    I'm going on vacation and I'm not sure how good the wifi at the hotel is. Is it possible to connect the ATV to my MBP for Airplay (no need to stream from ituens, netflix, etc.) just airplay from my MBP, a few iDevices, and a Toshiba.

    I am not sure if this is possible, my option, would be to buy a cheap wireless router, and just setup a secure access point for your devices to use to stream to each other.

    I think it should be as simple as going into the wifi menu and clicking 'Create Network...'

    Copy Paste from the help center:

    Not 100% sure this works with appleTV but I see no reason why it wouldn't.
