Set to open next year, JW Marriott Nashville will soon become a favorite for meeting and event planners. Located right next to Nashville’s International Airport and across the street from Music City Center, the 533-key hotel will boast 50,000 square feet of flexible event space equipped with state of the art audio visual and wireless technology, allowing guests to make the most of any meeting or special occasion.

“We are looking forward to expanding the Turnberry Associates portfolio in Nashville and have recognized the demand for a luxury hotel product that can flawlessly execute corporate or social functions in dynamic cities guests are inspired to explore,” says Jackie Soffer, CEO and co-chairman of Turnberry Associates. “JW Marriott Nashville’s location sets it apart from any other upscale hotels in the area, with up-and-coming neighborhood The Gulch and the must-see Music Row just minutes away.”

JW Marriott Nashville’s ballrooms provide an ideal event setting for anything from weddings, large-scale events and meetings. The ballrooms boast over 25,000 square feet of space and accommodate up to 1,200 guests. Ranging in size from 377 to 1,442 square feet, the 16 meeting rooms and two permanent boardrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows and plenty of natural lighting. Additional offerings will include an “event-hub” with 24-hour access as well as business services.

A spacious al-fresco terrace lounge on the 33rd floor as well as private dining rooms in Nashville’s first Michael Mina Restaurant, Bourbon Steak, will offer alternate areas with customizable catering options. Extra amenities include the hotel’s state-of-the-art spa, fitness center, retail outlets, complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the property, including the rooftop pool or concierge library.

“We’ve assembled a local team of seasoned and dynamic sales professionals at JW Marriott Nashville who will work closely with each guest to deliver a seamless and memorable experience,” says Silvia San Martin, director of sales & marketing at JW Marriott Nashville. “The JW Marriott brand prides itself on providing authentic, innovative luxury experiences and the highest level of service which will be complemented with Nashville’s Southern hospitality.”

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
