Sonesta International Hotels Corporation has teamed up with The Brandon Agency to promote its new property in Atlanta, Sonesta Gwinnett Place (formerly Atlanta Marriott Gwinnett Place.) The Sonesta flag was raised on May 17. The agency will be assisting with the hotel’s public relations efforts, and will focus its efforts on driving leisure and group bookings for Sonesta Gwinnett Place.

Sonesta Gwinnett Place represents the largest hotel in Gwinnett County and is located in the heart of the Gwinnett Place neighborhood just northeast of downtown Atlanta. The hotel features 426 guest rooms with 15 suites and three concierge floors.

This June, Sonesta Gwinnett Place opened Kaets Steakhouse, an all-new dining experience for guests. Kaets, which is ‘steak’ spelled backward, serves generous cuts of choice beef, fresh seafood and savory pasta entrees for dinner, seven days a week.

“We’re excited to expand our work with the Sonesta brand into the Atlanta marketplace,” said Scott Brandon, CEO of The Brandon Agency. “Our travel and tourism experience, particularly in the Southeast, will be an asset as we work with the hotel to drive bookings.”

“Sonesta Gwinnett Place is a great property in a great location,” said Marcy Adams, general manager of the hotel. “We’re enthusiastic about working with The Brandon Agency to help draw attention to the quality accommodations and event space available at the hotel.”

Sonesta Gwinnett Place is located near major entertainment venues, including the Gwinnett Arena, the Performing Arts Centre and the AAA Gwinnett Braves Coolray Field. Other attractions like Lake Lanier, World of Coca-Cola, the Georgia Aquarium, Zoo Atlanta and the CNN Center are located nearby. Local shopping options include Gwinnett Place Mall, Sugarloaf Mills Mall and the Mall of Georgia.
