Marriott’s dual branded AC/Moxy Hotel is coming to Atlanta
STORY: Claire Ruhlin
Marriott’s AC and Moxy hotel concepts are coming together in Midtown, with both opening under one roof this year in a partnership between Marriott and Atlanta developer Noble Investment Group. Atlanta’s Cooper Carry serves as the architect. The $70 million, dual branded hotel will span five stories and be located between 13th and 14th streets, encompassing a total area of 266,000 square feet, including four levels of parking.
The AC Hotel concept, which will offer 133 rooms and boasts standalone locations in Buckhead and Downtown, takes inspiration from Europe and features sophisticated design elements and designated work spaces. A new concept for the Atlanta market, the Moxy Hotel is geared toward millennial travelers with affordable pricing and high-tech amenities. The hotel’s 155 tech-enabled rooms will offer mobile check-in, keyless entry, motion-sensor lighting, USB outlets and free WiFi, so you can Instagram as much as you’d like.
While the hotels will have separate elevators and entrances—AC Hotel’s on 14th Street and Moxy’s on 13th Street—they’ll share a rooftop amenity floor with a fitness center, business center, pool, bar and fire pits.
The project also includes Arts Walk, a pedestrian path that connects 14th Street and Crescent Avenue.
The connector will eventually stretch from the Woodruff Arts Center to the 10th Street MARTA station.
