What is the area around the Westin Peachtree Hotel like? Are there plenty of restaurants, bars, or other site seeing things?

Thanks!

Assuming this is the downtown Westin, it's near a lot of tourist attractions but not really in an area with great restaurants and bars. You'll be a 15 minute walk or a MARTA stop from CNN Center, the Aquarium, World of Coke, Centennial Park, Philips Arena, Georgia Done. However, the downtown area is filled wiht business people and conventioners during the day and is a ghost town at night. You'll find more bars and restaurants in Midtown or the Virginia Highlands.

Thank you...we'll be there for the afternoon before the Peach Bowl and then just leaving in the AM. If there was one attraction in the area to do that Friday afternoon, what would you suggest? And is there is maybe one restaurant in the area for a early Friday night dinner before the game?

Thank you so much!

Westin peachtree is on Peachtree street in the heart of downtown.

Centennial Olympic Park/GA Aquarium/CNN Center are 3 blocks downhill to the west (a 5 minute walk, not a 15 mniute one).

Right around the hotel there are a number of restaurants/bars like the Hard Rock and Hooters.

For a meal try Rays in the City or if you like Mexican Mama Ninfa's.

If you have time for only one attraction then I would do the Georgia Aquarium. You'll need a couple of hours and will want to probably get a ticket ahead of time but it is worth it. You can walk down the hill and through Centennial Olympic Park to reach it.
