New Hotels in Atlanta & Around Georgia
You snooze, you lose. That’s true when you play Monopoly as a board game or in real life erecting hotels. If you waited to invest almost all your money on a bunch of new hotels in Atlanta, you’re too late. Sorry.
The next time you fly into Atlanta, you’ll have more choices for overnight accommodations before leaving town to go elsewhere.
After all, the primary purpose of Atlanta is to land there in order to go somewhere else, such as the magnificence of North Georgia.
According to our friends with the Atlanta Convention & Visitor Bureau, new hotels in Atlanta and beyond are opening soon. Here’s their glimpse of the hottest hotel developments.
Over the last few years, Georgia’s hotel industry has been on the rise. With 1,845+ lodging properties comprising more than 168,000 hotel rooms, the state’s hotel industry continues to expand with numerous new developments, renovations and expansions under way across the state.
