STILL NEED TO SECURE YOUR SHAKY BEATS HOTEL? We’ve got you covered…
Music festival fanatics know that standing can be a 24/7 activity after securing the best spot to watch your favorite band (your Snapchat fans will agree). What you can avoid is how long you are on your feet to-and-from the festival. Luckily, Hotels for Hope has partnered with Shaky Beats Music Festival to not only offer hotels within walking distance, but with the guaranteed lowest rates.
Here are a few last-minute suggestions…
OMNI HOTEL ATLANTA at CNN CENTER – BOOK NOW
The Omni Hotel Atlanta at CNN Center is practically in the festival’s backyard, being less than a quarter mile away from Centennial Olympic Park (sorry Uber drivers… you probably won’t be getting business from these guests). In addition to the full-service amenities you’ll get by staying here, patrons will appreciate hearing about the rooftop pool – perfect for post-festival star gazing and cooling off after dancing the night away to your to favorite artists.
Got a case of the munchies? Lucky for you, the hotel offers 24-hour room service. If you didn’t take advantage of the variety of food trucks offered at the festival, this may be music to your ears.
Rates are still holding around $160 per night, so consider this property for your Shaky Beats experience.
ALOFT ATLANTA DOWNTOWN – BOOK NOW
Whether your looking to save a few extra bucks, or prefer Starwood’s newer concept geared towards Generation Z, Aloft Atlanta Downtown is a great select-service choice resting only a third of a mile from Centennial Olympic Park.
Aloft’s got you covered in a variety of ways: For starters, power up before leaving for the park at their “re-fuel” station, stocked with snacks and other food items. Looking to get your pre-party on? Hook up to your room’s smart-phone docking station and jam out to The Chainsmokers and other Shaky Beat’s artists while picking out the perfect tank top (let’s not kid ourselves… you know you packed 12 of them).
The Aloft also features an incredible outdoor pool for your post-festival winding down and cooling off. That is of course if you have any energy left and don’t run strait for the pillows (Additional note from personal experience: taking a quick dip doesn’t constitute as cleaning off for day 2… your room rate DOES include a shower, which your girlfriend will appreciate, fellas).

Additional event information regarding Shaky Beats Festival:
You’re going to want to pack some Advil extra-strength for this one. With over 40 electronic, indie, and hip hop artists including Griz, RL Grime, Flosstradamus, and the Chainsmokers performing across multiple stages, you may find yourself struggling the balance of watching the show and updating your twitter feed. If you don’t need the Advil after, you’re probably doing it wrong.
Forget to grab a bite before heading to the festival? Shaky Beat’s got you covered…
No need to search for the nearest IHOP, because with food truck after food truck serving everything from Belgian-style street fries to Indian fare, even “that picky friend” will leave full and happy.
Make sure you have Instagram ready because with all these photo booths you’re going to want to show off your artsy pictures.
If you’re coming in a day early, staying a day later, or miraculously found spare time during and in need of some adventure, here are a few options to quench that thirst:
Explore life in the ocean at Georgia Aquarium. Can’t promise there’ll be a marine life big escape like in Finding Dory, but you’re still in for a fun time. You might even find Dory for yourself.
Get the perfect photo op at Atlanta Botanical Gardens. We know you’ve already packed some cute outfits for the festival so why not stop by the Botanical Gardens to get your artsy pictures in. Insta fame waits for no one. Not to mention that it’ll probably be one of the few times you’ll enjoy peace and tranquility.
Step into the World of Coca Cola. A great way to spend your spare time is right here exploring what makes Coca Cola one of America’s favorite drinks. Delve into the history of this famous beverage and experience a trip around the world through the 4D movie theater before indulging your taste buds to sampling 100 different beverages.
Struggling to decide what to pack? Maybe this will help:
Typical day weather in Atlanta shows to be a sunny 77-90 degrees with it dropping to around 54-63 in the evening. A few showers to be expected so pack those rain boots deep in your closet along with your sunscreen!
