The Georgia metropolis of Atlanta is soon to be graced with a lavish new hotel edifice situated adjacent to Mercedes-Benz Stadium, a development that is set to significantly alter the downtown skyline.
The eponymous W Hotel, an upscale brand owned by Marriott International, has been under construction since the summer of 2018 and is slated to officially open its doors to the public this fall. The high-rise structure stands at an impressive height of 22 stories, with the topmost level featuring a panoramic rooftop bar.
The edifice is part of a larger project, dubbed the “Home of the Atlanta Falcons,” which encompasses a multi-use entertainment complex. The complex is situated in the vicinity of the stadium, and will include a hotel, retail stores, and numerous dining and entertainment options. This is expected to bring a vital influx of visitors to the area, and to the city as a whole.
The hotel is a notable departure from the traditional architecture that is increasingly ubiquitous in downtown Atlanta. The building features a sleek, modern facade with a series of angled glass panels and a large, illuminated atrium. The interior decor is equally modern and luxurious, with a color palette consisting of blues, greens, and grays.
The development of the W Hotel is a testament to the commitment of the city of Atlanta to bring an influx of visitors and revenue to the downtown area. With the opening of the hotel, the skyline of the city is sure to be drastically altered – and for the better.
