“Convenient and nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I found it very nice with one small exception. Our room was large enough, clean and comfortable. It had a safe, coffee maker, etc.. The lobby was nice as we're the restaurant and lobby bar. Our food in the restaurant was good and the service was very fast.

The convenience to the car rental and domestic terminal is fantastic.

My only complaint would be that their free Internet is only available in the lobby, bar, and restaurant. Having to pay for in room Internet is a knock against the property.

The pluses out weigh the one minus so we would go back if connections called for a ATL hotel. By the way I have stayed at several ATL hotels, mostly Hilton Honors properties, but for me this is better.

Although this appears not to be a old hotel, the decor and furniture both in the lobby and rooms is depressing. The highlight was the decent gym and friendly Southern service. Lowlights: dinner and breakfast at Southside were mediocre, strange poorly maintained bathroom.

We stayed in Atlanta for a summit and this hotel was the one selected. The room was modern, featured a fairly comfortable bed, flat screen tv and a modern but, small bathroom. Housekeeping did a good job and our room was clean.

Expect to pay for everything here, you will not find those free extras with some other establishments. Bottled water-$5, Internet $12... you get the idea.

Either way, it can be a bit confusing when flying into the airport and getting to this hotel. What you have to do is go near the MARTA train (near baggage claim) and cross over to the Skytrain, get off the skytrain go left then get on the elevator. Once you exit the elevator you must go around the building to the hotel entrance. Its a short walk but, a little unnerving at night if you are a female alone as it isnt lit as well as it could be.

Since I didnt bring a car, I didnt use the parking area however, I was told it costs a bit to park here.

Your only option for food is the Champions Sports Bar and Grill in the hotel unless you have a vehicle or take a taxi elsewhere. The food is mediocre, the service subpar on all five nights that I stayed.

As others mentioned in their reviews, the staff could use some polishing. They are clueless when it comes to what events are going on and where they are being held. They are VERY slow with room service. However, once they arrive, they are polite.

Decor throughout the hotel is very nice, modern and comfortable.

We actually changed our reservation from the other full service Marriott in town to this one as it is steps away from a very convenient train that takes you right to your terminal. We were able to save money by returning our rental car the night before and avoiding a shuttle ride or cab fare to the airport. Great location...you can still hear the planes as they take off, but it is not disturbing (unlike the guests on our floor who went in and out of their rooms at 0300 hours)

If you need a convenient place to stay while traveling through the Atlanta airport, then look no further than the Marriott Gateway Hotel. It doesn't get any more convenient that taking the train from the airport to the hotel. The hotel is welcoming, spotless and room service was delicious. This is the place to stay and well worth the price.

Very convenient to airport, with Sky Train that connects hotel with domestic terminals. Used hotel for an overnight stay when returning from Germany. Be sure to note that the train does not connect with the completely separate international terminal at Hartsfield – you have to take a cramped, small shuttle van. As for the facility, it is just over a year old so the soft and hard goods are in great shape. The bed is very comfortable. Stayed on the concierge level, which offers evening light meal and breakfast. Full of regulars who the hostess knew well – otherwise, you feel like an interloper. Front desk staff could really use some polishing when it comes to customer service and positive attitude. I used rewards points and the front desk tried to tell me my reservation afforded me a concierge level room (no difference there) but no access to the concierge lounge! I raised a fuss and they acquiesced – not my idea of service after a 10 hour flight and 6 time zones.

I was there for a few days for a conference, and I think the hotel is great for that purpose: you need somewhere very nice, good for business, and with easy access to ATL--there's a convenient 5 minute people-mover/monorail that, to my understanding, just makes that loop, to/from the airport. You exit the station and you're about 40 yards from the hotel. As one person with our group put it, it's a "businessman's jail"--which sounds pretty negative, but is acurate to the extent that there's NOTHING else around it--looked like an empty warehouse across the street.

The hotel itself was modern-looking, well-maintained, and the staff was very professional. I found the lobby layout a bit confusing and without helpful signage to the meeting room "wing." Like the rest of the hotel, the conference facilities were very good. Even the conference food was very good...for hotel banquet food. There's one sports bar/restuarant that I found to be quite loud, but still decent food. (Having said that, you don't really have any choice in dining if you're there without a car.) Aside from the noisy bar/restaurant, sound was not a problem, esp given the property's proximity to ATL.

Nice, clean work-out room and equipment. The yoga/exercise mats, though, are pretty thin--sounds picky, but I use them, so it's something I notice. Is it just me or is it a standard that only about half the integrated TVs on treadmills/elipticals work at business hotels?...and there's only about 3 channels that come in with any clarity?

The room itself was, again, very nice. Very comfortable bed, nice workspace, and big flat-screen TV. Not stand-out, pretty much just what I'd expect from this level of business hotel. (I do find Marriott's in general are good with these features.) The bathroom was well appointed and modern, but a little tight, not much room for more than 1 person in there. And I was surprised (disappointed) the towels weren't a little nicer/thicker. The shower had one of those helpful curved/half-moon shower curtain bars...which I don't understand why more hotels don't use, rather than the ones that just go straight across; doesn't seem like too heavy an investment for a little more shower space. And it was a good shower, with a nice, fat adjustable shower head.

Overall, for what it is--an upscale business hotel (essentially) at the airport, it worked out great. Rates were reasonable also. I can't imagine a family staying there unless you need/want to be that close to the airport and/or have a car to get to where you're REALLY going in the area.

Room Tip: I don't know that any room's particulalry better than another. There's no view, to spea...
