Vision Hospitality Group’s 156-room upscale AC Hotel Atlanta Perimeter Center in Atlanta is near Perimeter Center Mall.

VISION HOSPITALITY GROUP has broken ground on the upscale AC Hotel Atlanta Perimeter Center in Atlanta. The 156-room hotel is expected to open in 2021.

Chattanooga, Tennessee-based Vision Hospitality is led by Mitch Patel, president and CEO.

AC Hotel Atlanta Perimeter Center will feature the first rooftop bar in Atlanta’s Perimeter Center area. The hotel’s library will provide novels for guests and the AC Lounge will be available for work and social gatherings. The hotel also will display a curated collection of art.

Nearby are Perimeter Center Mall and offices for State Farm, UPS, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper and Mercedes Benz USA.

Vision Hospitality has 10 hotels in the Atlanta metro area, including the recently refinanced 115-room Marriott Courtyard Duluth Sugarloaf in Duluth, Georgia, and the SpringHill Suites Downtown Atlanta.

“The concept behind the AC Hotel Atlanta Perimeter Center is simple but powerful – edit away the unnecessary to allow guests to focus on what is most important to them,” Patel said. “I am especially excited to introduce the rooftop bar, which will feature expansive views of Perimeter Center, Buckhead and Midtown.”

Along with the rooftop bar, the hotel will have a restaurant on the first floor. Other amenities include a fitness center and market.

Vision Hospitality also operates or is developing other upscale brands, such as the Aloft by Marriott Chattanooga/Hamilton Place in Chattanooga and Tru by Hilton hotels in Chattanooga and McDonough, Georgia, south of Atlanta. Patel discussed the latter brand in a Q&A for the opening of Tru’s 100th property in November.
