Noble Investment Group Opens Dual-Branded AC Hotel Atlanta Midtown and Moxy Atlanta Midtown

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. January 28, 2019

Noble Investment Group and Marriott International today announce the opening of the dual-branded AC Hotel Atlanta Midtown and Moxy Atlanta Midtown in the heart of Midtown's thriving business and arts district. With a combined 288 rooms and suites, this is the first-ever combination of the AC Hotels by Marriott and Moxy Hotels brands under one roof. These new additions mark the first Moxy Hotel in Georgia and the third AC Hotel in Atlanta (Noble's second after the AC Hotel Atlanta Buckhead at Phipps Plaza).

Developed on an entire city block between 14th street and 13th street flanked by Peachtree Road and West Peachtree Road, the LEED-certified hotels are central to Midtown's business and commerce hub, a few blocks from Georgia Tech University and in the heart of the region's arts district which include The Woodruff Arts Center (High Museum, Alliance Theatre, Symphony Hall), Museum of Design Atlanta, The Fox Theatre and The Savannah College of Art & Design.

"We are thrilled to have two of our lifestyle brands join forces in Atlanta to provide travelers with two very distinct options while visiting the city for business or leisure," said Toni Stoeckl, Vice President, Distinctive Select Service Brands, Marriott International. "With Moxy we threw out the hotel rulebook to create a bold new hotel experience geared toward guests who are looking for shareable, experiential moments when they travel. AC Hotels are designed more for those who want a moment of respite among the hustle and bustle of the city - the opportunity to reflect in an elegant, peaceful space with frictionless service."

Facing 14th Street, the European-inspired AC Hotel Atlanta Midtown offers 133 rooms with sophisticated, sleek design elements; plush seating; and multifunctional workspaces. Playing off the muted palette of the interiors, the hotel showcases abstract sculptures that speak to the motion and fluidity of a dance, inspired by its location in the epicenter of the arts. Neighboring spaces such as the High Museum, Fox Theater, Woodruff Arts Center, Alliance Theatre, and Krog Street Tunnel serve as the inspiration for the hotel's "Gallery of the Arts" concept. A simple, yet sophisticated palette of mixed metals reflect the urban city of Atlanta. Tones of black, white, brass and silver art are harmonized throughout the hotel. Bold mural-style pieces, refined metals and expressive sculptural elements mingle to create movement from dance and theater performances.

Facing 13th Street, the experiential Moxy Atlanta Midtown Hotel offers 155 rooms and communal areas with industrial features including reclaimed pallet ceilings and iron finishes. Guests will check-in at Bar Moxy and be welcomed by a complimentary cocktail, mocktail or coffee. The artwork is playful and captivating, including "Welcome Home," a 54-foot long mural by renowned Atlanta artist, GREG MIKE, which takes center stage in the lobby. Inspired by the "True Colors" mural he painted on Atlanta's iconic Ponce Wall in 2015, this site-specific mural features his signature large format black and white bear peering over couches.

"Both the AC and Moxy hotels have their own distinctive style and vibe which will complement and enhance Midtown Atlanta's standing as a premiere destination for commerce, culture, education, living and visiting," said Tim Dahlen, General Manager.

Human Resources: Confronting a Labor Shortage

With the unemployment rate at its lowest level in decades (3.7%), what has always been a perennial problem for human resource professionals - labor shortage - is now reaching acute levels of concern. It is getting harder to find and recruit qualified applicants. Even finding candidates with the skills to succeed in entry-level positions has become an issue. In addition, employee turnover rates remain extremely high in the hotel industry. As a result of these problems, hotel HR managers are having to rethink their recruitment strategies in order to hire the right talent for the right job. First, hotels have been forced to raise their wages and offer other appealing perks, as a way to attract qualified candidates. Secondly, HR managers are reassessing their interviewing techniques, focusing less on the answers they receive to questions and more on observable behavior. Part of this process includes role-playing during the interview, so that the recruiter can gauge how a candidate works through specific problems and interacts with other team members. Additionally, some HR managers are also creating internal talent pools as a way to address labor shortages. Instead of utilizing department resources to find new hires with specific skills for needed positions, hotels are cultivating talent pools internally and preparing their employees to assume leadership roles whenever the time comes. They are also placing greater emphasis on a company culture that is more performance-based, as a way to curb employee turnover, increase employee satisfaction, and assure higher levels of customer service. Finally, recognizing the importance of employee retention as a way to lessen the impact of a tight labor market, some HR managers are instituting generous reward programs in order to retain their top performers. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these and other issues in their departments.
