Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the grand relaunch of The American Hotel in downtown Atlanta. As the first modern hotel in downtown Atlanta, it has been restored to it’s original glory, and they had one fun party to kick off it’s return.
The American Hotel was originally opened in 1962 and played a huge part in the Civil Rights Movement. As one of the first hotels that welcomed all races, anyone and everyone has stayed at this hotel from Elvis to Martin Luther King, Jr. to Hank Aaron to Jimmy Carter. So for the relaunch, we were transported back to the 1960’s. The whole party had a very Pan Am feel. All of the hostesses were dressed as flight attendants, and we were encouraged to get our “Passports” stamped at every prime location at the hotel.
This looks like such a cute hotel! I love staying at unique little places like this, so it’s definitely going on my list! xx

This hotel looks so classic, I love it! I don’t know when we will be traveling to Atlanta, but will definitely consider staying here!
Looks like such a cool hotel! I’d definitely stay here if I were ever in Atlanta.

Okay what?! I’m so close to Atlanta and had no idea about this! That is so cool that it was the first hotel to welcome all races, and that all of those influential people stayed there. I’ll definitely have to go check it out, as I do visit Atlanta quite often! Bummer that I missed the relaunch though. Sounds like something I would enjoy. It seems like you had a great time 🙂

Love everything about this hotel! How unique and fun! And some of the more famed people to stay there — amazing! Love that headboard!
This is such a fun hotel! I love how they’ve put all the stylish elements of the 60s into one place.
