The Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta is an unexpected child-friendy hotel in the heart of downtown Atlanta. It’s strategically located right near some of my favorite Atlanta spots: The High Museum of Art, the Puppetry Center of Arts, Piedmont Park, the GA Aquarium, the William Brennan Jewish Heritage and Holocaust Museum and not far from the highway to Virginia Highlands.
Before checking in to the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, you will be asked the names and ages of your children. Your kids will be treated to a small toy from a wagon and then find milk and cookies waiting for them in your room. They will also find child-sized bathrobes in your room.
The rooms are spacious and ideal for a family. The hotel offers video games, board games and movies to entertain the kids. The swimming pool is a beautiful, luxurious experience for everyone. The decor is majestic, complete with Roman sculptures and marble. The water is warm and the jacuzzi relaxing.
Unlike some other luxury hotels, the kid friendly Atlanta Four Seasons has children’s items like vegetable stick with ranch, ‘ants on a log’ celery sticks with peanut butter and raisins or grilled cheese sandwiches on their kid’s menus that are available in their restaurants and in room service. Apparently, real children created the menu. They also have a “Kids in the Kitchen” program where children can head into the kitchen for a cookies class with the Executive Chef.
If you’re planning to be in Atlanta during the holidays, they offer a few treats for kids. ”Nutcracker Teas” will be offered in partnership with the Atlanta Ballet on December 4, 11 and 18 from 2:30-5pm. The afternoon includes a traditional tea service featuring a variety of 14 different loose-leaf teas, accompanied with a sampling of delicious finger sandwiches, house-made scones and decadent bite-size desserts. The Atlanta Ballet will perform selections from their version of “The Nutcracker”.
The Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta is located at 75 Fourteenth Street Atlanta, GA 30309. The telephone number is 404-881-9898.
