Visit Athens before flying out

On my way back to USA from Santorini, I will spend one and half day in Athens. I have will have morning flight back to USA at 09: 30 AM.

How to maximize my time (itinerary not decided) to see Athens in one and half day and where to stay? I was looking at Academia hotel and Marriott hotel in Athens. Should I consider some other hotels?

If it's the Marriott Hotel located Leof. Andrea Siggrou Street, you will be very far from the usual interesting sites in the center of Athens (Acropolis, Plaka, Syntagma Square, etc) but right in front of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center which is interesting to see and visit and where there is a great park

The Academia hotel is closer to the center but not very well located either, almost 2 km from the Acropolis.
On the other hand, it is very well placed if you want to see some street art in the Exarchia district or go to Lycabettus Hill.

I'm sure you can find better and more convenient for you, and other forum members will be able to advise you some other places.

Readers should note that the link to the website of "travel the greek way" recommends (expensive) hotels and other accommodations that pay a commission to him/her if you book ... I believe this is commercial self-promotion in violation of R Steves FOrum guidelines.
