Embassy Suites Memphis in Tennessee starts $7M makeover

The 220-suite Embassy Suites hotel in Memphis, Tenn. started a $7-million renovation, expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2015.  After the renovation, the property is expected to have a brand new lobby, atrium, guestrooms and an additional boardroom. The hotel's on site restaurant, 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. The atrium refresh is expected to reflect Embassy Suites' vision of interactive living spaces. Guest rooms will also be addressed in this effort.

Located at 1022 South Shady Grove Road, the hotel is 12 miles from the Memphis International Airport and provides complimentary airport transportation. The hotel currently has 3,000 square feet of meeting space, but will be adding an additional small boardroom with the renovation.
