CHICAGO (December 15, 2021) – Hyatt Hotels Corporation [NYSE: H] announced today the opening of Thompson Buckhead. The lifestyle property introduces Atlanta to its refined edge in hospitality and brings to market a timeless space where culture is celebrated, and guests are immersed in thoughtfully curated experiences in the center of one of the city’s most sought-after destinations.
The 10-story hotel, designed by the architects of Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, built under general contractors Brasfield and Gorrie, and brought to life by Studio 11 Design, exudes classic Southern charm and a design that perfectly melds romanticism with mid-century minimalism. Understated luxury mirrors the property’s envied location, while its cutting-edge architecture speaks to the city as a hub for innovation.
Located in the center of the Buckhead Village neighborhood, a contemporary exterior inspires the design elements within. Greenery throughout the hotel provides natural warmth and a sense of connection to the outdoors, while a subtle blend of traditional patterns and texture with clean modern forms strikes a balance between modernity and the classic beauty of the neighborhood.
Its 201 guestrooms and suites feature chevron-patterned wood floors, area rugs, and marble mosaics. Natural hues, complemented by rich jewel tone accents and local art, provide a serene and sophisticated environment with intimate seating and design components to be discovered. Impressive floor to ceiling windows in every room offer sweeping skyline views, and thoughtful standards include custom 400-thread count Sferra linens, Sealy Tempur-Pedic mattresses, D.S. & Durga bath products, oversized Thompson Hotels branded signature robes and a locally curated minibar.
Junior Suites, King Suites and Parlor Suites range from 417 to 620-square feet and the signature Thompson Suite, an impressive 1,048-square-foot retreat, includes a full wet-bar, glass enclosed dining room and a master bathroom featuring a spa-inspired wet room with steam shower and soaking tub.
Guests of the hotel’s suites and ninth floor rooms will be invited to experience Tesserae, the hotel’s private membership rooftop club, when it debuts early next year. Tesserae will serve as an invite-only social club designed to highlight the diversity of Atlanta and create a space for its greatest thought-leaders and creators to network and socialize at the meticulously designed indoor-outdoor rooftop. The club is boldly conceptualized through the lens of inspiring members not by gathering a group of like-minded individuals, but rather by a diverse collection of individuals that might foster change and innovation. With exclusive F&B amenities and access to privately curated events, this sophisticated escape will bring together an unmatched community of individuals.
A rooftop pool with private cabanas perfect for soaking in the sunshine with cocktails and friends, accompanied by unobstructed skyline views, is open to all hotel guests and rounds out the unparalleled tenth floor experience.
On the ground level, dining leaves nothing to be desired at Dirty Rascal – the 140-seat signature restaurant by James Beard Foundation semifinalist chef Todd Ginsberg and the Rye Restaurants team. Dirty Rascal harkens back to old-school Italian-American restaurants, institutions you might find in New York or off-the-strip Las Vegas. Featuring a large central bar, intimate alcoves, a wall of oversized round leather booths, and a private dining area, this is a restaurant grand enough for special occasions, but comfortable enough for people to make it their regular spot. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the restaurant is under the daily leadership of chef Joshua Hopkins, executive chef of Thompson Buckhead.
At 4,187 square feet, Thompson Buckhead’s ballroom plays host to the hottest tickets in town, drawing social events, weddings, receptions, fundraisers and more to its unique space, complete with a retractable glass wall that opens to an outdoor terrace with fireplace. Additional pre-function areas, executive boardroom and divisible meeting space accommodates sophisticated groups of all sizes.
The hotel is owned by Atlanta-based Regent Partners and The Loudermilk Companies. For more information or to book a stay at Thompson Buckhead, please visit www.thompsonbuckhead.com.
