(CLEVELAND, June 23, 2016) – Vantage Hotels’ Lexington® brand has entered Mississippi for the first time with the addition of a 51-room property in Byram, a suburb of the state capital of Jackson.
The Lexington Inn & Suites, which is expected to go live with the brand in October, features a heated indoor pool, exercise room, guest laundry facility, business center and meeting space. The hotel’s free hot breakfast offers eggs, waffles and plenty of healthy options. All guestrooms include a microwave and refrigerator, while several have a whirlpool and sofa sleeper.
Known as the “City with Soul,” Jackson is an exciting, attractive city at the very heart of the Deep South with unique, authentic festivals; an internationally renowned ballet; and great museums, music and restaurants. The hotel is conveniently located off I-55, near numerous popular attractions such as Byram Swinging Bridge, the Jackson Convention Complex, Jackson Dragway Park, and Jackson State University.
“We are excited to be expanding the Lexington brand in the great state of Mississippi and look forward to working with the owners to help take the hotel to the next level,” said Mark Williams, Group President of Vantage’s Upscale Brands.
