The Terrace served as the headquarters for the Metropolitan Opera when it visited Atlanta each Spring in the early 1900's. The great opera singer, Enrico Caruso stayed here in 1913 and sent a gracious thank you from London complimenting the excellent food and accommodations. Clark Gable, Vivian Leigh and most of the "Gone With The Wind" cast stayed here when the film premiered in Atlanta in December, 1939.
The Terrace served as host to Presidents Warren Harding and Calvin Coolidge. Arthur Murray once operated one of his early dancing schools here while he was attending Georgia Tech.
Over the years "The Grand Old Lady of Peachtree" became known as one of the great hotels of the Southeast because of its elaborate Ballroom, the Terrace Outdoor Caf?, Marble lobby and elegant furnishings.
