Faits

  • Glass elevators in the small cylinder lead to a revolving restaurant and public observatory.
  • Tallest hotel building in the world when completed, surpassed by Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center.
  • The height on the Peachtree Street side is 700 feet from the street to the penthouse.
  • The building suffered extensive damage from a F2 tornado that struck nearby on the evening of March 14, 2008.
  • During the 2008 tornado, the building lost over 100 windows and the top swayed several feet.
  • The top floor rotates on a 30 minute cycle while the one below rotates every 60 minutes.
  • The Peachtree Plaza was Atlanta's tallest completed building from 1976 to 1987, when the One Atlantic Center became Atlanta's tallest.
  • Multiple scenes from the 1981 film Sharky's Machine, starring Burt Reynolds were filmed within the hotel and Sundial restaurant.
  • Although several local Atlanta radio stations use the broadcast tower on top of the building, WZGC "Dave FM", owned by CBS Radio, is the owner and primary operator.
  • Floors 1-4 contain parking spaces for 1,000 cars, floor 5 is the lobby, floors 6-14 contain meeting space, floors 15-70 include 1,068 guest rooms and floors 71-73 contain a revolving restaurant, observation deck, and lounge called the Sundial Bar & View.
  • The design is very similar to the Marriott Renaissance Center in Detroit, with a large glass cylinder attached to a much narrower one.
  • Overtook Radisson Royal Hotel in Moscow as the world's tallest hotel.
  • The 220 foot free-fall by stuntman Dar Robinson from the tower in Sharky's Machine is the longest outdoor free-fall stunt, completed without wires, carried out for a commercial film.
