MEMPHIS, TN – May 4, 2021 – Developed by LPI Memphis in conjunction with MMI Hotel Group and LRC2 Properties, The Memphian, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, a boutique hotel located in Midtown Memphis’ Overton Square, is set to bring a colorful new hospitality experience to Midtown Memphis when it open on May 4, 2021. The hotel will be a member of Tribute Portfolio, Marriott International’s growing global family of characterful, independent hotels drawn together by their passion for captivating design and their drive to create vibrant social scenes for guests and locals alike. The project features 106 guest rooms including 9 suites in its 73,523 square feet of space, as well as on-property dining, a 24-hour state-of-the-art exercise studio, curated retail experience, and rooftop event space.
At The Memphian, the attention is in the artful details of the thoughtfully-designed accommodations, mixing timeless architecture with cleverly layered modern furniture and accessories. Enjoy the plush comfort of a stay in a king or queen guest room featuring luxurious pillow top beds and a stylish bathroom stocked with cozy bathrobes and exclusive toiletries. Junior studio-style suites ensure more space to spread your wings with the addition of a sitting area, while in the King suite, guests can enjoy separate spaces dedicated to living and sleeping.
The Memphian is home to two unique food and beverage concepts, both destinations not to be missed by locals and visitors alike. The lobby level eatery designed by Dryden Studio, Complicated Pilgrim, serves daily breakfast and dinner with a side of world-class service and a “door is always open” vibe. The restaurant houses the neighborhood’s only full-service coffee-to-cocktail bar featuring Lavazza Coffee, allowing guests to transition seamlessly from day to night. Enjoy local and regional fare from a new perspective, where special attention is paid to fresh ingredients and partners who share the hotel’s commitment to quality and community.
The hotel is also home to a rooftop bar designed by GCD Interiors, Tiger and Peacock. The venue showcases ingredient-forward cocktails, approachable bar fare ideal for sharing, and some of the best views Midtown Memphis has to offer.
A team of experienced event experts, an unbeatable central Memphis location, and a variety of one-of-a-kind spaces (both on-property and a short walk from the hotel) guarantee the ideal setting for get-togethers of all shapes and sizes. While The Memphian’s Champagne Room and Stargazer Room are private spaces best suited for business meetings and more intimate guest lists, the full dining rooms and patios at Complicated Pilgrim or Tiger and Peacock are available for buyout to ensure the perfect backdrop for larger group gatherings.
Management company MMI Hotel Group has announced the leadership team who will serve as ambassadors for The Memphian, paying keen attention to every last detail and demonstrating a rich understanding of the guest experience.
Bobbie Peppers, the hotel’s Director of Sales, also brings an unwavering passion to the team. Coupled with her accomplished skillset with a 15-year proven track record of increasing sales for properties including Omni Louisville Hotel, Sheraton Music City Hotel, Tunica Properties, Hilton Memphis Hotel and Marriott Downtown Hotel in Memphis, The Memphian is more than confident with putting its growth in her capable hands.
“We couldn’t be more excited to debut our unique and vibrant hotel in the Memphis market as part of Tribute Portfolio, creating an experience that redefines the standard of southern hospitality,” said Micajah Sturdivant, President of MMI Hotel Group.
MMI Hotel Group has owned and operated more than 50 hotels around the American South since 1956. Now led by the third generation of the family, MMI Hotel Group has properties in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Texas and Tennessee.
