NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Just in time for the summer tourism season and the opening of the new Music City Center in downtown Nashville, Loews Vanderbilt Hotel has completed its $17 million renovation.
Following six months of extensive construction, the nearly 30-year-old, 340-room hotel now offers 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.
“The vibe is so cool right now in Nashville and we want to be a place where locals and travelers alike want to eat, drink, hang out and do business,” said Tony Phillips, general manager of Loews Vanderbilt Hotel. “Everything from the new restaurant and bar to the new lobby and room updates really aligns with that vision and is creating a lot of excitement amongst our guests, our community and our team members. This completed renovation marks a new day and a new hospitality experience here at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel.”
Designed by Simeone Deary Design Group, the new lobby combines modern lines with warm tones and dark woods. Design elements include a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a Hank Williams mural wall in the great room.
Mason’s and Mason Bar features 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. Guests can enjoy a sophisticated take on Southern dishes such as A Devil of an Egg and Fried Green Tomatoes while enjoying craft cocktails.
The new look continues upstairs with a complete remodel of all guestroom bathrooms including new finishes, fixtures and music-themed artistic designs, updated and brightened corridors on all 10 guestroom floors, and modernized designer suites. An updated patio and new fire pit near the front drive offers guests an outdoor escape.
