The Burgess Hotel in Buckhead: Atlanta Georgia Boutique Hotel

The Burgess Hotel is the first boutique hotel in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, and it is filled with unique, Internationally-inspired decor and plush accommodations. It replaces the former Wingate property at the same location—which opened in 2000 and was the #1 rated Atlanta hotel by TripAdvisor.

For your next business trip to Buckhead or leisure Atlanta vacation, we recommend that you consider staying at this brand new relaxed luxury hotel, The Burgess Hotel.

Thank you to The Burgess Hotel for hosting McCool Travel.

Where is The Burgess Hotel

The Burgess Hotel is located on Piedmont Road in the vibrant Buckhead District of Atlanta. The hotel is about 19 miles from the airport and 1.2 miles from the Buckhead MARTA station. McCool Travel tip: The Burgess Hotel offers a shuttle within 2 miles of the property so have them pick you up at the MARTA station!

History of The Burgess

Burges and Freny Jokhi are hospitality industry veterans. They financed the $15+ million renovations of the former Wingate by Wyndham property to create this new boutique hotel. Most of the artwork in the property is produced by prominent Chicago artist Jessica Jokhi (and is also their daughter).

The new hotel is a member of the Wyndham Trademark Collection—which are carefully curated and unique properties around the world which leave a lasting impression on visitors. Check out The Burgess Hotel and see if you agree.

The elegantly designed lobby at The Burgess Hotel feels welcoming but luxurious, comfortable and inviting. Beautiful artwork, adventurous photos, and thoughtful intricate touches abound. We loved the blue bookcases filled with blue books.

Canteen snacks are located in the lobby but hidden behind the registration desk. Ask someone at the front desk for a snack when you check-in or during your stay. The meeting table is convenient for a workspace or conference.

Fia Restaurant at The Burgess Hotel

Prominent Atlanta chef Daniel Porubiansky, formerly of Bacchanalia, brings his European culinary and fine cuisine skills to Fia Restaurant at The Burgess. Fia serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day and the open kitchen concept makes for a more memorable dining experience.

With a wood-burning grill, Fia Atlanta entices patrons with savory scents of perfectly prepared filets and impeccable Faroe Island salmon. The menu is predominantly Mediterranean (Fia means flickering fire in Italy) but definitely try the astounding pork belly.

  1. Well, in Atlanta I was a guest of our mutual friend who shares my last name, but this place would have been nice too, as long as I could have refills on that gin cocktail. 🙂

  2. That bar looks like fun! Boutique hotels have so much character, and the your room was indeed spacious. Is Chef Dan still associated with Bacchanalia?
