The Burgess Hotel has soft-opened in Atlanta, designed by CEO and design principal Kimberly Miller of Duncan Miller Ullmann (DMU). The grand opening will be held in January.
The $15 million project, part of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts' Trademark Collection soft brand, has 102 guestrooms, including seven suites inspired by international destinations and a themed penthouse. Design-wise, the property combines personal and cultural elements with contemporary style. The residential style rooms incorporates wood flooring, contemporary clean lines, bold textures, and custom artwork, all tied together with Frette linens and bath amenities from fashion house Shanghai Tang.
DMU also curated the open concept lobby, restaurant, bar, meeting space and fitness center which all maintain a similar look. The hotel also has a fitness center and meeting spaces as well as an outdoor pool.
Apicii Hospitality Group curates the food and beverage concepts—FIA and Mr. B. Bar. FIA will have seats for 68 guests. Mr. B. Bar is adjacent to the restaurant, named in honor of Freny’s late father Keki Bunshah, who organized the first Indian expedition to Mount Everest. Photographs from his climbing expeditions are in the lounge. Mr. B. is anchored by a 60-seat bar/lounge area that incorporate a library with a fireplace.
The hotel also showcases custom artwork designed by Jessica Jokhi, a Chicago-based artist.
