 The Artmore Hotel: A New Incarnation of the Former
 Granada Suites Hotel in Midtown Atlanta

ATLANTA, April 24, 2009 - The Artmore Hotel is a beautiful new incarnation of the former Granada Suites Hotel in Midtown Atlanta. This iconic historic landmark has been painstakingly renovated by Urbana Realty Advisors and Jamestown & Associates, both of Atlanta, with great care taken to preserve the hotel's charming design. As Atlanta's newest independent boutique hotel, The Artmore ( is providing exemplary customer service at an affordable price. It's managed by Boutique Hospitality Management (BHM).

Because the hotel is strategically located at 1302 West Peachtree Street in the heart of Midtown's business and arts district, elements of art and culture are found throughout the property.

"The Artmore is not a cookie-cutter chain hotel," said Allan Gutierrez, CEO of Urbana Realty Advisors. "It's very much like a European boutique hotel with its intriguing interior design, variety of accommodations, personal service and warm, friendly atmosphere."

The hotel was built as a luxury apartment building in 1924, with an exterior design reminiscent of Spanish Mediterranean esthetics. It features queen and king-sized guest rooms, executive king suites and extended stay suites, along with a lobby bar, corporate meeting rooms, fitness center and courtyard.

Guests will enjoy luxurious custom bedding, LCD TVs, iPod docking stations, complimentary high speed internet access, work stations with enhanced lighting, coffee makers and refurbished bathrooms. Suites include refrigerators, microwaves, wet bars and some have Jacuzzi tubs. Extended stay suites include fully-appointed kitchens.

The hotel's lobby has been transformed into a high-tech, high-touch gathering space of wood, stone and metal. Indoor seating is available in the lounge and at the stylishly designed winding bar, while outdoor seating is offered in the interior courtyard, which has been re-landscaped into a contemporary gathering spot.

"Because The Artmore is such an eclectic building, we have played up its charm throughout the public spaces," said Keith Space, of BHM. "We have maintained as many of the fine architectural features as possible like archways, columns, porticoes and balustrades. The Artmore is itself a work of art, which is why it's such a perfect fit for Atlanta's arts district," he said.

The Artmore offers two meeting rooms for corporate events. Because the hotel is walking distance from Atlanta's public transportation system, MARTA, it is ideal for business meetings. Visit or call 404-876-6100.
