Transportation

Atlanta is very easy to travel into/out of due to Atlanta's international airport and MARTA train system. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) has direct flights to nearly every major destination. The MARTA line starts at the airport terminal and takes you directly to the heart of Midtown in less than 30 minutes for $2.50 and runs every 10-15 minutes throughout most of the day. 
 
MARTA
So take MARTA from the airport and get off at the Midtown (N4) Station. There is a free 'Tech Trolley'  that runs from the Midtown MARTA station to the Tech Hotel and onto Campus every 15 minutes (less frequently at night). When exiting the MARTA Station, exit through the sign directing you to “Peachtree Place / Ga. Tech Stinger Shuttle.”  The Tech Trolley picks up directly outside the MARTA rail station entrance. Guests will want to exit the trolley on 5th Street, just west of Spring Street, which is the second stop after departing the MARTA station.  Guests need to walk to the Spring Street intersection and the hotel will be directly across 5th Street.  There is a revolving door at the corner of 5th Street and Spring Street that guests may enter, but to enter hotel after 9pm, they must continue down Spring Street in front of hotel to the main guest entrance which will be on the right.
