Atlanta's airport continues to be a busy place — and not just for takeoffs and landings. Last week Grove Street Partners hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for the Renaissance Atlanta Airport Gateway Hotel near Hartsfield-Jackson. The hotel is slated to have 204 guest rooms and 6,500 square feet of meeting space as well as a swanky bar for business travelers to
get drunk and make bad decisions hold important evening meetings. Appealing to discerning travelers — those who are billing the cost to clients — the RJT+R designed hotel is aiming high with luxe interiors by Rottet Studio out of New York. While the renderings show off a swanky setting, one of the biggest draws has to be the hotel's close proximity to the airport, affording guests a few more minutes sleep before heading off to catch a flight.
Connected to the airport by the ATL SkyTrain, which will pass through the building — sound isolated from the guest rooms, have no fear — the hotel will be just two minutes from Hartsfield-Jackson. It joins two others, also managed by Marriott, just a short ride from the terminal and the Georgia International Convention Center, boosting the total number of rooms to more than 750. The hotel is expected to open in March 2017.
