The 2015 annual meeting will take place at the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel and Conference Center, located at 3405 Lenox Road NE, Atlanta, Georgia, 30326. The hotel has a fitness center that is open 24 hours a day, and an outdoor heated pool. There is also a 24 hour business center available.

The Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel and Conference center is centrally located in the heart of the Buckhead neighborhood, within walking distance to Lenox Square Mall, Phipps Plaza and the MARTA- Lenox Station. It is also an easy walk away from Buckhead restaurants and nightlife. There is a fascinating history of the neighborhood at the wikipedia.

Transportation from the airport:

  • Taxis cost roughly $45.00 from the airport to the hotel.
  • You can take MARTA via the Gold line, in the direction of Doraville, getting off at the Lenox station. The hotel is .2 miles from the station, and the trip will take approximately 35 minutes. A single trip will cost $2.50.
  • Onsite daily parking is $10 for day only and $24 for overnight.
