After my trip to Nashville, I jetted off to Atlanta.  This was in large part due to a non-refundable car rental mistake I made, though I was excited to visit the World of Coca-Cola: Atlanta Museum and Tourist Attraction.

I only had plans to stay one night in Atlanta, before driving to my next destination. The trip was planned with a number of “hotel hopping” in mind. Since I wanted to be of walking distance to the Coca-Cola museum, I booked a night stay at the Hyatt Place Atlanta (Centennial Park)

Hyatt Place (Centennial Park)

I haven’t stayed at many Hyatt properties often, but for the times that I did, I’ve always liked that the stays at Hyatt are very consistent. You’d know what to expect.  That was my experience here as well.

Check in was smooth and uneventful. Note that only valet parking is available at this property (no self-parking)

Hotel Room

The Hyatt Place is clean, bright, and familiar, with the familiar divider common at Hyatt Place.

Hyatt Place offers complimentary breakfast and there is plenty of tables in the lobby/dining area.

Due to the pandemic, the complimentary breakfast options were packaged, including the pre-packaged Jimmy Dean Sausage, Egg and cheese sandwich.

The Hyatt Place has a pool, though I didn’t see anyone using it during my visit.  I was not surprised because the water looked murky.

Around the area

The hotel is located in a convenient and very walk-able location.  It’s right by the Centennial Park:

The hotel is within walking distance of other famous attractions in the area.  These include the Georgia Aquarium and the College Football Hall of Fame, and the Skyview Atlanta.

I noticed the presence of a security guard at the hotel in the early evening so I don’t if the area is unsafe after dark.  That said, I didn’t feel unsafe walking around during the day time.  I think the hotel is clean and the staff at the hotel are nice and professional.  The best feature is still its convenient location situated in the center of major tourist attractions.  It was perfect for what I needed, which is a one night stay.


What was your experience at this hotel?  Are there any nearby hotels you may recommend when visiting some of these major attractions in Atlanta?
