AAA picks Georgia’s best hotels, restaurants
By Leon Stafford
The Four Seasons Atlanta, InterContinental Buckhead, (St. Regis Hotel photo below) and both Ritz-Carlton locations are the best hotels in Atlanta, according to travel organization AAA.
The five properties received AAA’s Five Diamond award — the group’s top recognition for hotels — in the group’s annual survey of Georgia’s leading lodgers and restaurants. The Ritz-Carlton Lodge at Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro and The Lodge at Sea Island in St. Simons also received Five Diamonds.
No restaurants received Five Diamonds.
Overall 34 Georgia hotels and 12 restaurants earned Four or Five Diamonds in AAA ratings — 28 of them in Atlanta — for the past 12 months, the organization said. AAA will host a Diamond award event on Monday at the Four Seasons.
Metro Atlanta restaurants receiving Four Diamonds: Aria, Atlanta Grill, Bacchanalia, BLT Steak, Canoe, La Grotta Ravinia Ristorante Italiano, La Grotta Ristorante Italiano, Nan Thai Fine Dining, Nikolai’s Roof, Park 75 and Restaurant Eugene.
