Biltmore - Atlanta, GA

Manufacturer: Syracuse China
User: Atlanta Biltmore Hotel
Pattern: Grecian
Date: 1946
Notes: A type of "Apartment Hotel" that was popular in the 1920s, the 11-story hotel and adjacent 10-story apartment building opened its doors in 1924 and quickly became part of social Atlanta. The $6,000,000 hotel was financed by: William Candler, Holland Ball Judkins, and John McEntee Bowman, and was designed by the New York firm of Schultze & Weaver. For 30 years, WSB --the South's first radio station -- broadcasted from its studios in the hotel. During the 1960s, there was a series of owners; but they could not bring the hotel back to its former glory and it closed in 1982.

In 1999, the hotel underwent a total renovation, transforming the former hotel into a combination of Class A office space, retail and special event place. With the renovation of the Georgian & Imperial Ballrooms, and now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Biltmore quickly recaptured it's standing as one of the social & business epicenters of Atlanta. Featuring original handcrafted plaster relief ceilings, restored crystal chandeliers, Palladian windows and Tennessee marble floors, the special event space can accommodate groups from 50 to 1500 guests. The Atlanta Biltmore Hotel & Biltmore Apartments are located at 30 5th Street in NE Atlanta. A portion of the building houses condominiums.
