NASHVILLE, Tenn.—The Omni Nashville Hotel opened its doors to the public with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting celebration on Sept. 30. Governor Bill Haslam and the First Lady Crissy Haslam, Mayor Karl Dean, members from the Metro Government of Nashville and Davidson County, leaders from Music City Center, Nashville Convention Center Authority, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp., and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum joined Omni Hotels & Resorts executives for the event.
“Nashville is establishing itself as one of the preeminent leisure and convention destinations in the country – the level of interest and enthusiasm in The Music City is unprecedented,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “We are truly honored to be part of this important milestone in the development of Nashville’s future.”
Omni Hotels & Resorts broke ground on the 21-story, 800-room luxury hotel a little more than two years ago. Since that time, crews from Brasfield & Gorrie worked around the clock to complete construction of the hotel approximately three months ahead of schedule and on-budget. Throughout the process, the architectural and design teams including HKS Hill Glazier Studio and Looney and Associates ensured that the property captured the distinct culture and character of Nashville in the hotel design.
“I welcome the Omni Nashville Hotel as our newest resident, and I thank them for their investment in Nashville,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “This project was a great public-private partnership that will have an enormous economic impact on our city for years to come. This beautiful hotel, along with the Music City Center and the expansion at the Country Music Hall of Fame, add even more energy to our vibrant downtown and SoBro district.”
The hotel offers numerous dining options, a Mokara Spa, a fourth-floor pool deck, and a retail venue featuring items from local establishments.
To date, the Omni Nashville Hotel has more than 395,000 definite room nights booked, comprised of more than 450 meetings and conventions contracted through 2024. These numbers have been achieved approximately four months ahead of schedule.
