Shopping Options

  • Little 5 Points (3.0 mi).  Your one stop for indie shopping and entertainment venues.  Catch a show, grab some vinly, see the work of up and coming artists.
  • Peachtree Center (0.2 mi).  This mall is located adjacent to the hotel and has both shopping and food options.  You can access the mall without going outdoors via the Sky Bridge:
    • Take the Sky Bridge on the second floor leading over to the Marriott Marquis.
    • Take escalators up two levels.
