In the Heart of It All

Downtown Atlanta experienced an architectural renaissance in the 1960s, catalyzed largely by local legend John Portman. Soon, the world took on his innovative, neo-futuristic flourishes, including massive interior atria and long, glassy elevators. Our neighborhood boasts some of Portman’s earliest works, including the global marketplace AmericasMart and Peachtree Center (not to mention, the hotel you’re staying in).

But architectural wonders are not the only reason to stay at Hotel Indigo Atlanta Downtown. We provide the perfect base to visit the city, with easy access to some of its best sights, including AmericasMart, Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, and Centennial Olympic Park.

Here are some of the best.
