Buckhead: JW Marriott, Hyatt Place or Embassy Suites?

We have corporate rates at these three hotels, with the Hyatt Place being at least $50 cheaper. We will be visiting Aquarium one day, and probably visit the mall with our teenage daughter one day. Is the JW Marriott really more convenient in terms of the Marta/Mall? I love Embasssy Suites in terms of room space, but parking/internet is not included as it is at Hyatt Place. What about proximity of decent restaurants - not Ruth Chris level - more middle price. Any comments would be appreciated. Priorities are convenience, then price, then overall ambience and safety.

The JW Marriott is very convenient to MARTA (literally over top of) and Lenox Square mall (2 minute walk) and Phipps Plaza mall (one block).

Embassy Suites is across the street from MARTA and two blocks from the malls.

Hyatt Place is two blocks from MARTA and four blocks from the malls across a very busy street (Piedmont Road).

There are plenty of restaurants in the area but they tend to be closer to the malls.

JW Marriott - you don't have to go back outdoors to get to Lenox Square. Your daughter can pop in there every day while you're having a nap. There's a big Forever21.

You are across the road (lots of pedestrians, easy to cross) from the Lenox station, on the Gold line.

In the mall are Panera and Corner Bakery, if you're really on a budget; in or nearby are Dantanna's, Lenox Grille (or Grill?), Truffles, California Pizza Kitchen

The other two are nearer the Buckhead station, on a different line (sorry, haven't learmed its color name yet) Hyatt Place has a much more demanding road to cross.

Both MARTA lines go downtown for your Aquarium trip.
