You said yes to the love of your life, discovered your dream venue, and found a delicious catering company, but there’s another aspect missing for your special day: the hotel. If you and your guests are from out-of-town, every Athens’ hotel offers a different experience. Whether you prefer to stay downtown or on UGA’s campus, Athens is home to unique hotels that truly capture the heart of the Classic City.

Blast back to Athens’ past at the Graduate Athens. This eclectic hotel is located behind downtown and less than a mile from The Arch. It is nestled next to The Foundry, a music venue that doubles as a restaurant, and Iron Works Coffee, a coffee and juice bar. If you need to relax before your big day, head to the full service spa or twenty-four hour gym, or, when the weather is warm, bask in the sun in the saltwater pool. The Graduate Athens is also pet friendly, just in case your puppy is a part of your wedding party, too. Check out all Graduate Athens has to offer at
