Atlanta Accomodations :

We went to Atlanta because my husband was presenting at a conference was held at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. With 50 floors it claims to be the largest motel in Atlanta. The photo is looking up at the balconied hallways. It’s probably best that we didn’t stay at this motel as Scott is afraid of heights and wasn’t thrilled about riding in the glass elevator to attend a meeting there.

I however enjoyed riding the glass elevator and walking around one of the floors. While we were up there I noticed this: I think the shadow on the building looks like a man wearing a hat and reading. And since this conference was for college English teachers, I thought it was appropriate.

We actually stayed at the Motel 6 which is catty-corner to the one where the conference was, and there was an entrance on the same side as our motel so we were only half a block away. Our motel had free parking in their underground parking garage and free wireless. It was located less than a mile from Centennial Olympic Park, the Georgia Aquarium, Inside CNN Studio Tour, World of Coca-Cola and the Children’s Museum of Atlanta.

Atlanta Dining :
Because we went to Turner Field one night we didn’t have to get many meals in Atlanta. We had hoped to get something at Underground Atlanta but weren’t in the mood while we were there and instead ended up eating at Gibney’s Pub which we enjoyed (and were able to watch part of the Brave’s first home game of the season).
