I'll be spending a Saturday night in Stuttgart, Germany in February. Can you please help me decide where to stay?

I'll be arriving in Stuttgart in the late afternoon on a Saturday and have a flight at 9:30 the next morning. I can't decide whether I should stay in a hotel near the airport for convenience, or whether it would be better to stay in a city center hotel. I'd be interested in seeing a little bit of the city while I'm there if it works out, so that's +1 for staying in the city I guess. I also suspect it might be easier to find somewhat more budget-friendly accommodations in the city, since I'm only seeing a couple of options near the airport. But, this is at the end of a trip that I think will have left me exhausted and Stuttgart isn't the main focus of the trip, so convenience is also pretty high on my list of priorities. Is it easy to take the train or get a taxi to the airport first thing in the morning if I stay in the city? Or will it make my life much easier to just stay in one of the hotels near the airport?
I'm a reasonably experienced traveler but have never been to Germany (and do not speak German).
