DULUTH -- Gwinnett's largest hotel will soon be under new management.

Boston-based Sonesta International Hotels Corporation recently announced it would take over management of the Gwinnett Place Marriott in May. The 17-floor, 426-room hotel located at 1775 Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth includes 15 suites and three concierge floors.

The brand will change from a Marriott to a Sonesta, but Sonesta officials will honor all contracts, agreements and rates negotiated with the hotel under the Marriott brand.

It also features more than 16,000 square feet of meeting and event space, and an 8,000 square foot ballroom can seat up to 1,000 people.

The hotel also offers a steakhouse, lounge, pool, health club, sun deck and a casual dining restaurant.

Sonesta operates properties around the world, including upscale hotels, resorts, cruise ships and extended stay hotels.
