Marriott International, Inc. has opened the 403-room Atlanta Airport Marriott Gateway, a newly constructed hotel adjacent to the Georgia International Convention Center and connected to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
The Atlanta Airport Marriott Gateway is on track to earn LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The hotel will be operated under a management agreement with Grove Street Partners.
“We are so proud to introduce this state-of-the-art hotel to the Atlanta market as a shining example of our iconic Marriott Hotels brand,” says Erika Alexander, area vice president, Marriott International. “Having had a major presence in the community for over 45 years, we recognize Atlanta as one of the most dynamic cities in the United States. This new Marriott hotel reflects the future of this vibrant community.”
Two minutes from the airport via the ATL SkyTrain and part of the Atlanta Gateway complex, this eco- and tech-friendly meeting destination features more than 21,000 square feet of flexible meeting space. The hotel’s meeting space includes the 12,000-square-foot Gateway Ballroom, which Marriott says is the largest hotel ballroom in the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport area.
The hotel is connected by a covered walkway to the adjacent Georgia International Convention Center. Together, both venues provide 321,000 square feet of meeting space. The Gateway Marriott hotel is also equipped with a GoThere Virtual Meetings studio, in partnership with AT&T TelePresence Solution, using Cisco TelePresence technology, making it the only hotel in Atlanta to provide this virtual-meeting technology.
Its lobby is a social hub showcasing a Media Zone with complimentary Wi-Fi to work alone or catch up with clients, friends or co-workers. Relaxing spaces provide a place to dine or to partake of refreshments from the day-to-night bar, which transitions from coffee and pastries in the morning to cocktails and appetizers in the evening. The menu design allows guests to order food based on how quickly they need it – in 5, 10 or 20 minutes.
