USA, Atlanta, Georgia. January 09, 2019

Canopy by Hilton, Hilton's (NYSE: HLT) lifestyle brand, officially announces the opening of its bustling Midtown Atlanta location. The hotel is partially owned and operated by Concord Hospitality, developed by Greystar and Whitman.

Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown, which is the first lifestyle hotel of its kind in Georgia, will offer guests thoughtfully-curated local experiences from check-in to check-out.

“Opening this hotel in Atlanta has been such an exciting project,” said Vincent Bucci, chief enthusiast at Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown. “Since breaking ground, we have watched this neighborhood change before our eyes and have become a part of the amazing community of people here. We cannot wait for visitors from all over the world to experience the same Southern hospitality we have come to know and love here in the capital of the South.”

“We are thrilled to introduce Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown as one of our premier properties in the Southeast. Known for its vibrant history, rich culture and community-focused neighborhoods, Atlanta is a natural fit to welcome to the Canopy family,” said Gary Steffen, global head of Canopy by Hilton. “We are delighted to bring our locally-inspired lifestyle brand to this cosmopolitan city and look forward to sharing the Canopy experience with our guests and neighbors in the heart of Atlanta.”

Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown is home to 176 “Just-Right” rooms, including four spacious suites.

For meetings and events, Atlanta is an ideal choice as it is the location of one of the world's most-traveled airports, Hartsfield Jackson, located just 14 miles away from Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown. The hotel has three meeting rooms, offering intimate meetings capabilities as well as a unique outdoor venue for social events such as cocktail receptions.

At Canopy by Hilton, every guest will experience a uniquely curated, local stay.

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
