Amidst all of your wedding planning, booking a unique place to stay on your wedding night may have slipped your mind. Staying somewhere special and unique after your wedding is important, but can be stressful to find. If you’ve decided to get married in Atlanta or fly out of Hartsfield-Jackson Airport for your honeymoon the next day, the grunt work has been done for you. Here is my list of the top places you’ll want to consider staying on your wedding night.
Hotel Clermont is located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, right on Ponce de Leon Avenue. The hotel was built in 1924 and is a historical treasure! You will feel like you are walking back in time with its unique, quirky, vintage style. They have a variety of rooms to choose from and a bar called Tiny Lou’s on the rooftop. A perfectly romantic place to stay. It’s is right down the street from Ponce City Market, which would be a fun breakfast stop. I’d recommend a meal at Pancake Social and a cup of coffee at Dancing Goats or Spiller Park before you leave for your honeymoon. (P.S. Hotel Clermont is so cool, I would recommend bringing your photographer along for a wedding night or wedding morning shoot!)
The Wylie Hotel is very new and very cool. It also is a historical building and has a vintage flair, but in a much more minimal, classic sort-of-way. The hotel prides themselves in their charm and their ability to make every guest feel comfortable. Sounds perfect to me! It’s also close to Atlanta landmarks such as Ponce City Market, the Georgia Aquarium, and the Beltline…if you have time to spare! Alongside your hotel reservation, I’d recommend making a reservation for breakfast at their in-house restaurant, Mrs. P’s!
The Sylvan Hotel is a Mid-Century Modern DREAM. Just trust me! Originally built in 1952, it’s a newly imagined boutique hotel that is surrounded by skyscrapers as well as a ton of trees. There are multiple places to eat and drink within, including a starlit rooftop bar. Grab breakfast at The Betty and a drink before bed at St. Julep. You won’t regret the Buckhead experience!
The Marriott Marquis is a really fun experience after your wedding. Architecturally, the building is incredible, boasting 52 floors and a really unique design. I am a bit biased to this one because this is the hotel my now husband booked for us for our wedding night. We had a fun experience and loved staying right in the middle of the city.
This Atlanta Treehouse is an absolute dream. Who wouldn’t want to stay in this romantic location on their wedding night? There are three rooms literally in the middle of trees and is an intimate, private retreat for two. The best part is it’s right in the middle of the city, but doesn’t feel like it at all! The only thing to keep in mind is it is open to the elements, so make sure that’s the best decision for you and your partner depending on the time of year.
The Atlanta Alpaca Treehouse is, you guessed it, is surrounded by Alpacas. It’s really a whole experience! The treehouse is absolutely magical and would be the perfect, adventurous place to stay on your wedding night. This treehouse has actually been featured on Netflix’s “Worlds Most Amazing Vacation Rentals” and “Love is Blind”. Crazy right? All in the city of Atlanta, you will experience a treehouse under the stars with alpacas and roosters crowing to wake you up. It’s truly wild!
Stonehurst Place was built in 1896 and is rich with history! It is a Bed and Breakfast, so there are less rooms to choose from, but it is simply gorgeous. It’s warm neutral walls and decor are peace-giving after a crazy wedding day. I’d recommend breakfast at The Lawrence, right nearby, before you head off to your honeymoon.
Sparrow Hill Inn is the most charming, Southern Bed and Breakfast. It’s beautiful and classic and just a sweet place to stay on your wedding night. This is the only location on the list that is not directly in Atlanta, it’s about an hour outside of Atlanta. But if you want a small town, Southern experience…this is for you! The town of Monroe is absolutely adorable with new restaurants, coffee, and shops. I’d recommend grabbing coffee from Coffee Camper Co. before you leave in the morning.
The Ritz Carlton is always the right about of boujee, right? And if you’re like me, boujee is really nice sometimes. It’s exactly what we know the Ritz to be, simply luxurious. The rooms are large and have panoramic Atlanta skyline views.
