ATLANTA — With 237 rooms to fill and 74 condos to sell, the Downtown Atlanta W Hotel & Residences is adding another luxury to draw in business.
It’s a rooftop helipad and helicopter service to give downtowners quick access to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, along with offering a full menu of aerial tours.
But getting to and from the Airport isn’t cheap. It’s a $200 tab one-way for up to three people.
“We’re providing charter service, air taxi service to the W from various airports, making it from Hartsfield-Jackson it’s a very short ride of five to six minutes,” said Mike Russell, President of Prestige Helicopters, the Company running the service. “You take normal rush hour traffic where a ride from the W by ground should be 20-to-30 minutes could be 45 minutes with a bad accident.”
The W Residences Downtown Atlanta is represented by Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty and has an on-site sales center and decorated models. There are 74 residences priced from the $400s to $3 million and decorated models. Please contact Angel Ramos or Tracy Glass for more information, or view the web site: www.wresidencesatlanta.com.
