Question

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THE BILTMORE?

Answer

Designated as a residential “apartment hotel” popular during the 1920s, Biltmore Apartments along with its neighbor The Atlanta Biltmore Hotel opened in 1924 and were described as the “city’s point of contact with the world beyond its own borders.” The 11-story hotel and adjacent 10-story apartment building are an excellent example of the grand, modern hotels built across the country during this era. The success of these monumental hotels was fostered by the combination of improved transportation, mass production of inexpensive Ford motor cars, financial speculation based on an attitude of unbounded prosperity, and newly enfranchised middle-class vacationers. William Candler, son of Coca-Cola magnate Asa Candler, was the local financier behind the Biltmore project, purchasing the land for the hotel in 1921 and incorporating the Atlanta Biltmore Hotel Company in conjunction with Holland Ball Judkins and John McEntee Bowman of the New York-based Biltmore hotel chain. The Atlanta Biltmore, once known as the South’s supreme hotel, staged galas, tea dances, debutante balls, and recitals by visiting Metropolitan Opera stars. It served celebrities such as Franklin D. Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Mary Pickford, Bette Davis, and Charles Lindbergh. It was the initial home of the Atlanta Historical Society and the meeting place for many of the city’s civic organizations. For more than 30 years, WSB, the South’s first radio station, broadcast from its studios within the hotel and the radio tower on the hotel roof became a landmark on the city skyline. Currently, the former main hotel building (fronting West Peachtree) houses Class A commercial space and two meticulously renovated ballrooms for social functions, and the former suites/apartments building fronting Fifth Street are condominiums, known as Biltmore House. Both buildings are on the National Registry of Historic Places.
