Want to learn more about Atlanta? Snag a hotel around Emory University. Downtown ATL is an amazing place to spend the night, but there are equally awesome neighborhoods on the outskirts of the city that’ll show you a new side of A-Town. From century-old hotels with bars that have delighted drinkers for decades to hip hotels serving up modern takes on classic Southern fare, try one of these hotels near Emory University.

Though Emory Conference Center Hotel is a great space for employees to work remotely, it’s far from business as usual here. Hanging out on the northern end of the Emory campus, this hotel has strong resort-style vibes, created with the help of a cozy outdoor firepit, on-site bowling alley and plenty of trails for hiking, jogging and biking. The king-size rooms are enhanced with ergonomic workstations, a wrap-around balcony and views of the Hahn Woods.

2. The University Inn at Emory

If you want to stay as close as possible to the Emory campus, the University Inn is right across the road. As well thought out as a college essay, the deluxe double room has two beds, a microwave and a small refrigerator big enough for a six-pack of beer. If you want a little more space, we recommend graduating to the king suite.

4. Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center

Got a graduate choosing between colleges? Stay at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center to learn more about both. The junior suite feels like a proper home from home with its extra living space, separate bedroom and kitchenette, while the pool and fitness center give your grad time to clear their head and consider their options. If they choose Georgia Tech, they can even print out their application at the business center, and hand-deliver it to the university admissions office right across the street.

5. Hotel Clermont

Nostalgic for your college days at Emory? Relive them with a twist at Hotel Clermont. Grab three friends and kick back in one of its bunk rooms. Drink your way from the dark and delicious Lobby Bar all the way up to the astroturfed Rooftop for street food and beers. Continue the night with vino at the Bookhouse Pub, drinks at Dugan’s and boozy karaoke at the Local. If you wake up on the floor, you’ll appreciate the fresh coffee at Cafe Clermont all the more.

6. Wylie Hotel

The Wylie is a genteel hotel with a touch of Southern splendor, handily located for the Fox Theatre. Mrs P’s Bar & Kitchen is on hand to give you a taste of Atlanta cuisine, while pour-over coffee and tea in your classic suite will get you in the mood for a relaxing walk through Historic Fourth Ward Park, a green oasis where you’ll find the Atlanta Artisans Market.

7. Glenn Hotel, Autograph Collection

Boutique Hotel, Chain Hotel

Flocking to Atlanta for a Falcons game? Glenn Hotel is two minutes away as the crow flies. While the Dirty Birds dominate the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, 39 stone lions watch over the Glenn from their perch atop the hotel. You can even spot the skyline and Centennial Olympic Park from your deluxe suite.

8. The Georgian Terrace Hotel

So close to the Fox Theatre you can practically see the stage from the rooftop pool, the Georgian Terrace Hotel is a grand place to stay; F Scott Fitzgerald and President Calvin Coolidge are among those who have stayed here in the past. The spacious suites have luxe vibes and downtown views. Sink into the subterranean watering hole Edgar’s Proof & Provision for house bourbon. Don’t take down too many fingers, though, as you still need to make it across the street by curtain call.
