Top Reasons to Consider an Inn Over a Hotel Chain

Last updated 6 years ago

When you are visiting the Atlanta area, whether for sightseeing or to tour the Emory University campus, you will need a great place to stay. You could choose a generic chain hotel like you’d find in any other city, or you could choose an inn - with local flavor and Southern charm. Here are some of the top reasons to stay at an inn instead of a hotel chain: 

Personalized Service

When you stay at a local inn, you'll get the amenities you'd expect from an Atlanta hotel with the personal attention you desire. The smaller size of an inn means you won't get lost in a sea of guests—the staff at the inn can greet you by name and welcome you back from your adventures each day. 

Relaxing Environment

Unlike a chain hotel, you'll find peace, quiet, and relaxation at an inn in the Emory area. A smaller inn with fewer guests will make for quieter nights, making it easier for you to get a good night’s sleep after a day full of sightseeing or business meetings in the area. 

Pet Friendly

While many chain hotels won't allow you to bring your pets, local inns tend to be pet friendly. Boarding a dog while you are away on a trip can be costly, as well as stressful for pets and owners alike. Bringing your pet with you on your next visit to a local inn will keep both of you happy throughout the trip. 

Local Flavor

To get the full experience of the city you have chosen to visit, it only makes sense to pick a hotel that represents the city’s unique flavor. Everything you'll find in a great local inn, from the architecture to the artwork to the food, is representative of the locale. In Atlanta, you can experience Southern hospitality at its best at a local inn. 

At the University Inn At Emory, you'll find the personalized service and the amenities you want during your stay in Atlanta. Call us at (404) 465-3549 for reservations today.
