Loews Vanderbilt Hotel to undergo refurbishment

Loews Vanderbilt Hotel will be undergoing renovations starting Nov. 26. The renovation includes a complete redesign of the lobby, remodeled corridors, new guest and public bathrooms and the new Mason’s restaurant and Mason Bar.

The new design was created by luxury hotel and restaurant design firm Simeone Deary Design Group. Hotel features and finishes include a modern style with vintage inspiration; clean, museum white walls offset by heavy textures including stone, metal and rich, dark woods; and artwork and graphics inspired by the famed Hatch Show Prints.

Mason’s, named for the popular Mason jars used in Southern canning, is slated to be a Southern brasserie-style restaurant combining traditional Southern dishes with classical French techniques. Mason Bar, a public house-style bar featuring a Mason jar chandelier and nine-screen media wall, will offer live music and a selection of beers, wines and spirits, some served straight from a Mason jar.

Loews Vanderbilt Hotel’s transformation is scheduled for completion in May 2013. Throughout construction, the hotel’s meeting and conference space, ballroom, fitness center will remain open. Alternative restaurant and bar locations will be available on the Mezzanine level for guests’ dining and beverage needs.

The 340-room Loews Vanderbilt Hotel is within walking distance of Vanderbilt University, one mile from Music Row and a short 15-minute drive from Nashville International Airport (BNA). The property is one of only 73 hotels nationwide and the only one in Tennessee to achieve the AAA Four-Diamond designation for 27 consecutive years.
