A Nashville hotelier has paid $4.8 million for the 172-room Magnuson Hotel Downtown North Nashville, with plans to rebrand it as the Quality Inn Downtown Nashville, reports The Tennessean.

The buyer, Sam Zaveri, plans to spend an additional $2 million on renovations, including upgrades to the rooms, lobby, ballrooms and banquet rooms.

"Trinity Lane is a down market right now, but its got lot of room to grow as Nashville's downtown grows," he said about the general location of the hotel.
