I arrived at the four-star Hotel at Avalon to find my besties having a Sex and the City moment, clad in all black, tossing back cosmos at the luxe lobby bar like it was the summer of 1998. We decided to splurge and celebrate our fabulous friend with a grown-girl surprise slumber party with matching furry slippers and champagne in our stylish connecting rooms at the posh hotel, which was conveniently located just off GA 400 near the guest of honor’s house.

Set in a cosmopolitan mixed-use community, the Hotel at Avalon has 330 guest rooms and premium suites, a resort-style terrace pool, fitness center, the acclaimed local South City Kitchen, and live entertainment on select nights. The Hotel at Avalon, Autograph Collection, is an idyllic haven with Southern roots in charming hospitality. 

While a few of the girls were sipping martinis, others were secretly gilding one of the guest rooms with golden decor, buckets of champagne, gifts and a decadent cake topped with an abundance of candles.  Our sophisticated hotel rooms featured boutique décor, tons of natural light and pillowtop mattress with fluffy cloud-like duvets. Cozy robes, lighted makeup mirrors and a mini fridge came in very handy.

Fortunately, It was a short walk from the bar (since a few of us dared to wear heels) to our reserved table at South City Kitchen, an upscale Atlanta restaurant with elevated southern cuisine. Juicy steaks, fancy salads and lots of roasted brussel sprouts, accompanied by a nice bottle of cab sav, starred in the next phase of our progressive party at the report-style property. We had a few great desserts with several forks. Our dinner service was exceptional.

Since we really can’t party like it’s 1999, we retired to our room and yelled the obligatory ”Surprise” followed by a sloppy rendition of the birthday song before slipping on pjs, popping bubbly and slicing the ceremonial cake. We all piled in to watch the gift wrap unravel before the predictable plot of a classic rom com that was playing on our 55-inch flat-screen TV. The following morning, we resisted the urge to lounge at the impressive pool (or to work out at the fitness center).

The shops of Avalon are right outside the door along with more cafes, bars, entertainment and interesting people. Avalon is a new experience in the timeless art of living well. In the heart of Alpharetta, this sustainably designed, 86-acre community features more than 570,000 square feet of retail, a 12-screen all premium theater, conference center and full-service hotel, Class A office, single-family residences and luxury rental homes. 

Insider Tip: Reserve the cute Hotel at Avalon bikes and ride down the AlphaLoop to Downtown Alpharetta. The 1-mile, flat, scenic trail is the ideal way to commute between Avalon and Downtown. You’ll be able to shop and dine with ease in both distinct districts!

Talk about southern charm. My Alpharetta adventure continued with a walk through the Downtown Alpharetta Farmers Market — held every Saturday from April -November.  After admiring hand-crafted jewelry, prodding produce, and sampling farm-fresh delights, the girls decided it was time for a mimosa and brunch at Carrie’s Conservatory located at The Hamilton. Fortunately, our older and wiser Alpharetta expert knew all the cool spots. 

Drink outdoors? Yes please. Decisions are hard. Soak up the sun or sit beneath the shade of a classic umbrella? You can’t go wrong on the massive 11,000 square foot terrace that simply oozes Parisian flair. The Hamilton unites classical architecture and modern-day industrial design that debuted when the first boutique hotel opened in the vibrant heart of Alpharetta.

Drawing from the rich and inspiring transportation history of the Western & Atlantic Railway, the hotel’s design reflects the industrial insurgence by incorporating rich colors, heavy textures, and modern accommodations with a vintage charm to create an artfully curated guest experience honoring the momentous influence of its history.

If you want more than a buttery croissant, try Fulton’s Public House at The Hamilton. The menu showcases regional breakfast dishes with a local flair, stemming from memories made around the dinner table. With a Southern allegiance and focus on farm-fresh ingredients, the menu offers simple, inspired favorites guided by Atlanta’s local markets and specialty butcher cuts.

The opulent charming hotel offers a new way to immerse yourself right into the historic district. Located in the true center of downtown, brick sidewalks lead to eclectic retail and diverse local dining. Bonus: Outdoor concerts at Ameris Bank Amphitheatre are just five minutes away. Park once and walk all weekend. Trust me — get the girls together or plan a romantic moment to sip, shop and stroll from this gorgeous hotel. 

Insider Tip: Shhh…you didn’t hear it from us, but Alpharetta’s first speakeasy is located in the basement of the hotel. As you take the elevator down, you’ll find what you think is a tailoring shop…but if you have the correct password, you’ll be escorted into a glamourous 1920’s haunt.
