Travel Pool Report #9

March 10, 2015

POTUS to DNC Roundtable at Hyatt Regency

POTUS emerged from Manuel’s Tavern at 4:41 p.m. and worked a rope line along the side of the Tavern, under an “Ice Cold Coke” sign painted on the building.  The President was in shirtsleeves enjoying the balmy Atlanta temperatures.  A group of 35-40 had assembled on the side of the Tavern on Williams Mills Road NE.

A larger group, of a hundred or more, had assembled a block down North Highland Avenue at a Chevron station but did not get to shake the presidential hand.

At 4:44 p.m. the motorcade traveled to the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Atlanta, arriving at 4:52 p.m.  There were clumps of bystanders on various street corners holding up their cell phones to take pictures.  No protesters were spotted on the journey to the hotel.

POTUS entered the hotel under the standard tent, so the pool did not see him enter.  The pool is now holding in a hotel function room while the President attends a DNC Roundtable elsewhere in the hotel.
