March 25, 2015 // Franchising.com // MEMPHIS, Tenn. and MCLEAN, Va. – The 220-suite Embassy Suites hotel in Memphis, TN has officially started a $7 million renovation, expected to be complete in the second quarter of 2015 with a brand new lobby, atrium, guest rooms and additional board room. The hotel’s on site restaurant, a favorite among locals and guests, Frank Grisanti’s Restaurant, will also undergo a major upgrade.
Currently the entire original lobby atrium is being transformed into more of a social lobby where guests will feel comfortable spending time outside their rooms. The atrium refresh will reflect Embassy Suites’ vision of modern, interactive living spaces, which will be unique to the Memphis marketplace. Guest rooms will also be addressed in this effort. The hotel remains open to guests. Located in the Poplar/Germantown area, Embassy Suites Memphis is owned by a partnership led by Lodging Capital Partners, LLC based in Chicago, IL, and managed by Hilton Worldwide.
“Guests will soon be able to enjoy the results of the extensive renovation currently taking place at Embassy Suites Memphis,” said Heather Detlefson, general manager, Embassy Suites Memphis. “We are confident our guests will be very pleased with the improvements to our signature Embassy Suites amenities including our spacious two-room suites, perfect for families that need more room.”
Located at 1022 South Shady Grove Road, the hotel is 12 miles from the Memphis International Airport and provides complimentary airport transportation within a three mile radius of the hotel. The hotel currently features 3,000 square feet of meeting space, but will be adding an additional small boardroom with the renovation.
The Embassy Suites Memphis provides guests with services and amenities including locally renowned restaurant, Frank Grisanti’s. All Embassy Suites hotels offer free made-to-order breakfast each morning, a nightly complimentary Evening Reception* and two-room suites offering WiFi access with a separate living area, private bedroom, two flat-screen high-definition televisions and wet bar fitted with a microwave, mini-fridge and a selection of gourmet coffee and teas from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
