Enjoy Our Downtown Hotel's Athens, GA Location

Located just two blocks from the University of Georgia campus, our hotel's facilities feature an excellent location in downtown Athens, making the Holiday Inn Express® Hotel Athens - University Area the place to stay for Bulldog fans.

When in Athens for business, our hotel's corporate guests can use the on-site Business Center whenever they please. Other amenities include six meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 200 people. We are also near several area businesses, as well as schools like UGA and the new UGA Medical School.

Besides being near the University of Georgia, our hotel's guests also find themselves close to the vibrant downtown area, so it's easy to enjoy the shopping, dining and entertainment for which Athens is justifiably famous. While in the area, set aside an afternoon to explore the State Botanical Gardens of Georgia or to tour the Taylor-Grady House. At the end of the day, attend a spectacular show at The Classic Center. If you're in the mood to go shopping, you'll be pleased to know we're near the Georgia Square Mall.

Before beginning their day in Athens, our hotel's guests can "Stay Smart" and visit the complimentary, hot Express Start Breakfast Bar, which we serve every morning. We also provide free high-speed, wireless Internet access throughout the hotel, and we have an outdoor pool and Fitness Center on-site. Book today to take advantage of great deals and rates!

Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 370 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Customer Service the ONLY thing that i would like to be different or to change is to have an exhaust fan in the bathroom. It was difficult to get the bathroom cooled down/steam cleared out after a shower. August 31, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn in Athens The staff were accommodating and courteous. I appreciate their willingness to help and assist visitors. There were a variety of choices for breakfast. The parking lot is not acceptable. It is very hilly and tight in between spaces. August 31, 2015
