So excited to have a new Taylor Swift tune today!!  And it’s perfect that it came at the beginning of the school year because while the summer was drama-free, I’m fairly certain school will not be.  :(

What to do about all the haters?  Shake it off!!  I love it!!

(Of course, I’ve been telling Ariel that for years but now that Taylor Swift is saying it…..!)

Ideal Family Hotel: Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Downtown

It’s always scary picking a hotel sight-unseen.  Is it really a place you want to stay?  Are the rooms clean and spacious?  Is the property well-kept?  Are the staff members nice?  How about safety?  Is the parking well-lit and secure?  What about convenience?  How close is the hotel to what you are planning to do?

What’s a mom to do?  Well, it helps if you can find reviews, like this one.  ;)

It also helps to find maps of the area, so you can plot out everything in the area.

When Ariel and I started planning our quick getaway to Atlanta, I pored over everything I could find about the area surrounding our desired attractions.  We had decided that visiting the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola topped our list (aided by the fact that they are adjacent to one another) and that we’d also love to experience Zoo Atlanta.  To avoid driving in city traffic and paying parking fees at various places, I wanted to stay within walking distance of the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola.

There are a lot of hotels in the surrounding Luckie-Marietta District (because of the streets bordering the blank block section of downtown).  We were excited to see the Olympic Park and Sky View were within walking distance of GA and WOCC.  The district also boasts shopping and dining opportunities galore.

But upon closer examination, one hotel stood out from all the rest:  Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Atlanta.  Why?  Because it is NEXT DOOR to the Georgia Aquarium!!  Can’t get much closer than that!!
