Omni Nashville opens ahead of schedule, budget

On Sept. 30 the Omni Nashville Hotel, adjacent to the new Music City Center, opened its doors to the public with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting celebration. The 21-story, 800-room luxury hotel, billed as “The Key to Music City,” is located in the South of Broadway district.

Omni Hotels & Resorts broke ground on the hotel a little more than two years ago. Since that time crews from Brasfield & Gorrie worked around the clock to complete construction of the hotel approximately three months ahead of schedule and on budget. Throughout the process the architectural and design teams including HKS Hill Glazier Studio and Looney and Associates ensured the property captured the distinct culture and character of Nashville in the hotel design.

According to Omni, the Omni Nashville Hotel has more than 395,000 definite room nights booked, comprised of more than 450 meetings and conventions contracted through 2024. These numbers have been achieved approximately four months ahead of schedule.
