Getting There

Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia
4355 Ashford Dunwoody Rd
Atlanta, GA 30346

Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is about 25 miles from the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia. Please visit for more information and transportation options.

You can take MARTA right to the hotel. Here's how:
The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) operates Atlanta's local public transportation system. MARTA’s Airport Station is inside the Domestic Terminal. 
Travel directly to the Domestic Terminal, between the North and South baggage claims. The closest station to the event is Dunwoody.

Directions to the Crowne Plaza using MARTA:

  1. Take a red line train to Dunwoody. If you are traveling from the airport before 8:30 p.m., board a train labeled North Springs. After 8:30 p.m. get on the first departing train and transfer at the Lindbergh Center station to the red line.
  2. If walking to Crowne Plaza exit the fare gates and walk to the parking garage entrance. Use the stairwell/elevator and go down to the lowest level
  3. Follow the sidewalk out to the street (Hammond Drive).
  4. Turn left on Hammond Drive, which dead ends at the hotel (see area map).

A free Ravinia Shuttle also departs from the MARTA station and goes to the hotel during workday hours 7:00 am until 6:00 pm. There are multiple shuttles that depart via the parking deck (lowest level) attached to the station, so be sure to look for the Ravinia route.

Crowne Plaza Hotel offers a complimentary shuttle that will take you anywhere within a two mile radius of the hotel.  The shuttle runs from 7:00am until 11:00pm Monday through Sunday.  All transportation requests are on a first come, first serve basis. When getting off the MARTA train at the Dunwoody Station exit to the parking deck (lowest level) attached to the station. Call hotel directly (770)395-7700

For additional information on how to ride MARTA and fees please visit website or How to Ride MARTA to and from the Airport

Can I take an Uber or Lyft from the airport? You sure can!
Passengers now have another option for getting to and from the airport.  Lyft and Uber are currently authorized to provide ride sharing services at the airport.  Simply arrange for a ride using the app on your smart phone or mobile device.  

How about Ride-Share Shuttles?
Shuttles are an economical way to get from the airport to most major hotel/resorts. While en route, group shuttles make multiple stops at locations along the way, so relax and enjoy the spectacular view. Local Shared-Ride Shuttles run approximately 15 minutes in between trips and provide service to cities in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett counties. For a list of communities, click here. Most shared-ride shuttles pick up on the Green Bus Aisle, which is outside in the Ground Transportation area between the Domestic North and Domestic South Terminals. Contact the company directly to ask questions or make reservations.
