Is that not Walt Disney World's entire business model toward their hospitality offerings ...taken to another level of course?

Touché :lol:

Neither are cities I'd want Nashville to model itself after, but they are fun to visit. I guess we've got to cater to all of these tourists somehow.

This isn't bad. Everything we get can't be a Ritz (our tourist base doesn't demand it).  The other boutique hotels will certainly provide the panache and sparkle that some people want to see and experience so we should be okay. This one might actually be fun. I'm still hoping for a big Hard Rock Hotel, it is Music City after all. Of course I'd take a Fairmont, too!

Ooh - that’s a nice development. I wonder if they’ll be rental pooled with the hotel rooms or people might actually live there? I have to admit that I’d love daily maid service (which you have to buy in such a scenario).

I had heard that 'Little Richard' lived in the top floor of the Hilton next to the arena.  Of course, Minnesota Fats lived in the Hermitage Hotel so I guess it's a thing for celebs to meet guests and get a room. Maybe that's what they are going for.

Not many details...just adding 52 timeshare condos. Repeats the Starbucks, JWB steakhouse and XM Station in the 1st floor.

I didn't know about the XM Station. Are they hosting one of the SiriusXM stations from the hotel?

Pretty sure Little Richard had a place in the "Riot Hyatt" on Sunset in LA.  Both times I stayed there, I ran into him in the lobby.

Hmmm, now does that brand slot between the Grand and the flagship Regency?

Haha!  Probably! :D  That's just what the locals called it.  It was definitely a "rockstar" type of hotel.  Here's a little history on where the monicker came from:

That is interesting about Little Richard.  The one time I ran into him in Nashville was at the downtown Hilton.

He was at St. Thomas Hospital the same time my Mother was there a year or so ago, so he had some connection with Nashville. You never know who you'll run into in Nashville.

I thought he had a place in Murfreesboro, seriously.

Try going into your bathroom and turn off the lights. Say "I'm not afraid of Taylor Swift" three times. You still won't meet her, but she'll write a song about how she doesn't like you on her next album.

Why does the rendering show 15 stories.

Jimmy Buffett was wasted away in Margaritaville when updating rendering.

Maybe they’ll just go for it and add a few floors. You’ll never know if anyone is actually paying attention until you try it, right? :ph34r:
