Looks like the Mandarin Oriental Hotel is indeed taking over the Mansion on Peachtree. According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, the company has inked the deal and is set to transition into the hotel starting this coming April. (I broke the story last week on my blog.) Sorry Midtown! It is definitely easier for the brand to enter the market utilizing an existing high-end building, rather than starting from scratch. The Mansion is a beautiful property as-is, but I’m sure the folks at Mandarin are going to come in and make it even more upscale and unique. I’m looking forward to the changes!
