A well-known DeKalb County hotel will undergo a posh upgrade making it the flagship property of the luxury Crowne Plaza brand, company officials said.
The Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia is set to open its doors in early 2019 with a sleeker, modern reveal.
Managed by IHG and owned by Hospitality Properties Trust (HPT), the Dunwoody hotel’s upgrade is part of the company’s $200 million investment to make the Crowne Plaza brand more attractive to guests, an IHG spokeswoman said in an email.
The hotel, near Perimeter Mall, has been a Crowne Plaza property since 1991. Construction on its new interior began Aug. 6, the IHG spokeswoman said. It completely closed in September to complete renovations.
Upgrades to the hotel include an updated restaurant and bar and lobby area. Hotel rooms will also get modernized upgrades and include padded headboards. Future guests will also enjoy a beer garden and 24-hour marketplace.
The hotel is also upgrading its 32,000 square-foot meeting space and 12,000 square-foot ballroom.
