It’s Labor Day weekend in Atlanta, and bibliophiles from all over the south will be flocking to the Decatur Book Festival! The 8th annual Book Festival will feature 300 of your favorite best-selling authors, along with book signings, a book market and street fair, and plenty of activities for the children. There will be libations available, along with food stands and cooking demonstrations given by cookbook authors. Fun for the whole the family is the name of the game at the Decatur Book Festival!
The University Inn at Emory is the perfect place to stay this weekend, with a $99.00 special for rooms with two double beds, a deluxe continental breakfast, wireless internet and free parking. The University Inn is unlike those cookie-cutter chain hotels and truly offers its guests a “home away from home.” Many previous guests of the Inn have heralded its comfortable, cozy atmosphere and most become regulars when they visit the area again.
The University Inn is located in the historic Druid Hills community of Decatur, and is a family-owned and operated hotel that’s pet-friendly and offers many amenities you never see at the big-name hotels. Many of the rooms are equipped with kitchens, refrigerators and microwaves, and there are daily fresh-baked cookies and afternoon refreshments available in the lobby. Since the weather in Atlanta is still quite warm, you can take a dip in our outdoor pool and relax in a lounge chair to soak up some sun. The Inn is located on the public transportation line, and there is a shuttle available to take guests to the nearby Emory University campus. Additionally, a free CCTMA shuttle that goes to the Decatur MARTA rapid transit train station is available for guests wanting to get to the Book Festival.
If you are planning a visit to Atlanta to spend time at the Decatur Book Festival, call the University Inn today to book a room at our special rate! We look forward to welcoming you!
