The Sol Meliá hotel chain will operate its first hotel in the U.S. with the Meliá Atlanta, a 502-room hotel formerly operated by Marriott as the Renaissance Atlanta Hotel Downtown.
As part of its strategy to develop additional properties in the continental U.S., Sol Melia takes over the Renaissance Atlanta hotel operations Oct. 15, and plans a $35-million dollar renovation, to be completed by 2013.
On the edge of Atlanta’s downtown business district, the hotel features more than 30,000 sq. ft. of meeting and conference facilities.
Amenities that will be completed as part of the renovation include the fourth-floor pool deck and fitness center, in addition to eateries.
Recently, Sol Meliá sold one of its midscale brands, TRYP, to Wyndham Hotel Group, as part of a strategic alliance, including a joint development for the new “TRYP by Wyndham” brand within the main markets, including the U.S.
