There’s a spanking new business-friendly airport hotel in Atlanta that actually works as a gateway between Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and the Georgia International Convention Center.
Atlanta Marriott Airport Gateway
The 403-room Atlanta Airport Marriott Gateway which opened last week is the first stop on the free ATL SkyTrain, a bare 2 minutes from the airport. And it is connected to the convention center by a covered walkway.
Conventioneers flying into Atlanta can literally get from the airport to the hotel, check-in and be at the convention center in a matter of minutes and without paying a single cent for transport.
The entire hotel is not only minty-fresh new, it’s also kitted out with the latest in cutting-edge green and telecommunication technology.
The hotel is on track to be LEED certified for using recycled materials and an eco-friendly design that reduces consumption, with a white roof and ‘green power’ provided by the city of College Park.
They also have a GoThere Virtual Meetings studio, which makes the Atlanta Marriott Airport Gateway the only hotel in Atlanta to offer telepresence video conferencing.
The 24-hour business center complements the 20 meeting rooms at the hotel that add up to 21,000 sq ft of meeting space. This includes a 1000 sq ft boardroom and the 12,000 square ft Gateway Ballroom - the largest hotel ballroom in the Airport area.
The lobby has free wi-fi with space and individual seating arrangements for meeting clients and group gatherings. The day-to-night bar morphs from coffee and pastries in the morning to cocktails and appetizers in the evening.

Even the menu is business-friendly, allowing guests to order food based on how quickly they need it – in 5, 10 or 20 minutes.
Each of the 403 guestrooms (including 18 suites) are sound-proof, equipped with LCD televisions, high-speed wired and wireless internet, swivel desks, refrigerators, laptop safes, and headboard lights for easy reading. Read More »
