Great Spaces: The Hilton Atlanta



One of Fourteen included in Our Great Spaces for Your Corporate & Holiday Events

The Hilton Atlanta
5993 Peachtree Industrial Blvd
Norcross 30092

As I approached this impressive neighborhood hotel, I could see why it is known as “The Castle on the Hill.” Driving up Peachtree Industrial you can see it majestically perched upon the hill, its roofline jetting up into the sky – an easy place for guests to find.

Director of Sales and Marketing Jessica Coane emerged from the sophisticated lobby of the newly-renovated, 4-star hotel in response to my query about booking a holiday party there.

Celebrate the Season at the Castle on the Hill

There are 14 meeting or event spaces to choose from here. From a small group of 10 people in a meeting room, to big ballrooms, 500-600 at a seated dinner with a dancefloor in the Grand Ballroom, or 1000 for a standing reception, the Hilton has your party needs covered no matter what they may be.

A pre-set auditorium is available for up to 120 attendees. A variety of boardrooms are an option if you are looking to facilitate board meetings.

How About a Holiday Party at The Hilton Atlanta?

Having undergone years of renovations in the rooms, event spaces, lobby, fitness center and pool area, the conveniently located Hilton Atlanta Northeast might be able to check more than one box for us this holiday season!

Are you maxed out at home with the arrival of out-of-town guests? This hotel can make your guests feel at home, providing them with plenty of amenities and a distinct style, in addition to having the perfect event space to meet your holiday party needs, whether you’re planning a corporate event or a family reunion.

Coane offered, “We have excellent food quality scores from guest and meeting surveys. There is a great tenure of associates here: chef, catering service, banquet staff, they know the property well and give great service. There is a unique look to the building, it’s great for pictures. The hallway leading to the restaurant is a popular shot for brides. Complimentary parking, which hotels in town do not offer.”

The Hilton kitchens can offer every possible food restriction you can imagine: “Vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, anything. We get it all. It’s very popular nowadays, our chef is well-versed. In fact, we’re doing a tasting right now with a vegan customer,” asserted Coane.

“We will allow a group to bring kosher catering in—if we can’t do it. We can provide recommendations, or we can have you select your own, as long as they have proper licensing for food service.”

You can expect American, classic style foods in the restaurant: anything from a great burger to a flatbread. They are well known for their wings in the restaurant bar area. From a banquet perspective, they provide everything one would expect—steak, fish, chicken—standard banquet food.

Dual entrees are very popular, like steak and seafood, chicken and seafood. They can also do stations around the room at a reception: a carving station, hors d’oeuvres, Italian, Southern—which is popular here—and Mexican. The Hilton offers buffet style as well as plated service for your holiday event.

Book it!

It’s hard to quantify a specific dollar amount for an event because it can encompass many different requirements/details. However, to offer an example, a plated dinner event would be $35 on the low end, $42 for mid-range and $50 on the high end. These prices are per person and service charges and tax would be additional. They do serve alcohol and charge per person pricing for open bar.

To book your stylish Christmas party at the Hilton Atlanta Northeast, call Director of Sales and Marketing, Jessica Coane at 770-447-4747.

Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch offers southern-style fare and easy entertainment

Just in time for the summer season, Hilton Atlanta Northeast has launched a new dining option, Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch.

The casual dining experience brings understated luxury to an easy, breezy setting with comfortable patio furniture on a spacious outdoor deck, a full bar with top-shelf spirits and an impressive wine collection. The cuisine is Southern style and utilizes regionally sourced, farm-fresh ingredients.

“You really can’t ask for an easier setting or a more comfortable way to unwind,” said Andrew Stegen, executive vice president of operations for FullG Capital, the hotel operator. “In the old days, hotels had restaurants for the travelers, and the locals came occasionally. Now, it’s the other way around. You have to appeal to the people who live here.”

At a press preview on May 15, Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch was unveiled for the first time.

“Dahlia’s is a great addition for our hotel guests but also for the local community! We are most excited about our new porch, which is the perfect place for happy hour spritz, outdoor dining and future programming,” said Mike Roling, general manager of Hilton Atlanta Northeast. 

The food is led by executive chef Robert Chafflin, who said he likes to bring an approachable yet flavorful take on southern culinary staples. For the preview, guests were wowed with shrimp and grits, braised beef short ribs, mushroom risotto, shrimp po’boys, cheesecake with caramelized peaches and a whole lot more. 

The beverages were just as tantalizing – from the signature Black Dahlia to the unexpected Southern Dandie to an array of seasonal spritzes. 

“We are excited to bring a newly renovated restaurant space, brand new porch, and refreshed menu to our property,” said Roling. “We welcome the public, both locals and hotel guests alike, to come join us for a dining experience elevated by our southern hospitality.”

Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch also has a private dining area and a lounge area—perfect for relaxing after a busy day, grabbing a sumptuous meal with the family or meeting friends for lunch or dinner and drinks. Dahlia’s also provides catering for hotel events. For more information, visit dahliasrestaurant.com.
