Hotel Reservation for FODAVA Annual Meeting for the dates December 8-10, 2010

Driving/Parking, Walking and Bus Directions

Hotel Information and Directions to the Hotel from the Airport can be found here

For those driving, a map from GaTech Hotel to Klaus can be found here
Visitors can park at Area 4 parking in the following map (Klaus is E40 on the map): Parking Map
Drive West on 5th Street (turns into Ferst St), pass the Klaus building (on the left), and take a left when you hit the Ferst and State St intersection. Parking area will be directly to the left when you enter the lot.

For those walking, a map of a quicker route is here (NOTE: walk straight down 5th St. and then up the stairs of the Klaus Building (stairs shown on the picture to the right) - Atrium will be inside the main entrance to the right)

Additionally, there is a bus (Tech Trolley) which will take you to the building. Get on the Tech Trolley from the north side of 5th Street (bus going West). Once you see the building (as shown on the photo) exit the bus and cross the street safely.

A campus map can be found here (where the building is listed as Christopher W. Klaus Advanced Computing Building).
