Summary

Bottom Line

The huge, 1,070-room Omni Hotel at CNN Center is a typical business chain hotel, with a few extra perks -- an outdoor pool, a delicious restaurant, and a large fitness center. The large rooms are plain and a bit drab, but the location can't be beat -- in the heart of downtown, connected to Phillips Arena and the Georgia World Congress Center, and across the street from Centennial Olympic Park.

Location

Part of the CNN Center Complex, in the heart of downtown Atlanta

Map of Omni Hotel at CNN Center

The Omni Hotel is part of the CNN Center Complex -- meaning it's attached to Phillips Arena and the Georgia World Congress Center -- located across the street from Centennial Olympic Park. It's a great location for both business travelers and families, near numerous conference centers and tourist attractions -- like the Georgia Aquarium (the largest in the world) and The Children's Museum.

Once sparsely populated and somewhat seedy, Downtown Atlanta now draws crowds year-round. The neighborhood started as a business and financial hub (and it still is), but it has slowly become one of the most interesting areas in the city for tourists as well as for locals. Hotels, shops and restaurants are everywhere you look, housed mostly in gleaming skyscrapers.
