Coming to stay in the unofficial capital of the South? Whether you've heard about the iconic African-American history, want to visit the world's largest aquarium, or you're coming for the lush weather in 'Hotlanta', we've got the perfect home base. Let us show you some genuine Southern hospitality at Stay Alfred at Century Skyline, located on the border between Downtown Atlanta and the trendy Old Fourth Ward neighborhood.
Your private apartment features a breakfast bar, hardwood floors and huge windows that let in tons of natural light. Active guests will love the on-site gym with cardio machines and weights, and the saltwater pool on the rooftop. If you're more chill than thrill, you'll enjoy the cabana lounge and outdoor grilling stations. Throw in beautifully manicured courtyards and cozy indoor fireplaces, and we're confident you're going to feel instantly at home.
Atlanta's most desirable neighborhood
Your Stay Alfred apartment is just a 15-minute bus or metro ride from downtown attractions like SkyView Atlanta and Centennial Olympic Park. Despite the city being firmly on dry land, Georgia Aquarium is one of the biggest in the world and definitely not to be missed for its whale sharks, adorable penguin walk, and the opportunity to (literally) sleep with the fishes. In contrast, the city's other major draw is the High Museum of Art, where you see modern Atlanta at its most cutting edge with world-class exhibits of artists like Mark Rothko and Claude Monet.
The core of Atlanta's long and storied political history is the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, which hosts numerous talks and workshops and has an extraordinary interactive lunch counter sit-in that simulates the protests of the 1960s. Explore further back in time at the kid-friendly Fernbank Museum of Natural History and its 65-acre old-growth forest, or enjoy a lavish musical at the recently-restored Fox Theater.
The Old Fourth Ward district is an authentic historic neighborhood filled with trendy eateries and indy clothes stores. Grab a bite to eat from the artisan food stalls at Irwin Street Market or indulge in a decadent Southern brunch at Highland Bakery. The area's great claim to fame is as Martin Luther King's boyhood home, and you can still visit the house where he was born and the church where he first delivered his moving sermons.
The sky's the limit at Century Skyline
Everything about this sumptuous modern building is luxurious, from the high ceilings in the spacious apartments to the broad range of amenities designed to pamper you in style. It would be a shame to waste Atlanta's glorious weather by staying inside, so our guests have full access to the saltwater pool, poolside cabanas and grilling areas on the rooftop, as well as the two beautiful courtyards where you can throw a backyard barbeque.
If you need to retreat into the air-conditioning for a little while, there's a comfy cyber cafe that serves great coffee and has WiFi and an indoor fireplace. We admire anyone who manages to stick to their workout routine on the road, so we've made it just that little bit easier for you with two fully equipped fitness centers with Fitness on Demand technology. And our workaholic guests are always happy to see the business center, which even comes with a conference room attached.
Spoil yourself a little
No matter if you've got a full day of meetings scheduled or you're here to hit the sights, you’ll want to start the day off right. Make breakfast in your modern, fully-fitted kitchen with granite worktops, then fire up the coffee maker and take your cup up to the rooftop patio to watch the sun come up.
Your apartment comes with acres of closet space and an iron and ironing board, so no worries about pulling crumpled clothes out of your suitcase in the morning. We would never expect you to do the dishes – you're on vacation, after all! – which is why we've provided a dishwasher, microwave, and all the kitchenware you could possibly need.
We want you to get comfortable, which is why we've installed cable TV and high-speed WiFi in every apartment so you can unwind just like you would at home. After a long day of museums and monuments, take a long soak in the garden soaking tub in the master bathroom. And you'll sleep like a baby even on hot Atlanta nights in the climate-controlled rooms and king- and queen-sized beds fitted with premium linens.
