DULUTH, GA – August 14, 2017 – Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta, voted 'Best Hotel Runner-Up' by Gwinnett Daily Post's 2017 Reader's Choice Awards, welcomes Florida State University and University of Alabama fans as they travel to Atlanta for ESPN College GameDay®.
Sonesta Gwinnett Place is offering football fans complimentary parking and internet, two delicious onsite restaurants and full room service, indoor and outdoor pools and the most comfortable accommodations. The hotel is a short drive to the nearest MARTA train station that will take guests directly to the stadium—eliminating the need to worry about Downtown Atlanta traffic and overpriced parking fees.
ESPN College GameDay® will kick off the 2017-18 season on Saturday, September 2, 2017. Florida State and Alabama will face off at 8 p.m. EST at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home of the Atlanta Falcons. This will be the 11th visit to Atlanta for College GameDay® and is expected to be nothing short of a good time. The show starts at 9 a.m. EST on ESPN®.
If one game just isn't enough, guests can turn their trip into a total football vacation by attending a second game at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium when Georgia Tech takes on the University of Tennessee on Monday, September 4 at 8 p.m.
“It's always exciting to see who and what events come to the Atlanta area,” said Mike Boyer, director of sales and marketing at Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta. “College football is a big deal in the South and we look forward to welcoming visitors to relax and treat themselves to the amenities and accommodations here at Sonesta Gwinnett Place during Labor Day weekend and throughout the football season."
