North Point says three better than two in Nashville

North Point Hospitality Group, Atlanta, is expected to break ground later this year in Nashville, Tennessee, to develop the first ground-up, tri-branded Marriott hotel in the United States.

The US$120 million hotel project with a combined 455 rooms will be located in Nashville’s SoBro neighborhood across from the new 2.1 million square foot Music City Center.

The three brands included in the hotel will be a 204-key AC Hotel by Marriott, a 126-room Residence Inn by Marriott, and a 125-unit SpringHill Suites by Marriott. The SpringHill Suites hotel will occupy floors seven through 11 with the Residence Inn sitting atop on floors 12 through 18. The adjoining side of the building will house the AC Hotel on floors seven through 18. The ground floor of the property will offer 15,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space.

Guests staying at any of the three hotels will have access to an upscale, elevated pool and whirlpool experience with poolside beverage and food service, fitness center, and the AC Hotel’s rooftop bar and lounge on the 19th floor overlooking the Nashville skyline. Additionally, the hotel will offer 6,000 square feet of flexible, columnless meeting and banquet facilities on the 19th floor.

The general contractor anticipates approximately 700 individuals will be employed during peak construction activity. Once stabilized, the hotel will employ more than 200 full-time team members and support staff.

This will be North Point Hospitality Group’s third project in the Nashville market. This is also North Point Hospitality Group’s second multi-branded hotel. The company built the dual-branded Hilton Garden Inn/Homewood Suites Atlanta Midtown in 2012.
