We Like to Stay Here: Omni at CNN Atlanta
Atlanta, GA
Summer Little League has ended and as we applauded and honored our young athletes summer accomplishments it was also a reminder that summer vacation is nearing an end. It was at this event that we decided to do our 2nd Staycation in Atlanta, only this time we decided to do it with three other Little League families for four nights. By including other families we agreed upon taking turns watching the children in the evening allowing for adult night out. With so many attractions to visit we also decided that each family go their own way during the day and we cam reconvene as a group later in the day and share our daytime travel experiences. After looking at so many wonderful hotel choices we all agreed that Omni at CNN was smack-dab in the center of all the attractions we wanted to visit -- within easy walking distance was the Children's Museum, Centennial Park, Luckie Marietta District, World of Coke, Georgia Aquarium, Phillips Arena, CNN Tour, World Congress Center and the Georgia Dome.

For those of us that have to travel for work, at one time or another we've checked-in to our room and have been surprised with complimentary fruit basket, bottle of wine or other amenity. Imagine the kids delight when they walked in the room to find their very own Omni Welcome Backpack that included a 32-page fold-out map, travel games, crayons and more. (This is all part of their "Omni Sensational Kids" program which we were not aware of).

The rooms were spacious with magnificent city and park views, and are beautifully furnished and comfortable; luxury bath and linens fit for a King and Queen, (with a southern accent)! The outdoor pool was a great cool-down at the end of each day for everyone, especially us guys; because when the women and children were all in the pool we snuck away to the London Olympic Games. Well actually we went to Latitudes Bistro in the hotel's South Tower, where they had themed food and beverage menus inspired by the London Events and large flat screens airing the events. A man-cave escape!
Turn-about is fair play so the next day at our 'end of the day cool down' as the men and kids were in the pool the ladies somehow escaped. Come to find out they had this well planned -- as they reappeared 2 hours later all rested and rejuvenated from their spa treatments at The Natural Body Spa located on the 6th floor.

No stay is complete at Omni CNN without a tour of CNN Studios. Don’t miss it.

Staycation for four families at the Omni, perfect!
