Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the grand relaunch of The American Hotel in downtown Atlanta. As the first modern hotel in downtown Atlanta, it has been restored to it’s original glory, and they had one fun party to kick off it’s return.
The American Hotel was originally opened in 1962 and played a huge part in the Civil Rights Movement. As one of the first hotels that welcomed all races, anyone and everyone has stayed at this hotel from Elvis to Martin Luther King, Jr. to Hank Aaron to Jimmy Carter. So for the relaunch, we were transported back to the 1960’s. The whole party had a very Pan Am feel. All of the hostesses were dressed as flight attendants, and we were encouraged to get our “Passports” stamped at every prime location at the hotel.
