MMI Hotel Group, a Mississippi-based hotel management company who manages Hilton and IHG branded hotels for the Chawla family, is pleased to share that entrepreneurialism is alive and relationships still matter. Yesterday, Chawla Hotels announced Scion at West End will be the first location of the American Idea Hotel’s newest brand by Trump Hotels. The new hotel will be located in Cleveland, MS – one of several communities in the Mississippi Delta where the Chawla family owns hotels.
The first Scion Hotel by Trump Hotels is going to be in Mississippi?
Mississippi is actually the home to several firsts. Every corner of the world has its own signature music, art and literature, but Mississippi has a depth of cultural richness that few regions can rival. In addition to the artists, authors, and a long list of recipes worthy of recognition, the State of Mississippi’s significance in America’s music proved significant enough to authorize the nation’s only Grammy-sanctioned museum outside of L.A. (and we don’t mean Lower Alabama).
An official Grammy Museum in Mississippi?
An official Grammy Museum in Mississippi? Yes. Carved between miles of row crops covering the majority of the Mississippi Delta is this uniquely Southern tribute to America’s music. For years, this unique pocket of American life has produced a culture of creativity (highlighting music and food) and a focus on the innate senses of hospitality. Mississippi was tagged as “The Hospitality State” many moons ago for a reason…and it still rings true today.
We at MMI Hotel Group might be biased in this belief because we have roots in the Mississippi Delta and have been sharing this hospitality with hotel guests across the Southeast for over sixty years. It is the same commitment that die-hard corporate travelers and international tourists alike have been amazed to experience in the sights, sounds, and tastes of the traditions of society, art, music, and food that might be taken for granted elsewhere.
Congratulations to Dinesh & Suresh Chawla for thinking BIG. Their sense of hospitality obviously resonated with Donald Trump, Jr. and the Trump Hotels team. The Delta thanks you for this recognition.
