Hey there Atlanta folks...I'm coming up from Augusta for the Chick-Fil-A Bowl and just-so-happen-to-be New Years Eve, so I'm trying to book a hotel.

The thing is, I really enjoy taking public transportation (DC, NYC, etc) and although I have been to Atlanta many times- I have never been on the MARTA before.

Can someone suggest a hotel at a low cost/fair stay area near the MARTA?

I have found a hotel at the Airport for $70/night and saw that a MARTA station was there, but how easy is walking around that area and traffic to get to the station?

Anyhow- looking forward to the trip! Thanks for any input and suggestions.

Most of the airport hotels have shuttles to the airport and you can hop MARTA pretty easily from there. However, it may be even more convenient to stay downtown. I am not sure if you will be able to get a room for $70 a night, but you might if you use Priceline. I have gotten some pretty sweet deals on Priceline, even on holidays/etc.

I HIGHLY recommend here

Perimeter Center hotel in Atlanta, Ga: Courtyard Atlanta Perimeter Center hotel - A Perimeter Mall Hotel

Shuttle to the Marta which is 3 minutes away. Wonderful area by Perimeter Mall and all its local restuarants. Marta station is fantastic and you can walk to the mall from the station as well. Rates are good.

This is the only renovated Courtyard before the recession hit.
