Music City, USA, has a new hospitality hotspot. Located in Nashville’s South of Broadway (SoBro) neighborhood, Hyatt Centric Downtown Nashville is a 170,000-square-foot, 252-key hotel featuring two ground-floor restaurants, eleven suites, meeting rooms, and amenity spaces, including a rooftop pool bar.
Working with C. B. Ragland, Stonehill Taylor’s interior design team sought to replicate the character and charm of southern living, staying true to the fun and spirited Hyatt Centric brand, and reflecting a city steeped in vibrant history and culture.
The hotel tells the story of a well-traveled native Nashvillian. The interior speaks to the residential facets of her home, such as the bold painted ceilings which are a nod to southern porches. Each room tells a different story, and each space offers a collection—rugs, textiles, accessories, and materiality—that feels comfortable, welcoming, and true to its Nashville roots, while also possessing a uniqueness that reflects the life of a traveler or adventurer.
The building’s design by architecture firm HASTINGS evokes the historically ad-hoc development of the neighborhood in a refined and forward-looking material palette.
Nashville Artist Collective, meanwhile, curated and commissioned 20 local artists to create 1200 pieces, ranging from original works to prints and giclées, which are showcased throughout the hotel’s guest rooms, suites, common areas, hallways, and elevators.
