Just in time for the broadscale return to in-person meetings and conferences, Dimension Hospitality presents Cobb County’s second largest hotel ballroom at the Atlanta Marriott, Northwest at Galleria. The new facility features 25,000 square feet of space, including a divisible 11,000 square foot grand ballroom, outdoor terraces, and an event lawn, capable of accommodating up to 1,200 guests.
“Guests and meeting planners told us that they wanted a variety of options when planning their events, so we set out to create flexible spaces that can take a group from large scale meetings to small group brainstorming, weddings and gala receptions all with different vibes, but all in the same location,” said Roger Fleming, general manager.
To meet those varied needs, the Atlanta Marriott NW incorporated:
- 3 room Executive Suite featuring a Boardroom with seating for 12, a private lounge area and food break area
- Expansive pre-function areas including three event hubs with ample power and data ports and abundant seating suitable for impromptu conversations and collaboration.
- Lush outdoor event lawn
- Two grand outdoor terraces flanking the entrance
Square footage alone doesn’t make a space. Studio Architects of Atlanta incorporated clerestory windows surrounding the perimeter of the Grand Ballroom providing abundant natural light. The ballroom’s 22-foot ceiling uses pin lights to highlight architectural elements and emphasize the spacious feeling. The private grand entrance features a lit staircase and an illuminated three-tiered fountain. A free-flowing art installation highlights the ceilings of two breakout nodes.
Technology enhancements, new linen-less tables and chairs and other fixtures, including a state-of-the-art modular boardroom table, complete the $26 million expansion.
“Two-thirds of meeting planners expect in-person meetings to return to pre-pandemic levels in the next two years,” said Fleming. “They also expect that there will be some virtual component to those events. Whether our guests are coming from the C-suite or the bridal suite, we’re equipped to create memorable in-person experiences, coupled with seamless virtual technology, to meet the new realities of today’s meetings and events market.”
Located at 200 Interstate Parkway, the Atlanta Marriott Northwest at Galleria offers well-appointed accommodations and an A+ location near Truist Park, Cobb Galleria Centre and The Battery’s exciting nightlife, boutique shopping & vibrant culture. The hotel offers 400 guest rooms, high-speed Wi-Fi, an outdoor pool, 24- hour expanded and renovated fitness center and Rocks Restaurant and Bar open daily.
