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, McCool Travel highly recommends that you consider staying at this brand new relaxed luxury hotel, The Burgess Hotel.

The Burgess Hotel in Buckhead: Atlanta Georgia Boutique Hotel
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.

Seven themed suites at The Burgess Hotel will tempt travelers wanting a more special experience. Each suite is individually decorated for a world destination—such as Morocco, China, India, or London. The penthouse suite has an African safari theme.
The Burgess Hotel Lobby
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.
Mr. B Bar at The Burgess Hotel
The vibe at the Mr. B Bar is elegant and intimate but also cosmopolitan. Enjoy a craft cocktail or glass of wine at the long bar or in one of the lush sofa areas.
Among the craft cocktails here is an amazing Coconut Pecan Old Fashioned.
Mr. B is named for Freny’s father, Keki Bunshah, who organized the first Indian expedition of Mount Everest. His incredible photographs make the walls of Mr. B Bar come alive with thoughts of adventure.

The fitness center at The Burgess Hotel has Pelaton and other modern exercise machines. Traditionalists will appreciate the free weights and space to stretch, sweat, and move. A guided video system workout will entertain, inspire, and educate patrons of all physical abilities.
An onsite concierge at The Burgess Hotel will assist you with dining reservations, Atlanta activities or tickets, and other requests. The property offers a shuttle to transport guests within two miles. For a car-free vacation in Atlanta, the hotel concierge suggested to me to take their shuttle to the MARTA station and then a train to the ATL airport.
