I had an overnight connection passing through Atlanta, and decided to book a hotel rather than tough it out at the airport. The Marriott was ideal for that purpose. As I had arrived on an international flight, I took the free shuttle from Concourse F around to the Domestic Terminal to catch the free SkyTrain to the hotel. The shuttle driver was very helpful with my heavy bag, and once I got to the Domestic Terminal it was a short walk to reach the SkyTrain. A few minutes later I was at the hotel lobby. Fortunately, there is a covered walkway between the convention center SkyTrain stop and the Marriott, as it was raining.
The check in was very fast, and I was given a nice room overlooking the SkyTrain station. The room was well-appointed and quiet. The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. I like my bedroom cool, and within a few minutes of arriving and setting the thermostat down the room was quite comfortable and to my liking. They provide nice toiletries and all the essentials, and I got a good night's rest. I skipped breakfast because my flight was serving a meal.
Just for grins, I decided to pay attention to how long it took to get back to the airport in the morning. I realize this may have been biased because I'm an elite on Delta and am eligible for TSA Pre, but from the time I closed my room door to the time I sat down in the Delta lounge near my departing gate all of 23 minutes elapsed. The SkyTrain makes it trivial to get to the Domestic Terminal, and checkout at the hotel amounted to giving them my key and saying goodbye. It could not have been any easier.
All in all, this is exactly what I'm looking for in this situation - a hotel I can get to and from easily and quickly, and one that provides me with a comfortable room and a good night's sleep. It costs a bit more than some of the cheaper properties around the airport, but those characteristics made it worth another 40 bucks to me.
