Turnberry Associates, a Miami-based real estate developer, has revealed the plans for the new JW Marriott opening in downtown Nashville in 2018. The 33-story property will be shaped like an elliptical and will be a prominent part of Nashville’s skyline at 386 feet tall.

The hotel will be located within 2 miles of Nashville’s landmarks, including: the Music City Center, The Country Music Hall of Fame, Shermerhorn Symphony Center and The Ryman Auditorium.

“I would like to express our pride in taking part in the remarkable revitalization of one of the country’s most thriving and vibrant cities,” says Jeffrey Soffer, Co-Chairman and CEO at Turnberry Associates. “We are thrilled with the plans for JW Marriott Nashville, as we feel the design and public spaces of the hotel including the roof top bar, five-star dining experience, Bourbon Steak by Michael Mina, meeting offerings and spa and fitness facilities will continue to position Nashville as a luxury destination for both leisure and business travelers.”

The 533-room hotel will be located just 10 miles from Nashville’s airport and boast 50,000 square feet of meeting and event space, two ballrooms, 16 meeting rooms and two boardrooms with high quality audio visual and wireless technology.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

Wilson Hotel Big Sky Residence Inn opened in mid-2019 and is Big Sky’s first major hotel. With a name inspired by Wilson Peak, one of the most prominent of the Spanish Peaks overlooking Big Sky, the hotel has 129 suites, 3,000 square feet of meeting space and a Town Center location just steps from shops, restaurants and nightlife.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.
