1 and Crillon and Baccarat Hotels Oh My!
As if we didn't have enough announcements this week with Edition and XP Hotels Barry Sternlicht, the former Starwood Hotels exec, has announced that the first of planned Baccarat Hotel Chain will debut in Atlanta, Georgia.
Keep in mind Sternlicht is already hard at work on his 1 Hotels brand and the Crillon brand.
Yup, this is about the time when our heads start spinning.
Starwood Stalker Andrew Calvo at Passions of Zealot as usual has all the details.
This Baccarat project will be the first location within the Continental United States and will also include a Baccarat Crystal Boutique - Georgia's first Baccarat location, and America's 12th Baccarat Boutique location. It will contain 100 hotel rooms and 42 condos - a very small project....
The hotel will actually open in the Streets of Buckhead development at Peachtree and East Paces Ferry Roads. It will include at least 2 hotels, residential buildings and luxury retail stores, as well as restaurants. Kinda like a city within a city.
Construction on the development has started but not on the hotel. We're guessing it will be 2010 before you see it.
