Hilton Atlanta Completes Multi-Million Dollar Public Space, Meeting and Guest Room Renovation

July 29, 2017 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Hilton Atlanta, the 1,249-room landmark downtown hotel, unveils the completion of its multi-million-dollar redesign featuring upgraded guest rooms, meeting spaces and public areas. The refresh is the first of a three-phase renovation program slated to be completed by 2018.

Boasting 129,000 square feet of meeting space and increased internet bandwidth, the hotel’s second floor now houses two ballrooms – the Grand Salon and Grand Ballroom – and an impressive 23 breakout rooms on one level which allow groups to comfortably host multiple meetings. Targeting groups with visual projection demands, the reconfigured Grand Salon features newly expanded 22 feet of additional ceiling height and pillarless infrastructure. Maximizing flexibility and functionality, the redesigned Galleria Exhibit Hall provides additional breakouts and meeting spaces.

A private check-in desk was designed with large groups in mind to offer a centralized hub for group check-ins and registration. Adjacent is a more conveniently located 24-hour Marketplace Café that offers fresh sandwiches, salads and snacks, many of which are sourced by local vendors.

“The renovation speaks to the increase in demand for more dynamic meetings space and sleek, cutting edge design,” said Michael Fletcher, director of sales and marketing, Hilton Atlanta. “The Grand Salon’s soaring ceiling height paired with the Galleria’s breakout space allows multiple groups to conduct business in the hotel.”

Designed by New York City-based architecture and interior design firm Stonehill & Taylor, the hotel’s newly unveiled design honors Atlanta’s aesthetic, culture and history. Subtle nods of 70’s-inspired décor like brass fixtures and bold patterns are peppered throughout public spaces and guestrooms as a tribute to the iconic decade in which the hotel made its debut.

Adjacent to the lobby, a newly unveiled expansive lounge caters to business travelers featuring contemporary décor that incorporate transit-inspired design elements. With Atlanta being known as a “city in a forest” for its dense foliage, guests will notice a modern, cascading chandelier reminiscent of descending leaves upon arrival, followed by a subtle leaf-inspired light fixture perpendicular to vertical mirrors that emulate a forest-like panorama at check-in.

“The fresh look reflects Atlanta’s quintessential charm and showcases the hotel’s commitment to growing business in the downtown community,” Brad Koeneman, general manager, Hilton Atlanta. “We’re confident the increased function space and bandwidth to host larger groups will appeal to both new and existing clientele.”

Trader Vic’s, Atlanta’s only Polynesian tiki lounge, and Nikolai’s Roof, an upscale French-Russian-inspired restaurant on the hotel’s top floor, boast new libation-inspired private event programming such as Mai Tai mixology classes and vodka tastings. Mainstays in Atlanta’s restaurant scene, both have maintained their timeless appeal and remained open for 41 years since the hotel’s opening.
