The five-story, 80,000 square foot property is comprised of 120 guestrooms, including 77 with full kitchens, a large patio with outdoor bar service, an outdoor pool, a fitness room and an 846-square-foot meeting space.
6,000 square feet of retail space is situated adjacent to the modern extended-stay hotel. Developed by Mountain Shore Properties (MSP), a Charleston, South Carolina-based developer, and managed by OHM, Hyatt House Tallahassee Capitol – University is located in the city’s Railroad Square Art District.
“We think the demand for travel in the back half of this year is going to be extremely strong,” said Stephen Wendell, CEO, MSP. “The underlying demand generators pre-Covid 19 still exist and show no signs of stopping. The fact is that some aspects of business travel can't be done virtually. It is my belief and hope that we are going to be in a far different world come summer.”
MSP selected the city of Tallahassee for the new hotel because it offers a unique and dynamic mix of government, university and business interests. It is home to the Florida Legislature as well as Florida A & M University and Florida State University.
