With its modern design, the hotel’s famous atrium was the filming location for the Tribute Headquarters in Hunger Games: Catching Fire.  The 52-story glass elevators in the atrium and the hotel’s rooftop are also featured in the film.

I recommend that you read the reviews before dining at any of the above options.  Don’t want to pay $29

for the full American breakfast at the hotel? Consider heading over to the food court at Peachtree Mall.  

In addition to the food court at the mall, the hotel is within walking distance to many other restaurants, such as the Hard Rock Cafe which is about 10-15 minutes away by foot.
