Residents and visitors to Atlanta can now “waste away in Margaritaville” thanks to Club Wyndham Atlanta, the city’s newest hotel, and its first timeshare.

The 22-story dual-branded Margaritaville and Club Wyndham resort tower, located next to Downtown’s Ferris wheel at 155 Centennial Olympic Park Drive, officially opened last week. The structure overlooks the city’s main tourism district, offering guests views of the Georgia Aquarium, CNN Center, National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Bank of America building, and even Stone Mountain.

The second story of the resort houses Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville Atlanta restaurant, featuring live music, a larger-than-life margarita statue with parrots perched on the rim, a retail store, and delicious indulgences ranging from classic margaritas to “cheeseburgers in paradise.”

Mayor Andre Dickens was in attendance at the resort’s grand opening, noting that “the city of Atlanta is greater and better each and every day as companies come here, bring headquarters, bring projects like this, great developments for us to enjoy, and have a great quality of life. Those visitors that will come and enjoy Atlanta, they see what we have to offer and then they buy here and live here and never leave like most of the folks when they love Atlanta. I’m just thankful for the whole team at Club Wyndham and Margaritaville and Atlanta’s better because of it.”
