Winter Opening Planned for New AC Hotel Atlanta Airport Gateway Led by General Manager Jeff Fowler

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. November 11, 2019

AC Hotels by Marriott® announces today the newest addition to its Atlanta portfolio, AC Hotel Atlanta Airport Gateway, with plans to open this winter in the developing Gateway Center in College Park, Ga. Set just beside the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC) and a few steps off of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport's ATL SkyTrain, the new-build property provides unprecedented convenience and affordable luxury for both weekday and weekend Atlanta travelers alike.

AC Hotel Atlanta Airport Gateway is thoughtfully designed for today's entrepreneurial business travelers alongside vacation-goers and weekend warriors, minutes away from the busiest airport in the world, yet far enough for a welcomed escape. From the spacious lobby and AC Kitchen & Lounge to key amenities and a variety of room layouts, each AC property is developed with the traveler in mind and the goal of providing refreshment and rejuvenation.

The hotel will feature 222 guest rooms, including deluxe king and double queen rooms. Spacious floor plans, KORRES bath products and the trademark "Between the Woods" AC scent are complemented by everyday necessities: complimentary WiFi, a well-equipped fitness center and flexible meeting spaces. Begin the day with crispy croissants, fresh cured meats and a variety of European-inspired bites at the AC Kitchen. The centrally located AC Lounge is a bustling community gathering space by day and social haven by night, featuring handcrafted cocktails, such as the signature ACGT Gin and Tonic, delicious tapas and desserts.

"AC is all about removing the friction of travel and offering a seamless experience for guests," says Jeff Fowler, General Manager of AC Hotel Atlanta Airport Gateway. "Considering our proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson, it's an ideal match. We also truly value our local partnerships, and we're excited to be a part of the continued development of the Gateway community and ATL Airport District. It's evident it's establishing itself as more than a pass-through destination."

AC Atlanta Airport Gateway will arrive soon after the opening of Gateway Center Arena, home of the College Park Skyhawks, the Atlanta Hawks G-League affiliate, and host to additional sporting events, concerts, shows, convocations and more - entertaining more than simply the business traveler, just down the street. Airport travelers eliminate the need for rental transportation or rideshare with SkyTrain access, while guests arriving from drive markets have both an entertainment and hospitality destination in one.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
