Downtown Atlanta Ritz Carlton Reviews
The Downtown Atlanta Ritz Carlton is the best luxury hotel to stay if you are going to a concert at the Philips Arena. We have two Downtown Atlanta Ritz Carlton Reviews at Chic Family Travels and we will be happy to answer any questions if you post a comment on our blog post!
Chic Family Travels stayed at the Downtown Atlanta Ritz Carlton last year for the Taylor Swift Concert, and we loved it so much that we decided to do it again in 2013! Thus, we decided to give you an updated review of the downtown Atlanta Ritz Carlton. (You can check out our previous review of the downtown Atlanta Ritz Carlton here)
Our group of family and friends booked adjoining rooms at the Atlanta Ritz Carlton on the club level. The downtown Atlanta Ritz Carlton club lounge has some of the friendliest hosts and best service that we have experienced at the Ritz Carlton chain. In fact, we saw many familiar faces from the prior year.
The downtown Atlanta Ritz Carlton is approximately 8 blocks from the Philips arena which is very walkable. Nonetheless, the Ritz Carlton house car will likely give you a lift if you ask nicely 🙂
Just like last year, Taylor Swift even decided that the downtown Atlanta Ritz Carlton was the best luxury hotel to stay near the Philips Arena. Even though we never had a “Taylor sighting” at the Ritz, our kids got a kick out of the HUGE security guys that guarded the elevator on the 25th floor.
We probably got closer to Taylor Swift at the concert than the hotel 🙂 We splurged for the VIP ultimate experience tickets and it was worth every penny! We have 3rd row seats, and a pre-party that made our little girls feel like a million dollars. Mrs. Swift even made an appearance and spoke to each guest. It would have been better if Tay Tay showed up, but we are not complaining!
And Yes, we did wear flashing t-shirts, flashing fedoras and flashing boas! Hey, it was for the kids. If you are going to go to a Taylor Swift concert then go all out! Flashing fedoras and all!
