We have another piece of the grand SunTrust Park plan: a new high-end, full-service Omni Hotel will be part of the development for the Atlanta Braves, with a signature elevated pool deck and bar overlooking the plaza and ballpark.
The Omni Atlanta Northwest Hotel, a 50-50 venture between the Braves and Omni Hotels & Resorts, will feature 16 floors, approximately 260 guest rooms and suites, rooftop hospitality suites, approximately 12,500 square feet of meeting space and a restaurant. The hotel will serve meeting groups and business and leisure travelers alike, as well as visitors attending Braves games, as well as host events and activities at the mixed-use development.
“Our unique brand of hospitality is a big part of the experience of attending an Atlanta Braves game, and we’re thrilled to have a partner that embodies that same feeling with their guests,” said Terry McGuirk, Atlanta Braves chairman and CEO. “Omni Hotel and Resorts only builds and operates iconic properties in premier destinations. Their presence in this community further enhances our belief that this will be a destination unlike anything in professional sports.”
“It is an honor to partner with a franchise as successful as the Atlanta Braves, and we know this collaboration will attract millions of visitors to Cobb County and SunTrust Park for years to come,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “This new property will visibly reflect the region — everything from the rooms, food, design, décor and amenities.”
SunTrust Park, scheduled to open in 2017, is more than a ballpark: it’s the centerpiece of a mixed-use development that will also include retail, residential, office and dining/entertainment.
The Omni Atlanta Northwest Hotel is expected to break ground later this year, but the hotel will not be fully finished when the ballpark opens.
