Downtown Hampton Inn

13 posts in this topic

The former Greystone Hotel, a 10-story building at the corner of Commerce and Bibb Streets downtown, across the street from the Renaissance Hotel construction site, is being renovated to become a Hampton Inn. The structure was converted to office use in the 1970�s, last used by First Tuskegee Bank. Expected to open by the end of 2007, the new hotel will feature 86 guest rooms, meeting rooms, a ballroom and a fitness room.

Excellent choice as it was a flop house hotel in the sixties with no attractions or reason for its existence. Now I believe it might have chance if they do it right. Especially if there are some middle class amenities - pool restaurant etc.

Appreciate the pic. I see that without shade that corner is still one of the hottest in MGM. Looks like they will need their own parking? I wouldn't want to cross Commerce in a rainstorm from some parking deck!

Hopefully the street tree planting program will take care of that shade issue soon. Good point about the parking - I guess it will share the new RSA hotel deck. The facade on the Hank Williams museum next door needs some serious work. Maybe Bocephus will loan them some money.

I love it when hotels reuse existing historic structures. Congrats to Montgomery; Hampton Inn is a well-respected name in the hotel industry.
