The Alpharetta City Council has approved, with conditions, revised plans for the Cotton House Hotel, a “boutique hotel” to be built on the northwest corner of Milton Avenue and Old Canton Street in the downtown area.
The applicant, VS Milton Retail LLC, revised its plans after the Planning Commission recommended denial of the project Nov. 2, according to a staff memo to the council. At that meeting, residents expressed concerns about traffic, the building’s height and massing, and the closing of Old Canton for the project.
The revised plan proposes a hotel of 119 rooms, four stories and 56 feet in height, lowered from the prior 120 rooms, five floors and 60 to 67 feet. Old Canton will remain open,
According to the applicant, the property will be a Curio Collection by Hilton or a Hotel Indigo by IHG. It will have a fitness center, meeting space, retail shop, restaurant, day spa and 132 valet parking spaces. The applicant had sought a rezoning from C-2 to DT-C (downtown commercial) to allow the boutique hotel.
