For a quick afternoon meal nearby, we recommend one of the many restaurants on Broad St., just south of the hotel and one street west of Woodruff Park:
NaanStop — Tin Drum Asia Café — Dua Vietnamese Noodle Soup — Blossom Tree (closed Sat.) — Reuben’s Deli — Rosa’s Pizza (closed Sat.). Or you could take a longer walk, eastward on Edgewood Ave. to the unique Sweet Auburn Curb Market, which houses Grindhouse Killer Burgers and more.
If you have a little more time and an appetite but still want to walk, you might consider restaurants a bit further but still in the general area of the hotel:
