ATLANTA—Hilton announced the opening of the 976-room Signia by Hilton Atlanta, marking the first new build and Georgia hotel for the Signia by Hilton brand. Inclusive of the property’s debut, Atlanta represents Hilton’s largest market globally by number of hotels with a portfolio of 136 hotels across 13 brands. In Atlanta, Hilton also has a pipeline of more than 40 hotels in various stages of design and construction.

Signia by Hilton Atlanta is owned by Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA) and forms part of the Authority’s Championship Campus, which also includes Georgia World Congress Center, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and Centennial Olympic Park. Built on the repurposed foundation of the Georgia Dome, the hotel has eight food and beverage experiences; a spa, beauty bar, rooftop pool, and fitness center; more than 100,000 square feet of meeting space; a grand outdoor event deck and lawn; and Club Signia.

“Signia by Hilton offers the world’s best meetings and events, a vibrant atmosphere, exceptional amenities, and personalized service catered to the needs of today’s global traveler,” said Chris Nassetta, president and CEO, Hilton. “We are excited to introduce this brand to our extensive portfolio in Atlanta, a dynamic destination that continues to play an important role in Hilton’s growth, and are proud of the positive impact this hotel will have on the community through local job creation partnerships and incremental convention and leisure business.”

“Signia by Hilton Atlanta complements our vision for a compact and connected campus featuring a package of facilities unrivaled in any city in the United States,” said Frank Poe, executive director of Georgia World Congress Center Authority. “More importantly, it is a cornerstone of a strategy centered on aligning GWCCA with the evolving needs of its customers while putting Atlanta on the shortlist for the most prestigious live events the industry has to offer.”


“The addition of Signia by Hilton to the GWCCA’s portfolio of venues further strengthens its status as one of the premier destinations in the world for conventions, sports events, and entertainment,” said Governor Brian Kemp. “As Georgia prepares to welcome iconic events and continues experiencing record-breaking economic growth in the years ahead, this facility is well-positioned to remain a key economic driver for our state. Tourism and the hospitality industry remain some of the largest industries in Georgia, and today’s announcement is another reminder of the Peach State’s success in these key areas.”

Signia by Hilton Atlanta was developed by Boston-based Drew Company, with Gensler as the architect and interior designer, and a joint venture between Skanska and SG Contracting as the general contractor. As the tallest building on the west side of Atlanta, the 42-story, 1.25 million square foot property has wall-to-wall glass and a curated art collection.

Upon entering Signia by Hilton Atlanta, guests can expect a sense of arrival and service from check-in to check-out. Travelers are welcomed into an open-concept lobby.

All guestrooms at Signia by Hilton Atlanta offer floor-to-ceiling windows with a combination of earth-toned fabrics, wood and rattan textures, and brass finishes.
