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.

Mobile Technology: Meeting Tech Expectations

What once seemed futuristic is now the norm, owing to the escalating developments in mobile technology, and hotels must continue to innovate in order to meet guest expectations. In a recent study from Mower, 65 percent of guests said they would gladly pay more for a hotel that provides the mobile technology they deem essential. The same study shows that 44 percent of travelers are more likely to book a smart hotel, and nearly 7 in 10 want to use smart devices provided by the hotel. And how do guests wish to use all this technology? A majority expressed a desire for mobile check-in and check-out, and mobile payment options. They also want to be able to stream content from their phone to the TV; to make service requests of the hotel staff; to control in-room lighting, temperature and sound; to order food and beverages; and to request a wake-up call - all from their mobile device. Guests also expressed preferences for robust wi-fi and convenient device charging ports throughout the hotel. They also appreciate the use of hotel branded apps which allow a guest to book a room, access loyalty programs, receive discounts and rewards, and even use the app to choose the room, floor and view they prefer. Some hotel apps also allow a customer to track their charges throughout their stay, rather than waiting to receive a bill at the end. Finally, mobile tech lounges are popping up more frequently in some hotels. These lounges offer guests the opportunity to perform tasks like airline check-ins or access to local info guides, but they also provide a place where guests can comfortably get some work done outside their room. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to meet their customers' expectations in the mobile technology space.
