This past weekend we had the opportunity to use the cash & points option to stay 3 nights at the St Regis Atlanta. I would say it was above my expectations. We paid a rate of $90 and 4800 points per night when standard rates for our days were going for $243. So we used our SPG points at a value of $.031 per point.
Arrival went smoothly and the bellman followed us to the front desk and waited for us to check in. A platinum welcome amenity was offered as either points or local award. We chose the local award which turned out to be a bottle of Pinot Noir and chocolates.
We were told we were upgraded to a Metropolitan suite at check in, but I think we actually had a Caroline Astor suite. The room was large with 3 separate rooms, a walk in closet, and a small balcony. Our room had a view of the pool and downtown Atlanta. Turn down service came every night usually around 7 PM. We really enjoyed the room and can’t say enough how much we liked it. The room had two large flat screen TVs, an Ipod docking station, and a pretty serious surround sound system.
The hotel lobby bar and pool area were very cool. Friday there was a wedding reception party on the grassy area in the picture above. The lobby bar was celebrating the 1 year anniversary of the St Regis Atlanta by serving free Woodford Reserve and live banjo music. There are a few celebrity sightings at this hotel, we think they are filming a movie in the area. The pool area was great, they did a really nice job making it feel like an oasis and of course there is a bar right next to the pool where we hit up the $15 Bellini.
I would highly recommend staying at the St Regis Atlanta either on points or a good rate. If you can use the points and cash option it will really stretch your points further.
