Embassy Suites Atlanta at Centennial Olympic Park
Adjacent to the Georgia Aquarium and just around the corner from the Georgia Dome, Philips Arena, and CNN Center, this all-suite hotel has been popular with vacationing families since it first opened in 1999. While the red brick facade does little to distinguish the exterior architecture, such is not the case inside, where the naturally lit atrium area features "Echo," a three-dimensional, steel cable-suspended tarpon inspired by the aquarium. On-site dining can go in two directions: the casual deli, which offers picnic boxes, and the more upscale Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
