The hotel Security Department, as well as a small number of other employees, are trained in CPR and First Aid. Emergency evacuation routes and procedures are located on the inside of all guest room doors. The nearest hospital emergency rooms are at the Emory Crawford Long Hospital and the Atlanta Medical Center 0.50 miles from the hotel.
