We recently escaped the hustle and bustle of the summer with a visit to Ritz-Carlton Atlanta, located in the heart of Downtown. Whether you are enjoying a stay-cation or you’re visiting from out of town with the kids, Ritz-Carlton is always perfect for families. Here are three reasons to love Ritz-Carlton Atlanta.
Ritz Kids Program
The Ritz Kidz Program makes kids feel right at home from the moment they walk through the door. My boys were greeted warmly by the staff, and they felt so special seeing the Ritz Kids check-in sign at the front, complete with coloring pages!
Their Ritz Kids welcome package included a coloring book with crayons and a self-guided scavenger hunt through the hotel. The little guy was in love with the stickers!
The boys also enjoyed kid-friendly meals, including PB&J, French fries, and more. After dinner they indulged on cookies and milk, and enjoyed a movie from the wide selection offered. It was a perfectly relaxing escape!
Ritz Kids is free with your stay!

Proximity to Family-fun
Because you are in Downtown Atlanta, you are near almost all of the BEST family-friendly attractions in the city.
Most things not within walking distance can easily be reached via MARTA, which sits next door to the hotel.
Some of our favorite Downtown Atlanta attractions include:
- Georgia Aquarium
- World of Coca-Cola
- Atlanta Children’s Museum
- Center for Civil and Human Rights
- Centennial Olympic playground and fountains
- SkyView Ferris wheel.
You can find out entire list of recommended ways to explore in the guide for Downtown Atlanta Family Fun that we wrote in partnership with Expedia.
During our staycation, we explored Zoo Atlanta – it’s an easy Uber ride from the hotel. It’s one of the top family attractions in Georgia, and includes over 1,000 animals and 200 species. Our favorite thing was watching the Chinese pandas play!
No time to get tickets? No worries! Ritz-Carlton arranged our tickets, and they can help to make sure your Atlanta escape is just as fun!
