Just in time for the full-scale return to in-person meetings and conferences, Dimension Hospitality introduces the second-largest hotel ballroom in Cobb County to the Atlanta Marriott, Northwest at Galleria. The new facility features 25,000 square feet of space, including an 11,000 square foot divisible Grand Ballroom, outdoor terraces and an event lawn that can accommodate up to 1,200 guests.
“Guests and meeting planners told us they wanted a variety of options when planning their events, so we set out to create flexible spaces that can take a group from large-scale meetings to brainstorming sessions. small group, weddings and gala receptions, all with different vibes, but all in the same location,” said Roger Fleming, Managing Director.
To meet these varied needs, the Atlanta Marriott NW has incorporated:
- 3-bedroom executive suite including a conference room that can accommodate 12 people, a private lounge and a meal break area
- Extensive pre-operation areas including three event centers with plenty of power and data ports and plenty of seating suitable for impromptu conversations and collaboration.
- Lush lawn for outdoor events
- Two large outdoor terraces flanking the entrance
Square footage alone does not make a space. Studio Architects of Atlanta incorporated clerestory windows around the perimeter of the grand ballroom, providing abundant natural light. The ballroom’s 22-foot ceiling uses pin lights to highlight architectural elements and accentuate the sense of space. The grand private entrance features a lighted staircase and a three-tiered illuminated fountain. A flowing art installation highlights the ceilings of two branching nodes.
Technological upgrades, new linenless tables and chairs, and other accessories, including a state-of-the-art modular meeting table, complete the $26 million expansion.
“Two-thirds of meeting planners expect in-person meetings to return to pre-pandemic levels within the next two years,” Fleming said. “They also expect there to be a virtual component to these events. Whether our guests are coming from the C Suite or the Bridal Suite, we are equipped to create memorable in-person experiences, coupled with seamless virtual technology, to meet the new realities of today’s meetings and events market.
Located at 200 Interstate Parkway, the Atlanta Marriott Northwest at Galleria offers well-appointed accommodations and an A+ location near Truist Park, the Cobb Galleria Center, and The Battery’s vibrant nightlife, shopping, and vibrant culture.
