Canopy by Hilton Says Hello to Atlanta Midtown
Hilton’s New Lifestyle Brand to Open in Atlanta’s “Heart of the Arts” Neighborhood
ATLANTA and MCLEAN, Va. – Feb. 1, 2017 – Hilton (NYSE: HLT), Greystar Real Estate Partners, Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company and Whitman Peterson announced today development plans for Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown. The project, featuring Hilton’s new hotel brand that redefines the lifestyle hotel category, has broken ground and is scheduled to open in summer 2018. The property will provide a comfortable stay for guests in search of thoughtful local experiences in Atlanta’s vibrant Midtown neighborhood.
Located at 1414 West Peachtree Street, the 176-room hotel, which includes four spectacular suites, will offer 3,000 square feet of innovative, flexible meeting space with an adjacent board room and elevated outdoor terrace. The spacious new rooms will include wood flooring, walk-in tile showers and local art highlighting Atlanta’s unique and exceptional character.
Following the brand pillars, Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown will be inspired and influenced by its local surroundings, and will be a natural extension of the neighborhood. Guests can expect a thoughtfully curated local food and beverage menu that will highlight Atlanta’s exceptional cuisine as well as an artisanal breakfast and Wi-Fi to be included in the room rate.
Located in the heart of Midtown, the epicenter of Atlanta’s thriving arts scene, Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown will be steps away from the High Museum of Art, Ferst Center for the Arts and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The hotel is part of a larger mixed-use project in conjunction with Greystar’s Ascent Midtown residences, a 328-unit luxury multifamily tower set to open in summer 2018. Both buildings will sit alongside some of Atlanta’s most iconic buildings, including Bank of America Plaza, the tallest building in Atlanta, and Symphony Tower, arguably the most notable fixture in the Atlanta skyline.
“Canopy by Hilton fits seamlessly into Atlanta’s Midtown District,” said Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton. “Known by locals as the ‘Heart of the Arts’, Midtown Atlanta mirrors our Canopy brand ethos. With its booming arts and entertainment scene and Piedmont Park in its back yard, the Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown property will offer guests a truly fresh and local Atlanta experience.”
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Hilton, Concord Hospitality and Whitman Peterson on such an exciting project,” said John Roberson, senior director of development for Greystar. “Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown is thoughtfully designed to complement Midtown’s vibrant neighborhood with a curated café along West Peachtree Street, bicycles available for guests and walkable access to the Arts Center MARTA station.”
“From the High Museum of Art to Symphony Tower, Midtown Atlanta attracts a mix of business and leisure travelers, making this an ideal community for the Canopy by Hilton concept,” said Mark Laport, president and CEO of Concord Hospitality. “As the area continues to grow, so does the demand for a contemporary and connected hotel designed with guest needs in mind. Canopy by Hilton could not be a better fit and we are excited to team with Greystar to help ensure that this hotel represents the highest in quality accommodations in the Atlanta market.”
