Château Élan Winery and Resort Re-Opening for Memorial Day Weekend

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. May 18, 2020

North Atlanta's Château Élan, renowned for its award-winning winery and world class hospitality, will reopen on May 21, 2020 following the temporary closure of The Inn and certain resort amenities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The reopening will happen in phases, with overnight hotel services and most on-site venues, including several restaurants, available for enjoyment starting Memorial Day weekend. The Spa at Château Élan, swimming pools and some dining venues will reopen shortly after in early June.

During the closure, the resort restructured services and amenities to comply with new state and CDC guidelines for proper social distancing and hygiene. This comprehensive initiative, dubbed Experience Chateau Clean, includes signage directing people to be six feet apart, hygienic seals on guestroom doors, automatic cleaning touch pads, the use of electrostatic disinfectant sprayers and alterations to dining spaces. These new protocols have been achieved while retaining the same standards for luxury and warm Southern hospitality the resort is acclaimed for.

"We have taken great care to make the resort and winery environments where our guests can enjoy peace of mind while they relax, play sports and indulge in fine wine and cuisine," said Neville Erasmus, general manager of Château Élan Winery & Resort. "I must congratulate our staff for all of the hard work they are doing behind the scenes to create a seamless guest experience."

A wide array of activities are offered for guests and daily visitors at Château Élan, which recently completed a transformative $25 million renovation. The Golf Club and Cliff Drysdale Tennis Center, which have remained opened, as well as hiking trails, provide a chance to exercise while admiring the beauty of the resort's 3,500 acres. The winery's extremely popular wine tastings, in addition to resort cooking classes and other small-scale events continue to be offered as well (online reservations required). A full list of upcoming events and classes is available on Château Élan's Facebook page.

For those looking to plan their next getaway, there are several hotel packages that combine luxurious accommodations, exciting activities and resort credits that can be applied toward dining, golf, spa and other amenities. The Got2Getaway Package presents a great value, offering a three night stay for the price of two and a $25 resort credit (see website for pricing), while the Summer Lovin' Escape is the perfect two-night couple's getaway, starting at $259 per night (based on double occupancy).

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
