I found the hotel exactly as I described in my TripAdvisor review last year on 1/21/12:(http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g60898-d86261-r123419964-Atlanta_Marriott_Century_Center_Emory_Area-Atlanta_Georgia.html).
My only complaint this time? The WiFi signal in my room was poor, and irregular. The Front Desk forwarded me to Marriott Technical Support, but they weren't able to do anything. (I was in room 306, in case it matters.)
While it was irritating not to have a reliable signal, I was only in the room a few hours per day since I was at a conference downstairs. I feel certain that if I had requested a different room for a better signal, another room would have been provided, but I had already become comfortable otherwise in the room, and I wasn't up to changing rooms. (WiFi signal strength has, surprisingly to me, become VERY important as I now have my iPad with me all the time.)
Staff who were particularly helpful during my stay: Callie (Holle); Jesus from Durango, Mexico.
This time, I ventured out of the hotel a little. There's a Sam's Club between I-85 and the hotel, and a couple of nights I bought a rotisserie chicken, a bottle of wine, cherry tomatoes, and plastic utensils for a cheap and filling dinner. About a mile up Claremont, at Buford, is a Kroger. In the same neighborhood are a CVS Pharmacy, several Vietnamese and Mexican restaurants, and a Strip Club, "Follies" (note to wife: I didn't go. I only saw it from CVS, next door.)
Lee's Vietnamese bakery/restaurant is in the area, and has been highly rated on TripAdvisor and by the New York Times. I picked up a banh mi pork sandwich for dinner one night, and it WAS delicious and the bread crunchy.
