More than just a hotel, this lifestyle boutique will create an entirely new space for tourists and locals alike to catch up with friends or share the latest gossip. Every corner of Hotel Forty Five will tell a story of the area’s historical significance, reawakening the spirit of Macon through its timeless decor and artful elements and attracting a new traveler eager to connect with the community. Opening along with the hotel will be three new dining venues: Hightales Rooftop Bar, located on the sixth-floor rooftop; Loom, the hotel’s street-level, chef-driven restaurant; and the eclectic Reckon Coffee & Wine Bar.
