Davidson to manage the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs in Tenn.

Davidson Hotels & Resorts took over management of the 300-room Franklin Marriott Cool Springs in Franklin, Tenn. Additionally, the company will operate the adjoining Cool Springs Conference Center.

The property marks the eleventh hotel Davidson will operate on behalf of private real estate funds advised by Crow Holdings Capital - Real Estate and affiliates. The adjoining Cool Springs Conference Center, owned in partnership by Williamson County and the city of Franklin, is the fifth convention or conference center Davidson operates on behalf of a municipality. The conference center contains more than 29,000 square feet of flexible event space, including the wedding-friendly Champion Ballroom, and has a ballroom capable of accommodating up to 1,900 guests.

The hotel will undergo a renovation that will improve all guestrooms and public spaces, as well as the inclusion of Marriott’s new “Great Room” lobby.
