The Atlanta Airport Marriott Gateway recently earned silver LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The 403-room hotel now uses 30 percent less water and 28 percent less energy than a typical non-LEED hotel; 20 percent of its supplies are sourced from within a 500-mile radius; and the property also features hybrid rental cars and premium parking spaces for low-emission, fuel-efficient vehicles. The hotel, with 21,000 square feet of meeting space, is a two-minute light-rail ride via the ATL SkyTrain from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and is connected to the 400,000-square-foot Georgia International Convention Center by a covered walkway.
