Earlier this month, we compiled a photo essay on downtown’s new Margaritaville and Club Wyndham resort tower and asked readers how they think it turned out, in terms of exterior architecture and stance at the edge of Centennial Olympic Park. Now it’s time to head inside.
Reps with the dual-branded resort have provided Urbanize Atlanta with fresh interior renderings illustrating just how different designs will be for suites under the two brands.
The Jimmy Buffett-inspired options, not surprisingly, lean more Key West and Cheeseburger in Paradise, while the Club Wyndham suites will be decidedly more contemporary and restrained.
The 22-story building was designed by Columbia, South Carolina-based Garvin Design Group to “literally [mirror] the energy of the city,” with its glass façade aimed at landmarks such as CNN Center and Georgia Aquarium. At the same time, it’s meant to inspire the feeling of being on vacation—helped by the 19th-floor owners’ amenity level with outdoor yoga, a fitness center, stainless steel pool, vegetated green wall, and pool bar. Expect a two-story Margaritaville restaurant at the base.
Lauren Bowes, a Wyndham Destinations spokesperson, says a grand opening for the 200-suite building is being targeted for summer 2022.
The resort will offer a range of room sizes, from studios to three-bedroom presidential suites, said Bowes. We asked for details on options for owning, renting, or simply staying at the property—and estimated prices for doing so—and were told more information will be released closer to next summer’s opening.
On one hand, the Margaritaville Vacation Club suites are designed to “bring to life the laid-back escapism of Margaritaville” by way of beachy décor, light woods, and the Frozen Concoction Maker® that will come standard in either kitchenettes or fully equipped kitchens.
The Club Wyndham suites, meanwhile, are designed to be “purely modern, reflecting the city’s future-thinking approach as a modern city hub,” according to marketing materials. “A sophisticated palette blends urban modern materials with warm woods, while emphasizing floor to ceiling glass with spectacular city views.”
