Atlanta, Georgia— The Emory Conference Center Hotel recently underwent a multimillion-dollar reimagining, which includes redesigned conference space with the latest advancements in technology and audio-visual systems, lecture halls, lobby, common area and bar, according to a press release.
The hotel offers 325 newly renovated and modern guest rooms, including six executive suites, an updated fitness center, swimming pool, and access to hiking and walking trails.
The property will reopen Nov. 10 at an event for Emory University officials, hotel owners, meeting planners and guests, according to a news release. The hotel offers new collaborative spaces and modern amenities designed to invigorate the mind, inspire innovation and reduce stress.
The property is designed to bring the outdoors inside. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow guests to enjoy the outdoors from
the comfort of almost any meeting room in the conference center all year round.
“The property’s renovations are forward-looking and designed to anticipate changing guest expectations,” said Peter Dunn, general manager of the Emory Conference Center Hotel. “When designing the enhancements, we worked closely with our customers who provided invaluable input.”
“I am proud to announce that we have been awarded Convention South magazine’s 2022 Reader’s Choice Award for the sixth time, making us one of 30 winners from the state of Georgia,” Dunn added.
The hotel’s redesign focused on using local Atlanta designers and materials, including furniture and fabrics, to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the renovation’s construction schedule.
Along with aesthetic improvements, the Emory Conference Center hotel has made a significant investment in audiovisual and technology upgrades to meet the demand for hybrid and in-person events. Upgrades include 10K projection systems with wireless presentation capabilities, video conferencing systems with built-in cameras for lecture halls and meeting rooms, improved high-speed internet connection and more.
Along with the conference spaces, other high-tech touches include portals and connectivity in common breakout spaces, and a new public address system in the North and South Towers.
“The redesigned Emory Conference Center Hotel offers organizations a high level of return on investment. Teams are more engaged, ready to perform and reinvigorated after a meeting in an environment designed to reduce stress,” said Guido Brun, Director of Sales and Marketing at Emory Conference Center Hotel. “Guests can access nearby nature trails for hiking, biking, jogging, or just a short stroll to break up the day and recharge for creative and innovative thinking.”
The open lobby of the conference center’s main facility includes Dooley’s Grounds, a specialty coffee, tea and bakery shop that nods to Emory University’s unofficial mascot, known for canceling lectures. courses and other mischievous behavior each spring. The cafe serves roasted Dancing Goats coffee.
