73 soaring stories high, The Westin Peachtree Plaza towers over the Atlanta city skyline. Conceived by famed architect , John Portman - it opened as the tallest hotel in the world in 1977. While that lofty status has since been eclipsed, views from the wall of windows in an upper level hotel room are still second-to-none. A unique part of Atlanta’s colorful history for nearly four decades, it’s a terrific vacation option for travelers who wish to experience the best our city has to offer. It’s also a wonderful Atlanta staycation destination for local families.
On-site, The Westin Peachtree Plaza is home to the renowned and revolving Sun Dial Restaurant. Kids love getting all dolled up and zipping up, story-after-story, in a glass elevator to an unsurpassed 360 degree bird’s eye view of the city. Another popular hotel amenity for families is the year-round heated indoor pool on the 11th floor. When booking their stay, parents can also request that their kids be “inducted” to the Westin Kids Club. At check-in, their children will receive a tote bag full of gifts including their own room key, a make-your-own postcard kit, a great hat, and more.
