When Ray Charles sang ‘Georgia on My Mind’, he was almost certainly talking about a memorable trip to Six Flags Over Georgia – while not confirmed, we rate it’s highly likely.
This epic theme park, opened in 1967, has 11 heart-stopping – not literally – roller coasters, plus its brand new Hurricane Harbour water park. Just one look at the loop-the-loops and you’ll be left feeling dizzy. After all that exertion, you’ll need somewhere to rest and recuperate and we’ve curated a great selection of hotels for you – all bookable on Culture Trip.
Just four miles from Sweetwater Creek State Park and a little more from the adventures waiting at Six Flags Over Georgia, rest easy knowing everything is covered at this newly built hotel. The guest rooms feature sleek decor and contemporary furnishings, adorned in restful pastels to aid a good night’s sleep. Hotel facilities include complimentary parking, a gym and lap pool and an on-site restaurant serving American cuisine for breakfast and dinner. All this is complete with signature Starbucks beverages and evening cocktails – not served in the same cup, though.
Upscale in downtown, this luxurious hotel complete with classic Southern hospitality is inspired by its location in the heart of Atlanta. Newly renovated guest rooms sport rich deep colors, natural materials and a traditional theme with an attractive modern twist. With a stunning rooftop bar boasting sweeping views over Georgia’s skyline, you’ll also find a 24-hour gym. You’re just an eight-minute walk away from the Peachtree Centre metro station and 12 minutes from the World of Coca-Cola, too.
Since this is next to the world headquarters of CNN, here are the headlines: chic rooms with spectacular views, a generous choice of food and drink options, an outdoor heated pool and sundeck – along with a Coca-Cola-themed suite available – all connected to the State Farm Arena and Georgia World Congress Centre. This just in: the rooms are beautifully finished with tasteful elegance and the suites with park views are something to behold.
Set in an elegant Beaux Arts high-rise built by Coca-Cola magnate Asa Griggs in 1906, this cozy high-end hotel blends classical style and art deco with beautiful contemporary touches. The accommodation has an understated elegance to it – monochromatic with pops of rich color and bathrooms that are incredibly luxurious, complete with marble and copper finishing. Go down the impressive staircase and you’ll find a chic restaurant and gym – plus valet parking for a fee.
Nearly all of the must-see attractions are within walking distance of this modern hotel – it’s opposite Georgia Aquarium, a short nine-minute walk from the Georgia World Congress Centre and just 13 minutes away from the nearest subway station. The friendly and comfortable rooms are great for kicking back in after a day of exploring the city and facilities include a complimentary breakfast buffet, mini-mart and fitness center – plus a very attractive outdoor pool to take the edge off the Atlanta heat.
No, we won’t make a joke about feedback – we’re too good for that. But true excess exists in all areas of this Hard Rock iteration – with music as the central theme, of course. Your very cool luxurious room focuses on personalisation: use voice commands to play your own music, change the temperature or tweak the lighting. Amenities include a sleek cafe/bar, 24/7 dining and a rooftop bar where you can enjoy live music as you soak up the unparalleled views of the Atlanta skyline. The wonders of Six Flags Over Georgia is a little over a 10-minute journey on a good day.
