With 976 rooms, the new Signia by Hilton Atlanta Georgia World Congress Center is the tallest hotel to open in the city in 40 years. It’s a milestone for the brand, and a signal of the company’s increasing efforts to court business travelers. Part of Signia’s approach is to build hotels in gateway cities, and Atlanta is one of the biggest in the South.

The property’s general manager, Teri Agosta, has worked with Hilton at seven different hotels. She’s witnessed the brand’s evolution and growth during her tenure, and says she jumped at the opportunity to work at the Atlanta hotel when she heard about the opening.

“Hilton has the Conrad and Waldorf Astoria brands,” says Agosta, “but they don’t specialize in meetings. With Signia by Hilton, we’re able to offer the meeting space with the same level of service.”

Indeed, the hotel boasts 140,000 square feet of meeting space, but its location will also appeal to travelers who hope to pack in a bit of leisure time during work travel. Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Centennial Olympic Park, and the College Football Hall of Fame are all within walking distance (or a short car ride away). “There are also eight different food and beverage outlets [on property], including a sports bar,” explains Agosta, adding the property will also have a spa, health club, beauty bar, and twelve wellness rooms later this year. “Our wellness floor will specialize in re-energizing our guests, helping them relax, and just making them feel special.”

Business travelers will also be able to utilize the new Club Signia for an additional fee. “This will allow them to be in an exclusive environment to work, and perhaps have a cocktail or a small bite,” says Agosta. The exclusive guest experience includes up to three meals a day, with ever-changing options curated by a chef personality.

Whether guests are traveling for business or leisure, the property’s rooms also contribute to the allure of the property. Each has floor-to-ceiling windows with fantastic views of the Atlanta skyline.
