Does anyone in Georgia have advice for an American who is married to a Canadian who needs medical insurance?

(The wife needs coverage and she's Canadian). Is there a way to pay for a monthly plan?

Parts are safe and parts aren't.  It's just a couple of miles from the drum neighborhood.  What are you looking for? Maybe we can help.

Thanks. Was going to rent a house with a pool but it's a little to expensive.  Most probably going to stay at St.Regis on points.

So for anyone interested in the answer ... it's "maybe."  Chai Peking was the only delivery option, and they said they deliver when the delivery guy decides to come in ...

Meanwhile, had Fuego by Uber.  Only had a burger but was very tasty.  Gonna check out Pita Palace today. (EDIT: Went to Fuego.  Off-the-cob salad was delicious.  Plantain chips were also really great.)

Chai Peking will put your order in an Uber.

The Westin Atlanta Perimeter North    7 Concourse Parkway NE Atlanta,   GA   1.48   Cat 3   SPG
Sheraton Atlanta Perimeter North Hotel    800 Hammond Drive Atlanta,   GA   1.64   Cat 3   SPG
this is what i found. note the distance to the closest shul ( taken from Godaven)

Which shul are those hotels near?

I'm looking for hotel's near a shul for Shabbos (preferable using Marriott points)

I found Cat 3 (Marriott Courtyard 1236 Executive Park Drive  Atlanta  Georgia  30329), 1.5 miles from Beth Jacob, which is not bad, but wonder if there are other closer options.

That is the only hotel in the eruv. The other option near the should is the Emory Conference center. That's closer to the Young Israel.
