    Getaways At The Marriott Evergreen Hotel Conference Center and Spa Resort

    It’s rare for us to fly to our vacation destination. We prefer to pack the car and hit the road where we can explore America’s backyard. On the way back home to Indiana from our vacation in Florida we decided to break up our 15 hour drive and stop over outside of Atlanta. We were surprised when we arrived at the beautiful Marriott Evergreen Hotel Conference Center and Spa Resort tucked within Georgia’s magnificent Stone Mountain Park. Not only are the grounds and setting relaxing, the staff are on-hand to greet you and make you feel right at home from the moment you arrive, which is wonderful when you are a bit worn out from the road.

    We arrived in the midst of preparations for a large wedding and a high school reunion. Laughter and cheerful greetings echoed throughout the elegant lobby which has a Starbuck’s, a unique gift shop, and local information available for guests. In addition to weddings and social gatherings, the Marriott Evergreen Hotel Conference Center and Spa Resort, located at 4021 Lakeview Drive in Stone Mountain, GA also has plenty of Conference space to accommodate large meetings, corporate retreats, and is a favorite destination in the area for family escapes.

    Stone Mountain Park is one of Georgia’s great attractions for families and groups. With the Marriott Evergreen Hotel Conference Center and Spa Resort located on-site we were able to partake in the wonderful amenities the resort offers. Among the amenities which draws guest back are the luxurious guest rooms with breathtaking views of the lake, an elegant spa, two championship golf courses, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, two fine restaurants, and a bar where we played a round of pool and shared a *bleep*tail with fellow guests.

    What makes Stone Mountain Park a great travel destination? Along with family-friendly attractions and entertainment, travelers can choose to camp in tents or their RV in the Stone Mountain Park, and relax at the Marriott Evergreen Conference Resort. There is another chose in the park as well where you can receive the same quality and comfort you've come to expect from Marriott: the Stone Mountain Inn.

    With its convenient location, the Marriott Stone Mountain Inn makes an excellent headquarters for your family vacation. This classic Southern inn is located at 1058 Robert E Lee Blvd in the park, and is within walking distance of many Stone Mountain Park attractions. The historic Marriott Stone Mountain Inn has 92-rooms, featuring Southern Hospitality, oversized guest rooms with a veranda, a courtyard swimming pool and buffet style southern cooking served in the Mountain View Restaurant, and there's the Antebellum Plantation where you can find unique gifts as well. Whether you consider camping as a night in a cozy hotel or inn, or prefer to step outside your tent or RV and gaze up at the twinkling stars in the sky, Stone Mountain Park has just the place for your upcoming family vacation.

    It's easy to enjoy all Stone Mountain has to offer and save money at the same time by printing the Free coupons from the Stone Mountain Park website. Coupons vary according to season and include specials like an Free ride on the Ducks, a unique amphibious sightseeing experience that are entertaining & interactive.
