Valor Hospitality Plans Fall 2019 Opening of The Central Station Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee

USA, Memphis, Tennessee. July 29, 2019

Kemmons Wilson Companies along with Henry Turley Company announced today plans to open The Central Station, a 123-room boutique hotel in Memphis' iconic South Main District. The neighborhood's 105-year-old renowned transportation hub transformed into Memphis' newest boutique hotel, The Central Station, part of Curio Collection by Hilton™, will open doors in Fall 2019. The hotel will feature mid-century architectural design, a stunning community style restaurant and bar, world-class curated music experience, diverse meeting room spaces, and captivating local art.

Originally built in 1914 as a transit hub, The Central Station draws its historic charm from South Main's distinct architecture, unique history and community spirit. The boutique hotel features eight floors of elegant guest rooms, including nine suites, that evoke the essence of Memphis' rich hues through the color scheme, design elements and various interactive experiences. The rooms will showcase stunning views of the Mississippi river and Memphis, and feature one-of-a-kind photographs from local artist, Jamie Harmon, and EgglestonWorks speakers designed by Memphis-based audio designer, Jim Thompson, which will play curated music in each guest room.

Music will play a vital role in the guest experience at The Central Station. The hotel will be known for its Listening Lounge/Bar—name to be announced at a later date—which will host an expansive collection of curated vinyl records. The hotel's intimate Listening Room will showcase the legendary craftsmanship of Memphis-based EgglestonWorks speakers, and provide both guests and locals with a world-class audio experience. Additional amenities will include a fully equipped fitness center, over 7,000 square feet of meeting and event space, and 3,750 square feet of retail space.

"The Central Station has an incredibly rich and nuanced history in South Main and, on a larger scale, in Memphis, and we are proud to continue honoring the historical landmark's legacy," said McLean T. Wilson, Owner and Developer of The Central Station. "The hotel will incorporate the property's history through eclectic, art-focused design and decor, a world-class music experience and real, honest food. We wanted to showcase quintessential Memphis, and as a result, we endeavored to ensure that guests staying at the hotel have no-doubt they're in Memphis, have no-doubt they're in South Main and have no-doubt they're at The Central Station."

The Central Station Hotel will be managed and operated by Valor Hospitality.

The Central Station will be located in the heart of the birthplace of rock ‘n' roll, award-winning restaurants, historical landmarks, and a robust art scene, at 545 S Main Street, Memphis, Tenn.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
