STAMFORD, CT—Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.’s Element brand will debut in Nashville at oneC1TY, the health and mindful living focused community west of downtown, in 2018. Owned by an affiliate of Cambridge Holdings, Element Nashville West End will feature 169 light-filled rooms.
“We look forward to introducing our eco-incubator Element brand to Nashville’s vibrant West End,” said Brian McGuinness, SVP of specialty select brands for Starwood. “On track to more than double its global portfolio in the next three years, Element offers travelers a bright, energizing environment, great design and everything they need for smart, sustainable living.”
Located at the entry to oneC1TY Nashville off the 28th/31st Avenue Connector, Element Nashville West End will serve as a hub of activity, according to Starwood, including ground-floor retail as well as an anticipated restaurant that will anchor the first floor facing the Community Table, oneC1TY’s central dining experience. The hotel is close to Vanderbilt University, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Centennial Park, HCA, the Country Music Hall of Fame and the nightclubs and entertainment venues downtown and on Music Row.
“Nashville, and oneC1TY in particular, is a terrific fit for the eco-savvy Element brand, and we expect this new hotel will resonate with visitors to Music City,” said Allison Reid, SVP of North America development, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. “Both stylish and sustainable, Element is experiencing strong demand among owners and developers in pursuit of a strong global brand with a proven record of success.”
“Element Nashville West End will offer visitors a winning combination of smart design and an unbeatable location, as well as complement oneC1TY and Cambridge’s mission to make mindful, healthy living easy,” said Roman Bogoslavsky, Cambridge’s chief investment officer. “We believe travelers deserve more than a place to stay. They need a place to thrive, where they can start every day fresh, focused and alive.”
