The $70 million, five-story hotel project will rise on a full city block in Midtown Atlanta, one of America’s most dynamic business districts and a regional epicenter for music and arts. The hotel is expected to open in the middle of 2018.
“Midtown Atlanta is the perfect place to debut this visionary, two-in-one lifestyle hotel, which will become a go-to destination for both business and leisure travelers,” said Tony Capuano, Marriott’s Executive Vice President and Global Chief Development Officer. “We’re thrilled to be working with our great partners at Noble to launch these exciting brands in dynamic markets throughout North America.”
With an entrance on 14th Street, the 133-room AC Hotel Atlanta Midtown will feature guestrooms and suites with modern and sophisticated design elements, plush seating and multifunctional workspaces. The 155-room Moxy Atlanta Midtown, which guests will enter on 13th Street, will feature stylish, tech-enabled bedrooms with optional mobile check-in and check-out; keyless entry; motion sensor lighting; internet TV in-room; USB outlets; and furiously fast and free Wi-Fi for ultimate connectivity.
