You can’t get much more convenient then the Marriott SpringHill Suites at the Atlanta Convention Center Concourse. Literally a 2 minute free train ride from the Atlanta airport. With rates around $150 – $160 a night, it isn’t the cheapest of SpringHill Suites (usually around $90), but this is all location location location.
I checked in this evening as was recognized for my status and opted for the Marriott points as my welcome gift. The lobby is simple with a Courtyard (the NEW Courtyards) feel. A bar and lounge area with multiple TVs, flight monitors, and sofas wraps around the corner. At night they pull a curtain over the breakfast area which is free and typical of what you see at any Residence Inn.
My room is impressive. A true suite for sure. I generous living room with a big sofa and large 36 inch flat HD TV. The desk is built into the wall and acts as a divider to the bedroom with a sliding window. Around the corner is a small bathroom with just a toilet and sink. The next door is a very large walk in closet. Finally the large bathroom has a walk-in shower and nice vanity area (no toilet). I could see that being helpful if you were a family or traveling with someone else. Bed is comfortable, as I’m writing this laying on it now. The last nice touch is the built in bar area with sink, fridge, coffee maker, microwave, and utensils.
The hotel has a good sized gym, a small indoor pool, and several conference rooms. There is a convenience store at the front desk. You can print your tickets for free at a really convenient station right near for the front entrance (nice!)
I may be sold on SpringHill Suites! My grade – B+
