Went to Atlanta Georgia for a convention and was hoping to be within walking distance to the World Congress Center. The Quality Hotel was within a 10-15 minute walk and seemed to be reasonably priced. It's dated and they floors (carpet) needed to be better maintained. They vacuumed daily, but neglected to get between the nightstands and the bed. The comforter had a couple of cigarette burn holes in it, despite being a non smoking room. Keeping this in mind, I just had to check the mattress as I had concerns and was please to say that the mattress was fairly new and didn't show any indications of unwanted visitors. I was on the 10th floor and was overlooking Luckie Street. The view as Ok. I wasn't pleased with the leaf blower going off at 5:30am one morning to clear a public parking lot next door. Other than that, the sleeping accommodations were comfortable. The bed was firm and they had 5 regular sized pillows. I did like that. I was disappointed that there was no pool. The breakfasts they offered were decent (continental style as you make your own), I do enjoy the waffles whenever I go south.
If you're looking to go to an NFL game, your in luck as the Georgia dome is also next door to the the convention center making it only a 10-15 minute walk from the Hotel. 10-15 minutes east of that, your at the Aquarium. This place is huge and worth a visit.
Eats; East of the Hotel about 2 blocks is Peachtree street. Several restaurants are along this strip. If your looking for good old fashioned southern food, you must check out Pitty Pats Lounge. Excellent value and the food was awesome.
The Juke Joint is a nice place to go if you want some after dinner entertainment. Generally a blues/jazz band is playing nightly. Be sure to try the authentic Moonshine by having a Blackberry Lemonade. After the first one, you won't remember how many you had after that.
Be careful along the streets as there are several "panhandlers" looking for money and they're quite bold and creative in asking. Just ignore them and they'll go away.
