MMI Team Recognized as Finalist for Marriott Full Service Opening

Published April 8th, 2022

Corporate and property-level MMI team members were recognized by Marriott's full-service hotel leadership team for their successful opening of The Memphian, a Tribute portfolio property.  While there were many hotels to have opened even into the still distressed 2021 COVID market, only four hotels were designated as finalists for the efforts made in designing and developing a localized concept and guest committed to prior to opening and met or exceeded their expectations upon experiencing the hotel as a guest.

"We are honored that Marriott recognized the creativity and drive poured into The Memphian by so many MMI team members," stated Dominic Buompastore, MMI Hotel Group's Vice President of Operations.  "This property is beautiful, but the experience the team has sold to and brought to life for its guests is deserving of this recognition and more."

In the first year of operations, the subject property has been recognized by:
 - Marriott, its franchisor, for a strong service and sales opening.
 - Locals in polling of the best new bar and restaurants in Memphis.
 - The business community for the architecture and construction of the structure.
