NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Hyatt Hotels Corporation plans to open 20 new luxury hotels and resorts worldwide by the end of 2020, with Grand Hyatt Nashville marking the brand’s entry into Tennessee.
Slated to open in fall 2020, the 25-story Grand Hyatt Nashville will offer one of the city’s largest event venues, with 77,000 square feet of high-tech event and pre-function space.
The 591-room hotel at the corner of Broadway and 10th Avenue will be America’s 12th Grand Hyatt and the first tenant to open at the massive Nashville Yards development.
Other features of the hotel include a signature restaurant, multiple bars, a rooftop lounge, a pool deck overlooking downtown, a Grand Club Lounge and world-class spa.
The west side of the Grand Hyatt will look out on a 1.3-acre public park that will have access to Broadway via a pedestrian ramp. The hotel’s podium, including its first five floors, will have glass windows and a stone finish, topped with an L-shaped glass tower.
The Nashville Yards development stretches across 17 acres and is named for the site’s industrial history. The area housed yards for marble, brick, lumber and rail operations in the past.
Amazon is building two office towers and residential towers are also in the works, along with an Anschutz Entertainment Group and MGM Resorts International entertainment district with music venues, a boutique hotel and other attractions.
Grand Hyatt Nashville has already announced the appointment of John D’Angelo as its general manager. D’Angelo brings two decades of Hyatt experience to Nashville, having most recently served as the resort manager of the 1,800-room Grand Hyatt Baha Mar in Nassau, Bahamas.
