The Project

Not just in the community, but of the community. That is Caption by Hyatt’s design promise; and the first ever Caption by Hyatt branded hotel, built in Memphis, Tennessee, fully delivers on that promise. The upscale, select-service lifestyle brand introduces a dynamic hospitality experience with an unmistakable neighborhood feel. Located at famed Beale Street in downtown Memphis, the Caption by Hyatt Beale Street Memphis blends seamlessly into the vibrant urban environment. Housed in the historic façade of the Wm. C. Ellis & Sons Ironworks and Machine Shop building, the 136-room hotel tower rises above, offering guests endless views of the Memphis skyline and the Mississippi River.

Reflective of the brand’s eclectic contemporary-meets-urban industrial aesthetic, the hotel features open light-filled spaces with a strong industrial flare. The property combines a layering of historic structural elements like exposed brick and original wooden and metal beams, vibrant colors, textures, and hand-painted murals that nod to the storied city it calls home.

The heart of Caption by Hyatt Beale Street Memphis is Talk Shop, the brand’s reimagined arrival experience where guests enjoy a lively multi-functional welcome area, all-day lounge and workspace, coffee shop, eatery, grab-and-go artisanal market and cocktail bar. Energy reverberates throughout the colorful space, which was designed to encourage social interaction– a place to eat, drink, and connect – inside, and outside at the adjoining beer garden courtyard. Open to the street’s pedestrian walkway, the expansive patio is uniquely housed within the building’s historic façade in a way that allows guests to fully engage with the active downtown neighborhood.

Eclectic personality and industrial-inspired design continue to the guestrooms, which feature repurposed non-traditional materials, bold colors, contemporary fabric patterns, and quirky Memphis-inspired graphic wallcoverings. Modular closets and work-play lounges with accessible power outlets allow guests to work, eat and relax separately from the sleeping area.
