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.

The lounge, designed by DMAC Architecture, is approximately 1,800 square feet of comfortable chairs with charging ports, betting terminals and a gaming floor. With walls covered in high definition televsions, Rivers Sportsbook allows guests to place bets on several different games rather than just focusing on one.
