave, and plates and silverware. There was a café table and chairs and a large screen TV, with great light coming in from the windows.
This space also included stairs, which led to a second floor bedroom and bath. So charming! Upstairs was a HUGE bedroom with a king bed (a TRUE king bed, not a fake “hotel” king bed,) a large screen TV, and a desk/office area. The bathroom here included a shower and Aveda products. Because of the historic architecture of the building, the top-floor ceilings were sloped, with southern shutters allowing incredible natural light to fill the space.
The room was decorated with tans and whites, and bright red accents. It was modern and minimalist, yet still warm and welcoming.
Families visiting can enjoy the two-bedroom suite with a king and queen bed, and fully equipped kitchen. We saw several families while staying here. With the High Museum and Piedmont Park/Atlanta Botanical Gardens in the neighborhood, this is a great location for visiting families.
All rooms include complimentary Wi-Fi, iPod docking stations, Aveda products, a mini fridge, coffee maker, valet parking (fee,) and more. Breakfast is available on the Club Level for a fee, and Starbucks, Highland Bakery and many other great local eateries are right down the street.
Outside of the room, our favorite spot was the courtyard. The building rises on three sides of a center square, creating a welcoming escape for guests. It includes large shade trees, a water fountain, and extra comfy seating. We noticed other guests lounging with a drink and reading books in the shade. At night, the water fountain comes alive with a fire feature, and string lights create a makeshift ceiling. It’s perfect for unwinding with a drink before heading in for the evening. I could not get enough of this space!
Even if you aren’t staying the night, don’t miss a chance to stop into the Studio Bar & Cocktail Lounge for a glass of wine or a signature cocktail.
Disclosure: Thank you to The Artmore Hotel for hosting me. While I appreciate their southern hospitality, the opinions here are all my own. #keepingitreal
