We're traveling to Atlanta on 3/12 to attend a four day convention. We'd like to find a hotel along I-85 South that would be 10-20 miles outside the city (preferably near a good shopping area), stay there for one night, then go on to the convention the next morning.
While we have hotel reservations (Century City Mariott) for the event, we'd prefer not to stay there the night before, since we wouldn't be able to get a room at the special event rate. We do belong to AAA & use their discounts.
I've looked at various hotel sites, as well as Trip Advisor & would appreciate any information provided. Thanks.
