Memphis welcomes Hyatt Centric Beale Street

by | 25 Apr 2021 | Hotel Openings, Projects

Hyatt Centric, Hyatt Hotels Corporation’s upper-upscale lifestyle brand, has landed in Memphis, launching a 227-key property filled with references to the city’s musical heritage.

Downton Memphis’ iconic Beale Street, famous for its nightclubs, restaurants and shops, has been boosted by the unveiling of its first hotel. Part of the One Beale mixed-use development, Hyatt Centric Beale Street Memphis is a vibrant, social hub, ideal for those looking to experience the city’s famed Entertainment District and beyond.

Music-inspired interiors

Inside, the sleek, modern interiors reflect Memphis’ spirit and energy, subtly nodding to the city’s rich music culture, with hallway carpets featuring patterns that mimic soundwaves and light fixtures that resemble treble clef notes. Meanwhile, the 227 guestrooms, which include 12 suites, feature oversized windows that frame sweeping views of the Memphis skyline and the Mississippi River, while shedding natural light onto a neutral colour palette and carefully considered details like vintage wall graphics, leather headboards, and shower walls etched with the city’s signature names and sights.

The hotel also has the only resort-style pool experience in the downtown area, where guests can snack on delectable bites and watch regular entertainment from an expansive sundeck and private poolside cabanas. In addition, there are two dining options, including an all-day Latin American-inspired restaurant, as well as Beck & Call, a rooftop whisky bar serving craft cocktails and small bites amid an open-air patio concept complete with fire pits.

Incorporating heritage features into a contemporary hotel

Elsewhere, guests can make use of 9,000 sq ft of flexible meeting space, which occupies the former William C Ellis and Sons Ironworks and Machine Shop, constructed in 1879 – materials from the original shop machinery can be found in the lobby. The pet-friendly hotel also has a 24-hour Lobby Market, a fitness studio and valet service.

“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 Sarah Titus, general manager. “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 travellers who seek out a stay worth sharing.”
