White Lodging Closes On Property for Hyatt Place Nashville

MERRILLVILLE, IN /PRNewswire/ -- The downtown Nashville skyline will have a new look in 2013 thanks to the addition of the Hyatt Place Nashville (top left photo).

This month White Lodging, one of the hospitality industry's fastest growing independent development, ownership and management companies, closed on the property for the new hotel, the first and only Hyatt property in the downtown.

The hotel, located at 301 3rd Ave. South in downtown Nashville, will be constructed on the former site of Rock City Machine Co, and will be developed and managed by White Lodging. Construction is scheduled to begin in May with the 255-suite hotel opening in December 2013.

"The recent growth in downtown Nashville has been well planned and we believe this will serve as a catalyst for even greater growth in the coming years," said Deno Yiankes (middle right photo), president and CEO investments and development division for White Lodging. "We are thrilled to be bringing a Hyatt Place hotel to the heart of downtown's expanding convention and entertainment district."

All 255 suites are 20 percent larger than the average hotel room, and decorated in Hyatt's signature, upscale decor. Guests can relax in separate sitting and sleeping areas equipped with a wet bar and mini fridge after spending time at one of the countless live music venues just two blocks away on Broadway, the street where many of today's top musical artists got their start.

The hotel, White Lodging's second in Nashville, will complement the construction of the Music City Center (lower left rendering).

Nashville's new convention center scheduled to open in 2013 on 19 acres in Nashville's downtown and only a block away from the hotel site.

 Along with the convention center, Hyatt Place Nashville guests will be a block away from the newly expanded Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and a short walk from the city's business district.
