Hotel Granada Pays Tribute to Its Spanish and Southern Roots

Hotel Granada, a new project from Aparium Hotel Group, is set to open this summer in Midtown Atlanta

The Spanish colonial-inspired property—just over a century old—has been revitalized to now include 120 guestrooms and a charming open-air courtyard restaurant that will serve as an all-day dining and cocktail destination.

At Hotel Granada, guests will be transported from the soaring high-rises of the surrounding neighborhood to an escape that embodies the timeless elegance of a Western European retreat.

Hotel Granada’s architectural refresh

The architectural revitalization of the building was led by architect Ken Gowland of New Orlean-based MetroStudio. A stucco façade, red-tiled roof, refurbished courtyard fountain, and restored Granada mosaic tile inlay at the entrance echo the hotel’s past.

Originally built as the Granada Apartments, an urban retreat for Georgian socialites, Hotel Granada’s design and branding pays homage to the characters that dwelled there decades ago.

Spanish meets Southern at Hotel Granada

Meanwhile, interiors by Austin-based designer Cameron Carr evoke an urban oasis, where Spanish bohemian style meets Southern charm. Calming tones of green, blue, and ochre are paired with natural wood, bespoke furnishings, and layered textiles to blend old-world vintage and Southern aesthetics throughout the courtyard, dining venues, and lobby.

Continuing the bohemian tribute, guestrooms will employ a moody color palette of deep blue, sage, rich brown and red tones, and hints of gold. Velvet-clad furnishings, bold paint choices, and woven fabrics create a warm and inviting atmosphere, evoking a cozy sense of familiarity.

The hotel’s F&B concepts

At the heart of Hotel Granada is a central courtyard, which houses Pom Court bar and restaurant. Here, canopy-forming Crepe Myrtle trees and dramatic café umbrellas frame the pièce de resistance, the historic Granada fountain.

Descending from Pom Court lies a moody cocktail bar waiting below. Set beneath the historic building and slated to open shortly after the hotel launch, the warmly lit space will channel a sense of joie de vivre.
