Georgian Terrace Hotel


Today I went to a lunch for my Aunt Betty's Birthday. I love aunt Bettie she is the sweetest person I know. But, I had no idea what a treat it would be.......My friend Dottie has a knack for picking the best lunch places but, this one was a doozie........The Georgian Terrace Hotel is a gorgeous Atlanta Landmark, smack dab in the middle of downtown. It has just undergone 11 million dollars in renovations and it is 2die4 (in the words of Miss Trash). This alabaster staircase just took my breath away.......such a gorgeous site. So much beauty and history in this place, so glad they were able to save it. Everywhere you look it is just marble and more marble, beautiful capitals, and stone features all around. I couldn't stop drooling and just had to show y'all.

Lots of magnificent lighting is all over this place.

And the best part, it is right across the street from another Midtown Icon, The Fox Theater. So glad they saved this place too.......

And here I am with my sweet Aunt Bettie (in the pink), Dottie and her mom Sara. I love these guys. Hope you enjoyed it. Cheers, lauri
