Music City celebrates arrival of Hyatt Centric Downtown Nashville

by | 12 Aug 2021 | Hotel Openings, Projects

Designed by Hastings with interiors from Stonehill Taylor, Hyatt Centric’s new property is now welcoming guests in Nashville’s vibrant SoBro District.

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has created this 252-key hotel in partnership with CB Ragland Company in a central location close to Broadway Street.

A locally inspired hotel concept

Intended to provide adventurous travellers with a truly immersive experience, Hyatt Centric Downtown Nashville aims to reflect the character of Southern living. The work of more than 20 local artists, curated alongside the Nashville Artist Collective, features throughout the hotel, which is home to 252 guestrooms, including 11 suites, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing views over the Cumberland River.

A wall covering featuring the Tennessee state bird and silhouettes of native flora greets guests on entry, and the lounge area is distinguished by a ceiling painted blue to represent the ceilings of Southern porches. Meanwhile, a metal chandelier pays homage to country music via its detailing inspired by the outfits worn by famous singers down the years – and the property further embodies Nashville’s nickname, Music City, through the inclusion of a piano, record player and vinyl record collection in its lobby.

This locally inspired property was designed by Nashville-based firm Hastings, supplemented by interiors from Stonehill Taylor.

An immersion into the destination

Hyatt Centric Downtown Nashville’s accommodation includes ten standard corner suites featuring wraparound windows, wet bars, millwork closets, breakfast tables and L-shaped sofa beds, as well as an upgraded bathroom complete with freestanding tub. The Presidential Suite also boasts a full-sized fridge, vanity area and record player with curated vinyl, vintage arcade-game system and ping-pong table.

This accommodation is joined by the ninth-floor rooftop pool and bar, two lounge areas, meeting rooms with outdoor terraces and a fitness centre with downtown views. The hotel’s signature restaurant Ella’s, which is named after co-owner Michael Hayes’s grandmother, serves classic Southern cuisine, while rooftop bar and restaurant Lala’s offers specialty cocktails, a range of rosé wines and light bites.

The property also has 7,600 sq ft of meeting space, including an outdoor terrace, in which each room is named after a different musical instrument, from the Tambourine Lounge to the 2,000 sq ft Mandolin ballroom.

Hyatt Centric’s latest outpost is also ideally placed for travellers who want to explore Nashville for themselves. Conveniently, popular sites such as Ascend Amphitheater, Country Music Hall of Fame, Music City Center and the National Museum of African American Music are all located nearby.
