Three P Partners has selected hospitality management company Davidson Hospitality Group to manage Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Bellyard.

The 161-room boutique hotel is expected to open this year and will be managed by Davidson’s lifestyle operating vertical, Pivot.

Bellyard is located within the $450m modern mixed-use development, The Interlock, in the West Midtown neighborhood in Atlanta.

It will feature Drawbar, an upscale American tavern; an outpost of Saint-Germain Bakery; a rooftop pool and bar concept which is operated by Slater Hospitality.

Other amenities include 8,000ft² of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space.

Davidson Hospitality Group president Thom Geshay said: “It is truly an honour to be involved in such an important, revitalising development here in our hometown of Atlanta with partners we respect so much.

“Bellyard will be the first hotel to open in this bustling, entertainment and shopping hotspot. Through relentless passion for delivering bold, memorable experiences, we look forward to not just meeting, but exceeding the expectations of our partners at Three P Partners.”

The name Interlock was derived from the Howell Interlocking Historic District.

Three P Partners partner Chip Patterson said: “Based on our firsthand experience, the Pivot team has demonstrated their superior operational approach at Hotel Bella Grace in Charleston and we are confident that the team will continue to innovate and deliver the same level of excellence for this unparalleled new hotel.

“In partnership with a best-in-class lifestyle operator, we are excited to create an inventive journey for guests that celebrates the hard-work and character of the historical stockyards that shaped the landscape of West Midtown and Atlanta at large.”
