The greatly anticipated Omni Nashville Hotel “topped out” on November 16, 17 months to the day after breaking ground for the future convention hotel. The Fall 2013 opening of the 800 room hotel will add high-demand Nashville event space to the revitalized downtown area of Music City.
The ceremony included hoisting a Norwegian Pine to the top of the 21 story hotel, a tradition symbolizing appreciation and good fortune.
“This construction milestone at the Omni Nashville Hotel brings our city another step closer to the opening of one of the most distinctive convention center campuses in the country,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “The hotel, along with the new Music City Center and expanded Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, will add a new level of energy to our downtown, making Nashville an even more vibrant destination.”
Nashville Event Space
The completion of the Omni Nashville Hotel will bring over 80,000 square feet of new Nashville event space, seamlessly connected to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum®.
“There’s growing interest around Nashville, and we are eager to host meetings and conventions of all sizes as well as leisure and business travelers” said Ed Netzhammer, regional vice president for Omni Hotels & Resorts. “Since the Omni Nashville Hotel began taking reservations last August, the team has booked more than 175,000 room nights, crediting Nashville’s rapidly growing amount of meeting space, unique attractions and the work of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau for promoting Music City’s one-of-a-kind offerings.”
