ROCKVILLE, MD—Choice Hotels International, Fillmore Capital Partners and Fillmore Hospitality recently broke ground on the new Cambria Hotel & Suites in Nashville, TN. Located at 8th Ave. and McGavock St. in Nashville’s SoBro (South of Broadway) neighborhood, the 255-room Cambria Nashville is slated to open in early 2018.
At an event to commemorate the groundbreaking, brand representatives, local dignitaries and guests celebrated with brunch and remarks at the site of the new hotel. Featured speakers included Steve Joyce, president and CEO of Choice Hotels and Ron Silva, president and CEO of Fillmore Capital Partners.
According to Choice Hotels, Nashville has seen an increase in visitors in recent years, with more than 11.6 million people traveling through the Nashville International Airport in 2015; this surge in tourism has caused the number of hotel rooms sold in the city to surpass year-over-year growth for more than 50 straight months.
“The hotel demand in Nashville is at an all-time high, and we look forward to meeting this demand by bringing 255 new hotel rooms to business and leisure travelers visiting the Nashville area,” said Joyce. “The Cambria Hotel & Suites Nashville is once again an opportunity for Choice Hotels to partner with Fillmore, who has been an exceptional partner in bringing the Cambria brand to urban markets across the country, including Los Angeles and New Orleans.”
The site is near Music City Center, Bridgestone Arena, Broad St. and Nissan Stadium.
The Cambria Hotel & Suites Nashville will feature amenities such as a 9,400-sq.-ft. restaurant with a stage for live performances; a rooftop pool; and a barista bar. This property will also include more than 5,000 sq. ft. of meeting space with AV capabilities for group meetings, banquets and conferences.
