ATHENS, GA—Charlestowne Hotels has assumed management of Foundry Park Inn & Spa here. 

Located near downtown Athens and the University of Georgia, the 118-room inn is situated among historic buildings dating back to the 1830s.

The Foundry Park Inn offers a restaurant and entertainment venue, a full-service spa and four ballrooms.

Plans are under way to remodel guestrooms and public spaces mid-year to enhance the overall guest experience and to provide a more modern aesthetic for the property, according to the company.

Michael Tall, president/COO of Charlestowne Hotels, stated, “The Inn provides a unique guest experience compared to the many branded hotels in the market, and with the projected capital improvements and a strong focus on service we anticipate nothing less than positive results in the years ahead."

The Inn joins 24 independent properties of 30 hotels managed by Charlestowne and is the second property in Georgia to be included in the firm’s portfolio.
