ATLANTA-BASED NORTH Point Hospitality, headed by S. Jay Patel, has finished $7 million in renovation for its Hilton Garden Inn Savannah Historic District in Savannah, Georgia. Modeled on Savannah’s antebellum Central of Georgia Railroad roundhouse and repair shop, the renovation to the 133-room hotel includes new guest rooms, redesigned bathrooms, meeting space, dining and bar area, lobby, pool and fitness center.
The hotel stands in the city’s historic district at Montgomery and Bay streets, near River Street and the City Market. “We have invested more than $52,000 a key into the renovation. It clearly shows our continued commitment to the Hilton Garden Inn brand and the Savannah Historic District market,” said North Point Hospitality Executive Vice President Whip Triplett.
The hotel’s WiFi also has been upgraded and its 24-hour Pavilion Pantry has been expanded. It features more than 1,100 square feet of meeting space.
Last month, North Point broke ground on a $52 million Hampton Inn & Suites in Atlanta. The 186-room, 20-story hotel is expected to open in the first quarter of 2020. It is also constructing the nation’s first tri-branded Marriott hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.
