Wylie Hotel, set to open on Ponce in 2021, aims to be “Hotel Clermont’s more sophisticated older sister”
The property at 551 Ponce de Leon Avenue has been a lot of things since it was first built in 1929. In early 2021, it will be reborn again, this time as as Wylie Hotel.
While midcentury modern has had its recent resurgence, it’s now clear that the 70s are back, baby. For proof, step inside any number of Atlanta’s newest restaurants: Little Rey, Iberian Pig Buckhead, or Halsa at Serenbe.
To open an independent boutique hotel inside Atlanta’s perimeter is a big deal. (There are precious few in the city, for reasons upon which no one can quite agree.) But to open an independent boutique hotel above Atlanta’s most legendary strip club? Yes, that’s a big deal indeed.

In Atlanta, a comeback has arrived inside the recently transformed Hotel Clermont and directly above the lovably grungy Clermont Lounge. Yes, the French resurgence has materialized above a strip club.
The newly renovated rooms at the Hotel Clermont occupy the sweet spot for those who want a playfully retro atmosphere but not at the expense of creature comforts. Now the real question: When will it open?
Someone claiming to have the original "Clermont Hotel" sign that once sat perched atop the more iconic, neon "Motor Hotel" sign is selling it on eBay to the highest bidder.
