What is The NEXT Major Hotel to announce pans for Nashville?

Recommended Posts

After the COVID crisis is over, I do think that other hotel chains and companies will be looking at Nashville to expand operations.

Just thought I would get this out there and see if we can get some predictions going on who will be in the running.

I do know that when the Disney (not to be confused Walt Disney) group out of Knoxville had a hotel planned at the Fairmont site they mentioned a Hard Rock Hotel for the site.

So my money is on Hard Rock. Now if they build a guitar shaped hotel like Hollywood/Ft Lauderdale is to be seen as they both are casinos I believe. The Hard Rock Hotels seem to be built in tourist heavy areas, so Nashville would be in the running I would say. They are demolishing the one that collapsed in NoLa and it is unclear if they will rebuild it.

What major brands are we missing? What will fit in Nashville?

It seems like the Hard Rock brand would be spot-on for Nashville and has been for years. The question would be location -- downtown? Maybe River North?

Build a super-tall skinny tower in Hard Rock Cafe’s parking lot.  (Probably height regulations there, though).

I think we are getting the Ritz with the M2 Development on the KVB roundabout. We are sure they are in negotiations for a Ritz for that site which will be 42 stories with Condos and a 32 story apartment tower.

With all the Japanese businesses around town, it would be cool if we had a Hotel Nikko.  There used to be one in Atlanta (Buckhead) but it's now a Grand Hyatt.  It's a long shot, as the only one in the US is in San Francisco other than some beach resorts in Hawaii.

Otherwise, I agree with the poster who said the Mandarin Oriental.  I grew up in HongKong and used to go with my mom to the bakery in the original Mandarin  for the absolutely most exquisite pastries and cakes that we'd take home for special occasions.  I would dearly love to see a Mandarin in Nashville.

As far as luxury goes, the only ones that will not have a presence after the Ritz-Carlton gets formally announced would be St. Regis, Waldorf Astoria, & Mandarin Oriental. 

My money would be on St. Regis being the most likely, but I doubt we'll see anything beyond the R-C as the market will need to swallow this big addition of luxury properties.

My question is just how well the condo sales will go for Four Seasons…and will it spur them to attempt a 2nd go at their 2nd tower?  Other than buying that small parking lot, I’m sure things could be quickly teed up to proceed if the numbers are there.

The Congress Group, who is developing the Four Seasons, has seemingly turned their attention to 2nd and Peabody. I’d imagine if something does go on that lot, it will be pretty far into the future.

Yes…I’d rather see that 2nd & Peabody first.  Will be interesting to see what the market dictates over time.  Would be nice to add the 2nd and Peabody at 618’ and then build a second Four Seasons tower at 750’. :tw_glasses:

Not a big name in the pond, but I'd love to see MGM open their Aria brand in Nashville.  I stayed in their property a few years ago in Las Vegas and it was a beautifully done property.  The suite that I was in was fantastic.  It featured  one bedroom (king), 1.5 baths and a living room.  The bedroom bath had 2 sinks, jacuzzi tub, large walk-in shower and a separate water closet with an automated toilet with a built in bidet.  All of the curtains in the suite could be controlled by remote control.  You could also control the temperature, televisions (2) and lighting from the remote.   The views were also fantastic, as one would expect from a corner suite on the 52nd floor.  When I stayed there the hotel had a AAA 5-Diamond status.  If they've maintained the level of service we received and the attention given to comfort, cleanliness and conveniences of their suites, I suspect they still.
