Nearest hotels to downtown?


My husband and I will be visiting athens on the 17th and 18th of October. We have been trying to find a hotel that is within walking distance to everything in Downtown Athens such as all the bars and restaurants. We really don't want to have to drive to and from the hotel but down want a three or four mile walk either. Is there any hotel (other than the Hilton which is full) that is relatively close?

Take a look here:


But you realize the Georgia plays Vandy that weekend, so i doubt you will have much luck with something downtown.

A hotel downtown on game day is impossible, there is a waiting list to get on. You may be able to get a place near the mall. Cabs are pretty cheap in athens and pretty quick.

You will find Athens full on game day- at least in the downtown area. You might try out on 316 or near Alps Rd. We were in Pittsburgh in early Sept. and the Steelers and Pitt Panthers were playing. No hotels available near Pitt campus or the stadium. Hope this helps.
