The room was clean and comfortable. The only thing I did not like about about the hotel was the loud music and banging above my room with also the construction next door. But after I complained about the music, the problem was resolved. I didn't see any bugs or anything like that.

This is the worst hote ever. Rooms are too small. It’s a half bathroom. Water pressure was terrible. There were roaches all over the room. You have to go to the front desk for an iron and ironing board. The room just looks beat down and old. I wouldn’t go back to this hotel if it was free. They should ...

I will never stay there again - old, run down, gross, desperately needs to be remodeled. Breakfast was a joke - fruit was even old The housekeepers did try to make it as clean as possible, in spite of it's shape. Even the parking lot is difficult to maneuver - very steep and oddly shaped. I'm surprised ...

Breeze through eclectic Atlanta

Georgia's first city and arguably the ‘capital of the South,’ Atlanta is a city where you can spy a beluga whale or giant panda cub, delight in everything from fusion fine dining to a burrito from Sweet Auburn Curb Market, and learn about where the much-loved soda comes from at World of Coca-Cola. With its blend of Southern Yankee charm and dynamic style, Atlanta appeals to business travelers staying Downtown, but those who want to tour both Civil War and civil rights history can still have their fill with the Atlanta Cyclorama museum and Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site.

Things to see and do
Zoo Atlanta and Grant Park

Zoo Atlanta is home to well over 1,500 animals, set in the sprawling Victorian design of Grant Park, hence the animal attraction's original name of Grant Park Zoo. The biggest draw is often the resident pandas, though a varied line-up of everything from elephants to chameleons also brings in the family crowds. With the zoo sitting alongside Civil War museum Atlanta Cyclorama, guests can spend a whole day pleasing everyone in the family in Grant Park.

Georgia Aquarium and Lake Lanier

Marvel at the wide array of marine life, activities and educational programs offered by the Georgia Aquarium on the north side of Centennial Olympic Park, and try to squeeze in a dolphin show if there’s time. Feel like getting out on the water yourself? Visit Lake Lanier around an hour north of the city, for a solo fishing trip or some family time around the bonfire.

Atlanta museums

Head to the Fernbank Museum of Natural History to learn all kinds of fascinating things about dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. If you're more into contemporary art and photography, be sure to visit Ferst Center for the Arts. There's even a museum designed specifically for children: Children's Museum of Atlanta, with an emphasis on learning through colorful and creative workshops and play-zones. And don't miss the tempting tasting rooms at the World of Coca-Cola.

Six Flags and White Water theme parks

Six Flags is where those with a healthy craving for thrill rides should go, though there are plenty of underage options for younger visitors. The Acrophobia is a freefall tower that you'll never forget; it's merciless but unbelievably fun. Aside from rides, Six Flags offers tons of restaurants, souvenir shops and games. If you need a break from the heat, head for White Water, a theme park filled with epic water rides guaranteed to soak you through and cool you down.

Sports in Atlanta

You'll find a number of well-known sports teams in town, including the Braves, Falcons and Hawks. Make time for an exciting ballgame at the Phillips Arena. The basketball skills of the Hawks are also on display here, as well as international music and television stars that include the likes of Oprah Winfrey.

Getting to Atlanta and around

Located approximately eight miles south of downtown, the Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) is the world's busiest airport. However, it is very accessible and within a mile you'll find numerous Atlanta hotels, including Marriott Gateway Atlanta Airport, the Days Inn Airport Best Road and the SpringHill Suites Atlanta Airport Gateway. If you're staying Downtown or in Buckhead, use MARTA rapid rail transport direct from the airport.

You can also travel to Atlanta and get around by train, with the national rail station at Peachtree Center and the Amtrak station at Peachtree Street N.W, allowing you to jump on and off the network of buses and local trains throughout the city.

Best time to visit

If you have the choice, plan your trip to Atlanta in late May. This time of year is summery without being too hot, and many concerts and other fun-filled activities get underway. The subtropical climate means that things can get humid here later in the year, with temperatures well into the 90s. Avoid thunderstorms and windier weather by coming in the relatively calm and dry autumn.
