TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - A boutique hotel may be coming to downtown Tupelo.
A boutique hotel is a smaller hotel aimed to provide a unique setting, customer service and personality.
The Tupelo Redevelopment Agency (TRA), the City of Tupelo and the Thrash Group, LLC are in discussion to build the boutique hotel.
According to the city, all three parties have agreed upon a purchase contract for the greenfield site at the southwest corner of East Main Street and Monaghan Street.
The site is located between Fairpark and Mugshots Grill & Bar.
The proposed Tupelo boutique hotel is a 4-story, 80-room hotel which will include a restaurant concept.
The Thrash Group, a Hattiesburg-based hotel development group, will spend the next three months conducting studies on the site and market before making a final decision on moving forward with the project.
"TRA has been working for the past five years on trying to recruit a boutique hotel, and we think we have found a great partner in the Thrash group for this development," said Reed Hillen, TRA chairman.
