I was over for a training course and my company uses this hotel regularly, so I spent 6 nights / 7 days here. Easy to find (although my TomTom and the rental car's Garmin took me to the corner of the highway, where I could see the hotel, but couldn't get to it!), and just a 10 minute drive to the nearby North Point Mall. It's a good 50 minute drive from the airport, and a $90 taxi ride (according to colleagues).
Reception was very efficient (although I laughed to myself at the strong smell of air freshener in the lobby - noted on several other reviews), and I had a room on the 5th floor. Room was a decent size - 2 large beds, good sized desk for working at, large LCD TV, and good sized bathroom. My room had views over the rear of the hotel, and the double glazing and blackout curtains meant that I got undisturbed sleep every night. Bed was fantastic - I always maintain that Marriott beds are the best.
Only downside with the room is that there was quite a bit of noise from next door (TV, shower running etc), but this didn't disturb me.
Hotel gym was pretty good - several treadmills, cycles, and some weight equipment. The pool looked nice, but was quite busy when I was there in the evening. I was able to get on the gym equipment at 6PM without queuing.
Bar was good, stocked some decent local beers, and the bar staff were friendly and chatty. Food at the bar was also pretty good, but not particularly cheap (as you'd expect really).
The gift shop at the back of reception was well stocked with essentials (snacks, aspirin, newspapers etc), and had a good stock of drinks - everything from a Starbucks machine, to soft drinks and bottles of beer in a fridge.
Breakfast was excellent - buffet style, with an egg chef, cooking fresh omelettes, scrambles etc. Again though it was $20, so not particularly cheap, but good if you have some time to sit and enjoy it.
The hotel is well situated - not only is the mall 10 minutes away, so are hosts of restaurants. In fact, there's a strip mall 10 mins away, with just about every form of restaurant you could want. There's also a big Walgreens within a 5 minute drive (I had a stinking cold so needed to find a chemists!), and a big Target supermarket within 10 minutes.
All in all, a nice hotel for business, and one I'd be happy to stay at with the family. I'll definitely book in there again for my next visit to Atlanta.
