SHERATON GRAND NASHVILLE DOWNTOWN TOPS OFF $35 MILLION RENO, ACHIEVING ‘GRAND’ NEW STATUS IN THE HEART OF MUSIC CITY
Designer redo wins hotel coveted Sheraton Grand designation, reserved for premier Sheraton Hotels & Resorts
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 26, 2017) – Spearheaded by JRK Property Holdings, Sheraton Nashville Downtown’s extensive redesign catapults the Nashville property into the brand’s prestigious “Grand” category, one of just five in the United States with this distinction. A new interpretation of a hospitality staple in Nashville, the newly designated Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown Hotel tops off its evolution with the debut of Skye, an extraordinary penthouse event space overlooking Music City. Skye completes the property’s $35 million renovation, rounding out an all-new guest experience that includes spacious guestrooms, 30,000-square-feet of expanded meeting space, a remodeled fitness center and diverse new culinary offerings.
Marrying luxury with southern comfort, Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown towers 28 stories over the city with an artfully transformed guest experience. The unprecedented renovation was designed by the highly celebrated, New York-based designer Anna Busta – the mastermind also behind W South Beach and the Viceroy, along with numerous other leading hotels and luxury residences throughout the world.
Formerly known as Pinnacle, Skye is set to remain one of the most sought after rooftops in Nashville with an unparalleled 360-degree view of downtown. Serving as a centerpiece within Skye’s inimitable atmosphere sits tank full of 150 jellyfish, accentuating the artfully mastered details found throughout the hotel. The brand new lobby is a focal point of the hotel, welcoming guests as soon as they step foot inside, with a lavish 25-story hand-blown glass chandelier, a floating wooden staircase, terrazzo tile, and plush custom seating areas. The fabulously located hotel has also reinvented its food and beverage programming, tapping into the local flavors of Tennessee with Library Bar, featuring down home hospitality and southern sophistication with Chef inspired bites and an impressive collection of more than 50 varietals of bourbon, and Broadway Kitchen, with casual comfort cuisine in a modern setting.
At the forefront of meetings and events in Nashville, Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown also features more than 30,000-square-feet of transformed events space, creating a world class destination meetings and events experience. The function spaces include the updated Platinum Ballroom and the signature Legislative Terrace, which features a beautiful atrium ceiling.
“JRK is proud to have Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown at the forefront of the widely esteemed Sheraton Grand category,” said Jim Lippman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of JRK Property Holdings. “We have invested significantly in both the physical design as well as the guest experience to dramatically shift the perception of Sheraton with today’s modern traveler.”
Following this large-scale renovation of Sheraton Nashville Downtown, the hotel has been designated the revered “Grand” title, becoming one of just five Sheraton Grand properties in the United States, and less than 40 across the globe. Located in the world’s most sought-after destinations, Sheraton Grand hotels are marked by sophisticated design, iconic restaurant concepts, innovative meetings spaces, and best-in-class service. Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown joins the impressive repertoire of its sister properties in major markets such as Los Angeles, Melbourne, Stockholm, Chicago and Singapore.
“This year Sheraton is celebrating our 80th anniversary. Being Marriott International’s most global brand with nearly 450 hotels across 73 countries, we are firmly committed to keeping Sheraton evolving to better match guest expectations for the brand around the world,” said Brian McGuinness, Senior Vice President and Global Brand Leader for Sheraton, Marriott Hotels and Delta Hotels. “The Sheraton Grand designation highlights our standout hotels in terms of exceptional product, service and guest experience, and we couldn’t be more excited to award the Sheraton Nashville Downtown with this exemplary designation.”
In the heart of the Music City and just steps away from the city’s famous entertainment district and emerging food scene, Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown is a sophisticated retreat, welcoming tourists, meetings groups, and weddings, and offering an unparalleled experience, living up to its “Grand” status.
