Getting Around Atlanta

The hotel is about three blocks from the Peachtree Center MARTA station.  Generally speaking, MARTA will be the easiest way to get around the city and Peachtree Center is a central hub for several train lines. There is also a trolley/streetcar that with a stop on/near Centennial Park that goes to the Auburn Avenue area and parts of downtown. The MLK Center is in the Auburn Avenue area. Uber/Lyft are readily available for areas of the city that are less accessible by MARTA.
