Noble Investment Group Thursday held an official ribbon cutting and grand opening of its new LEED-certified Courtyard by Marriott Atlanta Midtown and Element by Westin Atlanta Midtown — the “first-ever” combination of the Courtyard by Marriott and Element by Westin brands under one roof.
Located on the intersection of Ponce de Leon Avenue and Peachtree Street, the hotels bring a combined 282 new rooms and suites and the Ponce Room Bar & Kitchen to Midtown, at 640 2 Peachtree Street.
“Noble is excited to continue expanding our more than 25-year partnership with Marriott with the development of the first of its kind, dual-branded Courtyard by Marriott and Element by Westin hotels,” Mit Shah, Noble’s CEO, said in a press release. “These hotels are the perfect fit for Midtown Atlanta, one of the best live, work, stay, and play communities in America. Over nearly thirty years, we are proud to have invested more than a billion dollars in our hometown, bringing nearly two dozen first-class hotels to the Atlanta area and creating thousands of jobs throughout our community.”
Featuring 158 guestrooms, Courtyard by Marriott Atlanta Midtown is “designed to accommodate travelers with multitasking, 24/7 lifestyle” with amenities like a “designated in-room workstation and a multitude of electrical outlets ensure connection and creation can happen from anywhere at any time.”
Featuring 124 guestrooms, Element by Westin Atlanta Midtown offers spacious guestrooms and signature Heavenly Beds, fully equipped full-size kitchens with health-forward snacks found at Restore, the hotel’s 24-hour pantry, and spa-inspired bathrooms featuring vegan and cruelty-free products from Pharmacopia. Guests get Element’s signature Rise complimentary breakfast, and the property is pet-friendly for dogs weighing up to 40 pounds — the hotel will provide a dog bed, food, water bowls, clean-up supplies, and more as part of its “Love that Dog” program.
The hotel also offers the “Element Studio Commons” option for groups. “Anchored by four private bedrooms, guests can cook, collaborate, and relax together in a shared kitchen and living room area, allowing them to live as they do at home without having to compromise space, comfort, or amenities.”
In addition to the hotels, the 14-story building houses a four-story parking garage as well as The Ponce Room Bar & Kitchen, an on-site eatery treating guests and locals alike to craft cocktails and southern fare such as pimento cheese and pork belly sandwiches led by Executive Chef Matthew Montandon.
