Sometimes referred to as the capital of the South,
Metro Atlanta is a quickly
growing, cosmopolitan region with a population of over 4 million. The airport is the
hub for Delta Airlines and is also served by many other domestic and international
airlines providing direct connections to many places around the world. The Downtown Hilton
is accessible by
the local transit system, which goes directly to the airport,
about ten miles south of downtown. Georgia State University, also in the heart of downtown
Atlanta, is a dynamic and diverse campus with a student population of about 26,000.
Atlanta offers large numbers of amenities and attractions, including a wide variety of
restaurants, museums, and historical sites. The Hilton is within walking distance of many
of these, including the
Martin Luther King Center.
The new Georgia Aquarium is slated to
open in late 2005, with the
CNN Center and the
World of Coca Cola nearby.
The Woodruff Arts Center,
which houses the High Museum of Art,
the Atlanta Symphony, and the
Alliance Theater, is a short cab right away.
