Jackson, Miss. – June 3, 2009 - The partners and staff of MMI Hotel Group will celebrate the completion of eco-friendly renovations to the Cabot Lodge Jackson North property with a grand re-opening June 23, and a month-long Summer Arts Series showcasing work from Mississippi artists.
The grand re-opening will take place June 23 in the Cabot Lodge Jackson North great room, located at 120 Dyess Road in Ridgeland, Miss., and visitors and guests can enjoy guided tours of the newly renovated property, hors d’oeuvres and crafts demonstrations. Changes to the facility include a new stone exterior, renovated sleeping rooms and amenities that reflect Cabot’s theme, “where hospitality comes naturally,” as well as “protect the Earth”. Commitments made by MMI Hotel Group to reduce energy and protect the environment include low-flow toilets to conserve water, energy-efficient lighting, double-paned and tinted windows, and the use of post-consumer paper goods to conserve natural resources.
In addition to the grand re-opening, the celebration includes the Summer Arts Series, which begins June 9 in the hotel great room, and will continue each Tuesday, culminating June 30. Visitors can experience some of Mississippi’s best arts, crafts and cocktails from 4 to 6 p.m. incorporating quilting/fabric art, pottery, woodcarving, fiber artist, stained glass and glass beads.
Gaines Sturdivant, president of MMI Hotel Group said, “Cabot Lodge has always provided a unique offering to our community and patrons, and it is very important to us that the details of this brand really reflect our corporate policies with regard to our environment. We invite members of the community, as well as past, current and potential guests to stop by one of our great events this summer and see what we have to offer.”
As the passion of two native Mississippians, Earle Jones and Mike Sturdivant, Cabot Lodge Jackson North opened in 1985. Their goal has always been to provide unique features to guests, and above all, great quality at a low price.
