ATLANTA, Ga. – The Kimpton Sylvan Hotel in Atlanta opened its doors to guests on Wednesday, February 10.

Tucked away in the elegant neighborhood of Buckhead, The Kimpton Sylvan Hotel is a 1950s-era adaptive reuse boutique hotel. It includes 217 guest rooms, a living room lobby, a private pool, and more than 4,000 square feet of meetings and events space.

Inspired by Atlanta’s nickname of ‘The City in a Forest’ and the arboreal abundance in the hotel’s own backyard, the name Sylvan is derived from the Latin word silva, meaning forest. Themes of trees, greenery, and nature resonate throughout the hotel, from the guest rooms to the lobby and beyond.

The guest rooms at The Sylvan Hotel are designed with simple lines, intriguing textures, and contemporary comforts such as apothecary bath potions.

The hotel’s past life as a luxury community has laid the groundwork for an abundance of guest amenities, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, cruiser bikes, special comforts for pets, a hosted evening social hour, morning coffee and tea service, in-room yoga mats, same-day dry cleaning and laundry, premium Bluetooth speakers, and daily newspapers delivered electronically.

For guests interested in extra space and flair, the Magnolia Hospitality Suite features access to privacy and poolside living. Guests may host gatherings of up to 50 friends amid a living room of stylish furnishings and modern technology, with a dining table for 10. A spacious bathroom and queen-size Murphy bed round out the conveniences. For open-air festivities, guests may step out onto the adjoining poolside patio.

The 1,900-square-foot Camellia Ballroom accommodates groups of up to 225 reception-style or 125 banquet-style, while two smaller meeting rooms—the Dogwood, with a capacity of 14, people, and the Gingko, which can hold 25 to 70—are ideal for board meetings, private dinners, receptions, or small group meetings.
