Hyatt has opened its first full-service hotel in Memphis, Tenn. The 227-room property, which began welcoming guests on April 15, is also the first hotel to open on the iconic Beale Street, in the city's downtown area.
The Hyatt Centric Beale Street Memphis features 9,000 square feet of meetings space in the historic William C. Ellis and Sons Ironworks and Machine Shop Building, which dates back to 1879. The Event Lawn offers an additional 3,500 square feet of outdoor space overlooking the Mississippi River.
The new hotel pays homage to the city's rich music culture, with hallway carpet designs that mimic sound waves and light fixtures that resemble treble clef notes. Meanwhile, the guest rooms are outfitted with vintage wall graphics, leather headboards and shower walls etched with the names of the top sights in Memphis.
The property also features a resort-style pool and three food-and-beverage outlets. CIMAS Restaurant serves Latin-American fare from 7 a.m. to midnight daily. In addition, guests can sip specialty cocktails in the lobby lounge or head to the rooftop whisky bar.
"Hyatt Centric Beale Street Memphis prides itself on offering an immersive experience that transports guests beyond the walls of the hotel to the heart of the action on Beale Street," said general manager Sarah Titus. "I’m excited to see our food-and-beverage experiences come to life and quickly evolve into sought-after destinations for those looking to indulge and imbibe. We’re eager to become a unique launchpad for savvy travelers who seek out a stay worth sharing."
