January 31, 2013 // Franchising.com // Atlanta, GA – On Thursday, January 17, Hilton Worldwide, Hilton Garden Inn® and Homewood Suites by Hilton™ honored the grand opening of their new dual branded hotel in Atlanta Midtown with a formal ribbon cutting ceremony. Located at 97 10th Street, the 12-story hotel boasts 136 Hilton Garden Inn rooms and 92 Homewood studio suites. The hotel is owned and managed by North Point Hospitality Group, Inc.
To mark the grand opening, North Point Hospitality Group established an endowment of $25,000 to Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business Scholarship Fund, which is home to the Cecil B. Day School of Hospitality Administration. “Georgia State University’s hospitality program has a great reputation in the industry,” said S. Jay Patel, President & CEO of North Point Hospitality Group. “We believe in supporting the communities in which we do business. Establishing this endowment at Georgia State University was a great way to support an industry that has been so good to our Company and my family.”
Situated within a two-mile radius of a number of multi-national businesses such as Coca Cola and Turner Broadcasting, the dual branded hotel will provide the amenities to ensure guests have everything they need whether traveling for business or pleasure.
The hotel splits its lobby between the brands offering two separate check-in desks and lodging/dining areas – each catering to the needs of their respective customers. Communal areas include meeting rooms, business center, pool, and fitness center.
