Hyatt House Tallahassee Capitol – University and Olympia Hotel Management (OHM) have announced the hotel’s opening in the Florida state capital.
The five-story, 80,000-square-foot property has 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 (with 2,068 square feet of event space total). Six-thousand square feet of retail space is situated adjacent to the modern extended-stay hotel. Developed by Mountain Shore Properties (MSP), a Charleston, SC-based developer, and managed by OHM, Hyatt House Tallahassee Capitol – University is located in the city’s Railroad Square Art District.
MSP selected the city of Tallahassee for the new hotel because it offers a 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. At its heart is the Railroad Square Art District, known for fostering art, culture and small businesses. The eight acres of brightly painted historic industrial warehouses have been gradually transformed over the past four decades, beginning in the late '70s, by artistic visionary Nan Boynton, and continued under the ownership of Adam Boynton Kaye and Lily Boynton Kaye since 2002. The former lumber mill/industrial park has morphed into the workshops of artists and craftsmen and is now a hub of creative entrepreneurship.
MSP already has a successful track record in the Florida city, having developed and opened the Hampton Inn & Suites Tallahassee Capitol – University in 2018, which OHM also manages.
