WoodSpring Hotels' next property is coming to Georgia

WoodSpring Hotels partnered with designer Pragat 1921 to build a new prototype WoodSpring Suites hotel. The property will be located on Highway 138 in Stockbridge, Ga, and will be the fourth WoodSpring Hotels property either open or under development in Metro Atlanta.

“We’re excited to build the beautiful new WoodSpring Suites prototype in Stockbridge and to provide our guests an exceptionally positive experience at a consumer friendly price point,” said Kiran Patel, principal with Pragat 1921. “WoodSpring Hotels has proven their model can drive strong occupancy and profitability in the Atlanta market. We also appreciate the very strong emphasis the company places on maximizing profitability and net operating income.”

The projected opening date for the hotel is Q1 2018. Once completed, the new four-story, 122-room hotel will offer amenities such as in-room kitchens, free high-speed internet, guest laundry and a 99-point cleaning process.
