ATLANTApix: Four Seasons

Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta
Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta
Atlanta's only five star, four diamond hotel, the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, stands proudly in the Midtown skyline. The hotel occupies the first 30 of 53 floors in the building with the remaining floors allocated for residential condominimums. Guest rooms and suites occupy the 5th through the 19th floor, including the 2,200 square foot Presidential Suite.

When originally completed in 1992, the building was known as the GLG Grand (for Swedish developer, G. Lars Gullstedt). Before being acquired by the Four Seasons, it was known as the Occidental Grand for a period of time.

The building's design is neoclassical with a facade of rose and pink granite. The building's interior is decorated in yellow, gold, and cinnamon colors, and the main lobby features a Baccarat chandelier.

In this photo, the Four Seasons is center, flanked by the Promenade II (left) and the 1180 Peachtree (right).
