Are downtown hotels very expensive to stay at in Atlanta?

Rates at downtown hotels tend to fluctuate wildly depending on whether there is a large
convention in town.. Weekends are often cheaper, as are hotels away from downtown.
A cheap option is to stay somewhere along the MARTA line, further outside the city and take
the train into the city for sightseeing.  The trip by train to downtown should take around 35

What is the best way of getting to/from the airport to downtown Atlanta?

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority rail line (MARTA) travels to/from the
airport to downtown.  This is a great choice for getting to and from the airport.  The Atlanta
Airport Shuttle also transports passengers to hotels all over the city in a minibus.  All the
major car rental agencies have desks at the baggage claim level.

Where can I stay in the Atlanta Area at reasonable price?  I am renting a car so I don't have
to stay downtown.

The most reasonably priced hotels and motels are located on the outskirts of the city.  Here
are where most of the inexpensive chains are located like Fairfield Inn, Red Roof Inn, Holiday
Inn, etc.  Highway 285 which loops around Atlanta should take you to most of these hotels.

I am thinking of relocating to Atlanta, where are the nice neighborhoods to live?

Cascade Heights neighborhood in the Southwest part of the Atlanta area is a nice area that is
currently experiencing new construction. Marietta, around 11 miles Northwest of Atlanta is
also a nice area with great places to eat, shop and live.  And if you are looking for very
expensive exquisite homes, you could look in Buckhead.

Any good sports bars around the Philips Arena/Georgia Dome?

That area is not really known for sports bars, but if you travel a few minutes to Buckhead,
you will find the ESPN center, and if you travel a little ways to Marietta, you will find Dave
and Busters which is a real fun restaurant/bar complete with an adult sports gameroom.

Can you recommend a good Steakouse?

The Capitol Grill in Buckhead - great steaks and fish - great service - great view of city - kind
of on expensive side but worth it.
