Downtown Nashville in the United States has become home to history as Marriott International opened its first hotel to feature three separate brands under one roof.
The 21-storey, USD$140 million North Point Hospitality newbuild offers business or leisure guests a choice of either the AC Hotels, Residence Inn or Springhill Suites depending on whether they’re seeking design-brand, extended stay or suite-style accommodations. The hotel’s room breakdown includes 209 rooms designed as AC Hotels, 136 Residence Inn suites and 125 separate Springhill Suites.
The pioneering concept could set a precedent as to whether a tri-branded concept could work in future developments in Australia. Marriott currently operates 98 dual-branded hotels worldwide, with another 144 under development, but no others with three brands under one roof.
Slightly delayed from its mid-2018 projected opening, the new hotel is located across from the Nashville Convention Centre. Guests can access a number of joint facilities within the building including an indoor/outdoor rooftop pool, bar and fitness centre. Dedicated meeting space and conference facilities are available on the 21st floor. Guests, especially those in extended-stay accommodations. can have their groceries delivered. A 24-hour food and beverage market is also available.
“We are incredibly proud to debut Marriott International’s first newly built triple-brand property created from the ground up in the heart of exciting downtown Nashville,” North Point Hospitality CEO S. Jay Patel commented.
