Atlanta loses a Rosewood, gains a Mandarin Oriental

mansion on peachtree to become mandarin oriental atlantaAtlanta is losing its signature Rosewood hotel, the Mansion on Peachtree, and gaining Mandarin Oriental when the hotel changes management in May of this year. The hotel will be rebranded and operated by Mandarin Oriental, but no major overhauls of the hotel are planned. The hotel will now be called The Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta.

The Peachtree area hotel is primed to get new restaurants (Del Friscos, according to the Atlanta SkyRise blog), as well as a transition to a signature Mandarin Oriental Spa. The hotel’s 25 private residences will also be rebranded as Mandarin Oriental Residences.

Forbes Travel Guide reports that Mandarin had planned a hotel in Midtown in 2007, which failed after the economic downturn.
