I took some college students to the Passion Conference (50,000 college students/Christian conference) in Atlanta, GA - Jan 2-4. We arrived about 3:30pm and unfortunately they only had 1 of three rooms ready but these were college students, they were just happy to be away from home. Our conference was in the Georgia Dome. The only closer hotel, and that may be up for debate, was the Omni. The Glenn is in the middle of it all...Phillips Arena (where the Hawks play and concerts held), college football museum, coca cola museum, a downtown ferris wheel for viewing, the Georgia Dome, CNN, plenty of chain dining spots as well as local establishments. It is a boutique type hotel. It doesn't feel big...for where we were it wasn't big. They took great care of us and beside the hold up on the rooms it was nice. The beds were AMAZING!!! One of the parents of the students tried to book late, as the hotel was almost full, and was quoted almost $600/night. It was kind of a running joke because I didn't ask for near that much from the students...they thought I was funding the difference I asked for but I asked for almost exactly what it cost. They all commented at some point that the beds were worth $600/night. I got them for $244/night...I booked early through Marriott site. Honestly, if you are looking for a good place in the middle of it all in Atlanta but with a smaller more personal upscale feel - The Glenn in ATL is a great choice. Also, across the street is a place called Thrive. It a nice dining spot. The burger and frittes were incredible.
