Marriott Opens First Triple-Brand Hotel

Triple-brand hotel: AC Hotel, Residence Inn, and Springhill Suites

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Marriott International today announced the opening of its first property that combines three brands under one roof. Located in downtown Nashville across from Music City Convention Center and developed by North Point Hospitality, the new-build, 21-story, $140 million property includes an AC Hotel, Residence Inn, and SpringHill Suites.

“Music City is the perfect place for Marriott to make history with its first newly built, triple-brand property,” said Eric Jacobs, Marriott’s chief development officer, select and extended stay brands. “Bringing these three differentiated brands together will help travelers find the perfect accommodation—whether they are in Nashville to explore the city’s famed honky tonks and exploding restaurant scene, complete a work assignment, attend a convention, or perhaps even accommodate a large group with different needs, such as a family reunion.”

The property is the latest in a growing number of multi-brand hotels that can cater to several customer segments at one location. Marriott now has 98 properties with two brands, with 144 more under development worldwide.

“We are incredibly proud to debut Marriott International’s first newly built triple-brand property, created from the ground up in the heart of exciting downtown Nashville,” said S. Jay Patel, president and CEO of North Point Hospitality. “By combining AC Hotels, Residence Inn, and SpringHill Suites, we’re delivering a hotel with enhanced guest experiences and elevated amenities across the three brands.”
