Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced today the opening of Grand Hyatt Nashville. The 25-floor, 591-room luxury hotel is the first pillar of the remarkable and highly anticipated 18-acre Nashville Yards development. The new property offers a sophisticated retreat in the heart of Music City, with a prime locale – straddling the trendy Gulch neighborhood and vibrant downtown – surrounded by shopping, restaurants, bars, and entertainment.
Grand Hyatt Nashville is home to one of the tallest outdoor rooftop lounges in Nashville, a fifth-floor pool deck overlooking downtown, world-class spa R+R Wellness, and seven culinary experiences – including a new concept offering reimagined American classics from James Beard Award-winning chef, Sean Brock, at The Continental. The hotel also features 77,000 square feet of state-of-the-art event and pre-function space, including a 20,000 square foot grand ballroom, and is within walking distance to many of Nashville’s most popular attractions, including the Nashville Convention Center, Country Music Hall of Fame, and Bridgestone Arena.
History + Design in Downtown Nashville:
For over one hundred years, the site of the hotel and its parent campus, Nashville Yards, served as the home to a transportation hub and rail yard, lumber yard, brick yard and stone yard. The history of this site was vibrant, pioneering and defined by connections – connecting people, material, the community and Nashville to the surrounding regions of the United States. The hotel design for Grand Hyatt Nashville takes inspiration from the site’s history by incorporating reference to the rail lines in large art installations and creative lobby seating that pays homage to the lumber yard. Embracing the history of the surrounding area, which was vital in the development of and growth of the city, Grand Hyatt Nashville reharmonizes through innovative design and architecture and creates an enchanting destination within a destination.
Launching Seven New Culinary Experiences:
Grand Hyatt Nashville will feature a diverse array of lounges, dining venues and other food and drink experiences throughout the hotel. Venues include Tennessee to table cuisine at The Nashville Grange; the gilded lobby bar Aurum, which will feature a signature golden ale; lou/na, a 25th floor rooftop bar and lounge; Hummingbird, a coffee market featuring local roasters Stay Golden plus a variety grab and go food options; and Solstice, the fifth-floor poolside bar and restaurant overlooking Broadway.
At The Continental, chef and restaurateur Sean Brock’s passion for American culinary history melds with his reverence for the traditional elegance of hotel dining. Located on the entry level of the hotel, The Continental is a nouvelle approach to classic American fare, offering a lively and welcoming atmosphere, sophisticated design, impeccable service, and refined yet inventive dishes. The restaurant will open in phases beginning with carry-out, curbside, delivery through Toast, and room service. The Continental will open for limited dine-in service by reservation later this year.
