Convenient access to attractions, dining and entertainment are only a few reasons the Hilton Atlanta hotel is the ideal place for a weekend getaway with friends in Atlanta.

And because you asked, here are a few more as well….

1. Easy Access to Fun
Hilton Atlanta’s location in Downtown Atlanta makes it easy to walk, bike, or ride an electric scooter to many destinations in the downtown area, as well as nearby Midtown and Eastside neighborhoods. The Peachtree MARTA Station and Atlanta Streetcar are also only a block away, for quick access to other Atlanta neighborhoods and attractions.

2. Plenty of Room for Weekending
Located only a 15-minute drive from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Hilton Atlanta offers some of the best accommodations for your friends vacation in the Big A. The hotel offers spacious suites, spectacular skyline views, and its central location puts it within walking distance of popular Atlanta attractions and venues. And make sure to check out Hilton’s special weekend hotel packages and other special offers.

Pro tip: Stay overnight on Sunday and get 50% off your Sunday rate! (Nobody likes Mondays anyway.)

Located on the hotel’s top floor, Nikolai’s Roof offers epic skyline views of Atlanta and a very special atmosphere for celebrating anniversaries, birthdays and special events. If you aren’t hungry, pull up to the lounge bar for their special vodka flight.
