Travel Information

 

One of the first hurdles of attending any major city is simply getting there! Luckily for travelers, Atlanta is one of the most accessible cities in the world by plane, train, automobile, and bus.

For those of you planning on spending some time in Atlanta sight-seeing, we strongly encourage you to get a map of the city prior to arriving. Atlanta is well-known for its nonstandard layout, and its fondness for naming streets either "Peachtree" or "Piedmont."

 


 

Air Travel

Hartsfield International Airport (Airport Code ATL), just fifteen minutes south of downtown Atlanta or about 12 miles from the hotel, is a two-hour flight (or less) from 80% of the population of the United States and is the international hub for Delta Airlines.

Airport sites:

 

·Hartsfield International Airport Official Site

 

·FAA's official Hartsfield site (includes major flight delays)

 

 

 


 

Automotive Travel

Parking:
There is very little free parking in downtown Atlanta but we have arranged a discounted valet parking fee for Magic Players at the Hyatt of only $20 a day.  Other parking options exist nearby at various rates.

Quick Reference Driving Directions: When traveling northbound on 75/85, driving from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport or traveling on Interstate 20 you should take 75/85 North to the right-hand exit of 248-C (International Blvd).  Turn left onto International Blvd, then turn right at the third traffic light onto Peachtree Center Avenue.  Hyatt Regency Atlanta's Motor Lobby entrance is one block on the left.

 

 

 

When traveling southbound on 75/85 or the GA 400, take exit 249-C (Williams Street).  Go straight off exit and at the fourth traffic light, turn left onto Harris Street.  Then take the third left onto Peachtree Center Avenue.  The Hyatt Regency Atlanta hotel entrance is on the left.

 


 

MARTA Public Transportation

Atlanta boasts the second-highest rated public transportation system in North America - The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, MARTA - with rapid rail service directly from Hartsfield International Airport to the Peachtree Center Rail Station.  This station, "carved from the very living rock" ninety feet below Peachtree Street in downtown, is directly connected to the Hyatt Regency through the Peachtree Center Mall and Food Court.  The entire walk is covered and almost entirely climate-controlled.  The one-way MARTA fare anywhere on the system is still $2.50. The MARTA rail system shuts down sometimes from about 1:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. for track inspection and maintenance, so plan to take alternate transportation to downtown (hotel shuttle, cab, rental car) if you're arriving or departing in the wee hours of the morning.

When Traveling via MARTA from the Airport:

 

Take the northbound train to the Peachtree Center Station stop, one stop north of the Five Points transfer station.  Exit the train and take the escalator up towards Peachtree Center Mall.  Once inside the mall, follow the signs to the covered walkway into the Hyatt hotel
