Don’t Drive! Take the Train
Access to the hotel from the Atlanta Airport is easiest using MARTA: Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority. MARTA offers an inexpensive and convenient way to navigate the city.  One-Way fare is $2.50–and is MUCH faster than driving. Access the airport stations from the end of the baggage claim area.

MTG - TerraceHere’s how. Purchase a roundtrip ticket from the ticket machines on the right side as you enter the station. Then, go downstairs and take the North-North Springs Line to Buckhead Station (N7). Walk one block North on Peachtree Road and the hotel is on the right. When you return, you’ll see signs for going south towards the airport.
