Three designers collaborate to renovate Loews Vanderbilt Hotel Nashville

Loews Vanderbilt Hotel Nashville completed its $17-million renovation. Following six months of reconstruction, the nearly 30-year-old, 340-room hotel now has the new Mason’s restaurant and Mason Bar, a new lobby, new guestroom bathrooms, new corridors, new designer suites and an updated outdoor patio space. These were said redesigned with a nod to the music, food and fashion that embody the image of Nashville.

The renovation’s architect was Rule Joy Trammel + Rubio. Interior design was by Simeone Deary Design Group. The project manager was Jonathan Nehmer + Associates. Meanwhile the contractors were Brasfield & Gorrie, and Land-Ron.

Designed by Simeone Deary Design Group, the new lobby combines modern lines with warm tones and dark woods. With design elements such as floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a Hank Williams mural wall in the great room, guests can relax fireside among seating that includes connectivity at nearly every seat for a work environment.

Mason’s and Mason Bar offer a nod to Southern design with touches such as a Mason jar chandelier suspended over the bar, Mason jar walls in the restaurant space, twinkling lights that mimic fireflies and cowhide leather chairs in the bar. There is a rustic, public house-style bar featuring a nine-screen media wall.

The new look continues upstairs with a complete remodel of all guest room bathrooms, including new finishes, fixtures and music-themed designs, updated corridors on all 10 guestroom floors and modernized designer suites with designer finishes and details. An updated patio and new fire pit near the front drive offers guests an outdoor escape.

Located in Nashville’s Midtown, Loews Vanderbilt Hotel Nashville has 340 rooms, including 14 suites, and 24,000 square feet of function space. Its Southern brasserie-style restaurant, Mason’s, offers traditional Southern dishes with a French twist, while its public house-style bar, Mason Bar, serves local beers, wines and spirits in a casual setting. The property is within walking distance of Vanderbilt University.
