There is no doubt about it! Nashville keeps growing at a torrid pace and the latest modern high-rise to take its place amongst the expanding forest of high-quality high rise hotels is the striking new Grand Hyatt. Rising from the footprint of the old Lifeway flagship bookstore on 10th Avenue and Broadway the Grand Hyatt Nashville is said to be inspired by Music City's history, charm and personality. The impressive 24-story hotel features 591 beautifully modern guest rooms, 77,000 square feet of event space, signature restaurants, multiple bars, a rooftop lounge, a pool deck overlooking the city, a Grand Club Lounge and a world-class spa.

Sure, the corporate offices probably hoped for a little more fanfare when the Grand Hyatt Nashville opened on October 1, 2020 in the middle of the pandemic. Certainly, this luxury hotel with the now developing Nashville Yards on its doorstep deserves all the accolades it can get. This sophisticated retreat in the heart of Music City, with a prime locale on the western edge of downtown offers walking distance from the Gulch and Midtown-but stay put for the tallest outdoor rooftop bar in Music City, sunny outdoor pool, a spa, and seven food and beverage experiences.
When we paid our first visit to the gleaming new structure we immediately headed to the rooftop lounge and joked with the bartender asking if anyone had jumped off yet. His answer was quite shocking when he replied that on New Year's Day 2021 staff and guests had quite the scare when two patrons exited the elevator and proceeded to jump off the top of the building performing a base jumping stunt that landed the Grand Hyatt Nashville its first taste of international press.
Now that it seems that Music City is moving past the debacle of the previous calendar year and the crazy tourists are returning in droves it surely won't be long until they all discover the fact that the Grand Hyatt Nashville offers the grandest view yet of the lower Broad section of town with stunning glimpses of the Bridgestone Arena, the Batman Building, the Cumberland River and the Capitol region.
"We are delighted to celebrate the grand opening of Grand Hyatt Nashville, a truly exceptional hotel located in the heart of downtown Music City and the very first project to open its doors within the Nashville Yards development," said Cary Mack, co-managing partner of Southwest Value Partners, the owner and developer of Nashville Yards. "I'm incredibly proud of the work that's gone into creating such an extraordinary property that blends Nashville's history and culture with outstanding amenities, stunning design, and industry-leading customer service. Above all, I wish to express our sincere gratitude to our partners at Clark Construction Group and Bell & Associates Construction, along with the men and women who have worked day-in and day-out to bring our vision to life."
"Grand Hyatt Nashville embodies the brilliant and captivating spirit of the Nashville Yards with thoughtful architecture and design," said Grand Hyatt Nashville General Manager John D'Angelo. "We are thrilled to open today to deliver a personalized guest experience that is authentic to Music City and serve as a social hub that entertains and delights locals and visitors."
"If Grand Hyatt Nashville was intended to be the cornerstone of the Nashville Yards development, they more than succeeded," said Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. "The full-service Grand Hyatt brand and the quality of the project are great additions to the market. They have truly enhanced our product."
Nashville Yards is an 18-acre project located in the heart of downtown Nashville. When complete, the project will be a walkable, urban community featuring high-end hospitality offerings, including a luxury Grand Hyatt hotel and the historic Union Station Hotel; exceptional retail and restaurant options; a four-acre entertainment district and concert venue spearheaded by AEG Worldwide and MGM; and creative and Class-A+ office space anchoring Amazon's future Operations Center of Excellence in Nashville, TN. The development will benefit from open plazas and green spaces, including a 1.3-acre urban park that will span the west side of the project from Broadway to Church Street.
