ALPHARETTA, GA—InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and Epelboim Development Group broke ground on an Even Hotels property here.
Set to open in the third quarter of 2019, the new-build construction hotel continues the expansion of the wellness-focused brand’s footprint in the Southeast and marks the first location in metro Atlanta. This comes on the heels of the brand’s recent openings of two Even Hotels in Sarasota, FL, and Eugene, OR.
This six-story Even Hotel will have 132 rooms, four suites, flexible public workspaces, 750 sq. ft. of meeting space, a business center, on-site restaurant and a 1,200-sq.-ft. athletic studio. The hotel will also incorporate the brand’s signature in-room fitness elements and a balance of health-conscious and indulgent food and beverage options. The property will be managed by IHG.
“We are enthused to work alongside Epelboim Development Group on its second Even Hotels project as we continue to grow the brand in the Southeast. This new hotel will provide an innovative guest experience for wellness-minded business and leisure travelers and demonstrates the confidence our owners have in this growing brand,” said Joel Eisemann, chief development officer, Americas, IHG.
At the Even Hotel Alpharetta, the brand’s signature Cork & Kale café will offer a menu that emphasizes variety, dine-in meals and quicker options like breakfast sandwiches and fresh salads from the grab-and-go marketplace that will be available 24/7.
Epelboim Development Group is also the developer for the Even Hotel Miami – Airport, which is scheduled to open in the fall. The Even Hotel Alpharetta will be the third hotel for the brand to open in the Southeast, and will also join the Even Hotel Sarasota-Lakewood Ranch that opened earlier this year.
