New and Renovated: Curated Charm for Mid-size Meetings

The Central Station Memphis, Curio Collection by Hilton, Tennessee

Take a journey through the rich artistic and musical heritage of one of the south’s iconic cities. This property pays homage to the 105-year-old former train station it calls home through preserved original architecture and 123 guest rooms in mid-century style. A dedicated Listening Lounge with a full collection of Memphis city vinyl, the high-ceilinged “8 & Sand” Bar and a 6,000-square-foot ballroom are just a taste of the legacy you’ll find in this South Main soon-to-be institution.

Mr. C Coconut Grove, Miami

In keeping with the theme of old-world European hospitality in modern settings, the third Mr. C property is an elegant nod to its nautical surroundings on the waterfront of an iconic Miami neighborhood. It offers 100 guest rooms and a top floor ballroom that serves 250 for a cocktail reception, and a flexible downstairs space for up to 750 guests. Travelers can procure breakfast, lunch and dinner at Bellini Restaurant and Bar, extending the same inspired takes on Italian fare as their Seaport, New York location.
