Hotel Development

Combining feedback from campus partners, meeting planners, conventioneers and hotel consultants, the Georgia World Congress Center Authority is moving forward with plans to build a new headquarter hotel on the northwest corner of the campus. The site was preserved as part of the negotiations for the Mercedes-Benz Stadium project. The hotel will be developed in a joint public/private venture and will be located where the Georgia Dome currently sits, adjacent to Building C of the Georgia World Congress Center.
