Loews Vanderbilt Hotel begins extensive renovation
Multi-million dollar remodel to feature new Mason’s restaurant and Mason Bar
NASHVILLE (November 5, 2012) – Travelers and foodies alike will have a new location to visit in Nashville with the renovation of Loews Vanderbilt Hotel and launch of its new restaurant, Mason’s, and bar, Mason Bar.
The extensive renovation includes the new restaurant and bar, a complete redesign of the lobby, remodeled corridors, and new guest and public bathrooms. Construction begins November 26 and is scheduled to wrap up in May 2013.
Using local music, fashion and food as design inspiration, hotel features and finishes will be a sleek, modern style with vintage inspiration featuring stone, metal and rich, dark woods.
Mason’s, aptly named for the popular Mason jars used in Southern canning, is slated to be a Southern brasserie-style restaurant combining traditional Southern dishes with classical French techniques to create a uniquely local dining experience. Mason Bar, a rustic, public house-style bar featuring a Mason jar chandelier and nine-screen media wall, will offer live music and an extensive selection of beers, wines and spirits, some served straight from a Mason jar.
“Loews Vanderbilt Hotel is Tennessee’s only AAA Four Diamond rated hotel that has maintained that rating for more than 27 consecutive years, and we intend to keep up that rating by matching this invigorating contemporary look with our impeccable service,” said Tom Negri, Managing Director of Loews Vanderbilt Hotel. “With all of the new development that is bringing more people into Nashville and into our hotels and restaurants, it’s exciting that we are able to make this investment so that we can stay ahead of what’s going on in the market.”
Throughout construction, the hotel’s meeting and conference space, ballroom, fitness center will remain open. Alternative restaurant and bar locations will be available on the Mezzanine level for guests’ dining and beverage needs. A special renovation rate starting at $129 is available Nov. 26, 2012 through May 8, 2013, and includes 50 percent off of parking, including valet, free in-room internet, one complimentary movie during a stay, and a 25 percent discount on room service for dinner.
