With a multitude of amenities and common spaces, including garage parking, the hotel will be a standout for the entire city of Nashville. The 93 guest rooms will come in a wide array of sizes to sleep all kinds of guests, from king rooms to bunk rooms to family rooms and apartments as well as more affordable shared rooms for single travelers. The Fieldhouse Jones properties accommodate tourists in ways that typical hotels and motels cannot match and flexibility is the key to their success.
The lobby of the hotel will serve as an action-filled hub, and will be home to the front desk that will double as a café and bodega. The lobby lounge will serve as a 24-hour rec-room and communal workspace for guests and locals that flows out on one end to a semi-covered 3-season patio and on the other end a new food and beverage concept. The 6th floor rooftop will offer amazing views of the town and skyline and its 4,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor space is the first of its kind in Nashville. Instinctively designed, and divisible into smaller spaces, including a to-be-leased treetop bar, bocce court, and a grass lined cinema, the pavilion will be a creative force.

With over 13 million visitors in 2015, it has become a top 10 destination with 70 straight months of record-breaking travel growth when combining business, convention, and leisure travel.

Known initially as Music City USA for its country music heritage, Nashville is now an international hub for all types of music production and performances. From clubs to venues to festivals, music has been the driving force, but not the only factor in being designated by the New York Times as the “It City.” Nashville is favored by artists, foodies, musicians and immersive travelers. Tourists may come for the music, but they also come for the food, the arts, the creative community and the cultural scene. At the heart of that scene is East Nashville. Known as the “Hipster Mecca” of Nashville, it is revered for strong community, collaboration and creativity. From the vintage stores to the maker workshops to the farm-to-table style restaurants and markets to the renowned coffee shops and beyond, this is the location favored by artists, foodies and musicians.
