The developers bringing Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Hotel to downtown Nashville have released a few new looks at the forthcoming hotel.
The Margaritaville Nashville Hotel, set to open in mid-2019, is one of a flurry of new lodging options crowding the streets of downtown. The hotel boom is largely centered around the SoBro neighborhood, as supply rapidly arrives to meet the demand created by Nashville's tourism boom and its expanding convention center.
The new renderings, included at the start of the slideshow with this story, include new exterior shots of the hotel. According to a news release, the hotel "will welcome travelers with a warm entryway, featuring a covered portico adorned with wood accents, tropical plants and lush greenery, murals that reflect escapism, as well as large windows opening into the hotel’s lobby."
Terrace seating at JWB Grill, a "casual-luxe dining concept," is also featured in one of the new renderings.
"When we open next year, this hotel will be the ultimate spot to kick back, relax and enjoy Southern hospitality with a Margaritaville twist," Darby Campbell, owner and president of Safe Harbor Development, the company developing the property, said in the release.
The 217-room hotel’s design is led by Nashville-based architectural firm ESa (Earl Swensson Associates), in conjunction with The Design Poole and The McBride Company. JE Dunn is leading construction.
