A peek inside the TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database reveals that Atlanta, Georgia will see a slew of new properties in the coming years, with Element Hotels leading the way.
50 new hotels with 10,429 rooms are planned for Atlanta, Georgia, according to our dedicated research team. We take a closer look at what’s coming up.
Atlanta hotel openings by year
Before 2020 runs out, two more hotels with 363 rooms will launch in Atlanta. However, only one of them is already in the pre-opening phase.
With 18 scheduled launches and 2,789 new rooms, 2021 will be a busy year – and 2022 won’t slow down by much, with a further 16 projects and 3,817 keys in the pipeline. Only five properties with 963 rooms are already pencilled in for 2023, and nine hotels with 2,497 keys are on the cards for 2024 and beyond.
The majority of these hotel projects (38) will be in the four-star segment, while 12 will be in the five-star bracket.
Noteworthy hotel openings in Atlanta
Marriott International’s Element brand is the fastest growing flag in Atlanta, with four ongoing projects that will add 626 rooms to the city’s offering.
Element by Westin Atlanta Midtown will offer 128 rooms once it opens in Q2 2021. It’ll be part of a dual-branded property that will also feature a 154-key Courtyard by Marriott hotel. Marriott partnered with Noble Investment Group to realise this project in one of the city’s key business districts.
Atlanta’s Buckhead neighbourhood, meanwhile, will also be home to a new Element property soon. Due to open in late 2020, this 166-room hotel will sit next to a mixed-use apartment project by the same developer, Mill Creek Residential Trust. Fusion AI Design and NBJ Architecture will handle Element Buckhead’s appearance, ensuring the scheme showcases the same immaculate attention to detail that guests have come to expect from the brand.
Next up, a 157-room property is planned close to Atlanta city centre. Set to open in Q4 2021, Element Downtown Atlanta is being developed in partnership with HOS Management of Georgia. LPBC Architectures out of nearby Lawrenceville has been charged with designing the property, which will offer guests convenient access to Centennial Olympic Park, Pemberton Place and the Georgia World Congress Centre.
Interestingly, the 175-key Element Sandy Springs in the city’s north is also being designed by LPBC Architectures, and developed with Noble Investment Group. An opening date is scheduled for early 2022. Upon completion, guests will be able to quickly drive to DeKalb Peachtree Airport or take the nearby Parkway to get downtown in a matter of minutes.
