The Glenn is known for its giant SkyLounge rooftop bar, which sits in the center of Midtown and offers an uninterrupted view of Atlanta’s urban forest. The Downtown location is perfect for visitors attending concerts or sporting events at Philips Arena, but the coordinates of this hotel are special for reasons of historical significance as well. Named for Atlanta’s 31st mayor, John Thomas Glenn, the building arrived in 1923 and replaced the home of a Confederate army major whose home was spared during the famous Atlanta fire that decimated much of the city during General Sherman’s march. The limestone façade and terra cotta detailing at the base and top floors add style to what appears to be a somewhat brutal exterior, but the bright, leafy colors found inside the rooms, and dimmed lighting that provides a subdued mood upon entry, offer a timeless welcome to the city and historic neighborhood.
