Cambria Hotel & Suites debuts in the Music Capital of the World
On March 29, the Cambria brand celebrated the grand opening of their new Cambria Hotel & Suites at 118 8th Ave, located in the heart of Nashville’s SoBro District. It was a celebration filled with familiar sounds of live country music, fire dancing acrobats, and free flowing libations.
Guests were welcomed by Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders and enjoyed the evening at the hotel’s True Music Room Bar and roof top pool deck, with performances by the winner of The Voice, Cassadee Pope, and songs by local band Nashville Yacht Club.
Speakers at the event included Senior Vice President of Upscale Brands for Choice Janis Cannon, and President and CEO of Fillmore Capital Partners Ron Silva, who expressed their excitement about the Cambria brand’s arrival in Nashville and robust growth across the United States.
“Celebrating the Cambria Hotel Nashville, located at the epicenter of the City and created for the design literate, experience-hungry traveler, is a fantastic way to highlight the brand’s continued expansion into major markets across the country. Local authenticity is the essence of the Cambria Hotels brand and this property really delivers for the modern traveler through multiple touchpoints – design, décor, food and beverage and, of course, service,” said Cannon. “We’re happy to have once again teamed up with Fillmore Capital Partners and Fillmore Hospitality for this brand defining project.”
Designed by H/S Architects, with interior design by Forrest Perkins, the 255-room upscale hotel is considered the worlds largest Cambria Hotel & Suites. The design is a subtle nod to the historic Nashville architecture and the previously industrial nature of the site. The base of the building is clad in traditional brick and steel-framed doors and windows. Above the podium, the design takes on a more contemporary and distinctive look with metal panel and terra cotta cladding and dynamic lighting that helps define the building on the rapidly changing Nashville skyline.
The hotel began construction in early 2016 and was recently completed in January 2018. Integra Construction was the contractor for the project. Consultants include Barge Design Solutions (Civil), Morphy Makofsky, Inc. (Structural), and Salas O’Brien (MEP).
