NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – The need for more hotel rooms in Nashville is increasing as the city enters the transition phase of welcoming more tourists to Music City.
As of 2019, more than 20 Davidson County hotels have been under construction. Even during the pandemic, more than a dozen openings to the public, and even more, are on the way.
This Friday, The Gallatin Hotel opens in East Nashville. The old church converted into a hotel will be the newest addition to Gallatin Pike.
“I can’t believe this neighborhood has grown so fast,” said Manny Hernandez, who has worked at the Gallatin hotel for several months. “A few years ago, East Nashville wasn’t like that. It is safe now.
This week, the developers announced that another luxury hotel is coming downtown. The Ritz Carlton will be the anchor for a new development at the Korean Veterans Roundabout and the 8th.
A developer has announced plans to build a $ 540 million full-service Ritz-Carlton hotel, to sell condominiums, apartments for rent and a signature restaurant in downtown Nashville, according to a press release.
Now that people are moving back and traveling, more and more people are staying in hotels in Nashville. But due to the influx of tourists, some have struggled to find rooms available at a reasonable price.
“It was really difficult because the rooms are booked faster. And before, seeing how it was a year ago, it was a bit difficult, ”said Madeline Agosteo, who is visiting Nashville for the first time from Florida.
However, others, like Lisa Sunday from New Jersey, had no problem.
“It wasn’t difficult at all. You just go online and book your hotel, and they had a lot of rooms, ”Sunday said. “The hotel is great, nice, quiet and clean. The price is great.
According to the Nashville Convention and Visitor’s Corporation, more than 15 hotels are in the development and final planning stages in Davison County over the next three years.
