With over 1,800 rooms across multiple world-class hotels, there are plenty of options for places to stay in Dunwoody. Featuring newly completed renovations, each hotel is sure to provide a welcoming, clean environment with staff ready to give each guest a taste of Southern hospitality. During their stay, guests will also be in the center of a variety of activities, including amazing shopping and dining options.


For those looking to be pampered, there are plenty of luxury spas and places to shop throughout the destination. Indulge in a signature facial for 90 minutes of holistic bliss at Angela Michael Skincare & Spa, or relax in the Quiet Room at Woodhouse Day Spa after a massage while sipping on a refreshing cup of loose-leaf tea.


After some pampering at the spa, visitors can take time to explore Perimeter Mall – the second largest mall in the Southeast featuring over 150 retailers. For the art-enthusiast, Spruill Gallery has plenty of locally made art available in the gift shop to promote emerging and established artists. Those who need a little extra retail therapy can head over to Dunwoody Village, a nearby plaza with locally owned boutiques for unique gifts authentic to Dunwoody.


Dunwoody is a restaurant utopia and sure to satisfy any foodie’s cravings. Some favorite local breakfast spots include J. Christopher’s and Créma Espresso Gourmet, both offering savory breakfasts to kickstart the day. Breadwinner Café, a lunch hotspot, serves up hearty soups, refreshing salads and mouthwatering sandwiches all made from scratch with natural ingredients. Those looking for a spot to pick up items for an afternoon picnic can stop by Alon’s Bakery and Market, a European-inspired market offering fresh-baked breads, decadent pastries and gourmet sandwiches to take to the park. Finally, friends and family can end the day at Novo Cucina, a chic yet relaxed Italian venue with locally sourced food and Atlanta’s only gelato artigianale (produced the old-fashioned way), hand-made each day.


For a refreshing getaway from bustling city life, Dunwoody has over 180 acres of green space spread across seven parks. Brook Run Park, the largest park of the seven, welcomes kids to a playground, runners to a two-mile multi-use trail, future X-Games athletes to a skate park, family pets to a dog park and those with a green thumb to the community garden. In the summer, Brook Run Park hosts Food Truck Thursdays for the perfect picnic with some of the nation’s top-rated food trucks.

For a more relaxing day at the park, Dunwoody offers a nature preserve, hiking trails and scenic Wildcat Creek. After a day of fresh air and exploration, guests can kick back and relax in the hammock garden.
