Rome is a city in Georgia, located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains about 70 miles northwest of Atlanta. The city takes its name from the well-known Italian hub, being built in the midst of seven hills, just as its namesake was. Located conveniently at the confluence of the Etowah and Oostanaula Rivers, Rome rose to prominence as an important cotton trading city. Rome, GA hotels are the perfect place to experience the southern charm of Appalachia while maintaining easy access to Atlanta.
Cruise into Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and decide on your path to Rome. They say all roads lead to Rome, but unfortunately that's not the case with this particular Rome, and you won't be able to reach your destination via public transportation. However, there are some private shuttles that offer service between northwestern Georgia and the airport, or you could rent a car to drive up to Rome (and take your time to see sights along the way). Just follow the signs to the covered walkway at the western end of the terminal and ride the ATL SkyTrain five minutes to the rental car center. Once you've arrived and settled into your choice of hotels in Rome, GA, head over to Oak Hill, a gorgeous Greek revival mansion and estate that was once home to Martha Berry, founder of Berry College. The Martha Berry Museum provides insight into her work in education. Don't neglect to book one of the cheap hotels in Atlanta for a night or two. With the capital so close, it would be a shame to miss your opportunity to explore the Atlanta Botanical Garden, which is considered one of the best in the United States.
