From decorations and local business holiday specials to a wide range of shopping options, Dunwoody is a destination to both enjoy the season and prepare for it. Located just above Atlanta, you’ll soon discover Dunwoody is far beyond what you might expect. A little big metropolitan chic, a little bit small-town escape, all seamlessly tied together by an authentic community that is filled with surprises. The holidays in Dunwoody are sure to create a very merry experience for everyone! 

Accommodating Hotel Packages 

Dunwoody's six accommodating hotels offer packages built to bring you comfort and joy during your stay. Dunwoody’s walkability makes it easy to park your car for the weekend and walk to some of the best dining and shopping in Metro Atlanta, including Perimeter Mall. And, for visitors looking to explore Atlanta’s seasonal celebrations, Dunwoody hotels all offer shuttle service around town as well as to the Dunwoody MARTA station. MARTA is the perfect alternative to Atlanta’s holiday traffic and will take you from Dunwoody to Downtown in a snap.
