Hyatt Hotel clears zoning hurdle for Main Street

First Chattanooga Hyatt hotel will be under the new "Caption by Hyatt" brand

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – A city zoning board passed a plan on Thursday for the first Hyatt hotel in Chattanooga.

It will be one of the first Caption by Hyatt brand hotels.

Developers 3H Group based in Chattanooga (Moxy Chattanooga) want to build it at 105 W. Main Street, which is now an empty lot near Feed Table and Tavern.

The plan is for a 123-room hotel with a roof-top bar.

Caption by Hyatt bills itself as more of a hang-out than a traditional hotel.

There is no lobby, just a place they call the Talk Shop which is “part restaurant, coffee shop, bar and communal workplace.

There now is a Caption By Hyatt Beale Street in Memphis with other planned locations in Asia.

Developers hope to begin construction here in the first half of next year and open a year and a half later.
