Atlanta Marriott Airport
Travel Blogs from College Park
17th to 18th June 2013 With Elvis blaring out of the radio and the sun setting we arrive in Atlanta, we are both pretty tired so grab a quick bite to eat before hitting the hotel pool and jacuzzi for a bit of relaxation. It turns out the Jacuzzi may have been a bit hot as Anna's Bikini which was once purple is now a two tone mixture of mauve and …
Boy o boy if you thought Chicago airport was busy you should see Atlanta. Amazing a total zoo. We found all our bags and mangaed to get out to the shuttle which took us right to the hotel. It was very pleasant and we had a great sleep. The next morning Bill and Audrey were at the hotel to get us after driving 2 hour to pick us up. We had lots to …
It was time for us to make some time and head for St. Cloud, Florida, to see brother Tom, who is now home from the hospital and waiting for us. We looked at all the route possibilities from Asheville and saw that we could take Interstates 75, 85, or 95, but we needed to be on 75 at the end. We opted for a route that was a combination of 75 and 85 and headed south. We were happy that we drove around Atlanta on ...
We left our hotel in Atlanta and headed to the zoo. We have seen enough zoos but the kids were excited to visit this one because there was a baby rhino, gorilla, orangutan and pandas. It was drizzling when we got there and then started pouring. We were patient and got to see the baby gorilla and orangutan. We made it to Memphis as the sun was setting.
It is getting tougher to blog regularly. We did not have wifi at the Hilton because you had to pay for it and we were too cheap. We drove 6 hours on Thursday from Hilton Head but made good time and arrived in Atlanta at around 3 pm.
We drove straight the the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site. We spent about three hours here. I think the kids are starting to connect the dots in terms of the connection between the Civil War ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Atlanta Marriott Airport College Park
First of all, I have to comment about the bed. It was absolutely wonderfull! I have never slept in a more comfortable bed and I keep telling my husband we need to stay at a Marriott together so he can try it out. I stayed there one night with my baby and 65 pound dog. There were no problems at all and I received great service with my dog and bags. The room was very nice with a small sitting area and desk. The bathroom was smaller than I anticipated but I was just there for a overnight layover. The shuttle service from and to the airport was quick and the drivers were very nice about the dog. I was worried about the shuttle, but it rotated out every 15-20 minutes. I had to order room service because there was no way I was going to leave my dog unattended in there and they were prompt and the food was good. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
The bed is heavenly
The pool, jacuzzi and fitness room are top notch. Disappointed that computer access is only if you pay. The beds are absolutly wonderful, with the down comforters, no other hotel will ever be able to compare unless they have the same type bed with down comforters. Desk personell were really nice people. Valet service was just so-so, I expect more from Mariott. Don't pay more than $95.00 per night and you have a good deal.
Eat about a mile away, plenty of take out etc. There is also a restaurant on the road behind the hotel.
Let me first say that this hotel has improved greatly since it's renovations. The restaurants and amenities are very good, with a nice weight room, indoor pool, and a delicious breakfast buffet (not included in rate). The staff was friendly. However, I was very disappointed in our room. We paid $159 a night for a "deluxe" room. It was TINY, with only standard features like a desk and small sitting area. In addition, the bathroom was incredibly cramped- For this type of hotel, you would expect a split bath, with the sink (and coffee maker!) away from the toilet and shower- Not only did the room NOT have this feature, but the door (hollow, chipped, and old - Forgotten in renovations?)was only inches away from hitting the toilet, and blocked entrance / exit from the shower if not completely closed! Still, I would consider staying here again, but only if I got a better rate- There are simply too many other choices in the area to pay high-end rates for an average hotel.
We were here for our son's wedding. The reception was held in one of the ballrooms. The Hotel is nice, but has a really strange smell, almost wet smelling. The rooms were nicely appointed, but the bed was the most uncomfortable bed I have slept in in a long time. I thought it was me, but my husband said the same thing. Room service was good. Staff was very friendly.
A prompt and courteous shuttle driver collected us from the airport terminal, proffered chilled bottles of water and even carried our luggage to the reception upon arrival at the hotel. This bode well for the rest of my stay and I was not disappointed.
Our stay was unexpected because we missed our connecting flight in Atlanta because of bad weather. I called around to a buch of different hotel brands and this was the cheapest, $80. Great rate for only booking the room a couple hours in advance.
We stayed here the night before our overseas departure. The hotel was very nice, clean and excellent buffet dinner in the restaurant. The staff was very helpful and all what you would expect from a nice hotel. The rooms were quiet. They had a nice exercise room with pool. Also, they had free shuttle service to the airport.
Had a 2 day convention here in Oct 2004. The hotel is fairly nice and is extremely close to the airport which is great for these type of meetings. So close, you can just about wave to the people sitting on the planes as they go by. The service was exceptional. I was sitting in the lobby and one of the staff came by and offered a fresh cookie to me. There is a sports-type bar in the hotel that served as a good networking point late in the evening without having to leave the premises. I don't remember much about the room, but it served its purpose. My only complaint was that there was some sort of odor in the lobby, I'm not sure what it was. They charge to use the business center, but it was convenient for checking email. I would stay here again if I needed to be close to the airport for a quick meeting, but for out of towners who want to experience Atlanta, I would stay in Midtown where you are close to the action.
Great hotel. New or recently refurbished. Best bed ever... down quilt, sown comforter, down pillows. Cleanest room I've seen in a long time. Great service. Some confusion with Bell service on check-in... didn't know what they were saying to me. Turns out they were asking if I wanted self-service parking ($6) or valet ($10) when what I wanted to do was just check-in and get to a meeting. I opted for self-service and ended up parking on a hill and having to drag my carry-on down two flights of stairs.
Advise any travelers with custom vehicle or high-end vehicle to stay elsewhere. No security for your vehicle at this location even though it might appear so. Way too easy.
