Best Hotels for Your Family

Don't let family vacation time intimidate you; travel with the whole crew and stay at a family friendly hotel in Atlanta. Try the newest Great Wolf Lodge just South of the city. Looking to spend time in the company of your kids or relatives without sacrificing privacy with your spouse? Try the Georgian or the Omni at the CNN Center in Atlanta for great a great location and convenient locations to attractions. Staying in accommodations that are near shopping and attractions can make it easier for you to arrange for transportation to family-friendly destinations. Hotels that are located near public transportation reduce the need to hire a rental or take a taxi, and sometimes it's fun to take a bus and a metrorail to explore the city with your family. 

Many of the accommodations on this list have amenities that your children will enjoy. On hot days, they can swim. On cooler days, your hotel might offer a heated pool, or perhaps you and your family would prefer to get out of the hotel and jog on a nearby trail. Grown-ups can spend time in the fitness centers, available in some Atlanta accommodations.

As you drink in the skyline and the city's sights and sounds, let the whole family create and share the memories from your visit to Atlanta. Adjoining rooms can help the young ones feel a little secure in the new place, and you have the convenience to check up on small children in a hurry. Family friendly hotels can help remove some of the stress of a group trip so you can focus on time with your loved ones.
