Local Attractions

The Buckhead neighborhood is simply Atlanta’s finest. John Whitley marked a meeting place for settlers in the woodlands of Atlanta in the 1800s. How fitting that Buckhead is now a superlative meeting place for some of the best and brightest for both business and leisure pursuits. “Close to it all” is a sentiment often heard and rarely so true as it is at The Whitley. Buckhead’s unique fusion of outdoor activities such as hiking and kayaking, world-class shopping, dining choices and tourist destinations – all within a few square miles – set it apart. The Whitley’s concierge team are area experts and will design a bespoke experience for you and your fellow adventurers.

Near to the hotel you’ll find the High Museum, the Alliance Theater, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, The World of Coca-Cola, the Georgia Aquarium, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Sun Trust Park and Philips Arena.
