Marriott International and Noble Investment Group have done a groundbreaking of what will be Marriott’s first-ever combination of an AC and Moxy under one roof. According to a press release, the $70 million, five-story hotel project will rise on a full city block in Midtown Atlanta, and is expected to open in the middle of 2018.
The following is an excerpt from a Noble Investment Group press release:
With an entrance on 14th Street, the 133-room AC Hotel Atlanta Midtown will feature guestrooms and suites with modern and sophisticated design elements, plush seating and multifunctional workspaces. The 155-room Moxy Atlanta Midtown, which guests will enter on 13th Street, will feature stylish, tech-enabled bedrooms with optional mobile check-in and check-out; keyless entry; motion sensor lighting; internet TV in-room; USB outlets; and furiously fast and free Wi-Fi for ultimate connectivity.
Both hotels will have distinct hospitality experiences inside and will share a deck-top amenity level that will contain shared meeting space with outdoor break-out space, health and fitness and a rooftop pool and bar with outdoor fire pits.
As part of this project, Noble will also help establish the missing link in an extensive pedestrian connector. To be called the Arts Walk, the ground-level path will provide direct access for hotel guests and local residents to walk from 14th Street to the lively Crescent Avenue entertainment and dining district, to the more than 20 million square feet of corporate office and the world-renowned Woodruff Arts Center along 15th Street. The connector will eventually stretch from the Woodruff Arts Center to high-speed public transportation at the 10th Street MARTA station.
