Opened in 2009, Kimpton's first Atlanta address stylishly mixes business and pleasure, with its Midtown location (close to Piedmont Park and even closer to the city's airport-connected rail system) and movers-and-shakers scene. The Art Deco–inspired design of Hotel Palomar's 304 guest rooms feels a tad corporate, but cranberry-colored accents liven up the otherwise subdued brown-on-taupe palette, and there are some playful touches, such as animal-print bathrobes. (Traveling with kids? Request pint-size versions of the robes and playing cards from the front desk.) At Pacci, the hotel's slick burgundy, glass, and brocade dining room, Kobe beef carpaccio and short-rib gnocchi are recurring favorites on the ever-changing modern Italian menu. And to cap it all off, there's Altorex, the year-round rooftop lounge with cocktail cabanas, a covered bar, and cityscape views that keep local scenesters and socialites coming back for more, overnight reservation or no.—Tiffany J.
