A map with walking directions from the Crowne Plaza to St. Luke’s can be found here.

There is no shuttle or public transportation available between the Crowne Plaza and St. Luke’s, so plan to walk, taxi, or ride share as is most convenient for you. Email Melissa (see above) if you need assistance with transportation between the hotel and the church.

Navigating from the airport to the Crowne Plaza Midtown

  • The red and gold MARTA train lines run from the Atlanta airport to the North Avenue Transit Station, which is less than a block away from the Crowne Plaza. One way fare is $2.50 and can be purchased at the station, which is located inside the Domestic Terminal.
  • Taxis and ride shares are also available.

At St. Luke’s

  • Free parking will be available either inside the gates of St. Luke’s campus or in a parking lot just north of the church. A sign will indicate where training participants can park.
  • The training will be held primarily in the Parish Hall. We will post signs to help you navigate!

Nearby Restaurants

A light breakfast and a hearty lunch will both be served during the training, but any other meals are at your discretion. If you are staying at the Crowne Plaza, there are several restaurants in the hotel and within walking distance. If you use public transportation or have other means to travel farther, your options increase dramatically!

Near the Crowne Plaza:

  • The Varsity: Drive in with burgers, hot dogs, and more
  • Georgia Cafe: Basic option for familiar American eats
  • Herban Fix: Pan-Asian vegan fare
