Went there for a conference. My room was in the south tower while the conference was in the north tower (really?). The room was nice and fairly well appointed. You could tell things had been slipping recently since the TV wasn't a flat screen or high def. The wallpaper in the bathroom had been repaired and there were areas that still needed more attention. There were paint spots on the tile floor of the bathroom as well.
My room faced the street and I could hear everything going on down there (I was on the 11th or 14 floors) including the train the came through town blowing it's horns around midnight each night. Couple that with the numerous fire trucks blaring their way through town several times per night and needless to say I didn't get too much sleep during my 4 night stay.
Don't believe them when they tell you the MARTA station is "just across the CNN Center Lobby". It's not and there are several sets of staircases you have to negotiate if you try.
The lobby was really nice and the bar in the lobby was a lively place Thursday and Friday nights. The staff was hot and cold. Some nice, others not. Several times I came to the desk or concierge only to stand there while the staff took phone call after phone call and ignored me. My one special request was to find a rental car and that ended up being a problem because the guy I talked to didn't follow through with finding out it the rental agency he sent me to had any cars (they didn't) so I had to try two more agencies until I found anything to rent. The good news is the hotel staff did arrange to have a driver take me to the rental agencies.
If you get a room facing the street in the south tower, don't expect to get much sleep unless you're a deep sleeper. Other rooms may be quieter but I doubt it.
