Downtown Atlanta Hotel Near Centennial Olympic Park
When the Olympics were held in Atlanta in 1996, city leaders turned a run-down section of downtown into a majestic, 21-acre public park. Today, Centennial Olympic Park is filled with fountains, paths, and trees that commemorate the games. The Georgia Aquarium, considered the world’s largest aquarium, is part of the park as well. More than 8 million gallons of fresh and marine water hold the more than 100,000 animals that live there, including beluga whales, lionfish, whale sharks, and bottlenose dolphins. Five blocks from the park and aquarium, Hotel ATL stretches up 10 stories high, overlooking Atlanta's capital city.
From your simply furnished, traditional standard room, you'll have a view of downtown's massive skyscrapers. Every morning, you'll wake up to a hot breakfast buffet. Afterward, take a stroll to some of the famous sites within walking distance, including the World of Coca-Cola, a museum detailing Coca-Cola's history, and Zoo Atlanta, which houses pandas, gorillas, and komodo dragons.

Named 1 of 50 Places of a Lifetime by National Geographic, Atlanta lies near the Chattahoochee River in Georgia's northwest region known for its famed trees: magnolias, pines, and dogwoods. Despite a metropolitan population of more than five million and what is considered the world's busiest airport by passenger count, Atlanta seems to always offer a relaxing escape.
