ATLANTA, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Glenn is hanging with a new crowd. Glenn hotel, Atlanta's premier property known for its warm Georgia hospitality, is now part of the Autograph Collection from Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE: MAR). Sage Hospitality manages Glenn hotel and is pleased to announce the hotel as the latest property to join the prestigious Autograph Collection, which is a group of independent hotels representing upscale and luxury properties with distinctive personalities.
"We're excited that Glenn is joining Autograph Collection. This premier hotel collection recognizes the vision of style, comfort, service and history we've instilled at the Glenn," said Walter Isenberg, President and CEO, Sage Hospitality.
"Our guests continue to enjoy the same independent and unique hotel experience they've come to expect from our hotel," said Nanci Sherman, Chief Happiness Officer of Glenn hotel.

Glenn's motto is "stay with a friend," and the hotel does everything possible to make visitors feel like they are the houseguest of a good friend, rather than a stranger in a hotel.

Hosts are on-call throughout the duration of the stay, from the welcome drink upon check-in to the final checkout.
Glenn's guests are welcome to home cooking at the hotel's restaurant. After your meal, head upstairs to the lively rooftop bar, with cocktail hours featuring the city's best DJs providing a soundtrack to the sweeping views of downtown Atlanta.
