White Lodging services recently welcomed clients and guests to downtown Nashville to watch the final beam be put in place to complete the Hyatt Place Nashville/Downtown's structural construction at a Topping Out ceremony. The 255-room hotel broke ground in July 2012 and is slated to open in December 2013. The hotel will be owned by affiliates of Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. and White Lodging and is the first new, select service construction venture for Host.
The hotel will include the Hyatt Place brand's signature stylish design and practical amenities with forward-thinking technology, including 24/7 guest kitchen serving made-to-order snacks and entrees, intimate bakery cafe featuring specialty coffees, premium beers and wines and cocktails, free Wi-Fi and remote printing access throughout the hotel, and complimentary morning Kitchen Skillet breakfast featuring freshly prepared breakfast sandwiches and more.
All 255 guestrooms are 20 percent larger than the average hotel room and will feature separate sitting and sleeping areas with the brand's Cozy Corner, a 42-inch HDTV, a mini fridge, and the plush Hyatt Grand Bed.
Hyatt Place Nashville/Downtown will be the sixth Hyatt Place hotel in the Nashville area and White Lodging's second hotel in Nashville. It will complement the construction of the Music City Center, Nashville's new convention center scheduled to open in 2013 on 19 acres in Nashville's downtown area, located just one block from the hotel. Along with the convention center, Hyatt Place Nashville/Downtown guests will be a block away from the newly expanded Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, a short walk from the city's business district and around the corner from one of the countless live music venues just two blocks away on Broadway, the street where many of today's top musical artists got their start.
