Renovation of Hilton Atlanta
The 30-storey Hilton Atlanta hotel connects to the neighbouring Marriott Marquis hotel via a pedestrian sky bridge.
The bridge also provides direct access to the MARTA transit station.
The bridge is part of the hotel’s atrium, which has been given a new stone floor.
A freestanding row of columns of split-faced stone with millwork finish encircle the atrium along with a new pendant light fixture.
The lobby features a redesigned front. The reception has a granite floor, rugs and a carpeted lounge area.
The renovated guestrooms feature a decor of ebony wood while the bathrooms have granite vanities and pendant lighting. The hotel’s conference centre has been upgraded into an eco-friendly function and meeting space.
