Marriott International has begun construction on its first ever property comprising three separate brands under one roof.
Located in Nashville’s SoBro district, the L-shaped building will offer a total of 470 rooms, across the group’s AC Hotels by Marriott, Springhill Suites by Marriott and Residence Inn by Marriott brands.
The $137 million property is expected to open in mid-2018, and will feature meeting space, a large swimming pool and a fitness centre on the top floor available to all guests.
Commenting on the project Tony Capuano, Executive Vice President and Global Chief Development Officer at Marriott International said:
“Marriott continues to grow its multi-brand portfolio, as these projects offer a myriad of benefits to both our development partners and our guests.
“Developers can target multiple consumer segments while benefitting from significant construction and cost synergies. Hotel guests are offered a wider range of options to serve all of their travel needs.”
While the Nashville property is Marriott’s first tri-branded complex, the group has an established background in combining brands in single buildings, with 52 dual-branded properties in operations, and a further 84 approved and 32 under construction.
