Nashville hotel to be converted as a Hyatt
HRI Properties and Hyatt Hotels Corporation announce plans to convert the current James Robertson building in Nashville, Tennessee into a luxury hotel joining The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio.
HRI Properties plans to spend approximately US$50 million to update the building into a 191-room hotel, and upon opening in late 2017, HRI Lodging will manage the hotel.
Hyatt says: “As with all properties in The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio, this new hotel will provide rich social currency through story-worthy, shareable experiences that guests will take with them long after their stay.”
The building, which is located at 118 Seventh Avenue between Broadway and Commerce, occupies prime real estate in downtown Nashville and is on the National Registry of Historic Places. It also has deep-rooted history, opened originally in 1929 as The James Robertson Hotel before converting to an apartment building in 1978.
