In Atlanta, two hotels have upgraded their look. Here is what’s new at The Burgess Hotel in Buckhead and W Atlanta-Buckhead.
Rebranding Kicks off for Boutique Atlanta Hotel
Highgate Hotels has started its $11-million renovation of an established boutique hotel to coincide with the owner’s rebranding of what will soon be known as The Burgess Hotel in Buckhead, a residential district in Atlanta.
The Burgess Hotel will receive a property wide redesign with an update to the hotel’s 100 guestrooms and bathrooms, new furnishings throughout, a revamped lobby with a new first floor layout, and the addition of a presidential suite, as well as exterior work, new windows and upgraded HVAC. The renovation will also include a new full-service destination restaurant, a separate lobby bar with adjacent lounge, on-site meeting rooms, a fitness center and an outdoor pool.
Cumming has been engaged by Highgate Hotels to oversee all pre-construction phases of the renovation to ensure a seamless delivery of The Burgess Hotel. Work on The Burgess Hotel began early fall and is expected to be completed by January 2019.
Renovation Begins for W Atlanta-Buckhead
Woodbine Legacy Investments (WLI) launched a $20-million renovation on W Atlanta-Buckhead, a 12-story, 291-room full-service luxury hotel in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood. The renovation began in May and will be complete in late December, just weeks before the city hosts Super Bowl LIII.
Woodbine hired C+TC Studio of Atlanta as the architect and interior designer for guestrooms and the hotel’s rooftop bar, Whiskey Blue; Studio 11 of Dallas as the interior designer for the lobby, public areas and meeting space; and Genoa Construction as the general contractor for the project.
There will be an updated welcome area with new furnishings. The hotel’s 11,000 sq. ft. of flexible indoor/outdoor meeting and event space, guestrooms, fitness center and rooftop bar will all receive updates. In addition, Woodbine is upgrading all internet cables for faster connectivity throughout the hotel. A second phase of renovation will commence in 2019, which will focus on the hotel’s restaurant, Cook Hall.
