Two years after their groundbreaking, two Midtown hotel concepts connected by a rooftop bar are now open. 

AC Hotel and Moxy Hotel, located on 14th and 13th streets respectively, are a dual-branded concept that have two distinctive identities. The two hotels are also conjoined by High Note, a rooftop bar and pool, according to a news release about the opening. 

“Both the AC and Moxy hotels have their own distinctive style and vibe which will complement and enhance Midtown Atlanta’s standing as a premiere destination for commerce, culture, education, living and visiting,” the hotels’ general manager Tim Dahlen said in the release.

The hotels, which opened in mid-January, cost approximately $70 million. 

The European-inspired AC Hotel Atlanta Midtown, located on 53 14th Street, consists of 133 rooms and caters to customers seeking a serene environment. The design concept incorporates Midtown's popular art and performance scene, which includes the High Museum of Art, the Fox Theatre and Alliance Theatre.

“AC Hotels are designed more for those who want a moment of respite among the hustle and bustle of the city – the opportunity to reflect in an elegant, peaceful space with frictionless service,” Marriott International's vice president of distinctive select service brands Toni Stoeckl said in the release.

The Moxy Atlanta Midtown, located on 48 13th Street, will feel more at home with Atlanta inspired artwork by artist GREG MIKE. The hotel — the first in Georgia — will consist of 155 rooms and communal areas with a 54-foot “Welcome Home” mural. Guests will also get the luxury treatment: they are expected to be greeted with a complimentary cocktail, mocktail or coffee, according to the release.

“With Moxy we threw out the hotel rulebook to create a bold new hotel experience geared toward guests who are looking for shareable, experiential moments when they travel,” Stoeckl said. 

The two hotels will be conjoined by rooftop pool and bar High Note, which will include cabanas, a meeting space, a health and fitness room and an outdoor entertainment area with fire pits.

The hotels are also the latest addition to Midtown’s everchanging landscape, which includes additional luxury condominiums. The largest Whole Food Store in the Southeast is slated to open next month.
