Meetings and Conventions: Nashville to Get Country’s First Tri-Branded Marriott Hotel

By | Marriott, Opening | No Comments

Ever since the May 2013 opening of Music City Center, Nashville has become a hotbed of ambitious hotel development that shows no signs of slowing. Every hotel brand, it seems, has put this long-time bastion of country music on its “must plant a flag” list, and that has caused the city’s downtown skyline to change dramatically.

Adding frenzy to the development scene was the news this past May that the National Football League had selected Nashville as host city for the 2019 National Football League Draft, a multi-day media spectacle that is expected to draw 20,000 fans and a combined 45.4 million television and online viewers across four networks.

According to Music City, the city’s destination marketing arm, 18 new hotels have opened in the last two years alone, adding 2,691 rooms to the city’s inventory; and another 10 properties, representing 1,504 additional rooms, are in the pipeline.

While glittering new additions like the 533-room JW Marriott Nashville, which opened in July, and the 350-room W Nashville, scheduled to debut in 2020, might have stolen the development spotlight, that’s about to change. Why? Because, the city is about to get a tri-branded Marriott hotel, the first in the country.
