The Residence Inn Atlanta Downtown is a 21-story hotel tower occupying the former Rhodes-Haverty Building at 134 Peachtree Street NW and Williams Street in the Fairlie-Poplar historic district of downtown Atlanta, Georgia. The building was designed by Atlanta architects Pringle and Smith. At the time of its construction in 1929, it was the tallest building in the city, and remained so until 1954.
The building and the district are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Origin of name
The building was constructed for the Rhodes Haverty Investment Company, a partnership of furniture magnates Amos G. Rhodes of Rhodes Furniture and J. J. Haverty of Haverty's. It was not named for the Rhodes-Haverty Furniture Company (1889-1908), which had already been dissolved.
