Homewood Suites by Hilton, the international brand of upscale, all-suite, extended-stay hotels, announces today the opening of its newest property in Nashville, Tenn. Joining new hotels this year in Orlando, Denver and Columbus, and future openings in Dallas, San Antonio and New York City, the Nashville debut demonstrates Homewood Suites’ strong urban development commitment and the overall demand for extended-stay hotels.
Located in the trendy Midtown/West End district, the Homewood Suites by Hilton Nashville Vanderbilt will be the brand’s fourth hotel in the Nashville metro area. The eight-story, 192-suite hotel – which greets guests with a 15-foot tall Jim LaPaso guitar sculpture, “Nashville Cats,” paying homage to all the great guitar players of Nashville – enters the market at a prime time. The destination is the second fastest hotel growth market behind New York City* and welcomed 11.8 million business and leisure visitors last year**. With its bustling country music scene, strong job market – expected to see 18 percent growth over the next five years*** - and new infrastructure such as the Music City Center, Nashville is one of the country’s fastest growing destinations.
The hotel, which will create 30 permanent jobs, is owned by TN West End Avenue, LLC, and managed by Vista Host, Inc. General Manager Cally Alumbaugh and Director of Sales Kim Lopez have been in the hotel industry for a combined 50 years.
“As a booming tourist destination that is the epicenter of country music and home to a burgeoning culinary scene, the Homewood Suites Nashville Vanderbilt will provide leisure travelers, in addition to our valued business guests, a convenient location with easy access to the best the city has to offer,” said Alumbaugh. “Beyond offering guests all-suite accommodations with fully-equipped kitchens, added value amenities such as complimentary Wi-Fi and a daily full-hot breakfast, make it easy for our guests to be at home and help the hotel stand out from other new properties in the market.”
Homewood Suites Nashville Vanderbilt offers studio, one and two-room suites, with additional guest amenities including: a full evening meal with drinks**** Monday-Thursday in the hotel’s hospitality center – the “Lodge;” 24-hour on-site pantry; complimentary grocery shopping service*****; indoor heated pool; fully-equipped fitness center; three flexible meeting rooms; and 24-hour executive business center.
The hotel, located at 2400 West End Avenue and minutes from downtown Nashville, is right next to Vanderbilt University and several local area hospitals. Guests can explore the shops, restaurants and clubs of this vibrant locale, watch the Tennessee Titans play at LP Field or learn all about the history of the Music City on a walking tour of Lower Broadway.
Homewood Suites Nashville Vanderbilt participates in Hilton HHonors®, the only hotel rewards program that offers Points & Miles® and No Blackout Dates.
