Mandarin Oriental Hotel Coming To Midtown, So They Say

Mandarin Oriental, rumored for years to be coming to Midtown Atlanta has apparently finalized an agreement with Atlanta based Tivoli Properties to construct their hotel / condo at 1138 Peachtree Street near the Atlanta Woman’s Club. Mandarin Oriental, a world renowned, 5 star hotel chain would be a welcome addition to the current Atlanta hotel market. (My take on this announcement is more a "believe it when I see it" hence the title) While plans of this would be property were released over a year ago, construction had not begun and talk that the project has been abandoned had increased with the credit crunch. The Mandarin, if it comes to fruition, will be the a coup for the city of Atlanta and midtown especially. Already with the Four Seasons and upcoming Loews hotel, and later the second Intercontinental, the Mandarin will further Atlanta's reputation as a destination, not just domestically, but internationally. Repeat Atlanta!
