Woodbine Legacy Investments has completed a $20 million renovation on the W Atlanta Buckhead Hotel.
The 12-story, 291-room full-service hotel has been undergoing the overhaul since May 2018.
“This renovation was definitely more than a makeover—it reinstates the hip, edgy and inspiring experience guests expect from the W brand, especially with Buckhead as the backdrop,” Dupree Scovell, managing partner and chief investment officer for Woodbine, said in a press release Monday.
“The overhaul restored this destination’s shine, ensuring it will remain a hotspot for locals and visitors for years to come.”
W Atlanta Buckhead’s top-to-bottom revamp included the addition of a dedicated welcome area for the Whatever/Whenever concierge team, new furnishings, and a café-style seating arrangement.
The hotel’s 11,000 square feet of flexible indoor/outdoor function space received new furnishings, paint, carpeting, lighting, and artwork.
Its fitness center got a new look with refreshed surfaces and updated artwork and internet throughout the entire hotel was also upgraded.
Guest accommodations—286 guest rooms, 4 WOW Suites and 1 EWOW Suite—were enhanced with new headboards, armoires, damask wallcoverings and carpeting, 55-inch televisions, in-room Nespresso machines and beverage bar, and artwork throughout.
The renovation also removed air-conditioning window units from all guest rooms making room for a window portal and new work/lounge area with a chaise, table, and a cocktail cubby.
Guest bath updates included wallcoverings and new sliding glass doors.
Guest room corridors also have new wallcoverings, carpeting, and lighting throughout.
Rooftop bar Whiskey Blue reopened in November 2018.
Its refresh included new furnishings, flooring, wallcoverings, lighting, artwork, terrace furnishings, and landscaping, as well as changes to the entrance elevator and surrounding rooftop, including a 66-foot walkway mural by Chris Veal.
The second phase of renovation is planned for later in 2019 focusing on the hotel’s restaurant Cook Hall.
W Atlanta Buckhead first opened its doors in 2008.
