Kids’ Inn

<i> From Associated Press</i>

A look at Atlanta’s Inn for Children:

Participating hotels: Marriott Suites Midtown, Marriott Marquis, Atlanta Hilton and Towers, Hyatt Regency, Omni Hotel in Atlanta.

Fees: $105 to $130 a week, but low-income workers receive scholarships from the nonprofit association.

Funding: The city of Atlanta helped the center obtain financing with tax-exempt municipal bonds. The downtown site cost $1 million and the building an additional $4 million. The nonprofit organization is to pay off the debt on the bonds through donations, fees and a contribution of $5,000 to $10,000 a year from the participating hotels. The hotels have pledged to increase contributions if fees fall short of projections.
