My family (including myself, my wife, and my two daughters, ages 6 years and 6 months) did the Stay and Fly package which allows you to stay at the hotel the night prior to departure, park your car in the covered garage, check out the next day and leave the vehicle in the garage during your trip. We stayed on a Friday night, flew to Florida on Saturday morning, and left the car there until we returned the following Saturday evening. It was a great deal for $129!
The hotel is really nice, updated, and comfortable. Very high tech. Flat screen LCD TVs in the lobby, restaurant, and in the rooms. No problems with airport noise with sound protective windows. The beds are amazingly comfortable!! I seriously want to know where I can get a mattress like that for my bed at home. We had breakfast at the restaurant before we departed on Saturday morning. They offer a very good, well prepared buffet for $17/person (including drinks).
The hotel is located adjacent to the Convention Center in Atlanta. There is a tram terminal within 100 yards of the lobby entrance. So, you can walk out the front door, walk to the tram terminal, go up to the top floor, catch a tram, and be at the airport within 5 minutes. We had a ton of luggage, so that would have been a bit cumbersome with two young kids. So......what we did is I dropped my wife and younger daughter off at the baggage claim/pickup area with the luggage to wait on my older daughter and me to bring the car back to the hotel garage, park it, and hop on the tram back to the airport. It worked out great!. We did the same thing in reverse coming back to Atlanta. This also avoided having the bell staff use the hotel van make a "special trip" to drop us off with high expectations of a generous tip (I am a cheapskate).
I highly recommend this hotel without hesitation.
