NASHVILLE, TN. (February 8, 2024): HRI Hospitality [7] (“HRIH”), with
its local partner C.B. Ragland Company, announces the construction

Located in the bustling Gulch neighborhood and just steps away from
popular Nashville destinations including Lower Broadway, SoBro, and the
entertainment district, the 210-room dynamic hotel is scheduled to open
in early 2025.

“This topping out is a major milestone for Caption by Hyatt Nashville,
showcasing our dedication to delivering exceptional, high-quality
lifestyle hospitality in Nashville’s Gulch District,” says Michael
Coolidge, Chief Investment and Development Officer of HRI Hospitality.
“With strong partners like C.B. Ragland Company and Peachtree Hotel
Group, we look forward to unveiling this 12-story hotel, blending
vibrant and intentional design meant to be truly of the community – not
just in it – and setting a new standard for lifestyle hotels in the
heart of Music City.”

Caption by Hyatt Nashville is co-developed by HRI Hospitality and C.B.
Ragland, and upon completion, the hotel will be operated by HRI Lodging.
Hastings Architecture, LLC serves as the architectural design firm, with
Studio 11 Design leads the hotel’s interior design and J.E. Dunn
Construction Company serving as the project’s general contractor. The
hotel’s ownership group consists of HRIH, CB Ragland, Peachtree Hotel
Group and two local family offices.  

The forthcoming hotel will feature Nashville-inspired décor and
colorful murals throughout, in addition to 2,200 square feet of indoor
and outdoor meeting space, a mobile-first check-in experience, fitness
center, and welcoming culinary common space at the heart of the hotel
and signature to the Caption by Hyatt brand, _Talk Shop_. This
multi-functional food and beverage experience invites guests to connect
with each other and the destination, serves as a lively welcome area,
all-day lounge and workspace, coffee shop, grab-and-go artisanal market
and bar featuring American cuisine influenced by Nashville culture.

The project also includes a 7,000-square-foot restaurant space for lease
and a 150-stall parking garage that will service the hotel and
neighboring office buildings. Guests at the elevated property will have
direct access to the city’s best retail shops, restaurants, bars and
live entertainment.

“This is an exciting moment for Hyatt, HRI Hospitality, and C.B. Ragland,
with whom we have a long-standing, strong relationship,” said Jim
Tierney, senior vice president, development and owner relations, Hyatt.
“We’re grateful to collaborate with both to continue growing their Hyatt
portfolio with Caption by Hyatt Nashville, which will be grounded in a
commitment to caring for people and places. We look forward to bringing
the Caption by Hyatt brand to Nashville and helping transform how people
travel, connect, and interact with one another and the places around

lifestyle-forward hotel with the flexibility and self-guided options of
