Dunwoody Continues Growth as a Travel Destination Amid Pandemic, Celebrates New Hotels' Milestones

Hyatt Place Perimeter Center Opens, Welcoming First Travelers Over Labor Day Weekend

USA, Dunwoody, Georgia. September 14, 2020

Dunwoody, the thriving ‘urban-burb' located above Atlanta, today announced the opening of its newest hotel, Hyatt Place Perimeter Center. Joining the destination's seven existing properties that cater to leisure and business travelers alike, the 176-room property is ideally located in the city's Perimeter Center. In addition to Hyatt Place, AC Hotel Atlanta Perimeter Center celebrated the end of vertical construction in August, marked with a socially distanced "topping off" celebration. When it opens in 2021, the hotel will feature the city's first rooftop bar.

"We are excited to officially welcome Hyatt Place Perimeter Center to Dunwoody," said Kimberly Franz, marketing director for Discover Dunwoody, the city's destination marketing organization. "We are extremely proud of the resilience and adaptability all our hotel partners have shown in pushing through challenges brought on by the pandemic. Each of these properties offer invaluable and safe experiences for travelers visiting the destination whether they are visiting for a business trip or weekend getaway, and our community looks forward to welcoming these travelers whenever they are ready to visit."

Opened just in time for Labor Day Weekend, Hyatt Place Perimeter Center features a modern design complete with a state-of-the-art fitness center, a bar serving regionally inspired food and cocktails and a market with grab-and-go items. In addition to offering top-notch amenities in a contemporary and comfortable environment, the hotel's superior cleanliness and safety protocols make it a wonderful choice for visitors from all over.

Last month, the city also celebrated the "topping off" for the new seven-story, 156-room AC Hotel set to open summer 2021. When it opens across from Perimeter Mall, the property will be complete with modern and inviting elements including the area's first rooftop bar that will be open year-round serving guests and locals tapas-style bites, cocktails, local craft beers and specialty wines. Guests at the hotel will also enjoy a library complete with a collection of novels handpicked by guest curators, a seventh-floor lounge for gathering with friends and colleagues, a high-quality fitness center, specialty continental breakfast and a market with locally-sourced items for on-the-go.

Despite COVID-19 challenges, the destination is perfectly positioned for a strong recovery. City hotels are reporting occupancy rates close to 35 percent, up from around 10 percent in April, showing a promising increase in the demand for travel to Atlanta's first edge city. Dunwoody expects the new hotels will continue to drive travel to the destination and position Dunwoody as a top destination for business and leisure travel near Atlanta.

Guest Service: Health and Safety First

Though expectations are that hotels will return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021, their highest priority must continue to be the health and safety of guests and employees. To that end, hotels are training their guest service personnel in enhanced cleaning routines, which include the following practices - bathrooms, elevator buttons, remote controls and other high-touch items, are disinfected and cleaned with a higher frequency; all tables, chairs and menus in restaurants are cleaned at a much higher frequency, and after each seating; floor markers in public areas to remind guests and team members to maintain physical distance; hand alcohol stations and disposable gloves in lobbies and restaurants; loose items such as pens, note pads and information material removed from rooms and meeting rooms; limiting the number of seats in restaurants and public areas; and revised food & beverage offerings. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will review how guest service personnel are being trained to maintain health and safety protocols in their operations.
