Just days after Alpharetta’s Avalon celebrated its fifth birthday, a hospitality company has announced the thriving mini-city is poised to receive a new hotel neighbor with unique cachet.
On Tuesday, InterContinental Hotels Group unveiled plans to open (deep breath) Even Hotels Alpharetta-Avalon Area, a wellness-centric lodging option catering to the traveling fitness buff. It’s a first for the metro Atlanta market.
The new hotel, sited at 2715 Old Milton Parkway, just southwest of Avalon, is primed for a January 1 debut.
Guests will be able to book a stay, once the project’s finished, for as little as $72 per night, according to the hotel’s website.
Obviously, the hotel will feature state-of-the-art fitness facilities, but part of the allure for workout aficionados is the promise of in-room exercise equipment.
Each of the 125 guest rooms and seven suites will also have stand-up desks, refillable water bottles, and “mood lighting within headboards to deliver a holistic wellness experience,” according to an IHG announcement.
The hotel will also offer dining options from Cork & Kale, a health food concept serving the likes of acai and yogurt bowls, salads, flatbread sandwiches, and the rest.
Guests can also expect a 24/7 marketplace “stocked with both healthy and indulgent products”—in case it’s your cheat day.
Plus, of course, lodgers will be able to stream workout videos from rooms—leg warmers not required.
Even hotels, first launched seven years ago, claims to be “the hotel industry’s first and only hotel brand created with wellness at its core.” A dozen other locations are dotted from Brooklyn to Miami to Seattle.
