We enjoyed a perfect stay at the Shellmont Inn during a recent getaway weekend in Atlanta. Ed and Debbie McCord made our stay warm and inviting, and were the perfect hosts. The house was amazing, the room was enchanting, and the breakfasts were fabulous.

My husband and I were married over Thanksgiving weekend utilizing the Shellmont Inn's "Elopement Package". Everything was perfect! Debbie and Ed helped with the details both big and small. While our ceremony was performed in the main house, we actually stayed in the Carriage House. The bed was very comfortable and the big jacuzzi bathtub was wonderful! We really enjoyed... More

I stayed at Shellmont Inn from October 4-8. I was in Atlanta for a conference that was about a mile away, so it was very convenient to the location.

My wife and I have been frequent guests of the Shellmont over the last 5 years (Tech season tickets) and just now started our 6th year this last weekend. It is amazing how Midtown has changed over the last ten years with respect to events and dining, and the Shellmont remains a unique place in the heart of Midtown. If... More

Don't count on off street parking as the garage is small and cannot accommodate many cars but over the holiday weekend we were lucky and had no problem with parking on Piedmont. The location was excellent easily accessible to MARTA and Uber on demand. Debbie was helpful with directions and offered nice recommendations on restaurants and activities. I understand older...

Check in took a while. There was no place to park on 6th St. and if we double parked to unload our luggage we would have blocked the road.

Labor Day weekend is one of the busiest of the year for our Inn as Atlanta hosts over 1 million visitors to our city proper. The Mayors' Office suggests locals and tourist alike take MARTA, Uber or taxis. Check-in takes about 10 minutes to familiarize our guests with the Inn, garage, gardens and their accommodations.

From check in to check out, everything at the Shellmont is perfection. Debbie and Ed are the perfect hosts and made us feel right at home. Our rooms were beautifully decorated and had wonderfully updated bathrooms. Coffee was available right outside our rooms in the morning and breakfast downstairs was delicious.
