Featured Athens Hotels

Stay in our Holiday Inn® Athens hotels to discover this hotbed of trend-setting musicality. Athens, Georgia, calls itself the ultimate college town, but it's also a gracious Southern city of a certain age, with a sleepy pace and beautiful antebellum homes.

Book a stay at our hotels in Athens and see why it's considered a musical laboratory for budding rock stars. Live music streams out of clubs and cafes orbiting the University of Georgia campus. Pick up the free Athens Music History Walking Tour at the Athens Welcome Center, and see the legendary venues where native bands like R.E.M. and the B-52s got their start. Chartered in 1785, UG is one of the oldest universities in the country. Stroll storied Old North Campus, with crisscrossing greenswards lined with old oaks, magnolias and elks. Or spend a languid hour or two under the wisteria-clad arbors in the State Botanical Garden of Georgia-entry is free. Reopening in early 2011 after a major expansion, the Georgia Museum of Art includes works by Georgia O'Keefe, Stuart Davis, and Andrew Wyeth. If you're pressed for time, an easy and convenient way to explore the city's historic sights is on the 1-hour Classic City Tour from the Athens Welcome Center.

The city's culinary landscape is as electric as its music scene. Award-winning eateries rub shoulders with modest soul-food joints downtown, close to our Athens hotels. The city's club and bar scene reflects the local passion for music of all genres. Head downtown to the 40 Watt Club, still promoting edgy musical artists after 30 years.

Make our Athens hotels your convenient base for enjoying this Georgia college town, with a vibrant music scene in a historic Old South setting.

Guys weekend
Everything was great. I used to work in the Hotel Industry and I used to work in that industry in Athens. I did not stay at the chain I used to work for. This was my first stay at the HI in downtown [More] Athens. [Less]
Way exceeded expectations! Excellent Experience
By e716
Going into the stay I was a little nervous because I'm not from Athens and had never been to the property before. I was generally expecting the standard small hotel room with two double beds and [More] barely enough room for the roll-away bed I requested (which I expected to be a dinky little fold up cot). The actual room was extremely impressive and far surpassed my expectations! The room was huge with its own kitchen area and full sized fridge. We had more room than I have ever experienced in a hotel room outside of a suite. Additionally, the roll-away bed was actually a full fledged twin mattress and box spring which they rolled in and set up for us, not at all what I was expecting. Finally, the staff was incredibly helpful throughout our entire stay. Very accommodating, friendly, and eager to go above and beyond. I also really loved the small convenience shop located off the lobby and available 24/7. [Less]
Very Nice
By smarti2
It was a wonderful stay. My FBLA members really enjoyed the nice big rooms. We all would have liked to have had a continental breakfast for the price. We were impressed with the fact you had games [More] for the kids to check out to use for that evening. [Less]
Pleasantly Surprised
By jason430
I really enjoyed my stay here. I was surprised by the size of the room and the kitchen area. The tv was nice and the internet was pretty decent but I did not care for the unsecured network. The [More] recliner in the room was a nice touch as well. The hotel was hard to find and would have been difficult had someone not already told me how to find it. All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel to someone and will be staying here again if buisness sends me near there. [Less]
hip place
By 12321i423ltn,eafkljsr
good location and set-up. This is certainly one of the "higher end" options when visiting Athens. [Less]
First Visit to Athens, Ga.
By Hospital Pre-op Patient
The bathroom light switches were only available from one entrance to the bathroom. From the bedroom side, but not from the living room side. Would have preferred both. [Less]
Nice Stay
Everything was comfortable and staff completely courteous. [Less]
