Vacation in Atlanta with no car?

We're eyeballing a 3-4 day outing over spring break and thought ATL was something fairly manageable, not too far, etc. We'd fly from RIC and would LOVE to not need a car (don't want to lug car seats).

We're thinking that staying right downtown is the best plan, near the aquarium, centennial park, Coke world, etc. MARTA is decent enough to get us other places and we can also take the bus or uber.

Any major flaws in the plan? In skimming hotels, there's not a lot available (in our price range) within sight of the aquarium. How far does the "keep your head on a swivel" radius extend from there? There are some other hotels near Five Points, which is the major MARTA hub, so I'd have to think that is a decent area too. Anywhere else we should look?
