FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. — Trilith Development, in partnership with Mainsail Lodging & Development and Development Ventures Group, Inc. announced ground has been broken on an innovative boutique hotel that will serve as a flagship destination in Trilith. The hotel will be located in the heart of the Town at Trilith, an unparalleled 235-acre, internationally inspired town in Fayetteville, Georgia located adjacent to Trilith Studios.
Construction on the community’s new showpiece is underway with an anticipated opening date of fall 2023. A comprehensive brand reveal for the boutique hotel will be announced this summer.
“This unique hotel will serve as the quintessential hub for professional creatives, artists, storytellers and makers to enjoy a remarkable overnight experience,” said Rob Parker, president of the Town at Trilith. “In partnership with world-class hospitality professionals, we are committed to deliver a hotel that will surprise and delight both business and pleasure travelers.”
The hotel will join Marriott’s Tribute Portfolio, a family of independent boutique hotels that offer an unmatched sense of character and create spaces to bring people together for unique experiences. The project included Hodges Ward Elliott who served as an advisor.
“The Town of Trilith has created a perfect setting for an experiential, lifestyle hotel,” said Joe Collier, president of Mainsail Lodging & Development. “Our signature restaurant, rooftop bar, culinary workspace and social public spaces will uniquely connect us to residents in the community, as well as to overnight guests.”
The hotel will include 193 guest rooms and suites featuring deluxe bedding, artisan pantries and well-lit workspaces underscored with a bold, vibrant and refined presentation. The property will also include 36 apartment-style units designed to meet the needs of a new category of professional traveler seeking flexibility, freedom and exclusivity. The extended stay accommodations include a range from studios to two-bedroom suites, and all will include full-sized refrigerators and separate living areas. Select units will also feature outdoor patios.
The leading-edge hotel will feature unique amenities highlighting the creativity, spontaneity and endless opportunities incorporated into all aspects of Trilith.
“We are very excited to be part of the award-winning Town of Trilith, the thoughtfulness, creativity and commitment to the vision aligns perfectly with our approach to the opportunity and we look forward to delivering this exciting component of the community,” commented Thom Cunningham, chief operating officer of DEVEN. “This hotel will be an extension of the town, and as such will draw interest from not only the greater Atlanta area, but nationally as well.”
In addition to its exclusive design characteristics, the boutique hotel will showcase a street-level signature restaurant and dramatic bar setting which afford views of the terrace and events lawn. A fifth-floor, rooftop bar will allow guests to gather, sit and sip with views to get a unique perspective on the one-of-a-kind development. A theatre kitchen including Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances will allow local chefs, filmmakers, artisans and culinary creators to immerse themselves in a story of their own making through an array of events. In addition to culinary programs like cocktail/cooking classes, wine tastings and cheesemaking, the theatre is also slated to host art and creative events.
The hotel will include 9,000-square-foot indoor and outdoor meeting spaces to offer intimate areas for collaboration and larger venues for special events, highlighted by an elegant ballroom, rooftop conference room and outdoor events lawn. These spaces will feature distinctive details that emphasize the hotel’s connection to the film and creative industries.
Other featured amenities include a heated outdoor pool, fitness center, self and valet parking and convenient access to EV charging stations.
