Driftwood to manage Wylie Hotel

Wylie Hotel, a historic boutique hotel located in the Historic Old Fourth Ward neighborhood in Atlanta, is now operated by Driftwood Hospitality Management.

The hotel will join more than 80 other properties that Driftwood manages across the U.S. Additionally, the boutique hotel will transition to a Tapestry Collection by Hilton.

“We’re ecstatic to be welcoming this vibrant and timeless hotel to our growing portfolio,” said Richard Slutter, regional director, operations-lifestyle, Driftwood Hospitality Management. “This specific location in Atlanta is booming, and we’re pleased we are adding this area into our collection of exceptional hotels.”

The hotel was originally built in 1929 as Garner Wallace Hotel. Reopening in 2021 as Wylie Hotel, it now features 111 rooms, an outdoor terrace, sunroom and restaurant, paying homage to the history of the building and the community. The interior has been reimagined by designers Kendal Rogers and Maria Garza Gossett of Pixel Design Collaborative.

“Since all of these new buildings are going up and changing what it means to be in the Old Fourth Ward, we feel it’s part of our job to connect with the neighborhood and the locals to create authentic experiences,” said Liz Young, director, sales, Wylie Hotel. “We’re doing just that. Wylie Hotel is thoughtful, quaint and cute. All of the little touches really set it apart. There are little touches that make it. The rooms are very residential, with all the creature comforts of home.”
