Im gonna be Atlanta from the 22nd of May until the 27th may.
Can anyone give me advice where to stay? I did want to stay somewhere near to little five points as from what ive read and seen of it, it looks like my sort of thing. Ive looked for accomodation in this area but cant find anything.
Is it worth looking harder or shall i just stay downtown??
Try www.hotwire.com and put in the area you want.
Atlanta has lots of good accommodations -- look online.
Little Five points is just a short MARTA (local transit) train ride from Downtown Atlanta if not included in the downtown area. My concern is that unless you are looking for high end accommodations, your downtown options may be scary if at all available.
Try surrounding areas like Decatur, Lithonia or even Stone Mountain in your hotel search. You should be able to find a good number of options that are on the bus line which make it simple to get around. MARTA has a web site and they operate trains and buses. You can often take a train and get a bus transfer. If this seems like the way to go, make your search for accommodation one that includes it being accessible to MARTA. Staying for 5 days may make a bus/train card a good option. Don't know the pricing details because I generally drive into the city to work. However attending a baseball game, for example. MARTA is the way I go.
Hope this helps.
Sorry! I forgot to include the Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) web site.
