With the official Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting Ceremony set for August, the Holiday Inn Memphis Airport Hotel & Conference Center is now open for business.
The 374-room hotel located at 2240 Democrat Rd., in the heart of the revitalized airport area, has undergone an extensive multi-million dollar renovation and upgrades. The makeover of the hotel includes a new façade and signage, new restaurant, upgraded and refurbished guest rooms, bar, pool, sundeck and fitness center.
Noting that the Memphis property – a staple in this community for many years – will go forward as a Holiday Inn franchise, Growth Hospitality Management announced the opening on Thursday.
The hotel, which is located between the Memphis International Airport, the Federal Express Air Operations Center and the Nonconnah Corporate Center, has the largest meeting space of all hotel properties in the Mid-South. With over 33,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, the hotel’s amenities include 19 meeting rooms, virtual business center, state of the art fitness center with Yoga instructor, laundry accommodations, onsite restaurant with bar and free parking.
The hotel, according to a description by Growth Hospitality Management, “now brings contemporary style and artful detail to life with modern furnishings, bold use of color, and a glimpse of all things Memphis throughout.”
The team to lead the new establishment is Jose Gallego, general manager, Vicki M. Johnson, director of sales and marketing, Jeremy Martin, food and beverage director and Minh Nguyen as executive chef.
Open daily for breakfast and dinner, the hotel will begin serving lunch in August.
