Located on the campus of the Infinite Energy Center near Duluth, Ga., the 11-story, 348-room Westin Atlanta Gwinnett Hotel will feature nearly 34,500 square feet of ballroom, meeting and pre-function space, three meal restaurants, lobby and rooftop bars, a coffee shop, an indoor pool, a fitness center and an outdoor fire pit, among other amenities. Of note, plans for the rooftop bar include three separate serving locations, making it an ideal venue to accommodate hundreds of guests for private events or large receptions. The property will also offer two hospitality suites with outdoor terraces, one presidential suite with a private terrace, four executive suites and six standard suites.
The Westin Atlanta Gwinnett Hotel will help service events at the newly expanded convention center.

Guests can also experience VIP access to the Infinite Energy Center for events.
“As Concord’s sixth property in the Atlanta area, we are extremely proud to be working alongside Gwinnett County officials and tourism representatives to bring the new Westin Atlanta Gwinnett Hotel to Gwinnett,” said Mark Laport, President, and CEO of Concord Hospitality. “It is through collaborations with partners like these that we are able to continue expanding our footprint in the Atlanta market. We look forward to welcoming guests to Gwinnett County and allowing them to explore and experience all the area has to offer in the coming years.”
