Hotel

Over the weekend, my cousin and I took a quick trip to Atlanta and stayed at Hotel Colee in Buckhead, a new Marriott Autograph Hotel. We checked into the hotel around 8 p.m. and everyone was nice; check-in was a breeze.

 

When we got to the room, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was! I was in one of the Grand Suites with a king-sized bed, a living area, a full bath and a half bath. The room was spacious and made me feel like I was at home. There were complimentary water bottles for our enjoyment, and a coffee station with options for expresso, regular coffee and much more.

Due to COVID-19, maid service during our stay was suspended, but the bathroom was fully stocked with plenty of toiletries, like toilet paper, shampoo, soap and towels — we didn’t run out of anything! The shower was one of the best parts of the room. The pressure was perfect. It had a showerhead with four pressure faucets on the wall to hit every part of your body. The shampoo, conditioner and soap smelled amazing, too!

The restaurant in the hotel was closed because of the pandemic, but we were still able to enjoy a delicious breakfast in the comfort of our room. We just had to call down to the front desk to place our order and it was delivered to the room in no time! The lobby bar and the rooftop bar were both open for guests to enjoy — we didn’t get to go to the rooftop bar due to a private event on Friday and stormy weather on Saturday.

 

Overall, I had a delightful experience at Hotel Colee, I would definitely return and highly recommend it to people visiting Buckhead or the surrounding areas.

United flyers are sure to notice these enhancements from the moment they step on board: Each new or updated plane sports remodeled seats, seatback entertainment screens for everyone, Bluetooth connectivity and more, all adding up to a better experience on every journey.

These Cities Have the Most Top-Rated Bars

We all have our favorite bars, but is yours truly one of the best? A new study from Upgraded Points looked at Yelp reviews for bars specifically described as “cocktail bars,” comparing average star ratings in the 100 largest metro areas throughout the country. As a result, it uncovered what it feels are the U.S. destinations with the most highest-rated bars — and when you think cocktail culture, you probably don’t think about the city that came out on top.
