Atlantans voted local woman to be recognized on The Ellis Hotel’s Women’s Only Floor

ATLANTA, GA, October 02, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Ellis Hotel, downtown Atlanta’s only boutique and independent hotel, announced 10 Georgia women it will honor on its Women’s Only Floor. In early September, Atlantans nominated — and then voted for — Georgia women who have empowered other ladies.

The Ellis is dedicating a room on its Women’s Only Floor to each of these 10 women. In honor of the winners, a framed bio will be placed in the rooms to represent each woman’s life and their diverse experiences that led them to play an influential role in the lives of other women.

The winners were selected by more than 330 votes. They are:
Virginia Killorin
Stefanie Jewett
Lynn Lilly
Jo Kirchner
Joanne Truffelman
Harriet Adams
Eloise Bracey
Elizabeth Hague
Diane Dougherty
Jessie Tunnell

As part of this celebration, The Ellis Hotel is inviting the 10 honorees and a friend to a happy hour at The Ellis Hotel’s Terrace Bistro on Oct. 17.

The Ellis Hotel’s Women’s Only Floor was designed to celebrate women and features art from Atlanta nonprofit The Chelko Foundation (which seeks to empower women through art).

“We look forward to recognizing these truly remarkable women and their accomplishments,” said Tom LaVaccare, director of sales and marketing at The Ellis Hotel. “Our Women’s Only Floor has always been an important part of the Ellis Hotel, and this is a tangible way for us to show our appreciation for the most impactful and inspiring women in Georgia.”

The Women’s Only Floor is a private-elevator access floor reserved for female travelers only and designed to celebrate women the moment they step onto the floor. Upon arrival, guests receive an Ellis cosmetics bag full of lavish L’Occitane conveniences including a effervescent bath salts, moisturizing hand crème, gentle face cream, soothing eye patches, a refreshing cleansing cloth, lavender pillow mist, ultra-rich lip balm, a seven-inch nail file and a pocket mirror. Inside each room, guests can enjoy comfy slippers, plush robes, Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, mineral bath gel, a body scrub pad and use of a curling iron and a flat iron.

Reserve your room on the Women’s Only Floor for only an additional $20/night for a deluxe room or an additional $40/night for a premium room by requesting the upgrade when you make your reservation online. You can also book by calling (407) 536-2724.
