Westin Buckhead Atlanta in Georgia starts $9M upgrade

The Westin Buckhead Atlanta will begin phase three of its hotel-wide renovation project this April, remodeling 365 guestrooms. The $9 million room renovations are scheduled to be completed in August. This is the third and final phase of the hotel's three-phase renovation to improve the guest experience, including remodeling the guest rooms, hotel lobby upgrade and renovations of more than 30,000 square-feet of flexible meeting space.

The design scheme and furnishings of the new guestrooms will incorporate the Westin brand philosophy of using natural elements, earth tones and textures. The bathrooms will also be enhanced with new stone and walnut vanities featuring illuminated mirrors. Most king rooms will include a loveseat, which provides additional sleeping space for guests traveling as a family, as well as new 42-inch flat screen televisions. Additionally, to enhance the property’s Heavenly Bed experience, the headboards will feature adjustable LED lights for reading. Furthermore, guests can connect with friends, family and colleagues with outlets accessible at the nightstands and USB connectivity ports provided at the desks.

The recent renovations also enable the Westin Buckhead to accommodate events of any size. The 4,430 square foot Buckhead Ballroom is located on the lobby level and has a modern design. The renovated Grand Ballroom offers Buckhead city views in the pre-function area and features contemporary design accentuated by hand-blown glass chandeliers.

The hotel's smaller event spaces also provide an intimate setting for seated lunches and brunches. The East & West Paces rooms feature an adjoining covered outdoor terrace with teak furniture. Overlooking the main lobby, the mezzanine has window views and accents of Julian Schnabel and Tom Savage collections. Adjoining the mezzanine are the Peachtree and Ansley rooms. In addition, the hotel's central lobby has a communal table of Chamcha hardwood for guests to collaborate with colleagues or relax with a cocktail.
