Renovation includes redesigned rooms, public space enhancement, and high-tech wellness features.
The iconic John Portman-designed Atlanta Marriott Marquis recently debuted an extensive renovation.
The $78 million facelift includes redesigned guest rooms and suites, a public space spruce and modern enhancements to the hotel’s 160,000 square feet of meeting space.
The latest update to Georgia’s largest hotel comes on the heels of a $138 million rejuvenation in 2008, bringing the total investment into the hotel to more than $216 million in less than ten years, according to a statement issued to What Now Atlanta this week.
New, mid-century modern interiors in each of the property’s 1,663 rooms (including 94 suites) aim to create a look more consistent with the hotel’s architecture. Some new features include open closets (“to alleviate fears of leaving clothing behind”) walk‐in upgraded showers replacing bathtubs in king rooms, and multipurpose work surfaces.
In addition, rooms will also feature Smart TVs equiped with Netflix and Hulu and new art installations and sweeping views of the Atlanta skyline.
The hotel’s 94 suites and concierge‐level rooms also received an overhaul including new hardwood floors.
The Marriott Marquis’ multi-level lobby has been spruced with a new layout and modern furnishings, and its concierge lounge received technology upgrades and additional food and beverage offerings. Meeting rooms feature new carpet throughout its 61 meeting rooms and 160,000 square feet of meeting space.
The renovation has also brought two floors of Stay Well™ rooms to the Marquis, making the property one of six in the Marriott portfolio to offer the new concept.
Designed by wellness real estate and technology firm Delos™, Stay Well rooms offer “evidence‐based health and wellness features.” The two floors offer technologies, features and programming services including air purification, circadian lighting, an allergen‐free room sanitation process, vitamin C shower infusers as well as aromatherapy.
