Atlanta Braves reveals ballpark hotel plan

0

Major League Baseball (MLB) team the Atlanta Braves and Omni Hotels and Resorts are partnering to develop a new hotel on the 60-acre mixed used development adjacent to SunTrust Park.

The Omni Atlanta Northwest Hotel, which is expected to break ground later this year, will feature 16 floors, approximately 260 finely appointed guest rooms and suites, rooftop hospitality suites, approximately 12,500ft2 of meeting space, a signature restaurant, an elevated pool deck, and a bar overlooking the plaza and ballpark. The hotel will serve meeting groups and business and leisure travelers alike, as well as visitors attending Braves games and the many other events and activities hosted at the mixed-use development.

Located on the 60-acre mixed-use development site, the community will also feature residences and office space, an entertainment venue, retail, and a variety of dining options. The area will be powered by an all-fiber network, which will be the highest-capacity network serving any ballpark and mixed-use community in the USA, and capable of delivering multi-gigabit speeds throughout the entire development.

“Our unique brand of hospitality is a big part of the experience of attending an Atlanta Braves game, and we’re thrilled to have a partner that embodies that same feeling with their guests,” said Terry McGuirk, Atlanta Braves chairman and CEO.

“Omni Hotel and Resorts only builds and operates iconic properties in premier destinations. Their presence in this community further enhances our belief that this will be a destination unlike anything in professional sports.”

SunTrust Park is being developed by the Braves in partnership with Cobb County, the Cobb-Marietta Coliseum and Exhibit Hall Authority and the Cumberland CID, and will be completed by Opening Day 2017. Located in Atlanta at the intersection of I-75 and I-285 in the Cumberland CID, SunTrust Park will flow directly into the surrounding development, with shops, restaurants, offices, residences and entertainment venues that are accessible 365 days a year.

Ground was broken on SunTrust Park on September 16, 2014, and the Omni Atlanta Northwest Hotel is expected to break ground later this year.

The Dallas-based luxury hotel brand has 60 distinct hotels and resorts in leading business gateways and leisure destinations across North America, including the Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center.
