Airport

Nearest Airport: Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport.  Easily accessible  from most international destinations.

While the Atlanta International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world, its design makes it reasonable to navigate.  A map of the airport is available here.

Airport to Hotel:  The conference center is a short taxi ride (~$25) or train ride (MARTA) (~$2.50 each way). After 8 pm, between the airport and hotels it is best to take a taxi.

The MARTA train is $2.50 each way and connects directly to the domestic terminal of the airport. More detailed directions (Domestic and International terminals) can be found here.

MARTA Train Information: The Airport MARTA Station is directly connected to the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport Domestic Terminal at the end of baggage claim. Tickets can be purchased for $2.50 at any train station.  Atlanta has only two passenger train lines, one north/south and a second that runs east/west.  MARTA is good for tourist since it connects the airport to most tourist destinations and the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center conference center (map of MARTA). The Midtown Stop is closest to the Renaissance Hotel and the Courtyard.

Useful Notes about Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport:

  • There is free Wifi available throughout the airport.
  • Between terminals T & A, A & B, B &C  is an underground art display.  Take the escalators down towards the Airport Train and then look for signs that say walkway to terminal T or terminal A or terminal B, etc..
