EVEN Hotels opened the brand’s 13th property last month, with EVEN Hotel Alpharetta – Avalon Area debuting in the Atlanta metro. The property is the first EVEN-branded hotel in Georgia, and brings a new fitness- and wellness-focused hospitality option to the area.
The property offers more than 130 guestrooms, including six suites. Each guestroom provides stand-up desks, in-room fitness equipment, mood lighting, spa showers and premium bedding. Each guestroom also features IHG Studio, a new entertainment solution offering easy streaming from guest devices to the in-room television.
On-site dining is provided by Cork & Kale, offering fast casual breakfast and dinner, with health-conscious, yet still indulgent, menu items. A 24-7 marketplace offers freshly prepared foods, snacks and beverages, while a full-service bar provides cocktails with fresh ingredients.
“Our guests expect hotels to reflect their lifestyle choices, and the EVEN Hotels brand does just that from the moment guests walk through our doors. Our Alpharetta location marks the 13th to market, with 26 more in the pipeline globally. We are excited to bring this hotel to metro Atlanta and the continued growth for the brand,” said Raul Ortiz, vice president, global, EVEN Hotels.
