Coin Shows - Location and Directions
For 2014, the Greater Atlanta Coin Shows return to their location at the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel & Conference Center, 500 Powder
Springs Street, just south of the historic Marietta Square in Marietta, Georgia.
For those of you with GPS or looking at online maps, the hotel's official street address is 500 Powder Springs
Street. However, just south of the hotel the addresses change to Powder Springs Road. So, if you can't find 500
Powder Springs Street on your digital map, try 500 Powder Springs Road instead.
General Greater Atlanta Coin Shows Hotel Information:
For you history buffs, the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel & Conference Center is located on the grounds of
the Georgia Military Institute which operated from 1851 to 1864. During Sherman's march through Georgia, he ordered
the area burned, but he spared the home on the property as it was owned by his friend from West Point, Colonel
Arnoldous Brumby. (Click for more photos
of the coin show's location and surroundings.)
For those of you who visit the coin show and are hungry, the hotel's restaurant, The Pub, offers lighter
fare (soups, salads, sandwiches) and full meals. From several people, we've heard, "The Pub has THE
BEST prime rib."
Some of you also enjoy golf. The City Club Marietta's 18-hole golf course lies just behind the hotel. With a little
planning, you can indulge two passions in one day - coins and golf!
