Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Buckhead
Atlanta's third tallest high-rise district is second to none when it comes to Atlanta luxury. Eight miles north of downtown, the glittering glass towers of Buckhead's high-end hotels try to outshine each other. To get the best deals at Buckhead's upscale malls, you may have to elbow some Real Housewives of Atlanta out of your way. Phipp's Plaza has the swankiest selection—Saks, Versace, Nordstrom, Jimmy Choo, Lilly Pulitzer—but Buckhead Station has the best bargains at DSW, Nordstrum Rack, and TJ Maxx. Phipp's has a 14-screen multiplex, though you may need to borrow a kid to see Atlanta MiniLand at Phipp's LEGOLAND Discovery Center (adults are allowed entry without kids only on designated Adult Nights). For grand decorating ideas, tour the Governor's Mansion and visit Atlanta History Center's antebellum Smith Family Farmhouse and elegant 1928 Swan House. Buckhead's answer to Midtown's sprawling High Museum is the more intimate, focused Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, featuring 800 works by 200-plus Georgia artists. Rumbling stomachs call for steak and lobster bisque lunches at Bone's Restaurant, and spiked Southern Cola cocktails and burgers 10 pm (sharp) at Holeman and Finch Public House. For demos by <em>Top Chef</em> stars and Buckhead flavor to go, stop by Peachtree Road Farmers Market Saturday mornings, April through October.
