Until 2013, it was a spinoff of the famed Memphis Peabody Hotel but now it's a Hyatt to its conventioneering core. Expect gleaming glass, echoing marble, sculptural waterfalls, luxuriously appointed bathrooms, ankle-level lights that switch on when they sense your movement, and other high-end touches that appeal to business travelers. Walking to I-Drive’s restaurants is easy (driving out of the remote parking structure, not so much), and the free-form tropical pool is gorgeous, but in sum it feels more like a place where expense accounts are spent than where cherished memories are made.
