Hi, Faith. As I said in a previous thread, your best bet may be to stay in the Smyrna/Vinings area to have a kind of halfway point between the Aquarium and Six Flags.

One hotel I have personally stayed at and can recommend is Hawthorn Suites Atlanta Northwest. They're tucked away behind a business park near I-75 and I-285. They are also located near a number of restaurants. This would give you easy access to downtown via I-75 (where the Aquarium is) and Six Flags via I-285.

You can look up recent reviews of the hotel on this site as well.

To get exact directions/info. for the Aquarium, go to www.georgiaaquarium.org.

Hope this helps!
