The Joseph Hotel, 21 stories, 232 ft., 297 rooms, 380-space garage, $140 million

Recommended Posts

I know when this project was first announced it was going to be a five star hotel. Is that still the case? If so that will give us three 5 star hotels? 

The Hermitage, Four Seasons and The Joseph? Wonder how many cities in our country have three or more 5 star hotels

I'm still waiting for the 3 story downtown Motel 6!!

Nashville is kind of like the Hollywood of Music. You would think Nashville would already have high end shopping/restaurants and multiple 5 star hotels. But we don't. And that is why many stars do not make Nashville their home and why we hear shopping stories from Atlanta

I'm sure there are many, many cities with that many "five star hotels" if these days a "five star hotel" is merely any hotel that calls itself a "five star hotel" before they even exist.  That seems to be a trend these days, but the term "five star hotel" is an actual rating given upon review to a select few properties by the Mobil (now Forbes) Travel Guide.  Here is their official 2019 list of global four and five star dining and lodging properties: https://www.forbestravelguide.com/award-winners and as you can see, the only Nashville lodgings that have won a high rating are the Hutton Hotel which has a four star rating, and The Hermitage Hotel which does indeed have an official five star rating as you correctly stated, and it is one of a select few.  In any case, I'm not trying to come down on you @subkyle.  It's an easy thing to get tripped up by with all the false claims being made by properties all over.  And I'm not saying The Joseph or Four Seasons or some other property won't make future lists.  I'm just making the point that this particular rating system is something used  by a specific travel guide company, and the ratings are given out only after they have reviewed an establishment, and not something the establishment determines on their own, despite all the claims to the contrary... self appointed "Seven star" Burj al Arab I'm looking at you!  lol

Thanks for the link bnabreaker! I’m well aware that there is an actual service that rates hotels and gives them a certain amount of stars. Im assuming that the two new hotels will follow through with creating all the necessary amenities to achieve a five star rating. I guess my point is that a city of our size (Potentially) having 3 5-star hotels would be somewhat rare.
