Rhodes Memorial Hall, commonly known as Rhodes Hall, is a historic house located in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. It was built as the home of furniture magnate Amos Giles Rhodes, proprietor of Atlanta-based Rhodes Furniture. The Romanesque Revival house occupies a prominent location on Peachtree Street, the main street of Atlanta, and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It is open to the public and has been the home of The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation since 1983.InspirationRhodes Hall is a Romanesque Revival 9000sqft house inspired by the Rhineland castles that Rhodes admired on a trip to Europe in the late 1890s. Architect Willis F. Denny designed the unique home with Stone Mountain granite, incorporating medieval Romanesque, Victorian, and Arts and Crafts designs as well as necessary adaptations for an early 20th-century home. After two years of construction, the house was completed in 1904.Victorian architectureKnown as Le Rêve, Rhodes Hall is one of the finest intact expressions of medievalism and late Victorian architectural design in Atlanta. The grandest feature of the interior is a magnificent series of stained and painted glass windows that rise above a carved mahogany staircase. The three-panel series depicts the rise and fall of the Confederacy from Fort Sumter to Appomattox, and includes medallion portraits of over a dozen Confederates.

  • Went there for a wedding, not the tour. Pretty interesting place. If you are into American history I recommend taking a look.
  • We made an appointment here to tour as a possible wedding venue option. To begin; parking across the street was a pain and we stood outside for about 10min in the cold before someone answered the door. It was far smaller than anticipated, not in the best of locations, and the history behind it is not exactly something to be proud of. The guide was nice but she wasnt very enthusiastic at all. Unless you are looking to book a small intimate (40 max though they can accommodate more people in separate rooms) event or a HUGE history enthusiast this place might be alright. If not I wouldn't waste your time.
  • Pretty spot I looked at for a wedding venue. Really nice until you notice some of the quirky details, like all the stained glass is civil war stained glass, and the murals are of beaches with palm trees. Still, if you can look past that the big picture is that its beautiful.
  • Santa at Rhodes Hall Event - Photographer was an ass. They only take one posed photo - no candid shots. I'm sorry I strayed from the Phipps Mall Santa experience. We won't be back.
  • I got married at Rhodes Hall on April 12th of 2015. Everything about this place is amazing! It's beautiful both inside and outside, so the decorating I needed to do was minimal. The staff is also incredible! I loved working with Chrystal leading up to and on the day of the wedding. Everything was a blur for me but went off without a hitch! It's also very reasonable priced (for those considering this venue it's a historical building so you can write it off in your taxes) and they let you bring your own alcohol! Best place to get married in Atlanta.

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
