Most convenient Atlanta Hotels for walking to sites- safety question

Jump to last reply

My husband is taking five employees to Atlanta for a business convention. During that time they also like to sightsee.

My mom visited Atlanta last year and commented that she didn't feel very safe walking around by herself. By contrast, she visited Chicago and felt totally comfortable. (I add this just so you know it wasn't just the "big city" that was the issue for my mom).

Her comments made my husband question whether it will be a good idea to walk around with his employees-- college-age women who are not necessarily savvy travelers and may have never been to a big city.

Can you Fodorites give me your thoughts?

The preference would be to book a downtown hotel and walk to attractions like World of Coke and the aquarium. The women will likely also want to go out at night.

They will have a vehicle if it would be preferable to stay in , say, Buckhead and drive into town for tourism.

My husband feels responsible for keeping these women safe so while I have no doubt Atlanta is fine for the average Fodorite to walk around, this seems a little different.
