    Marriott International, Inc. celebrated the opening of the 403-room Atlanta Airport Marriott Gateway earlier this month, a newly constructed hotel adjacent to the Georgia International Convention Center and connected to Atlanta’s Hartsfield -Jackson International Airport. Contemporary in feel and filled with natural light and vibrant colors, the hotel’s facilities for business and relaxation represent the latest design and innovation of Marriott Hotels & Resorts. The Atlanta Airport Marriott Gateway is on track to earn LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification silver from the U.S. Green Building Council. The hotel will be operated under a management agreement with Grove Street Partners. (PHOTO: R to L – Erika Alexander, Area VP Marriott; Robert Woolridge, GM Atlanta Airport Marriott Gateway; James M.
