JUST 81 DAYS AWAY -- Still serching for affordable Olympics lodging?

Post by DMHawki » Mon, 29 Apr 1996 04:00:00

The Olympic Games are approaching fast.  If you haven't secured any
accomodations, we still have a couple of rooms available.  Contact us
today to make a reservation.

My husband and I are renting out rooms in our Atlanta home during the
games. For bed and breakfast accomodations in rooms with 2 twin beds, we
are asking $37.50 per night, per person (with double occupancy) for a
minimum 3-week stay or $45.00 per night, per person (with double
occupancy) for a minimum 2-week stay and $53.50 per night, per person
(with double occupancy) for a one-week stay.  

Also, available for rental, we have a large master suite with queen size
bed, walk in closet and private bathroom with two sinks, commode, and
separate shower and garden tub.  For the master suite, we are asking
$60.00 per night, per person (with double occupancy) for a minimum 3-week
stay, $70 per night, per person (with double occupancy) for a minimum
2-week stay, and $80 per night, per person (with double occupancy) for a
minimum 3-week stay.

I'm sure that you'll consider these rates to be very reasonable when
compared with the $150-300 and upwards, per room, being obtained
elsewhere. A photograph of our house can be viewed at our home page:

Since URLs are case-sensitive, be sure to capitalize the words, Atlanta,
Housing, and Olympics.

We are located northeast of the downtown area, relatively close to many of
the Olympic venues.  For instance we are exactly halfway between Lake
Lanier -- where all the aquatic events (rowing, canoeing, etc) are taking
place -- and the Olympic stadium and other key venue sites downtown.  We
are only 4 miles from I-85, the main access route to downtown.  The
Doraville MARTA station -- the public transit system to all the events at
the Olympic stadium and other key venue sites downtown -- is approximately
25 minutes away.  From Doraville, trains leave every 3 minutes and the
fare is $1.50 per ride.  If you have event tickets, the ride is free.  We
are also less than 35 minutes from Soccer, volleyball and rythmic
gymnastics events at the University of Georgia campus in Athens, east of
here.  

Our home is in a very quiet and crime-free area, away from congested
downtown districts.  From the front of our house, we look down upon acres
of unspoiled Georgia pine and hardwood forest land, that is habitat to
deer, squirrels and a wide variety of colorful songbirds.  Canada geese
often fly over on their way to Lake Lanier.

When you arrive, we will pick you up at Atlanta's Hartsfield International
Airport at no cost to you--the usual taxi fare for this ride on
"uncrowded" highways is $65.  We are willing to drive you to and from
nearby public transit facilities each day for a small fee.  You will,
undoubtedly, find this service invaluable because city officials report
that, in July and August, the traffic in this city in and around venue
sites will be extremely congested and parking will be expensive and hard
to find.
