Airport hotel before car rental pickup

We're flying in from London in February and rather than picking up our rental car that evening we're going to stay a night at the airport so can then collect the car in the morning.

The rental is with Alamo based at the Car Center Parkway address in College Park.

Looking at the hotels in that area, given that we might want a bite to eat after a day on a plane, I am wondering if we should go for the slightly pricier Hyatt Place which has a coffee shop, or if we can get away with somewhere cheaper but with other basic dining options (or even pizza delivery).

Any thoughts welcome.

Thanks

Stay at one of the Marriott properties that is accessible from the Skytrain - Springhill Suites. Marriott Gateway, or Renaissance Gateway. In the morning take the Skytrain directly to the rental car center to pick up your car.

If your goal is to find something cheaper, any airport hotel with a shuttle would do. You could order pizza or Uber Eats/Postmates for dinner. Or maybe the shuttle would take you to a nearby restaurant.

If the goal is the most convenient option follow the advice in #1.

Thanks. I didn't realise that the Skytrain also went to the car rental depots. That will save on a cab the next day.
