Choice Hotels International announced its plans for a future Comfort Suites hotel in downtown Atlanta with franchisee Atlanta Underground LLC. — the first-ever Choice brand hotel for the city. The future hotel will be co-owned by management company Excel Hotel Group and restoration and renovation company S&A Industries.
“We’re thrilled to be building a Comfort Suites hotel in downtown Atlanta and we’re confident that are travelers as well as the local community here will love what this hotel will have to offer,” said Evens Charles, president and chief executive officer of Frontier Development and Hospitality Group, co-owner of the future Comfort Suites hotel. “Comfort Suites is exactly the kind of contemporary and thoughtfully-designed hotel brand that’s perfect for this growing area of Atlanta’s downtown.”
To be located at 54 Peachtree Street, the current building planned for the future home of the 156-suite hotel boasts an historic first five floors, having originally been constructed over 100 years ago, with an additional 11 floors added prior to the city’s 1996 Summer games, most recently serving as student housing facilities for nearby Georgia State University. Unique renovation plans for the property would also make the hotel the first-ever adaptive re-use project for the Comfort Suites brand.
