Hilton Worldwide signed a franchise license agreement to bring Candler Hotel Atlanta to Curio - A Collection by Hilton. The landmark Candler building is set to open as Candler Hotel Atlanta, Curio Collection by Hilton in late 2017 following renovations. The property is owned by REM Associates, L.P. and will be managed by Highgate Hotels.
The Candler building was originally developed over a century ago by one of the persons behind Coca-Cola, Asa Candler. When built in the early 1900s, it was Atlanta's first steel skyscraper.
The renovations will transform the former office building into a 265-guestroom hotel with king, double queen and suite rooms. The main level of the hotel will have the Candler Building's Georgia-white marble grand staircase, original Tiffany windows, a restaurant and bar where Mr. Candler's bank was formerly housed, lobby and lounge area. Meeting and event space will be available, as well as an outdoor rooftop space with a view of the city.
The hotel is being developed by Development Services Group and REM is partnering with The Beck Group for design-build architecture and construction services and NICOLEHOLLIS for interior design.
The building is set in Georgia's capital, in Downtown Atlanta or the Historic Business District.
