Staying at the House

The Atlanta Hospital Hospitality House provides short-term lodging and companionship in a home environment for out-of-town patients and families in treatment at Atlanta area hospitals and medical facilities.

Services

The AHHH provides lodging, kitchen and laundry facilities. We serve a meal every night at 7:00 pm for all the guests. Check-in time is between the hours of 3 p.m. – 8 p.m Monday through Friday, and 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. We have handicap accessible rooms and bathrooms. We offer shared and private bedrooms and provide linens and towels for all guests to use.

Eligibility

To be a guest at the House, you must live at least 40 miles outside of Atlanta. For those who are in treatment at a hospital, we request that you have a companion or caregiver with you. We are not able to care for those who are ill. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion or national origin. All are welcome. We do not allow alcohol, illegal drugs, or weapons.
