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.

Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino is completing the second phase of its multimillion-dollar renovation, resulting in new guest rooms, an adults-only pool and private outdoor event space. 

 

Walter Bond’s latest book, “Swim! How a Shark, a Suckerfish, and a Parasite Teach You Leadership,” Mentoring, and Next Level Success has landed itself on two top seller lists this year. Ranking No. 15 in the month of October and No. 7 in November as one of the best business books, “Swim!” is a must-read for anyone looking to achieve greatness in the corporate world.

 

Formerly known as the Blackstone Hotel, the property will reopen as the Kimpton Cottonwood Hotel in spring 2020. Located in the Blackstone District, the oldest neighborhood in Omaha, Nebraska, the lively area is home to some of the city’s best bars, restaurants and nightlife. Its new name, Kimpton Cottonwood Hotel pays tribute to the original Blackstone Hotel’s Cottonwood Room bar that housed a Cottonwood tree growing from the center of the circular bar.
