The Country Inns and Suites hotel is right next to the ballpark. It's within walking distance, so even if it costs a little more - it's well worth the money! You have to book it soon, though - they get booked quickly. Enjoy - we're big Braves' fans!
I don't have any suggestions but I have to say that I am SOOOOOOO jealous of you! We usually make the eight hour trip one time per season, but I don't think it's happening this year. Have fun!! GO BRAVES!
You can use a program like travelocity to do some research.
You can get to the park by riding on the public transportation if you choose lodgings a little farther afield. Atlanta has a nice rail service (MARTA). It's possible to hike from the GA State stop (100 others will trek with you on the way home). It isn't really far or daunting. MARTA also has a bus shuttle to take patrons to the Five Points station in the center of town.
I am envious also! When I lived there I often attended games at the old Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium (and I sometimes made that trek to the GA State station). I still haven't been to Turner Field. I married a Marlins fan, sigh.
Hi, I am a local down here. The area around the ball park is being fixed up. It was very ruff but it is getting better. Marta is for the most part safe and I know they have a shuttle that takes you to the ballpark. Don't go to far East or South. Stay around Midtown or north. Colony square area is totally trendy up scale and fun place to see close to everything
