IHG has completed the renovation of the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia in Georgia. Owned by Hospitality Properties Trust, the hotel is located adjacent to IHG's Americas corporate headquarters. The renovated property is the first of six new global flagships to open.
Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia features design innovations developed for the Crowne Plaza Accelerate brand-transformation program, including the US-patented WorkLife Room design, a concept that caters to guests' blended lifestyles. The hotel also has Plaza Workspace, a flexible work and meeting solution that allows guests and locals to maximize their productivity throughout the property's public spaces.
Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia worked with IHG's Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants to design and develop three restaurant concepts, including Parkwoods, an upscale destination restaurant; Lightwell, a lobby café and bar; and Backyard at Parkwoods, a "picnic and beer" version of the main restaurant. The completion of this outdoor restaurant concept marks the final phase of the property's total transformation.
Backyard at Parkwoods also adds to the hotel's event space. The property has a 12,000-square-foot ballroom—reportedly the biggest in its market—and 32,000 total square feet of meeting space.
The Crowne Plaza brand now has more than 500 hotel properties open or in the pipeline, and six new international flagship hotels scheduled to open by early 2020. The Crowne Plaza brand recently announced new flagship properties opening in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany and Greater China by Q1 2020.
