Ground Transportation

In Atlanta, recommended ground transportation is MARTA (, Atlanta’s light rail system. MARTA runs directly from the Hartsfi eld-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to the Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN Center Transit Center, located steps away from Omni Hotel-Atlanta. At the Atlanta Airport, you can access the MARTA station from inside the building near the western end of the baggage claim area. Do not go outside to the ground transportation area. Purchase a round-trip ticket and take the GOLD or RED Line toward Five Points Station. This trip will take approximately 20-30 minutes depending on the time of day you arrive. Look for the signs directing you to the westbound train. (You will have to take an escalator up to access this train.) Board the westbound train and travel one stop to Omni/Dome/CNN/GWCC Station. Exit the train and take escalator up to the ground level. Walk up the stairs on your right–the Philips Arena is now on your left. Walk down the stairs ahead of you, and then walk through the doors ahead. You are now inside CNN Center. Walk straight, through the food court, past Wendy’s and Chick-fil-A, until the food court ends. Make a left and take the escalator up. You are now inside the Omni-Atlanta Hotel Lobby.
