Downtown Atlanta's Ellis Hotel Recognized as a Historic Hotel of America

March 22, 2023

The Ellis Hotel in downtown Atlanta, built in 1913, has been inducted into Historic Hotels of America®, the official program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The Ellis Hotel, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel by Marriott, is one of more than 300 hotels and resorts throughout the country recognized by Historic Hotels of America for preserving and maintaining its historic integrity, architecture, and ambiance.

To be selected for membership in Historic Hotels of America, a hotel must be at least 50 years old; has been designated by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior as a National Historic Landmark or listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places; and has been recognized as having historic significance.

Ellis Hotel is rich in history and architectural integrity. The hotel debuted at a time when Atlanta was rapidly emerging as one of the most prosperous metropolises in the United States, shortly before the outbreak of World War I. More recently in 2006, the Ellis Hotel Atlanta, underwent an extensive, year-long renovation that saw it reborn as a stunning boutique destination. The restoration brilliantly updated the floorplan to reflect a more contemporary atmosphere, while also preserving its rich architectural heritage.

Scot Gladstone, General Manager of the Ellis Hotel said, “We are extremely excited to officially become a member of Historic Hotels of America, honoring the historic importance of the Ellis Hotel in Downtown Atlanta’s Peachtree District.”
