The 27-story Westin Nashville has opened in Nashville’s SoBro neighborhood next to Music City Center.

Designed by David Mexico Design Group and Bullock Smith and Partners, the hotel’s 453 guest rooms feature details inspired by the unique culture of Nashville. Additionally, there are three penthouse-style entertainment suites, three hospitality suites and eight executive suites each with individual characteristics.

“The Westin Nashville is going to set the bar for the city’s hospitality industry,” says Ray Waters, general manager. “Our accommodations and amenities invoke the feelings of relaxation, excitement and luxury. We hope to provide our guests with not only the service and comfort they expect but an experience they will treasure for years to come.”

The Westin Nashville has more than 20,000 square feet of event space that includes pre-function areas and 12 meeting venues. The Vanderbilt Ballroom has seating for up to 500 guests.

“Our meeting space options, in addition to our proximity to the Music City Center, makes it ideal for meeting planners and citywide conventions to utilize our space for their program needs,” says Waters. “We also look forward to hosting a variety of social events, weddings and galas for our local clientele.”

The hotel also has three unique on-site restaurants each of which offers a different taste of the city.

The widely recognized Chateau on the Lake Resort, Spa, & Convention Center of Branson, Missouri, has captured the coveted “Best of MidAmerica Award” from Meetings Today magazine. Readers of the magazine determined recipients of the award, voting on a handful of the top MidAmerica meeting sites based off of quality of meeting space, guest rooms, services and amenities, food and beverage offerings, staff, availability of technical equipment, recreational facilities and activities, and overall experience.
