More than seven years after Forsyth County’s multifaceted lifestyle district broke ground, Halcyon officials say the project’s hotel component is all set to debut.

Now officially christened “Embassy Suites by Hilton Alpharetta Halcyon,” the 160-room lodge is scheduled to open this weekend for guests at developer RocaPoint Partners’ 135-acre answer to Avalon, located about 30 miles north of downtown Atlanta.

Described as a luxury destination, Halcyon’s Embassy Suites includes perks such as an indoor saltwater bromide pool, saunas, a yoga studio, a fitness center, lobby bar, and what’s described as a “vibrant atrium.”

Complimentary breakfasts and a two-hour reception each night with free drinks and snacks are also provided, according to the project’s grand opening announcement.

Room rates this weekend start at $175 nightly for a king bed suite.

After breaking ground in early 2016, the growing Forsyth County shopping and residential district counts two dozen food and beverage concepts, access to 50 acres of preserved greenspace, and a connection to the Big Creek Greenway multi-use trail.

RocaPoint Partners says Halcyon has been a $500-million investment to date.

Halycon’s Embassy Suites is marketed as being 15 minutes from Ameris Bank Amphitheater, an outdoor concert pavilion in Alpharetta. Should a car dealership entrepreneur’s $2-billion vision come to fruition, a Forsyth mini-city with a pro-grade events arena (and just maybe, hockey) would be much closer than that.
