Something for everyone: Atlanta attractions
Founded in 1837 at the end of a railroad line, Atlanta’s come a long way from its original moniker, Marthasville. The Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement are both woven into the city’s rich historical tapestry, while the future shines brightly with growth, diversity and endless potential.
Kimpton Sylvan Hotel is proud to be part of the scene in an exclusive enclave within Atlanta’s most glamorous neighborhood, Buckhead. From the doorstep of our hotel, you can walk to refined shopping, trendy restaurants and robust commerce taking place in skyscrapers housing Fortune 500 companies. Buckhead, in turn, grants you quick passage to artsy Midtown, energetic Downtown, and the Myriad of museums, cultural attractions, historical centers, sports venues and outdoor exhilaration.
But even in this urban locale there’s natural beauty to behold. Atlanta is one of the most densely forested cities in the country. Hundreds of public parks, preserves and gardens dot the map, giving locals and visitors alike a daily experience with nature. Kimpton Sylvan is lucky enough to have nearly 5,000 square feet of mature gardens and trees for guests to enjoy. In fact, our verdant refuge is part of the reason we chose the name Sylvan, the roots of which are tied to the word “woods.”
