MCLEAN, Va. and NASHVILLE, Tenn., – Hilton proudly announces the opening of the largest Embassy Suites by Hilton hotel in the U.S., Embassy Suites by Hilton Nashville Downtown. The spacious 506-key all-suites hotel, situated adjacent to Music City Convention Center, is a destination for both business and leisure guests to meet, gather and celebrate their next big event.

The new-build, 30-story hotel extends high into Nashville’s skyline, offering breathtaking views from all angles and is within steps of the city’s top attractions. The amenity-filled property boasts the city’s highest rooftop restaurant and bar, veranda and more than 32,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space outfitted with state-of-the-art technology.

“Nashville is one of the hottest leisure and convention destinations to visit right now, and we’re excited for Embassy Suites by Hilton Nashville Downtown to be the newest place to stay and experience Music City,” said Bonnie Campagnuolo, brand leader, Embassy Suites by Hilton. “Beyond having an unparalleled location in the center of it all, the new hotel has been sustainably and thoughtfully created to provide a modern yet approachable space filled with sunlight and paying homage to the city with music-inspired touches.”

Embassy Suites by Hilton Nashville Downtown was developed by Fort Worth, Texas-based Crescent Real Estate and is owned in partnership by a controlled affiliate of Starwood Capital Group and Crescent Real Estate. 

“The opening of Embassy Suites by Hilton Nashville Downtown is an exciting time for Starwood Capital,” added Rob Tanenbaum, managing director, head of North American hotel asset management, Starwood Capital. “We are thrilled to be able to continue contributing to the hospitality space within this iconic city and community, with the largest Embassy Suites by Hilton in the nation.”

Sustainable and Musical Design

The purposeful architectural design of Embassy Suites by Hilton Nashville Downtown features subtle cues to Nashville’s musical roots. Born from deeply traditional regional materials, combined with modern steel and glass, the hotel bridges the historic character of the city with the newer modern architecture of the Music City Center. 

A nod to the life and spirit of the songwriting capital of the world, the exterior of the hotel includes design features such as the crown resembling the lid of a grand piano in a lifted position; the blade sign and steel structure supporting the roof feature takes the form of a large violin bow; and the front facade reflects a large sheet of music with each row of windows unique from the staff above and below.

When entering different public spaces throughout the hotel, guests will notice the porte cochere ceilings are curved, resembling musical instruments, sound waves and the Cumberland River, which bisects Nashville. At check-in, travelers will catch sight of the front desk pods shaped as musical notes and each suite of the hotel features beautiful artwork that pays homage to the city’s renowned musical history. 

Also significant are the sustainable attributes at the core of the design and development process for Embassy Suites by Hilton Nashville Downtown. The LEED-certified hotel infuses sustainable elements throughout, including its use of reclaimed wood, stone and iron. Daily operational practices continue the hotel’s commitment to sustainability and include a glass recycling program, low mercury lighting, and reduced water use programs.
