Concord debuts The Westin Atlanta Gwinnett

Hotel management and development company Concord Hospitality has opened The Westin Atlanta Gwinnett located in the Gas South District, a multipurpose campus known for hosting a diverse range of events.

Developed in partnership with Gwinnett Convention and Visitors Bureau, the 348-room hotel is a full-service meetings and events facility. Located in the metro Atlanta area, the new hotel has more than 27,000 sq. ft. of space with 16 event facilities and accommodations including a presidential suite featuring a private terrace and two hospitality suites with outdoor terraces, as well as four executive level and six standard suites. All guestrooms offer wellness-enhancing amenities like the Westin Heavenly Bath, and the hotel will be among the first in America to offer the new and enhanced second-generation Westin Heavenly Beds.

“Concord Hospitality recognized the Gas South District as an ideal market for our newest hotel because of its endless synergies and our opportunity to grow within Gwinnett County, the second-most populous county in Georgia,” said Mark Castriota, GM, The Westin Atlanta Gwinnett. “Opening our doors in the heart of this 118-acre campus is a major draw with unmatched convenience for our guests to enjoy an exceptional array of nearby sports, entertainment, shopping and dining experiences. We look forward to making it a must-visit destination for travelers and residents of Georgia and the Southeast.”

Brian Cornell, chief information officer, Concord Hospitality, added, “This state-of-art convention center hotel will offer an unparalleled experience for event planners with its cutting-edge technology and reliability. We spared no expense in equipping the center with features such as a lightning-fast fiber network and enhanced continuity measures to prevent interruptions to operations. It’s truly in a class of its own within this region.”

Operated by the Gwinnett Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Gas South District offers an array of events and is close to  attractions such as the World of Coca-Cola, Georgia Aquarium, Stone Mountain Park, The Carter Center, Truist Park and Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

“The opening of the Westin Atlanta Gwinnett hotel provides a unique opportunity for the Gas South District Campus, and for the entire metro Atlanta area,” said Stan Hall, CEO, Gas South District. “Having a true headquarters hotel attached to the Gas South District Convention Center, located intentionally in the heart of our campus, positions us as a very strong competitor for large-scale regional and national conventions, corporate meetings and other large-scale attended events. The aesthetic seamlessness and walkability, as well as first-class dining and amenities options of the two buildings, will provide positive and memorable experiences for all our guests. We are excited about this relationship with The Westin and are confident that their presence will be a positive game changer for how we both do business relative to the hospitality and business community.”
