Yotel has announced plans for a hybrid short and extended-stay property within the redeveloped Underground district in Atlanta.

Scheduled to open in the autumn of 2022, the hotel will offer 234 cabins for short stays, and 117 “Pads” for longer stays under the group’s recently launched Yotelpad brand.

The property will feature a rooftop pool and terrace, and will be housed within the regenerated Underground development in the Five Points downtown district of Atlanta.

Other facilities will include the group’s signature Komyuniti communal space, with a café and restaurant on the ground floor.

Underground first opened as a shopping and entertainment district in 1969, and is being redeveloped to include 400,000 square feet of retail, restaurant, entertainment, event space, office, residential and student housing space.

The development is located above the city’s Five Points station, with access to the Atlanta’s MARTA rail network.

Commenting on the news Hubert Viriot, CEO of Yotel said:

“The Yotel and Yotelpad concepts have been incredibly well received across the globe. In the US alone we currently operate four Yotel properties and have another seven under development including four Yotelpad properties.

“We are extremely excited to be part of this project, focused on the revitalisation of Atlanta’s downtown. Atlanta is an exciting, bustling city, with one of the largest concentrations of Fortune 500 companies in the US and the busiest airport in the world.

“Not only is it a key business hub, but also a great city to combine work with play due to its rich cultural history and famous landmarks. This is an excellent opportunity for us to put our signature modern spin on Atlanta’s southern hospitality.”

The Yotel brand launched in 2007 at Gatwick airport, and there are currently 30 properties either operating or under development, with plans to increase this to 60 by 2023.

The group’s first Yotelpad is set to open in Switzerland next year, and Yotelair properties recently opened at Istanbul and Singapore Changi’s airports.
