July 4 at The Whitley
A famed Atlanta tradition, the Peachtree Road Race is a celebrated event for locals and travelers everywhere, and includes approximately 60,000 runners from all over the world. We are fortunate to have a front row seat at the starting line, which begins on Peachtree Road right in front of the hotel!
In preparation for the race, please be advised of the following:
Peachtree Road will close at 12 a.m. midnight between Lenox Road and Around Lenox Parkway
All other road closures:
4:30 a.m. on July 4 for vehicular traffic
6:00 a.m. on July 4 for foot traffic
We anticipate the roads to open after 11 a.m. July 4.
The MARTA train will be available during this time. The Buckhead MARTA is approximately 0.4 miles away from The Whitley. This will be your only option for transportation during this time. We recommend giving yourself ample time to commute to/from your destination due to the road closures and crowd in the area.
If you are planning to cheer on the runners, please join us from 7 – 11 a.m. at Trade Root on the terrace, where we will be offering a Grab n’Go Breakfast, Fresh Cold Pressed Juice Bar, Bloody Mary and Sparkle Bar, and a live DJ will be spinning some tunes. A breakfast buffet will be available inside. It’s a PARTY ON PEACHTREE!
