You don’t always have to go to a completely different city, state, or country for a great family vacation. In fact, there are plenty of awesome hotels to stay at around Alpharetta for a wonderful family staycation instead. Staying in a hotel just minutes from home may sound silly, but this experience can add a little novelty to visiting your family’s favorite local destinations and exploring new ones you haven’t tried yet.
That’s why Crème de la Crème of Alpharetta on Nesbit Ferry Road has put together a list of the best family-friendly hotels and nearby attractions. Here are five hotels around the Alpharetta and Greater Atlanta area to get your staycation planning started.
Hilton Alpharetta Atlanta
Stick close to home with a stay at the Hilton Alpharetta Atlanta. This hotel is right off of 19/Turner McDonald Parkway, the main drag that takes you all the way up to Cumming or down to Atlanta through areas like Sandy Springs. If you plan to visit any fun spots around those areas, this hotel is a convenient spot.
The same goes if you want to explore what Alpharetta has to offer. This hotel is minutes away from Webb Bridge Park, which is home to sports fields, a scenic lake, an arboretum, and beautiful outdoor space for a family picnic or stroll through the park. You’re also minutes from Big Creek Greenway’s Marconi entrance, so you’re super close to the 9-mile-long concrete trail that traverses through nature along Big Creek.
The Hilton Alpharetta Atlanta features lots of family-friendly amenities, including an outdoor pool, perfect for cooling off after a hike or getting some sun, and an on-site restaurant (though this hotel is close to some of Alpharetta’s best eats).
Holiday Inn Express & Suites Atlanta-Johns Creek
Right off of 141, the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Atlanta-Johns Creek is just north of Johns Creek. This main drag takes you down to Peachtree Corners or up to Big Creek, so these areas are super accessible from this hotel. Plus, you’re close to the Chattahoochee, with Chattahoochee Point Park minutes away. It’s also a quick drive from Autrey Mill Nature Preserve to the southeast. For the avid golfers in your family, they’ll love being close to four country clubs and golf courses. Kids of all ages will love a day at XtremeHopp indoor trampoline park.
This hotel has a free breakfast buffet and continental breakfast included, so you don’t have to spend extra on eating the most important meal of the day. You can also get cribs and rollaway beds for little ones to sleep more comfortably.
Comfort Suites Alpharetta/Roswell
The Comfort Suites Alpharetta/Roswell is between our hometown and the neighboring city of Roswell. It’s located between highways 140 and 400, so you can quickly head to places like Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, and Buckhead to the south.
This hotel is right in the middle of the action, being just a few minutes from top-notch live entertainment at Ameris Bank Amphitheatre, or family fun at TopGolf, Dave & Busters, and Skyzone trampoline park. Outdoorsy families will love this hotel for its proximity to the Chattahoochee Nature Center and parts of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. Families who want to shop til they drop can head right across the street to North Point Mall. This family-friendly hotel offers free breakfast, a great money saver, and large suites for families of all sizes.
Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead
Need to stay a little closer to Atlanta? Want a little luxury? Then stay at the Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead. This hotel is right near Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza Mall with all of its high-end shops and fantastic eats. A stay here puts you near museums like the Atlanta History Center and the Swan House, a sweet experience at Candytopia, and family fun at the Painted Pin bowling alley. You’re also a few exits from Midtown and Downtown Atlanta and sights like the World of Coca-Cola, Puttshack Atlanta, and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia.
The Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead is amazingly family-friendly, with an indoor pool that’s perfect for splashing around after a long day exploring, a spa for winding down and getting pampered, and an on-site restaurant and room service so you don’t have to leave to get delicious food. Plus, this hotel allows you to bring pets, so you can bring your furry family member for the staycation, too.
Loews Atlanta Hotel
Have your staycation in Atlanta at Loews Atlanta Hotel, which is located in Midtown right across from Georgia Tech. That makes it a great spot to stay if you’ve got tickets to a Yellow Jackets football game. You can also enjoy Piedmont Park and the beautiful Atlanta Botanical Gardens, both of which are located right across the street.
If you’re looking for some edutainment, visit the Center for Puppetry Arts, a museum and performance center housing world-famous puppets and putting on fantastic puppet shows the whole family will love. The Georgia Aquarium is one of the best in the nation, and the World of Coca-Cola is a fascinating museum exploring the brand’s history. Both are near downtown, which is just minutes away.
The Loews Atlanta Hotel is packed with amazing family-friendly amenities, including complimentary coloring books and crayons as well as cribs for your littlest kiddos. There’s also a spa on-site so your whole family can get pampered, and an on-site restaurant.
While some of these hotels have temporarily suspended kid-friendly events and activities, many of them have a history of providing kids’ clubs, family events, and other activities that make your stay that much more special. Be sure to check the hotels’ event calendars and call the hotel to check if they’ve reinstated these amenities.
