JW Marriott Nashville transforms the Nashville Skyline
Turnberry Associates and Marriott International today announced the Grand Opening of JW Marriott Nashville, ideally situated steps from Music City’s most treasured landmarks. The striking, 33-story glass tower transforms the iconic Nashville skyline and ushers in a new chapter for luxury hospitality and sophistication in one of the South’s most dynamic and storied destinations. “We are beyond excited and proud to welcome JW Marriott Nashville to our vibrant city. The work that the Turnberry and Marriott teams have done truly signifies a turning point for Nashville in the luxury space, and we look forward to welcoming visitors from all over the globe to our beloved city to enjoy a true taste of Southern hospitality,” said David Briley, Mayor of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County.
JW Marriott Nashville features 533 spacious guestrooms including 37 luxurious suites, a rooftop pool, a full-service Spa by JW, over 50,000 square feet of indoor event space, a 13,000-square foot outdoor event lawn as well as renowned chef and restaurateur Michael Mina’s first Nashville outpost of Bourbon Steak. The modern glass tower, designed by internationally celebrated architecture firm Arquitectonica, offers unprecedented views and draws inspiration from the nearby Cumberland River and its symbolic place in the city’s history. The contemporary interiors, led by award-winning design firm Stonehill Taylor, exude a masculine aesthetic with rich color schemes and subtle nods to the city’s industrial past.
“We are thrilled to officially introduce JW Marriott Nashville as a tribute to Music City’s rich history and to provide a highly individualized, luxury experience for our guests, the likes of which have not yet been seen in Music City,” said Lukus Kindlesparker, General Manager, JW Marriott Nashville. “JW Marriott Nashville is truly in a league of its own, and we look forward to offering an unmistakably authentic Nashville experience through our thoughtfully designed guestrooms, innovative food and beverage and downtown Nashville’s largest spa.”
JW Marriott Nashville masterfully combines modern luxuries with subtle yet intentional nods to the city’s unique history. Each expansive guestroom incorporates pale wood paneling with pops of deep earth tones and contemporary bronze finishes. Tailored lines and custom carpet featuring an eye-catching geometric design and modern furniture guide the eye to floor-to-ceiling windows, which reveal unparalleled views of the city’s best entertainment attractions. The residential style and intuitive layout of the rooms immediately exude the feeling of home, all the while offering the approachable luxury of a JW Marriott experience.
“At JW Marriott, we pride ourselves on offering the ultimate in luxury without pretense, with a relentless focus on intuitive service and thoughtful programming. We always strive to find new ways to offer elevated and enriching experiences to guests through original amenities and partnerships,” said Mitzi Gaskins, Vice President & Global Brand Leader, JW Marriott. “As the first luxury hotel in the downtown area, JW Marriott Nashville has gone above and beyond to incorporate local influences into a distinctly luxurious hotel experience that will allow guests to enjoy all that Nashville has to offer.”
Located on the 33rd floor with panoramic views of Nashville, the expansive rooftop lounge is the hotel’s crown jewel — attracting in-the-know locals and guests seeking exceptional service in a warmly authentic, convivial atmosphere that transitions seamlessly from sunset cocktails to late-night live music. Just as the unparalleled views offer a unique outlook on Music City, the sophisticated design and artfully crafted menus are indicative of a new perspective – one that combines a deep respect for Nashville roots with cosmopolitan panache.
Additionally, the hotel features multiple dining options designed to suit every guest’s needs. The top floor of the JW Marriott Nashville is home to award-winning chef Michael Mina’s indoor-outdoor American steakhouse, Bourbon Steak, which offers guests a timeless dining experience with a modern twist. With striking interiors conceptualized by renowned hospitality designer, Adam D. Tihany, the opening of Bourbon Steak at JW Marriott Nashville further cements the hotel as the must-visit destination in the heart of downtown. Situated on the hotel’s main level, Stompin Grounds Restaurant & Market serves as the property’s culinary ode to the city, featuring fresh, homemade dishes that are locally sourced and prepared with integrity. Stompin Grounds offers guests the option of a casual grab-and-go market as well as a three-meal modern restaurant, both of which feature inspired service and a vibrant ambiance.
Additional standout amenities include a 10,000 square-foot outdoor pool oasis and the Spa by JW. The pool’s understated elegance is complemented by a full outdoor bar where guests are invited to soak up the sun and enjoy the breathtaking Nashville sunset. Five cabanas featuring customized pool-service offerings will be available for private use to provide respite from climbing temperatures. Each evening, the pool will transform into a destination of its own, complete with a glowing stone-encased fire pit and a vibrant, upbeat lounge soundtrack to entice the senses. The spa, conceptualized by award-winning design firm Stonehill Taylor, is a 4,000-square foot sanctuary featuring five private treatment rooms. The spa will offer facials, massages, manicures and pedicures using Aromatherapy Associates products, all of which are designed to address four core benefit states – Calm, Indulge, Invigorate, and Renew.
“The JW Marriott Nashville embodies the city’s creative spirit, and Stonehill Taylor’s elegant design strikes the perfect balance with the energy of downtown Nashville,” said Jackie Soffer, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Chairman of Turnberry Associates. “There is no denying that Nashville is having a moment right now and we are excited to play a part of this dynamic city’s renaissance.”
