Omni Nashville Hotel opened its doors in September 2013. The 21-story, 800-room hotel, billed as “The Key to Music City,” is connected to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and adjacent to Music City Center. Designed to be a reflection of the city’s music culture, the property incorporates natural materials, exposed steel and regional limestone. Guest rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, LCD HDTVs, workstations and bathrooms with granite countertops, walk-in showers and bath tubs. Five dining and entertainment venues are on-site, including a steakhouse, a live music space and outdoor dining options. There is also a fitness center and a spa. Planners can take advantage of the full-service business center or relax on the rooftop pool deck with views of downtown Nashville. “It was important that the Omni Nashville truly embody the raw and honest character of the city,” says Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “Everything from the materials we used to the food we serve to the art we display is reflective of local cultural sensibilities.”
More than 80,000 square feet of meeting space is available at the hotel, including 49,000 square feet of pre-function space, two ballrooms that are divisible into multiple sections, seven additional meeting rooms and 21 breakout rooms. Guests have access to 1.2 million square feet of meeting and exhibit space at Music City Center, which opened in May 2013. The Omni is integrated with an expansion of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on three levels. The hall of fame and museum is undergoing an expansion that will more than double its size, which includes a terrace that will allow visitors walk to the Omni’s rooftop area.
