Search the best hotels in Atlanta
Atlanta is a big, busy city made out of a patchwork of small, friendly, distinct suburbs. Visitors come for the African American history, or the art, or the restaurant scene or the shopping - or for all of the above and more. There’s a great zoo, an aquarium and some great museums, so it’s just a plain great city break destination. The best places to stay in Atlanta depend on why you’re visiting. If you’re here for the High Museum of Art and the Centre for Civil and Human Rights then you need to be downtown, but if you’re here for the parks and the more unusual museums, then you might find that some of the best places to stay are in some of the less central, but prettier, suburbs.
Atlanta seems the perfect mix of the old south with the new. There are peach trees on many a corner and plenty of places to stop for a sweet tea, but Atlanta also has one of the world’s busiest airports.
What Not To Miss
- Downtown Atlanta has the state capitol, the aquarium, city hall, the CNN Centre and the World of Coca-cola.
- Midtown has some of the loveliest parks, the High Museum of Art, the Museum of Design, Atlanta, the Georgia Tech campus and the Woodruff Arts Centre.
- Buckhead, another business district north of Midtown, has the Governor’s Mansion, the Lindberg Centre and more lovely parks.
- If you’re interested in Atlanta’s history - and this is a truly fascinating place as it was the only American city to have been destroyed by war - the Martin Luther King Jr. Historic Site is in Sweet Auburn, the Atlanta Cyclorama, which depicts the Civil War, is in nearby Grant Park, and the Atlanta History Centre is in Bulkhead, where you’ll find a huge collection of Civil War memorabilia.
- Atlanta is also a great place to shop for antiques and art and there’s a pleasantly eclectic collection of shopping neighbourhoods to explore - as well as big malls and destination shopping streets with all the big names.
This is a busy city year round, so if you want to book a room in one of the best places to stay in Altanta, don't leave it till the last minute!
