ATLANTA - Embassy Suites Atlanta Midtown and accompanying restaurant, Brickstone’s Restaurant and Bar, are now open across from Atlantic Station. The 181-key, new-build hotel and street-level restaurant are uniquely positioned to accommodate business and leisure travelers alike, with modern spaces designed for business meetings and lunches, gatherings with friends, happy hours and more.
Embassy Suites Atlanta Midtown introduces a new, amenity-rich hotel to the growing Midtown submarket. Despite the hit the hospitality industry took as a result of the pandemic, hotels have shown a resurgence and the desire for “revenge travel” is strong. The opening announcement comes on the heels of the hotel’s recent acquisition by leading investment specialist Certares Management LLC in partnership with Highlands Investments and Monomoy Property Ventures. HEI Hotels & Resorts (HEI), a leading hospitality management company, was tapped to operate the property.
“While it’s no secret the pandemic significantly impacted the hospitality industry, we are bullish about the Atlanta market, specifically the economic fundamentals in Midtown and around Atlantic Station,” said Ted Darnall, partner and CEO of lodging and technical services at HEI. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to introduce this high-quality hotel to the neighborhood and look forward to providing our guests with a best-in-class experience.”
The all-suites hotel offers modern amenities to accommodate a variety of traveler’s needs, featuring expansive suites with a private kitchenette and separate living room area; high interior design finishes including an Instagram-worthy green wall in the lobby; large fitness area and pool; 2,600 square feet of meeting space; and proximity to Microsoft’s new eastern U.S. headquarters, Georgia Tech’s main Atlanta campus and Overtime Elite, a transformative new sports facility at Atlantic Station. Additionally, every evening guests are invited to enjoy complimentary drinks and light bites at the signature evening reception.
With the hotel’s ideal location across from West Midtown’s premier mixed-use destination, hotel guests have the option to choose from a variety of experiential packages featuring Atlantic Station’s restaurants and retailers, including:
- Perfect Strike – Bring on the friendly competition with a $150 gift certificate for Bowlero and a voucher for two beers at Brickstone’s Bar.
- Sip & Sweat – Energize with two passes to LA Fitness and a $25 gift card to B-Fresh Smoothie Bar.
- Something Sweet – Indulge your sweet tooth with a $50 gift card to IT’Sugar and a $25 gift card to Kilwin’s Ice Cream & Chocolate.
- Refresh & Recharge – Rejuvenate and pamper with a complimentary yoga class by ATL Kula and a $50 gift card to Lush Nail Bar.
- Sip & Skate – Just in time for the holiday season, enjoy two passes to Skate the Station and a $25 food and beverage credit per day to Brickstone’s Restaurant and Bar.
“The booming Midtown neighborhood has so much to offer and Atlantic Station serves as the ultimate amenity for the hotel,” said Steven Kuehn, general manager of Embassy Suites Atlanta Midtown. “By simply crossing the street, our guests will have access to experiential dining, shopping and entertainment options. Whether here for business or leisure, the possibilities are endless to amplify your stay.”
