Hampton Inn Alpharetta/Roswell (Prices & Photos)
It’s a Hampton Inn, and it’s a solid choice like nearly all Hampton Inns are. It also happens to come in lighter on the wallet. There’s something nice about an occasional stay at a chain hotel—you know what to expect, breakfast is almost always included, and rates are more predictable. The simple pool area surrounded by Georgia foliage is a nice touch. Just sit back, have a craft beer and chill.

A shuttle will take you around to all of the attractions like amazing malls, and the onsite restaurant serves a New York Strip and baked potato dinner that’s hard to compete with. Breakfast will cost around $13 and comes with some darn good coffee. Guests love the homey touch of warm cookies and the fact that Starbucks is within walking distance.
Hampton Inn and Suites Alpharetta (Prices & Photos)
What can we say, Hampton Inn is killing it in Alpharetta, with another establishment that nearly climbs to a five-point rating on TripAdvisor. This location is a little more updated in the common areas, while some classic touches compliment the more basic and expected rooms. You’ll sleep great being a little bit further away from main roads than other lodging options, and the staff goes to the next level ensuring you have a convenient comfy stay. Maybe I’m biased, but any hotel that serves waffles for breakfast already has an edge, because waffles are delicious. Seriously though, breakfast is beyond what you’d expect, with yogurt, berries, oatmeal, ham, bacon, hash browns, eggs, cheese—so many choices.
Hilton Garden Inn North Alpharetta (Prices & Photos)
So husband wants to golf and wife wants to explore all of the shops? No problem, Hilton Garden Inn is close to supreme courses and Avalon shopping center—a free shuttle will take guests to shopping areas. Breakfast is pleasantly more formal, but still in a casual kind of way. Real plates and cutlery, not paper and plastic, are a nice touch that makes the made to order dishes and buffet selections seem more like a part of a lovely day, rather than the same run of the mill quick bite. It’s also quite helpful to the environment.

Seriously, you have to try a cinnamon roll!

And honestly, we wouldn’t judge if you are contemplating this fun package for yourself. Otherwise, you’re at a Marriott, of course all of the “normal” accommodations are on point.
