Our family of 4 recently stayed 2 nights in the North Tower of the Omni Atlanta. While finding the turn in was a bit tricky (calling ahead to find if you are in the North or South Tower might be helpful), check-in was very fast. Our room was maybe a little dated, but there is plenty of room to move around the bathrooms are very large. The view of the park, ferris wheel and CNN building made up for it.
The location of the hotel is perfect for walking to Centennial Park, the GA Aquarium and The World of Coke. It would also be perfect for an event in the GA Dome or Phillips Arena. One of the best features especially for traveling families is that the two towers of the hotel are attached by an enclosed walkway, so the food court at CNN is very accessible. There is the usual assortment of fast food, but there is also a gem in Fresh To Order. The fast casual place has very fresh, very generous servings at extremely reasonable prices. This is important to know because even though downtown is a tourist area, most sit down restaurants are expense account priced. Also being downtown, many places within walking distance are only open for breakfast or lunch.
A few of the down sides now. be aware valet parking is $32 per night. This is high, but your car is secure and getting the car from valet only takes a bit of pre-planning. You do have in/out privileges if you want to leave the area. I'd just recommend calling ahead by about 20 minutes because not all cars are in the Omni garage, but are parked in a garage a couple of blocks away. Second, wifi is $9.95 per day. This is waved for Select Guest members (free membership), but not for those booking via a 3rd party like Hotels.com. The last thing is that this is a very large hotel with a huge group sales business. When we were there, there was an Hispanic Jehovah Witness group staying there and things were gearing up for Praise in the Park which is one of the largest outdoor Christian music festivals. Everyone was just lovely but there was CONSTANT activity in the halls, elevators and public areas. Just know you aren't going to be in a quiet retreat by any stretch of the imagination.
