Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide will soon open The Westin Jackson in Mississippi. The newly constructed Westin Jackson will offer nine floors with 205 luxurious rooms and suites, 12,000 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space and all of The Westin brand’s signature services and amenities. The $60-million public-private development is positioned to boost travel and tourism in downtown Jackson.
Opening in early 2017, The Westin Jackson will feature a modern bistro and wine bar, in addition to the brand’s signature WestinWORKOUT® fitness studio with an indoor pool. The hotel will also offer a resort-like spa with over 6,000 square feet of relaxation space, including seven treatment rooms and an outdoor whirlpool deck.
“After six years of conception and planning, we are very proud to celebrate this milestone” says Joseph Simpson, Managing Partner for Capital Hotel Associates. “The Westin Jackson will be the catalyst for future growth and projects here in downtown Jackson.”
Marking the brand’s debut in Mississippi, also known as the birthplace of blues music, The Westin Jackson will be ideally located in the heart of downtown Jackson and within walking distance of the Mississippi Museum of Art, Federal Courthouse, Planetarium and Thalia Mara Hall, the historic music and arts theatre. Also within one block from the hotel, the Jackson Convention Complex features over 300,000 square feet of flexible meeting and exhibit space for convention attendees.
