HOTEL & TRANSPORTATION
How do I get to the hotel from the airport?
While hotel shuttles are not available, the MARTA is a very affordable option. It is about $2.50 from the airport to the hotel. We do not recommend using the MARTA if you are traveling alone or late at night. Take the train from the airport to the Five Points Station. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the station. You can refer to the MARTA website for exact directions.
RideShares are also available, but be mindful of surge and other charges before booking your fare. You might also want to check out taxi rates as they are more protected from additional fees (but not completely).

Omni hotel only offers valet parking. Valet parking is a flat overnight fee of $55 for regular size vehicles and $60 for full size vehicles (ex. SUVs, trucks, etc.). There are also other public parking garages nearby.
