I’d describe the recently debuted Loews Atlanta Hotel as “contemporary Southern style meets classic luxury.” Here, the Southern flair extends to their signature restaurant, Eleven, which serves fine farm-to-table cuisine. Bar Eleven features live music and local microbrews, and Market Eleven has coffee and picnics to go — just grab a basket and enjoy your Atlanta vacation wherever it takes you.
The hotel keeps family values in mind; kids eat free (with paid adult entrée) and discounts for families are offered at local attractions. Among these include the Georgia Aquarium, which, holding over eight million gallons of water, is the world’s largest aquarium. Other popular spots include Six Flags Over Georgia, Imagine It! – The Children’s Museum of Atlanta and Stone Mountain Park.
For families with a furry friend in tow, Master Chef Marc Ehrler created “Scooby BBQ Sliders” just for dog guests (veterinarian approved, the recipe is available on the Loews Atlanta Hotel website).
