If you are travelling to Alpharetta, GA which is NE of Atlanta and need a good place to stay try the Hotel Sierra Alpharetta. It is not a well known hotel but it is fabulous. The rooms are modern with flat panel tvs, nice funiture, beautiful feather comforters and great internet service. I have stayed there more than once and it has been fabulous both times. In Alpharetta there are tons of great restaurants and a huge mall with ton of stores. It is a nice area outside of Atlanta.
