The cool-and-quirky Hotel Clermont is set in the 1924 Clermont Motor Hotel, located in Atlanta’s Poncey-Highland neighborhood. It offers a rooftop (rum-centric) bar with spectacular vistas, a French-American restaurant, café and lobby bar. Atlanta’s bustling pedestrian artery, the Beltline, is just steps from the hotel and so is the Ponce City Market food hall and shops.
Located in the basement (and not part of the hotel) is Atlanta’s first and longest continually operating strip club, opened in 1965. It has established a nationwide reputation for its kitschy atmosphere and unusual dancers. The Clermont has been featured on an episode of Insomniac with Dave Attell, and celebrities including Anthony Bourdain, Marilyn Manson, Ashton Kutcher, Kid Rock, Steven Yeun, Skinny Lister, Lady Gaga, Eric Roberts, Ming Chen, Jason Zimmerman and the Guys Weekend as well as David Cross and Bombay Bicycle Club have been known to visit the Clermont when in Atlanta.
Rooms come with a king- or queen-sized bed, air conditioning, cable colour TV, Bluetooth speaker, a safe, a lounge chair a work desk, and an en-suite tiled bathroom. Bunk rooms sleep up to four.
