you to “Peachtree Place / Ga. Tech Stinger Shuttle.” The Tech Trolley picks up
directly outside the MARTA rail station entrance. Guests will want to exit the
trolley on 5th Street, just west of Spring Street, which is the first stop after
departing the MARTA station. Guests need to walk to the Spring Street
intersection and the hotel will be directly across 5th Street. There is a revolving
door at the corner of 5th Street and Spring Street that guests may enter, but to enter
hotel after 9 pm, they must continue down Spring Street in front of hotel to the
main guest entrance which will be on the right.

Directions to Airport

To get to the airport via Tech Trolley and Marta, guests must board the Tech
Trolley across the street from where they were dropped off for the hotel (in front
