A stylish hotel that attracts business travelers during the week and families on weekends.
Soaring 47 stories and offering 1,663 well-appointed guest rooms, Atlanta's largest hotel is a John Portman classic built in 1985 and extensively (and expensively) updated in 2008. Anchoring the Peachtree Center development that Portman pioneered, the hotel draws corporate visitors for its proximity to prominent spots, including Coca-Cola, Deloitte & Touche and the Georgia Dome. The unique atrium is marked by the 50-foot color-changing sail of Pulse, a classically cool cocktail lounge and the centerpiece of the property. This hotel focuses on executives and conventioneers with its well-appointed meeting rooms, which include customized catered menus, high-speed Internet access, teleconferencing, videoconferencing, secretarial services and a multi-lingual staff. The concierge level on floors 42-47 offers additional amenities, yet all rooms have spectacular views. On weekends, families come to take advantage of the hotel's location near the Georgia Aquarium, Imagine it! Children's Museum and the World of Coca-Cola. Additionally, the CNN Center and Underground Atlanta are conveniently nearby. On-site fine dining, directed by the hotel's executive chef Alexander Busch, may be found at Sear Restaurant, where grilled fare is the focus in a modern "man cave" environment. A more casual experience may be had at the High Velocity Sports Bar.
