ATLANTA—New Orleans-based hotel owner/operator Expotel Hospitality Services Inc. has assumed management of the newly renamed Sheraton Atlanta Airport, formerly the Sheraton Gateway Atlanta Airport, following the sale of the property to an affiliate of Hotel Capital, LLC in October.
Expotel Hospitality took over management duties from Starwood Hotels & Resorts following the sale transaction. Bill Oliver has been named as the hotel’s general manager; David Gleim will continue as director of sales & marketing.
Danielle Daboval, Expotel Hospitality’s EVP for sales and marketing, said the 395-room property will undergo extensive, yearlong renovations estimated at nearly $10 million beginning in the first quarter of 2015.
“We’re thrilled that every aspect of the hotel will be touched by the renovation, including guestrooms and the 23,000 ft. of meeting and event space,” Daboval said. “The bar will be brought out into the lobby area to bring more energy and a place to gather, and the restaurant will have its own entrance at the front of the building with outside seating.”
Daboval said the hotel’s event space can accommodate up to 500 guests.
“Expotel Hospitality is very excited to join forces with Capital Hotel Management in moving this important property forward,” Daboval stated. “This is a premium hotel property near America’s busiest airport, and we will do our very best to provide busy travelers with the finest services, amenities and comfortable guest accommodations they expect.”
