I just randomly woke up yesterday morning and decided I was going to DragonCon. Always wanted to go and now just seems like the right time.
Even though I've been to Atlanta a few times, I really don't know anything about it. All of the DragonCon hotels are fully booked, so we will need to find some place else to stay.
We are not renting a car. We would like something on the Marta line. We are hoping to pay less than $200 a night (feasible?). We're not turned off by grit (we live in DC), but we do need clean. We are arriving by Amtrak.
I see that Marta is not 24 hours. We don't expect to be out late but if we had to, a hotel that isn't too far away won't cost us the earth in cab fare.
I hope I have provided enough information to be helpful, and thanks for whatever you guys come up with.
