Atlanta’s Westin Peachtree Plaza is taking team-building to a new level, one that’s 72 stories and 723 feet high.
New this fall at the downtown hotel is a team-building activity for meeting attendees called “Climb the Peach.” Participants can opt to climb via the hotel’s inside stairwell. Their reward, in addition to a fitness boost, is a 360-degree view of the metro area, from Turner Field to Stone Mountain and beyond.
When the Westin Peachtree Plaza was built in 1976, it was the tallest building in Atlanta. It now ranks fifth but is still the tallest hotel in the Southeast.
To launch the “Climb the Peach” program, members of the International Association of Fire Chiefs led a trek to the top in late August, to honor firefighters lost in the 9/11 attacks in New York. Participants climbed the equivalent of 100 flights of stairs, the same number of floors as the World Trade Center.
The 1,073-room Westin Peachtree Plaza has 53 meeting rooms totaling 80,000 square feet, including the 15,121-sq. ft. Peachtree Ballroom (capacity: 2,500). For details on “Climb the Peach” and the hotel, go HERE.
