Head over to Living Social’s website to see an exciting deal from your favorite hotel right here in the heart of midtown!
The Artmore Hotel prides itself with a staff that is committed to excellence. With our new “Meet Me” series, we want to shed a spotlight on the people who make sure our guest have top notch service.
Meet Yassin Rherras. A native from the Kingdom of Morrocco, Yassin moved to Atlanta 4 years ago to be with his wife. He has been a valet here at the Artmore for over 3 1/2 years.
One of the many things that Yassin enjoys at the Artmore is meeting all of the famous people. So far he recalls meeting Fantasia, and the Insane Clown Posse. He also likes to learn about all of the interesting cultures that come to stay at the Artmore.
One of the best memories that Yassin has here at the Artmore is when he saved a young girl from a drug overdose. He was the first on the scene and was able to get her the attention that she needed. The next day the lady came up to him and gave him the biggest hug he ever received.
When Yassin is not wowing people with his excellent personality, or conversing in either Arabic, French, or German, he can usually be found in a Jaimacan Club “jamming to Bob Marley” or enjoying some Blues. Most of his time away from the Artmore, he is either fishing, swimming, jet skiing, or most likely, spending time with his 3 year old son.
Like our rooms, everyone that works at the Artmore is unique and the best that Atlanta has to offer. Call us at (404) 876-6100 to book your room today.
We regularly keep tab on our presence online and something that has tickled my fancy a bit is the discovery that when you start typing Artmore Hotel Google offers up the suggestion of “Artmore Hotel Haunted”. If you don’t know what an autocomplete is, take a look below to understand what I am talking about.
Although we have (unfortunately) never heard about guests talking about the hotel being haunted before, apparently Tong Ye, a young woman, was visiting from China had a dream that she interpreted as the hotel being haunted. For more information about this check out her story. You’ll need to translate the page using Google Translate.
I especially loved Tong Ye’s “Haunted” Artmore photo that she shared on her blog:
Have you experienced anything at The Artmore Hotel? Share your stories with us! I will post them all here! I am staying at the hotel next week and I’ll be sure to stay in room 202!
The hotel was at one point an apartment building before being converted into a hotel and has been around since the early 1900’s. If anyone would like to dig up the history on the building I would also be happy to share it here. Want to get in touch or send me a story? Message us on the Artmore Facebook page!
Still nothing from any other guests but I did come across this old announcement of the Artmore being built in Atlanta that I thought was pretty great.
After posting in May still nothing from any guests. So I suppose it is not haunted. My stay was uneventful as well…

“I never paint dreams, I painted my own reality, I paint whatever passes through my mind without any other consideration.” This quote by Frida Kahlo not only explains her paintings but the passion of her culture in the 1900’s. For the first and only time in 2013, “Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics, and Painting,” will be exhibiting key paintings by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. These rare paintings tell the story of an artist during a troubling time of the Mexican Revolution and an inspiring time of the Mexican Renaissance. Frida and Diego’s art shows true passion for their country and cultural traditions of the lower class. Frida’s culture focused paintings gives insight to her personal beliefs and the passion of keeping the Mexican culture during the Mexican Revolution.
This exhibition will feature February 14, 2013 – May 12, 2013 only at the High Museum of Art and this will be the only exhibition in the United States. The exhibition features many paintings drawn from Mexico’s Dolores Olmedo collection as well as Jazques and Natasha Gelman collection of Mexican Art. If you are looking to be surrounded by culture in one of Mexico’s renowned painters in the 20th century, this exhibition would not be one to miss.

This adventurous getaway will not only stimulate your desire for culture and history, but further your appreciation of a society fighting for their way of life. A stay at the Artmore Hotel combined with an afternoon at the High Museum is a cultural winning combination.
The Producers is coming back to the stage after an 8 year absence. This big, comedic Broadway Musical is a record winner of 12 Tony Awards. This play, written by Mel Brooks, has set the bar for in-your-face-humor and has proclaimed itself as an “equal opportunity offender.” Co-written by Thomas Meehan, the writer of Annie, this is sure to be the theater event of the year.
Returning to Atlanta’s Fox Theatre Friday 25th through the 31st, join Max Bailystock and Leo Bloom in their adventure to create the most infamous Broadway dud and make millions of dollars in the process. The only thing that could go wrong for these two is if the play turns out to be a phenomenal sensation. Through this chaotic adventure, these two unlikely acquaintances become friends while encountering hilarious hijinks on the way to success.
You can turn this fabulous night at the theater into a remarkable weekend getaway by staying at the Artmore Midtown Atlanta Hotel and taking in all this city has to offer. Only 5 minutes from the Fox Theatre, you would be right in the middle of the cultural hub of the city. Pay a visit to the High Museum which is merely a short walk from the hotel. Afterward, enjoy fine dining and shopping at Atlantic Station, also just a few blocks from the hotel. And at night, wind down around a fire pit with a drink from our studio lounge. This will surely be a getaway to remember.
