CoStar – July 13, 2022:
With a wave of conversions during the pandemic — along with the return of major renovations as more brands reassert the need for capital improvements — more hotels need to reintroduce themselves to the traveling public.

Thrillist – July 13, 2022:
While some of us may have a favorite hotel brand that we’ll stay loyal to (and there’s certainly nothing wrong with doing that), we all deserve to experience something different every once in a while. Aren’t you tired of staying in crowded hotels that all look the same? If you are, then you need to introduce yourself to the world of boutique hotels—a.k.a. the visually stunning getaways that you typically only see on TV and social media.

Insider – July 12, 2022:
Atlanta is a huge city, with its metro area spanning some 8,000 square miles. While residents like me fan out into diverse neighborhoods, most leisure visitors and business travelers stay in three conveniently located ones: Buckhead, midtown, and downtown.

Simply Buckhead – June 30, 2022:
Sometimes, Buckhead and Old Fourth Ward seem worlds away. The two neighborhoods are, in fact, a mere 6 miles apart. I arrived at Wylie Hotel on Ponce de Leon Avenue, a stone’s throw from Ponce City Market, and was greeted in the lobby by what I can only describe as the modern millennial aesthetic: a pleasant mix of pastels, jewel tones, curved lines and historical references. The lobby is small but inviting, setting the tone for my stay.
“Pretty on Ponce”
Smithsonian Magazine – June 7, 2022:
One of the best-known venues among the Guild Guide’s Southern entries, Mrs. P’s was opened in 1956 by Vera and Hubert Phillips. Chenault reports that the Phillips had built up a loyal lesbian clientele when they ran the nearby Piedmont Tavern, where softball players would repair after games, but the hotel basement tearoom became a favorite of gay white men.
The former Ponce de Leon reopened in 2021 as Wylie Hotel. The boutique hotel’s signature restaurant is Mrs. P’s Bar & Kitchen, serving “global classics with seasonal Southern flair,” such as grilled peanut hummus and red bean arancini.
