First Tennessee My Place under development

My Place began construction on its first hotel in Tennessee. Ryan Rivett, president and CEO of My Place, took part in a groundbreaking ceremony at 1004 Cumberland Center Boulevard in Lebanon, Tenn. The property is located near Nashville.

The hotel is owned by MP Nashville and operated by Legacy Management. Each extended-stay guestroom at the new My Place will include a My Kitchen, complete with a two-burner cooktop, a microwave and a full refrigerator. The property is pet friendly, includes on-site laundry facilities, complimentary high-speed internet service and a 24-hour My Store, located in the hotel lobby and stocked with supplies for guest convenience.

“We are very excited to welcome My Place Hotels to Lebanon and to the Cumberland Center Development," Bernie Nash, mayor of Lebanon, said in a statement. "We feel it is an excellent location for the expansion of their brand, being right o of I-40. With the growth of Lebanon, Wilson County and Nashville there continues to be a need for more lodging, especially with the New Expo Center. We thank them for the investment in Lebanon.”

“Newly constructed economy extended-stay hotels are hard to find,” Eric Myers, managing partner at My Place, said in a statement. “That’s why I think a My Place Hotel is perfect for a busy interstate and construction market like Lebanon, Tennessee. Couple that with easy access to Nashville and a My Place Hotel was the logical decision. We’re grateful for the opportunity to celebrate our new roots with this rapidly growing community, home of Tennessee’s first My Place hotel."

My Place Hotels of America currently has 32 hotels open and operating with a near-term pipeline of 32 additional hotels and midterm commitments for upwards of 40 more hotels to follow. The company is based out of Aberdeen, S.D.
