Travel to/from airport via MARTA
The public transit system in Atlanta is called MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority). You can take a MARTA train directly from the airport to downtown Atlanta and the Marriott Marquis hotel. You can access the MARTA map on the MARTA website.
Here’s how it works:
When you arrive at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, follow the signs to baggage claim. After retrieving your luggage, look for the signs for MARTA. If you don’t have any checked luggage, follow the signs for Ground Transportation/MARTA.
When you arrive at the MARTA station, you will need to purchase a Breeze Card. There are multiple vending machines in the station to purchase your card, and agents are always on duty to answer any questions you may have. There is also a ticket booth you can use if you would rather purchase your card from a person rather than a machine.
The Breeze card costs $1.00, and each trip costs $2.50. So, if you plan to take MARTA to the hotel and back to the airport, you will need to load 2 trips (or 1 round trip) onto your Breeze Card, for $5.00. The card plus the 2 trips will cost $6.00 total. If you decide to use MARTA later in the week, you can load additional trips onto your Breeze card by using the vending machines at any station. You can also purchase 1,2,3,4, or 7 day passes, which allow unlimited bus and train trips on those days.
After purchasing your Breeze card, tap it on the blue circle to the right of the fare gate to open the gate.
Take the escalator, stairs or elevator up to the train platform. NOTE: keep your Breeze Card handy – you will need to tap it again at the gate to exit.
The Atlanta Marriott Marquis is at the Peachtree Center station. All trains departing the airport travel north and will stop at this station.
When you arrive at the Peachtree Center station, follow the signs to the Harris Street exit. (Remember -you will have to tap your Breeze Card at the gate to exit the station.) Then follow signs to Peachtree Street EAST. At the top of this rather long escalator, or elevator if you prefer, you will be in Peachtree Center mall. Here you have two options. You can get to the hotel either by going up to street level, or by walking through the underground mall.
To get to the Marriott Marquis on the street level, take another escalator up then turn right to walk north along Peachtree Street. Turn right again at the first intersection on John Portman Blvd then left at the next block on Peachtree Center Avenue. The hotel will be immediately on your right. Approximate walking time from the fare gate is only three minutes.
If you don’t want to walk outside, you can also walk through the Peachtree Center mall where there’s a skybridge connection. Just follow the signs to the Marriott Marquis Hotel.
