Truth be told, I haven't been to Atlanta since my father lived there for a brief two years in 1996. From what I remember, Buckhead wasn't that fun but I was also a kid back then, so hanging out with ballers and finding the coolest party really wasn't on my "list of things to do." Right after the frenzy of inauguration, I hopped on a Delta flight to ATL. Upon arrival I went straight to my hotel, the W Buckhead and never really left. There was no reason to. This hotel is the newest property to open in the W/ Starwood empire and it was just as great as all the rest of the hotels. Actually, I take that back- this one was a little cooler because interior designer Thom Felicia put his magical design touch into all the rooms and common spaces (known as the "living rooms").
The bed really was as comfortable as it looks! How cute are the monogrammed pillows?

Working meal #1: tuna burger with a garlic aioli (no bun), fries (I just wanted a taste), earl grey tea with soy milk, and of course my blackberry. All of my meals came from the incredible kitchen of Jean-Georges' restaurant, Market. If I wasn't ordering room service, I would wander downstairs to have this incredible steamed shrimp salad, that to this day I can't stop thinking about.
Working meal #2: A chocolate mousse with whipped cream and tea.
One of my favorite shows to be on is Eric Bolling's ADD hour on "The Strategy Room" ( www.foxnews.com/strategyroom). Since I was in ATL, I obviously couldn't be there, but I could watch it, which was the next best thing!
It's truly amazing to think about the reach of this show...
