Airport Marriott...Watch the planes all night! A review of Atlanta Marriott 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.
