The Residence Inn Atlanta Buckhead/Lenox Park is located in Atlanta’s financial district.

The hotel is located within the Lenox Park office complex, the primary southeast campus of AT&T. The hotel is also proximate to an additional 20 million ft2 of office and more than 1,400 retailers where shoppers spend more than $1bn per year.

The Courtyard by Marriott Edison Woodbridge is at the nexus of Interstate-95 and Route 287, 30 miles from Manhattan and 60 miles from Philadelphia. The hotel is close to the Raritan Center, one of the largest business parks in the northeast with a nearly 15 million square foot campus; the 8.5 million ft2 Heller Industrial Park; and, the New Jersey Convention and Expo Center, the state’s largest private convention centre.
