Grand Hyatt Nashville today announced the appointment of John D’Angelo as the luxury hotel’s general manager. D’Angelo brings two decades of Hyatt experience to Nashville, having most recently served as the resort manager of the 1,800-room Grand Hyatt Baha Mar in Nassau, Bahamas.
“From the moment I arrived in Nashville, this special city has felt like home. I am constantly charmed by the enduring hospitality, history, and rich culture that runs so abundantly through this community,” said D’Angelo. “It is an honor and a privilege to lead the launch of Grand Hyatt Nashville, which will be a cornerstone of Nashville Yards, which is currently under development. I am committed to ensuring our hotel retains the authenticity and warmth that makes Music City so special for all of us, and look forward to providing an unparalleled luxury experience to our guests.”
A seasoned hotel executive, D’Angelo has more than 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry. Prior to his tenure with Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, D’Angelo helped open Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center and Hyatt Regency Trinidad, and he also served on the executive committees of Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego, Hyatt Regency Bellevue on Seattle’s Eastside, and Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa in Florida. Before launching his career in hospitality, D’Angelo was a professional pianist and touring musician.
Slated to open in fall 2020, the 24-story Grand Hyatt Nashville will feature 591 beautifully modern guest rooms, a signature restaurant, multiple bars, a rooftop lounge, a pool deck overlooking downtown, a Grand Club Lounge, and world-class spa.
