In a surprising turn of events, Buckhead’s esteemed Mandarin Hotel has revealed that the building has sold and will soon be managed by Hilton, rebranding as Waldorf Astoria. We can expect remodeling of the existing hotel, and those familiar with other Waldorf Astorias around the globe can attest that the brand is known for their tastefully designed spaces which only heightens the excitement for this new Buckhead location.

The Mandarin Hotel located at 3376 Peachtree Road was built between 2006 and 2008, and is the 12th tallest building in Atlanta. It is considered to be one of Buckhead’s premiere luxury hotels, with 127 rooms and suites, a 15,000 square foot spa, indoor lap pool, café and bar, and meeting and event space. Permanent residents of the 48 residential units including those in “The Villas” located in the English Gardens were notified of the rebranding in a confidential letter just a few weeks ago.
Buckhead.com has reached out Hilton for more information and renderings but as of this posting there has been no response. What we do know is that the hotel will no longer be managed by the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group as of December 7, 2018, and sources suggest that significant renovations will begin soon.
