Group Photo – There will be a photographer there for a group picture. We anticipate the price to be $15.00, payable directly to the photographer that night, either cash or check. No credit cards will be accepted.

Parking – Parking is highly likely available in the parking garage at 150 Carnegie Way Northwest, Atlanta, GA 30303, for $6.00. Level 6 is the bridge that will take you directly to the level of the event. Parking is NOT guaranteed; if there are other events nearby, the garage may fill up. There are other lots nearby; people also might consider Uber, Lyft, or carpooling. PLEASE NOTE: If you choose Uber or Lyft, please give the address for the parking garage at 150 Carnegie Way Northwest. From the street take the garage elevator to Level 6.

Marta - The nearest Marta Station is the Peachtree Center Station which is right across the street from the reunion.

Hotel Accommodations – The Committee has been able to arrange a block of hotel rooms at the Marriott Courtyard Atlanta Downtown, 133 Carnegie Way, NW, Atlanta, GA 30303, for Friday and Saturday nights, October 4 and 5.  The hotel is in the old Carnegie building, if you remember it, and is directly across the street from the parking deck for our event, which is the best entrance to the event that evening.  The rate is $149.00 per night plus tax, and valet parking is $30.00 per day.   The cancellation policy is 72 hours before the event.  To get a room in the block, call 1-888-236-2427, or click the link below.  If you call instead of booking online, you are calling a central reservation number, and they will ask you in which Courtyard you wish to reserve.  Be sure to say it's the Courtyard at 133 Carnegie Way, and not the one on Peachtree or anywhere else.  The block is under the name "Henry Grady Class of 1969."   The last day to get a room in the block is 9/5/19.
