Meeting Space-Rich St. Regis Slated for Spring 2009 Opening in Atlanta

St. Regis Hotels & Resorts has announced a spring 2009 opening for its latest luxury property, the St. Regis Atlanta Hotel & Residences. The exclusive hotel, which will be located in Atlanta's Buckhead community, will feature 151 rooms and suites, along with over 16,800 square feet of meeting and event space, including eight distinct meeting rooms.

The largest of the hotel's meeting rooms will be the 900-square-foot Astor Ballroom, which will be able to accommodate up to 570 for banquet seating or 790 theater-style. It will feature 19-foot ceilings and will be divisible into four private breakout spaces. Adjoining it will be a 3,000-square-foot pre-function foyer, as well as an outdoor balcony with trees, flickering lights and a lion's head fountain.

Other meeting space at the St. Regis Atlanta will include three meeting rooms for up to 60 seated guests—the Vanderbilt, Rockefeller and Carnegie rooms—as well as the John Jacob Astor Boardroom, for up to 18 guests. The Vanderbilt, Rockefeller and Carnegie rooms will be surrounded by a singular pre-function space and will feature technology such as in-set lighting and remote-controlled built-in screens. The John Jacob Astor Boardroom, meanwhile, will feature floor-to-ceiling windows, a custom-built conference table, leather ergonomic chairs and several high-tech amenities, including a wall-mounted plasma screen television, programmable control panels for lighting, in-room temperature control, a hidden LCD projector, and built-in microphones and speakerphones.

Finally, the St. Regis Atlanta will sport a Grand Terrace for outdoor events. With a waterfall, tropical landscaping and a swimming pool, the Grand Terrace will be able to accommodate up to 500 people for reception-style events and up to 245 people for luncheons and dinners.

In addition to meeting space, the 15-floor St. Regis Atlanta will be home to a 7,800-square-foot spa, two bars, on-site dining options and a fitness center, as well as St. Regis' signature Butler Service.
