We're flying into Atlanta at end May, before going on a self-drive tour around the southern states. As the flight is an early evening arrival, we'd like to stay in Atlanta, stroll out for a beer or two, and to eat, and enjoy the city. Maybe a few hours the next morning spent seeing a few sights.
We are lively 50+ couple, and may well have a rental car to park as well.
Any recommendations for either a general area, or a specific hotel? (We don't want a faceless airport hotel). Help much appreciated.
