Atlanta is full of Marriott hotels, many of which are near rail stations, if you’re planning a trip to the city and belong to the Marriott Rewards program (and prefer a transit-accessible hotel). See below for the list of hotels that are in walking distance of MARTA stations to plan your visit. Note that we partner with Marriott and may make commission for helping you find a transit-friendly hotel.
Although not technically in walking distance, the three hotels below are next to the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport SkyTrain, which operates 24-hours a day and is free of charge. The SkyTrain also stops next to the Airport MARTA station for an easy transfer.
