Help with hotel, please!

We will be in Atlanta on July 12th and 13th and are trying to decide where to stay. We will be going to the Summer Arts Festival at Greenbriar Mall, Junkman's Daughter, Gallery 63, Scott's Antique Market at the Atlanta Expo Center, The Varsity and Piedmont Park for the Street Food Festival. Those locations are not in the same area of the city and since the Braves are in town we want to avoid the stadium area. Any suggestions? We don't need fancy, just clean and it would be nice if breakfast was included. Thanks for any information you can provide!

Wow! Sounds like we hit the jackpot as far as far as food choices. I purposely wanted to stay a short distance from our destinations because we are VERY early risers, like 5 am, even on "vacation", so if we get up and go out to eat breakfast, we are still usually waiting around for places to open. The driving time will help with that, and we often see things we didn't know about previously and stop spontaneously along the way. Even though it will be Interstate driving, you never know what you will find if you just "take the next exit" -- we have found some really neat shops/restaurants that way. It's fun! Thanks for all your help!

I-85 is on the opposite side of the city from Roswell Rd. you can either stay on 75 all the way to exit 263 and then take a right (google/GPS can give you the lowdown, or depending on the time of day you could bypass downtown by taking 285W once you start to enter the city and then go back to 75N once you come across it again (though after 5ish they both look ugly, but read the traffic signs as you approach and it may help).

Oh wait! You need to go to Roswell Rd, ATLANTA, not Roswell Rd, MARIETTA! Disregard the Exit 263 bit I mentioned.

Yes, you'll take 85 after the downtown split but you'll then take 400 almost immediately afterwards. 400 is a toll road, but you'll get off at just before the toll is collected. The roads you'll be turning on are all major major thoroughfares, so your trailer should handle okay, but there's a lot of ugly traffic there so best to be out by mid-afternoon at latest.
