Omni Hotels & Resorts announces the opening of its newest property, Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta. As the official hotel of the Atlanta Braves, the property is located in The Battery Atlanta, the city’s newest mixed-use development and home to SunTrust Park, the Coca-Cola Roxy music venue, shopping, dining and premier office space.

“The Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta is our latest partnership in a series of distinct collaborations with high-profile developments adjacent to iconic attractions,” said Jim Caldwell, chief executive officer of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “The Battery Atlanta has established itself as one the South’s most dynamic destinations, and we are honored to join this rich community alongside our world-class partner, the Atlanta Braves.”

Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta features 264 well-appointed guest rooms including 28 suites. All suites on the 16th floor, including the Presidential, have private terraces. To complement the endless culinary options within The Battery Atlanta, the hotel will be anchored by Achie’s restaurant from acclaimed Chef Hugh Acheson. As a regional epicenter for meetings and social events, there is more than 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including a grand ballroom. Unique amenities also include a pool deck steps from SunTrust Park home plate and a modern retail store featuring fashion and locally-curated art.

“We are thrilled to join an evolving neighborhood and are thankful for the warm welcome we’ve received from the local community and the Atlanta Braves,” said Ramon Reyes, general manager of Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta. “Our new Omni associates look forward to welcoming our first guests.”

Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta subtly captures the essence of the city of Atlanta and the traditions of the Braves. Shades of red, white and blue inspired by Braves colors accompany custom artwork throughout the hotel. Guest room numbers branded into wood paneling (reminiscent of a baseball bat) and framed antique scouting reports are a few of the details that reflect the local color. Sophisticated design pairs with state-of-the-art technology, as the area is powered by an all-fiber network with the highest-capacity serving any mixed-use community or ballpark in the nation.

The hotel debuts Achie’s, its highly anticipated partnership with James Beard Foundation Award-winning Chef Hugh Acheson. This signature restaurant offers Southern-inspired dishes with locally sourced ingredients. Guests can also enjoy 582 Waterside Lounge & Bar for classic American light bites and handcrafted cocktails. Located 582 feet away from home plate, this fifth-floor pool deck provides the most coveted views of The Battery Atlanta. The plaza level features the hotel’s Lobby Bar, which serves local coffee, cocktails and wine in a social atmosphere for guests and locals alike.

Additionally, Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta unveils a distinct retail shop that goes well beyond traditional gift shop selections. South End Trading Company showcases a curated collection of American craft art installations, retro Americana, whimsical baseball items, local art and fashion, a collection of music records and items inspired by the neighboring Coca-Cola Roxy music venue.
