Hilton Nashville Downtown Unveils New Lobby Experience

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Hilton Nashville Downtown and Turnberry Hospitality have completed a dynamic new lobby experience as part of the $32 million renovation of the all-suite, full-service hotel. Following Phase I enhancements completed in July that included a renovation of all 330 guest suites and a sophisticated new executive lounge, the hotel introduces a completely transformed grand atrium lobby and Parkview Café & Lounge, reimagined MarketStreet restaurant and an open-design business center, among other upgrades. The hotel will conclude its transformation in early 2015 when it introduces a Trattoria Il Mulino from the iconic New York-based Il Mulino restaurant brand.

“The transformation of our lobby, Parkview Café & Lounge, and MarketStreet restaurant offers a modern and lively setting in a desirable location in the heart of Nashville,” said Ray Waters, president, Turnberry Hospitality. “With the opening of Trattoria Il Mulino in early 2015, we look forward to bringing a buzzing Italian culinary experience to Nashville’s evolving dining scene as we continue to share the new Hilton Nashville Downtown with guests and the local community.”

The lobby and lounge is now a lively social environment that blends sleek elegance and hometown-inspired accents to evoke the spirit of Music City. The lobby features a modern design aesthetic with warm woods and rich finishes, including metals, marble, and granite, all inspired by the intricate details of the guitar.


New additions include a grand circular glass entrance, marble flooring accented by modern rugs, and elegant yet comfortable furnishings. A focal point of the lobby is a centerpiece screen wall that ascends 30 feet along the elevator shaft, featuring a juxtaposition of wood, metal, and open segments in a repetitive pattern to resemble piano sheet music.

The reimagined Parkview Café & Lounge centered within the grand staircase is now a vibrant social gathering space, while MarketStreet restaurant serves as an inviting breakfast area that can transform into a multifunction event space. In addition, the lobby vestibule now features an open-design business center, offering two PCs and two Mac computers with high-speed internet access along with printer.
