Omni Hotels & Resorts and the Atlanta Braves will
develop a hotel adjacent to the ballpark the Major League Baseball team will
open about 15 miles northwest of central Atlanta in 2017. The stadium also is opening in 2017.
The Omni Atlanta Hotel at SunTrust Park, which will break
ground later this year, will be located near the intersection of Interstates 75
and 286 in Cobb County, Georgia. The 16-story hotel, which will be part of a
mixed-use project adjacent to the ballpark, will have 260 rooms and more than
12,000 square feet of meeting space.
Closely held Omni Hotels also operates the 1,070-room Omni
Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center.
