Anyone who follows the blog knows that I am a fan of the Asian group MO and a frequent guest at hotels around the world. Of course, when I was in Atlanta, it couldn't be any different! During my stay there, I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental, one of the best hotels in Atlanta. As is the brand's tradition, it is located in one of the city's most sophisticated and exclusive neighborhoods, Buckhead.

The Mandarin Oriental is 150m from the Buckhead subway station, where we can even take MARTA (as the rapid transport system is known there) to the airport. Almost in front of the hotel is the Lenox Square shopping mall, with many restaurants and shops that we Brazilians love. Next door is also Phipps Plaza, a shopping mall with luxury stores such as Dior, Prada and Louis Vuitton.
