When most people think of Atlanta you think of all the "glitz and glamour" from private movie premieres, celebrity sightings, and the "Georgia Peaches". Besides being the epitome of southern chic, Atlanta provides the perfect destination for family travel. From the beautiful Centennial Park to the latest marvel: The Center for Civil and Human Rights, the “Peachtree” city is about a two hour direct flight from the Bayou City, or a whopping twelve hours if you chose to hit the highway.

The exterior of Loews Hotel

Imagine walking into an illustrious building of luxury with southern accents and ultra posh decor. That's my refreshing memory as I was greeted by my personal concierge Jonathan. He made me feel like royalty "literally and figuratively". The daily spoils of dining at Eleven Restaurant, champagne cocktails at Bar Eleven, and southern hospitality from Atlanta's luxury hotel were undeniable, and of course I relished in every moment. Loews Hotel-Atlanta prides themselves by providing impeccable service from the moment you step onto the property. With favored amenities such as: a beautiful cocktail bar, dining area, work out studio, spa, free Wi-Fi, and walkability the luxury abode is fit for a "queen". Not bad for a property that's a little over three years old, and has been confirmed as the city's number one luxury hotel.

Not to be confused with your typical luxury hotel, Loews promotes a family friendly atmosphere as well. Upon entering my plush and spacious Premier Room on the 25th floor, I was greeted with board games galore that would keep the kiddies entertained for hours while the adults could sip on some bubbly. This Midtown property ensures that most of the tourist attractions and dining options are walkable; however when planning your family time to Atlantic Station, Centennial Park, or the CNN Center take advantage of being chauffeured in their very own loaded Mercedes GL450.

Great food at The FLying Biscuit

This place made my mouth water with their homeade finger lickin' good biscuits, and the grits. Did I mention that these grits are highly addictive! As a serious breakfast conniseur I took a walk on the wild side by having three scrambled eggs with spinach, tomatoes, and monterey jack cheese, with grits that were filling with the right amount of cream and cheese.

The staff was so helpful and accomodating. They get three stars for the impeccable service, affordable price, and enjoyable dining experience for the family. http://www.flyingbiscuit.com
