I am heading out of country and have a day/night in Atlanta to rest before a long haul flight. What hotel do you guys recommend for 2 adults and a kid (just over 1). Points are not an issue as I have enough. Don't mind close to the airport or closer to the Jewish food (will be renting a car for the day).

TIA

There are a ton of SPG choices in ATL. For Kosher food and free parking try one of the perimeter hotels (Sheraton, Westin) the new Le Meredian perimeter has a parking charge IIRC. Downtown, Midtown and Buckhead all have parking fees.

You gotta check out this new restaurant fuego mundo

Thanks for the advice. Any specific hotel you would recommend over the others? I did a random search and the 4 hotels I picked were all pretty cheap but don't mind splashing ore if it is worth it.

Good kashrus at that place?

It really depends on what you like. If attractions like the coke museum, aquarium are important choose the W downtown or Sheraton Atlanta. For shopping Le Meridian, W or Westin Buckhead. Don't stay at the W Midtown. Personally I like the Sheraton Perimeter for its proximity to Kosher and free parking plus it's a great hotel.

FYI Downtown is the closest area to the airport.

We are visiting Atl right now, and went to Fuego Mundo last night - definitely worth the trip.  For a cheaper (but still good food) option, Pita Grille (on corner of West Wieuca and Roswell Rd) is great too.

I don't know about indoor pool.  How long will you be there for?  Do you want to stay near the yiddishe shchuna.
