The Radisson Atlanta Northwest held its grand opening on Monday, July 21, following a comprehensive renovation earlier this year. The 218-room, 10-floor property is owned by San Diego-based LLJ Frontera Atlanta Ventures and managed by Dallas-based Frontera Hotel Group.
The hotel has 6,600 square feet of meeting space; a full-service restaurant; a lobby bar with 12 large-screen HD televisions; a fitness center with health club-caliber amenities; and a seasonal outdoor swimming pool.
Frontera, which was formed in 2013, now manages 12 hotels in Georgia, Texas, California, and Wisconsin that together are valued at more than $100 million. The company has ownership in two of the properties.
Grand opening ceremonies included dedication of a conference room in the name of Jay Whorton, former associate publisher of the Marietta Daily Journal who was a much respected local leader for almost 45 years. He died in March of this year at age 85.
