Atlanta’s Glenn Hotel joins Marriott’s Autograph collection

Marriott’s latest addition to its boutique brand is something of a Southern Belle. The Glenn hotel is now part of the Autograph Collection, a group of independent hotels representing upscale and luxury properties with distinctive personalities.

Glenn is known for its southern hospitality and friendly ways. The hotel’s motto, “stay with a friend,” comes from the hotel’s promise that staying with Glenn is as comfortable as being a house-guest at the home of a good friend.

Originally opened as office space in 1923, the building became a hotel in 2006. Guests walk into a cozy living room (instead of a formal lobby) and are greeted by a hotel host with a welcome drink (we’re assuming it’s some kind of julep) and hosts remain on-call until guests check out. Guests can dine at the hotel’s restaurant or hang out on the rooftop bar, which offers great views of downtown Atlanta.

According to a release from the hotel, Glenn hotel began accepting reservations as a Marriott property on May 17 and joined the Autograph Collection on June 10. Guests staying at Glenn will be a part of the Marriott Rewards program, making them eligible to earn and redeem points at over 3,000 Marriott hotels worldwide.

Thinking about staying at the hotel? If you’re name is “Glenn” or “Glenda” and book a stay through June 17, you’ll get a free cocktail and be entered to win a night in the penthouse. All other guests can book rooms starting at $159 per night. .
