Guide to Gay Friendly Hotels in Atlanta Georgia (2022 Updated)

Search and book Lesbian and Gay friendly hotels Georgia, Atlanta.

Lesbiangaybisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the United States have evolved in recent decades. However, LGBT Americans may still face some legal and many social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, particularly in states with large conservative populations, such as in the Deep South; in rural areas; and in some Native American tribal nations.

U.S. federal law does not explicitly include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are included under “sex” as a prohibited ground of employment discrimination in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Same-sex sexual activity has been legal since 1998, and same-sex marriage has been legal since 2015. In addition, the state’s largest city Atlanta, has a vibrant LGBT community and holds the biggest Pride parade in the Southeast.
Atlanta has a long history of being a  gay friendly resort and in downtown we can find a few gay friendly bars as well as  Atlanta Eagle or Felix’s Atlanta &  Blake’s On The Park are the  most famous gay bars in Atlanta, GA.
Atlanta is the capital of the U.S. state of Georgia. It played an important part in both the Civil War and the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. Atlanta History Center chronicles the city’s past, and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site is dedicated to the African-American leader’s life and times. Downtown, Centennial Olympic Park, built for the 1996 Olympics, encompasses the massive Georgia Aquarium.

I came down to ATL to be able to attend Pride in the city. I have to say I was incredibly impressed with this hotel. Each room was very unique and each of the hotel staff was quite friendly and caring. They were very helpful and gave me lots of tips. They were gay friendly and overall just a great staff. The physical building was grand, elegant and I would stay there time and time again.
We have stayed at this hotel many times and each time have thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms are stylish, clean, and comfortable. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable, and fun (that matters to me 🙂 ). It is a small little boutique hotel and always feels like my partner and I are romantically sneaking away.
And located right across the street from the Fox Theater and in the middle of many wonderful restaurant choices, so it is the perfect place for such a rendezvous to be joined by a dressy night out. We always have a blast! This last trip, we were celebrating renewing our vows at 101 Gay Weddings and same-sex marriage finally being legal in Georgia. We both agreed that there couldn’t be a better place. Sexy, romantic, chic, elegant, all in all fabulous.
The Indigo is a decent bet is you want a comfortable, moderately-priced hotel in midtown Atlanta.

Location: NOTE: There are two Indigos in Atlanta – make sure you tell taxi drivers etc. which one you mean. This Indigo is about 20 minutes from the airport in light traffic, and is conveniently located on the main drag of the Midtown neighborhood. The Fox Theatre is across the street, and several coffee shops, restaurants, and shops are a 10-15 minute walk along Peachtree Street NE.

Rooms: My room was an average size; the bathroom was functional, but tiny. The bed was excellent – extremely comfortable. My room was quiet, even though I faced Peachtree Street. The hotel is probably about due for a refresh, but everything was clean and functional. If your room feels cold, check the heater – mine was set to “cool” instead of “warm,” even as the city braced for snow.

Service: There is a relaxed, friendly atmosphere at the hotel, and staff members were welcoming and attentive. Check-in and check-out were speedy. There were long waits for one elevator while the other one was being painted one evening, just as many guests returned from a conference.

Overall, I had a good experience with the Indigo, and would stay there again.

The hotel has been renovated, with a neat modern design for the lobby floor and restaurant (featuring images of information for shows presumably at the Fox Theater, which is just across the street), and shabby chic for the rooms. The rooms are small, but those who enjoy European hotels will enjoy the rooms. The bathrooms are quite elegant (especially the shower which was quite large compared to typical European), and the room itself has all the modern amenities (WiFi, USB power outlets for charging). The beds and furniture are new and very comfortable.
The food was varied and very well prepared. The price was very reasonable, considering it is the middle of a major city. The staff was very friendly. I be going back there when I have another outing in Atlanta. It was easy to find the hotel travelling north on Peachtree Street– a sign directs you to turn off Peachtree St and there is a check-in parking circle at the back of the hotel.Parking is available in the parking garage of an adjacent hotel at $25/day, which I took advantage of. Before dinner, I enjoyed a wine and people watching on the terrace in front viewing Peachtree street.

