Transportation and Parking

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, 6000 North Terminal Parkway, Atlanta GA 30320, 1-800-897-1910, is 10.1 miles from the conference site (Loudermilk Conference Center), and is served by 18 domestic and international airlines.  There are numerous forms of ground transportation that may be taken from the airport into Atlanta, such as MARTA train, shuttles, taxis and rideshare services.  Please note that the 2 or 3 hotels for which P-POD is arranging attendee group rates are between 1,750 ft. (1/3rd mile) and 2,000 ft. (3/8ths mile) walking distance from the conference site, thus a rental car is likely not necessary for air travelers.  Note also that if the MARTA train is boarded at the airport, then the 8th stop on that line is Peachtree Center station, and one of the hotels listed below on this page with P-POD rates, Residence Inn, is about 350 feet south of the station exit.

Atlanta is also accessible via Amtrak train at its Peachtree Station (different from Peachtree Center),1688 Peachtree Street, NW, Atlanta GA 30309, on the historic Crescent route running between New York City and New Orleans.  You may use the green Book Now button on either of those two Amtrak pages to check out possible dates, times and prices.

At our 
Loudermilk Conference Center site, there is a large parking garage connected to the building, for which our hosts arrange a maximum $8/day parking charge, through validation of your parking stub at the conference.

Hotel Options:  2 for People without Cars, 1 for People with Cars

Atlanta is an expensive hotel marketplace, but we have negotiated fairly reasonable P-POD rates at three hotels rated at 4 out of 5 level in Tripadvisor reviews:  two of them are 1/3rd to 3/8ths mile walking distance from P-POD and have extremely high parking fees, so we designate them for people without cars;  one of them is 6.9 miles driving distance from P-POD and has just $5/day parking fees, so we designate it for people with cars.  All are detailed below.  Note that the Residence Inn below, for people without cars, has P-POD prices expiring Sept. 5th, a month and a half before P-POD, so please book it immediately if you are interested.  If you take the MARTA train from the airport, then the train's 8th stop is Peachtree Center, and Residence Inn is about 350 feet south of the station's exit.
