Marriott International has opened its first newly built, triple-brand hotel in Nashville across from the Music City Convention Center.

Developed by Savannah, Ga.-based North Point Hospitality, the 21-story, $140-million property consists of an AC Hotels by Marriott, Residence Inn by Marriott and SpringHill Suites by Marriott.

The property’s brands encompass the leisure, business and extended-stay segments. The 209-room AC Hotel by Marriott Nashville Downtown offers a European-inspired breakfast at its AC Kitchen and the AC Lounge bar concept. The 136-suite Residence Inn Nashville Downtown/Convention Center provides fully equipped kitchens, a free grocery-delivery service, guest laundry facilities and a 24-hour marketplace. The 125-room SpringHill Suites Nashville Downtown/Convention Center guestrooms include a three-in-one sofa designed by West Elm, which is capable of converting into a daybed or trundle bed.

The hotels share amenities, with an indoor/outdoor rooftop pool located on the building’s sixth floor and a rooftop bar located on the 21st floor. The property offers more than 9,000 square feet of meeting space, 4,000 square feet of which is located on the 21st floor.

“Music City is the perfect place for Marriott to make history with its first newly built, triple-brand property,” said Eric Jacobs, chief development officer of select and extended stay brands at Marriott International. “Bringing these three differentiated brands together will help travelers find the perfect accommodation, whether they are in Nashville to explore the city’s famed honky tonks and exploding restaurant scene, complete a work assignment, attend a convention or perhaps even accommodate a large group with different needs, such as a family reunion.”

Marriott now has 98 dual-brand properties in its portfolio worldwide, with another 144 under development.

S. Jay Patel, president/CEO of North Point Hospitality, said, “By combining AC Hotels, Residence Inn and SpringHill Suites, we’re delivering a hotel with enhanced guest experiences and elevated amenities across the three brands.”
