The Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia Hotel in Dunwoody recently underwent a $50 million renovation. As part of the renovations, the hotel created a beautiful indoor public space, in which you will find a spacious lobby area, Parkwoods (a full-service new American restaurant), the Backyard at Parkwoods (an outdoor beer garden), and Lightwell Cafe & Cocktails (coffee/tea/cocktails).
Participating in the interior design of the public space of the Crowne Plaza Ravinia Hotel was Johnson Studio (also see: Instagram). Overall, the interior design is gorgeous and worth seeing in person (if you’re into interior design at hotels). The space is modern and open.
Atlanta Coffee Shops was invited to preview this new space by a marketing member of IHG staff. Initial impressions and photos from this visit to the hotel with a focus on Lightwell Cafe & Cocktails are below.
Lightwell Coffee & Cocktails is located on the first floor of the lobby of the hotel (or the second floor if you enter from the back side of the hotel, which is also open to the public; this is how ACS entered during this visit).
The Public Space at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia Hotel
A few more scenes from the general lobby / public space area of the Crowne Plaza Perimeter Hotel at Ravinia are presented below.
The two telephone-shaped chairs seen in the photo below are embedded with technology to let you experience simulated ambient lighting (from morning light to evening light). It’s an interesting concept…
If You Go
If you decide to visit Lightwell Cafe & Cocktails for a coffee drink, the location is inside the public/lobby area of the Crowne Plaza Perimiter Hotel at Ravinia.
There is free parking at the front of the hotel, but keep in mind that if you navigate to Ravinia 1, Ravinia 2, or Ravinia 3 parking areas, you have gone too far. The hotel will not be able to provide a reimbursement if you park in the parking lots of the adjoining buildings (they are separate businesses). So don’t make the same mistake as ACS made by having to pay $15 for parking on a weekend! Make an effort to find the free parking in front of the hotel and/or valet parking in front of the hotel.
A personal recommendation would be to visit during the evening so you can check out the outdoor area at the back of the hotel which feels like a small oasis with the waterfalls. Perhaps an ACS return visit to capture this part of the hotel will be forthcoming…

Note: there is no dedicated social media presence for Lightwell Cafe & Cocktails. You can navigate to the hotel’s dining page to see more information. Or check out the hotel’s Instagram page for more.
