We decided to stay close to our son for Thanksgiving and choose this perfect spot. In addition to the proximity perk, the place was a gem: beautiful architecture, peaceful setting, clean rooms and accomodating staff. Because we love to walk, we were especially impressed with the two opportunities to commune with nature so close to Atlanta! Within walking distance of the hotel were two hiking spots. Who knew the president of Emory lived on such spectacular grounds and we could share the beauty! A wedding took place that weekend at the hotel and I can see why they selected the ECCH. The courtyard was tailor made for wedding pictures. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We drove and there were no additional parking fees!
