Hilton Atlanta completes multi-million dollar public space, meeting and guest room renovation

Hilton Atlanta, the 1,249-room landmark downtown hotel, unveils the completion of its multi-million-dollar redesign featuring upgraded guest rooms, meeting spaces and public areas. The refresh is the first of a three-phase renovation program slated to be completed by 2018.

Boasting 129,000 square feet of meeting space and increased internet bandwidth, the hotel's second floor now houses two ballrooms - the Grand Salon and Grand Ballroom - and an impressive 23 breakout rooms on one level which allow groups to comfortably host multiple meetings.

A private check-in desk was designed with large groups in mind to offer a centralized hub for group check-ins and registration. Adjacent is a more conveniently located 24-hour Marketplace Café that offers fresh sandwiches, salads and snacks, many of which are sourced by local vendors.

Adjacent to the lobby, a newly unveiled expansive lounge caters to business travelers featuring contemporary décor that incorporate transit-inspired design elements. With Atlanta being known as a "city in a forest" for its dense foliage, guests will notice a modern, cascading chandelier reminiscent of descending leaves upon arrival, followed by a subtle leaf-inspired light fixture perpendicular to vertical mirrors that emulate a forest-like panorama at check-in.

Trader Vic's, Atlanta's only Polynesian tiki lounge, and Nikolai's Roof, an upscale French-Russian-inspired restaurant on the hotel's top floor, boast new libation-inspired private event programming such as Mai Tai mixology classes and vodka tastings. Mainstays in Atlanta's restaurant scene, both have maintained their timeless appeal and remained open for 41 years since the hotel's opening.
