Big Cypress Lodge is the sister resort to the renowned Big Cedar Lodge – a wilderness resort named the No. 1 Midwest hotel for the second consecutive year in the 2017 Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards – in Missouri’s Ozark Mountains, also the vision of Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris. The awe-inspiring Big Cypress Lodge has similarly brought the magic of the great outdoors to the heart of Memphis since opening in 2015. Big Cypress Lodge features an elegant lobby that evokes a grand hunting lodge, 104 rustic-elegant guest rooms and suites, a spa and fitness center, five conference rooms and a patio space ideal for groups, meetings, events and celebrations.
The hotel sprawls across the second and third floors of Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid and offers interior views of the vibrant lifestyle and retail areas on the ground floor that includes a vast Cypress Swamp with 100-foot-tall replica Cypress trees, streams and aquariums with thousands of fish and even an alligator pond. The Pyramid also features the country’s tallest free-standing elevator, two restaurants including The Lookout at the top of the Pyramid that offers panoramic views through glass window walls and observation decks, the Ducks Unlimited Waterfowling Heritage Center, and dynamic activities including an archery range and spectacular underwater-themed bowling alley.
Rates at Big Cypress Lodge start from $199.
