Gearing up for UGA Orientation

 UGA Orientation is Just Around the Corner!

Well, June is almost here at the Foundry Park Inn & Spa in Athens, Ga, and that means it’s almost time for incoming UGA Freshmen to come into the downtown area for their official UGA Orientation visit! And while the future Bulldogs themselves will enjoy the experience of dorm living for the night, their parents may enjoy accommodations with a bit less, um, utility?

Just a few blocks away from the University of Georgia in a quaint corner of downtown, UGA parents can get away from it all without being far away at all. Lounge by the pool. Escape to the Spa. Experience world class nightlife (with complimentary entry on most nights) in the Melting Point music venue & pub just steps away from your deluxe accommodations. It’s all here!

And to make the trip a bit sweeter, we offer UGA parents a special room rate discount as well as a free Loyalty Club option to accrue points  redeemable for exclusive Spa treatments, room upgrades and more!

Get started today by making your UGA Orientation reservation today! Call one of our reservation specialists at 706.549.7020 and use the code “UNOG” or simply click the button below to reserve your room online!

A Great Weekend!

A thank you from one of our wedding guests in Athens GA

We absolutely LOVE getting letters like these! These busy Spring weekends give us an opportunity to shine from top to bottom, and we love it when our staff receives the due praise for their hard work!

We love you, Annise!

Here is a video we put together to honor Annise Thomas, one of the Foundry’s very best, who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer and is unable to be with us at the Hoyt House. If you’ve had the pleasure of served by Annise, you’ve no doubt experienced her warmth, humor, and incredible commitment to guest service. We love you, Annise!
