Sure, Atlanta might not be a snow-socked winter wonderland—a lot of folks don’t exactly complain about that, by the way—but that doesn’t mean timeless holiday pleasures aren’t in full supply.
As a guest of ours here at the Courtland Grand Hotel in Downtown Atlanta, you’re well set up for getting into the seasonal spirit—and one surefire way to do that is to don a pair of ice skates and get out on the rink!
And, as it happens, your Trademark Collection by Wyndham guest room or suite here at the Courtland Grand puts you within easy reach of a number of standout ice rinks. Here are some of the go-to ones, ordered roughly by distance from our Downtown Atlanta hotel.
