Travel from the airport to the hotel

If you are flying into Atlanta, you will be flying into Hartsfield Jackson International Airport (ATL). Expect a cab ride from the aiport to the hotel to take around 30 minutes during non-peak times and significantly longer during the morning or afternoon rush.

A much cheaper and more convenient option is to take MARTA to the hotel. MARTA (Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) provides rapid rail service from the Atlanta Airport to the Buckhead Station, which is adjacent to the conference hotel. From airport baggage claim, follow the signs to the MARTA train station and take a North Springs bound train to the Buckhead Station. Note: Some trains go to Doraville rather than North Springs. Be sure to catch a North Springs bound train. Exit the Buckhead Station onto Peachtree Road and proceed one tenth of a mile to the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Trains run from 5am to 1am (12:30am on weekends) at 20 minute intervals (10 minutes during peak times). If you arrive at the airport past midnight, you might consider taking a cab instead of the train. Please note: You will also be able to take the MARTA train from the conference hotel to the Arts Center station, which is walking distance from the conference banquet on Thursday evening.

If you perfer to rent a car, you will find the desks of several major rental companies just outside of baggage claim.
