Having risen from the ashes of the Georgia Dome, Atlanta’s tallest new hotel tower in decades is pulling back the curtain on exactly what it will offer—and accepting reservations more than 10 months in advance.
The Signia by Hilton Atlanta project topped out at 40 stories and 453 feet tall in March, marking the tallest building on the city’s Westside and Atlanta’s largest ground-up hotel development in nearly 40 years.
Offering a whopping 976 hotel rooms, the Signia has started taking reservations for stays beginning March 15 next year, officials announced today.
Nightly rates begin at $300 for a double-queen room with city views. On-site parking is another $50 per day.
The hotel’s proximity to Mercedes-Benz Stadium and State Farm Arena will be reflected in a sports-bar concept with stadium views called The Nest on Four.
An elevated pool area will also face The Benz—with a large bar called Highball—which could make for interesting pregame festivities before Falcons and Atlanta United night games.
Six total food and beverage concepts are planned across the property, including signature restaurant Capolinea and daytime eatery Homespun.
Elsewhere will be more than 100,000 square feet of meeting space, an outdoor events lawn, three boardrooms, and what Hilton officials are calling Georgia’s largest hotel ballroom, dubbed Triumph.
Also in the mix are a spa, beauty bar, and fitness center with yoga stations and Peloton bikes.
The Signia’s 975-room count ranks it between the fifth largest hotel in Atlanta (Omni Atlanta Hotel: 1,038 rooms) and the current sixth (Sheraton Atlanta Hotel: 749 rooms).
The Signia will be Atlanta’s fifth tallest all-hotel tower. That category is led by the 73-story Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, a John Portman-designed building completed in 1976 that’s still Atlanta’s fifth-tallest building overall.
The Signia project, which will be owned by GWCCA, is the most visible part of the convention center’s 2020 Vision master plan, a sweeping campus redo. The Gensler-designed hotel was on track to launch construction in late spring 2020, just after Atlanta’s planned (and cancelled) NCAA Final Four basketball crowds had cleared out of downtown. But COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns and subsequent economic instability derailed that timeline.
