Shuttles are for the tournament only (after parties not included). However, Friday and Sunday after parties are located within two blocks of the host hotel. Saturday, you will need to find transportation back to hotel via cab or walking. If you walk back to the hotel, it is recommended that you do so in groups. If you need assistance while in the downtown area, text requests for assistance to 404-732-4200. The Atlanta Ambassadors are available until midnight every night.
The tournament venue, Georgia World Congress Center (Hall C) and the host hotel, the Atlanta Marriott Marquis are just over 10 miles from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Getting around Atlanta should be a breeze whether you choose to rent a car or not! The venue is about one mile from the hotel, so for those who enjoy a long stroll in the morning, it is walkable.
The hotel is located within a few blocks of several rental car companies, or you can rent a car at the airport.
A taxi from the airport to downtown Atlanta (hotel or venue) will cost about $32, plus any luggage fees and tip.
Airport bus shuttles are $16 per person, one way (http://www.taass.net).
Public transportation is available via the MARTA rail line, for $2.50 per trip.
The hotel is closest to the Peachtree Center station on the North / South Line. For public transportation from the airport to hotel, simply ride North Line from the airport until you reach Peachtree Center Station. Go up the escalators toward Peachtree Street. Once outside, turn right on Portman Blvd for one block (pass Hooters). Turn left on Peachtree Center Avenue and look for the large "lion" sculptures at hotel entrance (265 Peachtree Center Ave). Please note that Atlanta has multiple streets with the word Peachtree in the name!
The venue is closest to the Vine City station on the East/West line. To travel from the hotel to the venue, you'll take the train from Peachtree Center Station to Vine City Station (one transfer required: from North/South to East/West line at Five Points Center). It may seem counter intuitive to pass the station named Georgia World Congress Center, but the venue is so large that you will actually walk farther if you exit at GWCC Station.
