Stayed here for a conference, which was hosted at the hotel.
I got the MARTA from the airport, changing in the city centre. If you catch the trains just right you can make the whole trip in around 40 mins, but at worst it would be around an hour. The hotel is a short walk from the Decatur MARTA station, perfectly manageable unless you are laden with bags.
The check in staff were very friendly and the lobby, as noted elsewhere, is great. There is a small gym as well although I never got round to using it. The room was of a good size and very clean.
The internet is free, which makes such a nice change from so many hotels who charge you for it, forcing you into the nearest coffee shop to check your email, etc.
The only minor criticism I have is the hopelessly overpriced snack shop in the lobby. If you can stock up at the nearby CVS, you'll not need to use this, though.
I'd suggest exploring the places to eat in the square, although there is a McDonald's right by the hotel.
All in all, a nice hotel and a nice part of GA. Particularly handy if you don't want to stay in downtown Atlanta.
