There are hotels near downtown Atlanta that make planning a romantic getaway easy. Many have special packages and services that cater to couples. Staying in or near downtown Atlanta also puts couples close to both Piedmont Park and Centennial Olympic Park, where they can appreciate the natural surroundings and enjoy each other's company on a walk.
Any of the Four Seasons' 244 rooms or 18 suites would make a great getaway for a couple. To set the mood, couples can schedule a massage together, with a choice of two 50-minute sessions either in the hotel's spa or in a guestroom. Individual treatments also can be scheduled in one of the spa's 10 private, soundproofed treatment rooms. Fresh fruit and juice are available in a quiet room before or after treatments. Couples also can opt for the "Special Occasion" package, popular with honeymooners, that includes a bottle of chilled, sparkling wine and chocolate-covered strawberries waiting in the room, breakfast for two in the morning and valet parking. The elegant rooms, decorated in yellow, gold and cinnamon tones, include all modern amenities and plush, terrycloth bathrobes for you to sink into. Couples can enjoy a cocktail on the terrace at Park 75 on the third floor of the hotel. Park 75 overlooks the lobby and its dramatic staircases.
