(This is a sponsored post for the Renaissance Atlanta Airport Gateway Hotel. All ideas are my own.) 

When you think of an airport hotel, what do you think about?

Super convenient for frequent travelers but probably not the hippest accommodations around, right?

Not anymore. Seriously.

I recently had the chance to review the Renaissance Atlanta Airport Gateway Hotel (a Marriott property) at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

It only opened 10 months ago. And it’s gorgeous. It’s got a contemporary vibe with lots of southern inspiration.

You’ll find cool couch swings, wicker chairs and lots of different areas to lounge and relax in the bright space.

It also has a super cool bar. I enjoyed an insanely good cafe mocha (choice of dark chocolate or white chocolate) on a recent morning.

You can enjoy delicious southern cuisine at the hotel’s restaurant, Hickory & Hazel. It’s locally inspired with a New Orleans twist. Did someone say New Orleans?! One of my most favorite cities EVER so you know I was impressed.

There are some cool, quirky things about the hotel that I just loved…

The office meeting space is creative and contemporary – taking a little of the boredom out of those long meetings when Lila from accounting can’t stop talking. (Now my apologies to anyone name Lila who actually works in accounting.)

Quotes of inspiration in the hallways…

A question mark or exclamation mark on every door. What does this mean?! Mysterious.

The housekeeping employees are called stylists because they style your room. So you kind of get your own stylist. Glamorous!

The windows have a triple pane which means you can see but can’t hear the planes. And we all know planes are meant to be seen and not heard.

It is steps from the Sky Train (which takes you to the airport) and then you can get on MARTA to get into the city. It’s also close to the Georgia International Convention Center.

And you have access to the indoor salt water pool across the street at the sister Atlanta Marriott Gateway hotel. Plus, another Marriott property, Springhill Suites is also walking distance. And the Delta Flight Museum is close by and a great place to visit with kids.

And once you’re in Atlanta, there are all kinds of things to do… The Georgia Aquarium, The World of Coca Cola, The Children’s Museum and my favorite activity… eating biscuits.

Hot Little Biscuit? That might be my new nickname!
