We're visiting from Central VA to see Falcons vs. Cowboys.
In on day of 17th & leave evening of 18th.
Would like to stay in area convenient to restaurants & stadium.
Don't really need to stay near airport as our flight is later Sunday night after 7PM.
Saturday - Would like to be able to walk around or Lyft around to sites & restaurants.
Sunday - go to the game. We would store our luggage @ the hotel & come pick them up after the game.
It looks like Mercedes Stadium is west of Downtown Atlanta & 11 miles north of the Airport.
1) Is Downtown a better place to stay for this itinerary or staying further South between the airport & Mercedes be better logistically?
Appreciate any feedback!
