The country’s first tri-brand Marriott Hotel is scheduled to open in downtown Nashville in January 2019. The 470-room SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn and AC Hotels hybrid will have more than 9,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 21st floor ballroom with 16-foor floor-to-ceiling windows, five different meeting rooms, an outdoor terrace and a spacious pre-function area.

The hotel’s meeting spaces can accommodate up to 355 guests banquet-style and up to 465 guests for a reception. Amenities include a private outdoor rooftop pool and whirlpools, an indoor/outdoor pool bar, six F&B options, fire pits and cabanas. The Country Music Hall of Fame, Nissan Stadium, the Nashville Music City Center, Bridgestone Arena, Ryman Auditorium, and Lower Broadway are all within walking distance of the hotel.

Point Lookout Resort & Conference Center, located in Northport, Maine, will be managed by Olympia Hotel Management and owned by Deep Creek Grazing Association. Based in Portland, Olympia Hotel Management will be adding the 387-acre property overlooking Penobscot Bay to its list of award-winning hotels that it currently manages.

 

In the fall of 2018, Florida International University’s Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management partnered with Fontainebleau Miami Beach to launch their Program On Demand, an innovative program created to offer university students a glimpse into working in the meetings and events industry.
