Hotels charge the prevailing federal per diem rate (currently $148.00 for single/double occupancy) plus 16% tax and an additional $5.00/night flat State Hotel-Motel fee.

Taxis and ridesharing services are available from the airport. The airport is about 10 miles from downtown and taxi fares from the airport average around $30. Share a ride to save money. There is a $2 charge for an additional drop within downtown Atlanta. For Atlanta taxi fare information, including meter and flat rates as well as a fare calculator, visit Taxi Fare FinderExternal.
There is limited valet parking at the Hyatt and the Marriott (fewer available after mid-morning) and limited parking offsite. These parking options range from $16/day to $25/day. If parking at one of the conference hotels, please mention the conference to ensure the appropriate rate. We recommend that you consider using rail service with Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA)External – Gold or Red Line (from $2.50 per person) for travel to and from the airport and in the Atlanta area. The stop at Peachtree Center connects directly to both hotels.

As part of registration fees, non-federal attendees will be provided food and beverage during the conference.
