The Westin Peachtree Plaza

Atlanta, GA, USA 1976


This major convention hotel consists of 1,100 rooms and 80,000 sf (7,432 sm) of meeting and exhibition facilities. The seven-story podium base of the hotel was `exploded´ around the core that supports the tower to create a dynamic, 90-foot sky-lit lobby that incorporates art and elements of nature. The podium houses space for functions and services such as registration, meeting areas, dining, and recreation.

The tower that ascends from the podium is a glass-clad, 73-story cylindrical guestroom structure, topped with a multi-level revolving restaurant with spectacular views of metropolitan Atlanta. Accessing the restaurant is an exhilarating, scenic event, as patrons rise more than 70 stories in exterior glass elevator cabs.
