Room block booking website:
https://book.passkey.com/go/PLAYERSCOMMITTEE

If you want to book for Thursday or Sunday night, please contact Tracey Martin <tracey.martin@hyatt.com> (404-460-6529) as the last I checked these dates weren't showing up as options on the online system. They will offer the same rates for both nights and are working on updating the online reservation system.

Any idea yet if there are going to be any sealed and/or cube tournaments?

You can park at the hotel but I'm sure that isn't the most cost effective option.

Most MARTA stations have parking and it is free if you're there for less than 24 hours. It is typically $5 per day if you are parked for more than 24 hours.

There are lots of pay lots nearby as well. It is right in the middle of Downtown so paid parking is the norm.

The hotel doesn't offer a shuttle.

The train is probably the best (definitely the cheapest at about $3 each way) option, but if you don't want to do that, you'd need to do taxi/uber/lyft or one of those third party airport shuttle type things. From a couple posts I saw, uber would be around $15-20, taxi more like $30.

Do you have a link to train info? Does it run late? What stop do we take, etc. (anyone local can chime in, or anyone who knows already--not asking John to research for me, just if he already has the info for some reason). Thanks! :)

How early does the train run? Leaving the hotel around 4:30am on Monday and not sure if the train will be available or if I’ll need to Uber/taxi.
