Six of Downtown Atlanta’s major convention hotels — known collectively as "The Big 6" — make up more than 60% of the hotel rooms within the convention and entertainment district.

Even better, they’re all around 15 minutes from the airport and a short walk from Georgia World Congress Center, Mercedes-Benz Stadium (host of Super Bowl LIII), Centennial Olympic Park and several of the city’s renowned attractions. Attendees can easily check out Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca‑Cola, Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame, Center for Civil and Human Rights, CNN Studio Tours at CNN Center and State Farm Arena to name a few.

Both planners and attendees love the ease of accessibility from these hotels to the convention campus, dining spots and things to do in and around the city. Take a closer look at these six superb properties.
