Hilton Atlanta Completes MICE-Focused Renovation

Hilton Atlanta, a 1,249-room downtown hotel, has announced the completion of its multi-million-dollar redesign with 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.

With 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 23 breakout rooms on one level, which allow groups to host multiple meetings. Targeting groups with visual projection demands, the reconfigured Grand Salon has newly expanded 22 feet of additional ceiling height and pillarless infrastructure. 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.

Designed by New York City-based architecture and interior design firm Stonehill & Taylor, the hotel’s newly unveiled design aims to honor 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 lounge caters to business travelers with contemporary décor that incorporates 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 leaf-inspired light fixture perpendicular to vertical mirrors that emulate a forest-like panorama at check-in.

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