More details have been released about international hotel chain YOTEL’s plan to build a 351-room property as part of the redevelopment of Underground Atlanta.
The hotel, which will be located just off Peachtree Street, is part of WRS, Inc.’s four-block redevelopment of Underground.
The new hotel will feature 234 “cabins” designed for short stays (YOTEL) and 117 “PADs” for longer stays (YOTELPAD). Construction of the hotel is set to begin in summer 2020, with an anticipated opening date of Autumn 2022.
The “smart hotel” will feature self-check-in kiosks, adjustable SmartBeds, outdoor pool and terrace, rooftop bar, “GRAB+GO” cafe on the ground floor and KOMYUNITI, a combination restaurant and co-working space.
“We’re excited to have found the right hotel partner that is unique to Atlanta. YOTEL values a forward-thinking environment and designs their hotels with independent and tech-savvy travelers in mind. It’s perfect for Underground’s location in the heart of Downtown and close proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport,” said T. Scott Smith, President and CEO of WRS, Inc., in a media statement.
