JW Marriott Nashville is looking ahead to its opening in 2018 and focusing on attracting the ever-growing bleisure class of travelers: business travelers who extend their work trips for leisure traveling.

The hotel will feature Michelin-star chef Michael Mina's first restaurant on the property, as well as clean lines and modern furniture that blend a clean aesthetic with the culture and charm of Nashville, which can be viewed from the floor-to-ceiling windows. With two ballrooms, two permanent boardrooms, 16 meeting rooms and an event-hub with 24-hour access, the property is perfectly situated for a variety of events. Guests can easily transition from their conferences to Nashville life since the hotel is just a short distance from The Gulch, 12 South, Music Row and next door to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

“On behalf of the entire JW Marriott Nashville team, we are eagerly awaiting opening day and the first opportunity to welcome both business and leisure guests through our doors,” says Philip Goldfarb, corporate representative. “Nashville is steeped in culture and booming with inventive new neighborhoods, shops and restaurants – it is the perfect city to explore on your own or with a group.”

The work-in-progress hotel will accommodate this popular type of traveler with 533 guest rooms, state-of-the-art meeting and event spaces, quality dining options and a convenient location. Forty-three percent of business trips last year fell into the bleisure category, and this class of travelers will appreciate amenities like the full-service spa and salon, rooftop pool, fitness center and more that the JW Marriott Nashville will offer alongside its quality meeting spaces.

For more than 125 years, the historic Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee has been celebrating local art. Each year, it hosts an Artist-in-Residence and a Narrator-in-Residence art program. The artists stay at the hotel to work on their respective artforms and interact with guests.

Family-owned and -operated catering brand and event venue, Grateful Palate Catering & Events, recently underwent an interior renovation, which was inspired by the success of the recently launched second floor private event space at its sister property Shooters Waterfront. 

 

Discover Puerto Rico, the island’s first-ever Destination Marketing Organization (DMO), has reported that in the past year, the island had its highest revenue and visitors numbers of all time. This is largely due to the DMO’s campaign “CoverTheProgress,” which encourages media outlets to highlight Puerto Rico’s progress and beauty, rather than the devastation.
