Hyatt announces the opening of Thompson Buckhead, Atlanta

Hyatt has announced the opening of Thompson Buckhead, Atlanta. The 10-storey hotel is designed by the architects of Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, built under general contractors Brasfield and Gorrie, and brought to life by Studio 11 Design. The hotel exudes classic Southern charm and a design that perfectly melds romanticism with mid-century minimalism. Understated luxury mirrors the property’s envied location, while its cutting-edge architecture speaks to the city as a hub for innovation.

Location and the concept

Located in the center of the Buckhead Village neighborhood, a contemporary exterior inspires the design elements within. Greenery throughout the hotel provides natural warmth and a sense of connection to the outdoors, while a subtle blend of traditional patterns and texture with clean modern forms strikes a balance between modernity and the classic beauty of the neighborhood.


Thompson Buckhead, Atlanta consists of 201 guest rooms and suites featuring chevron-patterned wood floors, area rugs, and marble mosaics. Natural hues, complemented by rich jewel tone accents and local art, provide a serene and sophisticated environment with intimate seating and design components to be discovered. Impressive floor to ceiling windows in every room offer sweeping skyline views, and thoughtful standards include custom 400-thread count Sferra linens, Sealy Tempur-Pedic mattresses, D.S. & Durga bath products, oversized Thompson Hotels branded signature robes and a locally curated minibar.

Queen Guest Room

Junior Suites, King Suites and Parlor Suites range from 417 to 620-square feet and the signature Thompson Suite, an impressive 1,048-square-foot retreat, includes a full wet-bar, glass enclosed dining room and a master bathroom featuring a spa-inspired wet room with steam shower and soaking tub.

On the ground level, dining leaves nothing to be desired at Dirty Rascal – the 140-seat signature restaurant by James Beard Foundation semifinalist chef Todd Ginsberg and the Rye Restaurants team. Dirty Rascal harkens back to old-school Italian-American restaurants, institutions you might find in New York or off-the-strip Las Vegas. Featuring a large central bar, intimate alcoves, a wall of oversized round leather booths, and a private dining area, this is a restaurant grand enough for special occasions, but comfortable enough for people to make it their regular spot. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the restaurant is under the daily leadership of chef Joshua Hopkins, executive chef of Thompson Buckhead.


Guests of the hotel’s suites and ninth floor rooms will be invited to experience Tesserae, the hotel’s private membership rooftop club, when it debuts early next year. Tesserae will serve as an invite-only social club designed to highlight the diversity of Atlanta and create a space for its greatest thought-leaders and creators to network and socialize at the meticulously designed indoor-outdoor rooftop. The club is boldly conceptualized through the lens of inspiring members not by gathering a group of like-minded individuals, but rather by a diverse collection of individuals that might foster change and innovation. Tesserae will feature exclusive F&B amenities and access to privately curated events.


A rooftop swimming pool with private cabanas perfect for soaking in the sunshine with cocktails and friends, accompanied by unobstructed skyline views, is open to all hotel guests and rounds out the unparalleled tenth floor experience.

The hotel has a ballroom with an area of 4,187 square feet, featuring a retractable glass wall that opens to an outdoor terrace with fireplace. Additional pre-function areas, executive boardroom and divisible meeting space accommodates sophisticated groups of all sizes.

Meanwhile, Hyatt recently announced the opening of Hyatt Centric Jumeirah Dubai.
