The GWCC/CNN Station is a popular station for sports enthusiasts, concert goers and convention attendees heading to events at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, State Farm Arena, Centennial Olympic Park and the Georgia World Congress Center. It’s also is one of the more pleasant downtown MARTA stations and several nearby hotels provide park and city views.
The station itself is fairly uncomplicated, just deep underground. There are two main ways to exit the station. See below for destinations near each exit.
State Farm Arena/Mercedes-Benz/GWCC Exit
This main exit goes to street level via tall escalators (elevator also available). There’s a MARTA entrance to State Farm Arena across from the station exit. Otherwise, turn left at the top of the escalator for:
- Mercedes-Benz Stadium
- Georgia World Congress Center
- College Football Hall of Fame
- Georgia Aquarium
- Omni Hotel
- Hilton Garden Inn
- Embassy Suites Downtown Atlanta
Turn right at the top of the escalators for:
- CNN Center
- Centennial Olympic Park
- Glenn Hotel
- Park Bar
- Hudson Grille
- World of Coca-Cola
- Children’s Museum
Georgia Dome Exit
The Georgia Dome exit connects to a stairway and walkway that leads to another Mercedes-Benz Stadium entrance (which may not be open for the Super Bowl). At this point it largely functions as an emergency exit.