A sleek restaurant serves contemporary American dishes, and there’s a cafe and a bar. A rooftop pool offers panoramic city views, and meeting and event space is available.

A Midtown icon, The Georgian Terrace Hotel is located in the heart of Atlanta’s business and cultural district, across from the Fox Theatre. The hotel delivers a brand of service rarely found – southern hospitality at its finest. When you stay with us – you are home. We’re set to please with everything from big modern suites to versatile event and meeting spaces.
The room was very spacious with a kitchen and a full sized washer and dryer in the bathroom. It’s a very easy walk to use MARTA, a late night sports bar with delicious food and a very friendly gay bar called Blake’s. While the hotel itself always seemed busy with guests on the go, noise never was an issue.
. My room had a full size kitchen and washer & dryer. I didn’t really need it on a two night stay, but it was nice to know if I needed it it was there. The furniture was somewhat outdated. They have tempur-pedic mattresses and didn’t think it was too comfortable. I have a feeling it was flipped wrong because the side that was up was extremely firm. The balcony was very small, about 3 by 6 feet. Good, I guess, if you are a smoker. Free internet access.
Valet parking was around $20. There are many interesting facts about the Terrace that I wish the hotel would elaborate on. Many celebrities and presidents have stayed here. Margaret Mitchell delivered Gone WIth the Wind to the publisher on the front steps. I took the Margaret Mitchell House tour and really enjoyed it (within walking distance)
There are many good restaurants also within walking distance. It does seem to be a large gay population as you get closer to 10th st.
I had a great stay at the Georgian Terrace. I was on the 15th floor in one of their suite rooms. The room was enormous, literally had a full kitchen. I also think the gym is one of the best hotel gyms I’ve been to in a while. Great views of the city, weights and cardio machines as well. For a big, commercial hotel, it felt like it had a little bit of uniqueness and southern charm.
Just the right balance of modern amenities and classic southern charm. The hotel which is smack in the middle of midtown Atlanta and directly across from the iconic Fox Theatre makes it a great location. The staff was terrific from the valet, the front desk staff and housekeeping, Simply wonderful.
This hotel has a wonderful mix of modern, luxury, classic and complete Southern hospitality. The staff is amazing and greets you immediately with smiles and offering ways to serve. The Georgian Terrace is located in Midtown Atlanta across from the Fox Theatre and within an easy walk to nearby restaurants and Piedmont Park. Livingston’s inside the hotel is an excellent restaurant.
Beautiful redone old hotel with a lot of character. There is plenty nearby to walk to. Lot of restaurants, the fox Theater is across the street, Georgia tech is nearby, there is a MARTA 1 block away. The rooms are large and spacious. The restaurant is fine.
Do you like going to the Fox Theatre? Are you coming from out of town? Do you want a gay friendly hotel in Atlanta? If so, do I have the place for you to stay! The Georgian Terrace Hotel, conveniently right across from the Fox, plus close to other Atlanta attractions. The was the first time staying at this hotel but they made me feel like I was a regular customer. Everyone we encountered from the valet parking, front desk, security and even the maintenance guy was friendly.
The room was great, I thought it was going to be small being this was an old hotel but the room we had was very spacious and clean. So for any of you out of towners heading to the Fox Theatre, I highly recommend you stay at the Georgian Terrace Hotel.

It was about a 10-minute walk to State Farm Arena… There are several restaurants within walking distance. The continental breakfast was the best I’ve ever seen.

There are a multitude of entertainment options within a reasonable walking distance, e.g. Atlanta Aquarium, Coca Cola Museum, College Football Hall of Fame, Mercedes Benz Stadium to name a few. There is also a multitude of eateries around the area. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful during the check-in and check-out process.

Would recommend this hotel without question. Great service and facilities and the location is great! So near to great restaurants and to the convention centre. The staff were very friendly, the breakfast was regionally influences which was great too.
