ATLANTA - Alpharetta, Georgia’s first boutique hotel, The Hamilton Curio Collection by Hilton, officially opens today in the heart of the city. Recognized as the “#1 Place to Relocate in America” by Forbes and listed in the “Top 15 Friendliest Cities” by Southern Living, Alpharetta’s popularity is booming and The Hamilton further adds to the allure of the city. At The Hamilton, the bustle of Atlanta meets the ease of Downtown Alpharetta, uniting the comfort of the familiar with the excitement of the new. The Hamilton is owned and developed by Mayfair Street Partners and managed by Hotel Equities.
The hotel offers guests a refined, gracious and intriguing experience. Using the Western & Atlantic Railway as the inspiration behind the decor, The Hamilton has a historical feel that highlights traditional Southern hospitality and vintage elements, coupled with modern-day designs and top-of-the-line furnishings and technology. The entertainment destination has the exclusive, hush-hush atmosphere of a Roaring Twenties speakeasy, which further lends to the historical theme. A spirit of connection, service and entertainment runs deep through The Hamilton’s bones.
“After almost four years to the day, we couldn’t be more honored and proud to open this landmark boutique hotel in downtown Alpharetta,” said Jason Joseph, managing director and partner, Mayfair Street Partners. “I’m confident we have accomplished what we originally set out to do in adding not just a hotel, but a center point and destination for the City of Alpharetta — and a critical part of the City’s master plan. We can’t thank the city staff and city officials enough for their tireless efforts alongside our great team to make this a reality.”
“We are grateful and honored to open this hotel alongside Mayfair Street Partners,” said Brad Rahinsky, president and CEO, Hotel Equities. “The Hamilton is a cornerstone in the city of Alpharetta, a destination our community can be proud of for generations to come. I couldn’t be more proud of the hotel’s general manager, Kenneth Washington and the entire team for their commitment to ensuring no stone was left unturned, as they welcome their long-awaited first guests this week. I look forward to witnessing how The Hamilton creates even more excitement and one-of-a-kind experiences in our bustling city.”
Redefining Southern Hospitality
Guests are encouraged to step into The Hamilton and feel the world slow down. Through a sophisticated hospitality approach, a core Southern value, the team at The Hamilton ensures guests feel like family. The Hamilton features two distinct dining options with menus highlighting southern French cuisine, including Carrie’s Conservatory (“CC’s”) offering an abundance of natural light for breakfast and lunch dining, and Fulton House for a more intimate evening setting. Both outlets provide guests with a full bar experience and a curated wine program.
Old School Elements, New School Style
Classic architecture mixed with industrial elements and contemporary trends describe the hotel’s décor. Rich colors of blues and greys and heavy textures can be spotted throughout the hotel’s lobby, 119 rooms and suites and on-property amenities. The inviting rooms provide comfort at every level from the deluxe bedding and cozy robes and slippers, to oversized HDTVs and complimentary internet. Arch Studio 7 of Winston-Salem, NC provided exterior design for the hotel. RBA Architecture firm of Charlotte, NC served at the architect and Atlanta-based Evergreen Construction served as the general contractor.
Next Level Entertainment
Roaring Social, a speakeasy-inspired venue, brings guests back 100 years in time with a quick trip down the elevator. In addition to live entertainment, curated music, bar bites and signature cocktails, Roaring Social also features eight boutique bowling lanes.
Meet + Mingle
Diverse meeting rooms, event spaces and an outdoor terrace courtyard provide groups of all sizes the opportunity to reconnect. The meeting spaces and wedding venues, which can hold up to 200 guests, offer cutting-edge technology and catering from the in-house culinary team.
