Hotel Concept

Maryville, Tennessee

JAI was tasked by a development group to reimagine the former Ruby Tuesday headquarters building, prominent in downtown Maryville, into a 52-room boutique hotel.

Based on the building’s roots as a bank, the exterior design was inspired by the original Art Deco lobby, with a mid-century materials palette of black steel, white marble, wood accents and glass. A cantilevered valet canopy creates the main entry, and the corner of the building opens to the street for views into and out of a new lobby and café. The lobby opens to a spa and fitness center level below, and the hotel bar and restaurant opens to an exterior terrace. On the rooftop, a sixth-floor bar and event space were planned to take advantage of the 360-degree views.
