Mitchell Ballroom - has over nine hundred square feet of space and an eighteen-foot ceiling. The timeless elegance theme continues in this space. This intimate ballroom is perfect for small ceremonies of up to one hundred persons.

The Livingstone Restaurant is another of our favorite spaces in this grand hotel on Peachtree. This restaurant on the corner of Peachtree Street and Ponce de Leon Avenue hosts many rehearsal dinners and cocktail hour receptions for weddings in the Grand Ballroom. The two-story turreted corner entrance is a must for photographs on the inside and outside.

History and Features

The Georgian Terrace Hotel opened in 1911; on October 2 that year, patrons from all over the city celebrated the hotel's addition to the town. The Grand Ballroom was at capacity while a costumed Spanish band entertained guests. Since its opening, some of the hotel's more famous guests include Clark Gable, Calvin Coolidge, Walt Disney, and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Gone with the Wind 1939 premiere was at the Georgian Terrace, with most of the stars staying at the hotel.

The 'Grand Old Lady of Peachtree' has been through many changes over the years and was scheduled for demolition at one point. Its entry into the National Register of Historic Places successfully blocked its demise.

Features | The hotel features classical architectural details, such as turreted corners, floor-to-ceiling Palladian-styled windows, and expansive wrap-around columned terraces.

The facade comprises a two-story high window arcade set under a wide cornice supported on narrow pilasters. Four columns hold up the entrance on the Ponce de Leon Avenue facade.

The hotel's inside was decorated with crystal and Italian bronze chandeliers, white marble columns, ornate pilasters, paneled walls, elliptical staircases, and Italian-tiled floors.
