Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Hilton’s iconic luxury hotel brand, announced today the opening of Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead, the first for the brand in Atlanta.

The iconic building, formerly known as the Mandarin Oriental Atlanta, was designed by American Architect Robert A.M. Stern and sits 42 stories above the Atlanta skyline. Today, Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead offers extensive meeting and event space, exquisite dining options and a 15,000-square-foot spa.

Whether planning a wedding or intimate board meeting, Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead offers a variety of event spaces that are the perfect backdrop for any occasion, from a ballroom to boardrooms to a private garden space. Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead features 127 spacious rooms and 10 suites. While the property will be reimagined with signature brand touches, the current accommodations features residential-inspired décor that creates a feeling of contemporary elegance meets understated luxury.

“The highly sought-after Buckhead neighborhood, home to fantastic restaurants and designer boutiques, is the perfect location for our iconic Waldorf Astoria brand,” said Dino Michael, global brand head, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts. “We are incredibly excited to debut the brand in Atlanta and welcome this beautiful property to our portfolio.”

Point Lookout Resort & Conference Center, located in Northport, Maine, will be managed by Olympia Hotel Management and owned by Deep Creek Grazing Association. Based in Portland, Olympia Hotel Management will be adding the 387-acre property overlooking Penobscot Bay to its list of award-winning hotels that it currently manages.

 

In the fall of 2018, Florida International University’s Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management partnered with Fontainebleau Miami Beach to launch their Program On Demand, an innovative program created to offer university students a glimpse into working in the meetings and events industry.
