Getting to Atlanta

Arriving by air

Two major airports serve downtown Atlanta: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and Dekalb-Peachtree Airport (PDK).

  • Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) is located approximately 15 mi (24 km) south of the hotel and about 8 mi (13 km) south of downtown Atlanta. Hartsfield-Jackson is a global gateway, offering nonstop service to more than 150 domestic and 70 international destinations. These locales include major commercial centers in Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, Africa, and South and Central America. One-way travel by taxi to or from ATL typically costs $40 USD. The hotel does not provide shuttle service to the airport.
  • Dekalb-Peachtree Airport (PDK) is located about 4 mi (7 km) northeast of the hotel and about 10 mi (16 km) northeast of downtown Atlanta. PDK is classified as a general aviation reliever airport, which reduces air-carrier airport congestion by providing service for smaller general aviation aircraft, such as corporate and business jets, aircraft charters, training aircraft, helicopters and personal aircraft used for business and recreational purposes. One-way travel by taxi to or from PDK typically costs $15 USD. The hotel does not provide shuttle service to the airport.
Arriving by car or rail

Driving directions to the hotel are available through the hotel web site. The closest rail travel access is Atlanta Amtrak Station, which is approximately 3 mi (5 km) from the hotel. Access to local mass transit is available at the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) Buckhead Station, which is about 0.1 mi (0.2 km) from the hotel.
