Hotel 45: Boutique Hotel in Macon, Georgia

Craving a more traditional hotel? Hotel 45 is where its at. Spacious rooms await you, though you’ll want to spend your time in your room. Take advantage of the gorgeous vantage points of Hightales – the hotel’s rooftop bar. Even when it’s cold, you can still stay inside and see the views while sipping on a unique cocktail. 

Delicious food and cocktails at Macon’s Hotel 45

Though there isn’t room service, there’s a comfortable restaurant called Loom where you can enjoy upscale southern fare. My fried green tomato stack was the perfect comfort food followed up by succulent salmon entree. Plus, cocktails are unique to the restaurant and different from what’s available at the rooftop bar, so I tried (and loved) the Reddy Teddy. It is made with Jalapeño-Habanero Agave, Red Bell Pepper, Cilantro, I could have sipped on these all night! Plus, just downstairs is the cutest coffee shop to enjoy a vanilla latte and bacon, egg and cheese croissant to start the day!
