Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta Signs Agreement to Become Official Hotel Partner for the NLL’s Georgia Swarm 


DULUTH, GA  – December 28, 2015 - The fastest sport on two feet has come to Atlanta, and Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta has joined forces with the newest Atlanta-based sports team – the Georgia Swarm of the National Lacrosse League (NLL). The hotel recently became the Official Hotel Partner of the Georgia Swarm. The partnership is set to begin during the 2016 season and runs through the 2018 season.

As the Official Hotel Partner of the Swarm, Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta’s logo will be featured along the field and on other signage throughout the Infinite Energy Arena. During all home games, Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta will be at a featured table in the concourse, and will be giving away fun items for kids, ArtBar certificates, night stays at the hotel and a grand prize of a signed Swarm jersey.

The hotel, which is located less than 10 minutes from Infinite Energy Arena, is offering a package tailored for lacrosse fans. During the 2016 season, fans can book a one-night stay and receive two tickets for the Colony Section for $133.

“We are pleased to officially announce our partnership with the Georgia Swarm,” said Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta General Manager David Kohlasch. “Lacrosse is one of the fastest-growing sports in America, and we are excited for one of the NLL’s top teams to come to the Atlanta area.”

We look forward to building a long-standing relationship and helping increase the number of visitors to Gwinnett County.”
