The Courtyard Atlanta Decatur Downtown/Emory in downtown Decatur is the main hotel in area at 130 Clairemont Avenue. The hotel features high-speed Internet, indoor pool and fitness center. Additionally, the free CCTMA Cliff Shuttle stops at the nearby MARTA station and goes to Emory University.
The closest MARTA station is the Decatur MARTA station on the blue rail line. If you are traveling from the airport, take any train from the airport and exit at the Five Points station. Follow the signs to the Eastbound train platform and wait for an “Indian Creek” train. Only an “Indian Creek” train goes to Decatur.
Once at the Decatur Station (about a 15-minute ride from Five Points) take the Swanton Way exit out of the station (not Church Street). You will exit the station into the bus loading area. Keep to the right and walk around the bus bay. At the end of the bus area will be a narrow alley on the right marked with yellow posts. Turn right into the alley, which will take you to West Ponce de Leon Avenue. Turn right on Ponce and left at the first stoplight on to Clairemont Avenue. The hotel is less than a block down on the left (see walking map).

- The free Cliff Shuttle picks up passengers at the Decatur Station and goes to Emory University/CDC.
