This was business travel for a meeting at the CDC. I took the early flight and arrived mid morning 10:30ish - luckily my room was ready so went up and tried to get a nap. I couldn't really sleep, haven't not had breakfast I was hungry and headachy (probably lack of caffeine), so headed down for lunch. Where upon I found that the only option was the price fix buffet. I was on the tail end of lunch and there wasn't much left, and there were not healthy choice options, and a bit pricey for what I got. Could have been the time.
The lobby is cozy, the room was comfortable. The dining room/bar - adequate - I did not eat there - it was tough to get a drink at the bartender was doing what seemed to be triple duty.
There are trails on site, for walking, etc. If you head out the lobby to your right and around to the flight of stairs and then up you come upon a multi-sector area - restaurants, shops, housing, home to a couple chains - bonefish grill - I didn't eat at any of these places, nor shop but others did and said it had many tasty options.
Across the street is the CDC - which of course was why I was there - not much else in the vicinity.
A really nice perk of the conference center is the shuttle that winds around and end up in Decatur - which was really fun to explore - several selections for pubs - beer centric - but top notch. many restaurants to choose from. Good to take the shuttle down, then cab it back - b/c the last shuttle is around 7:30.
