NASHVILLE, TN – North Point Hospitality, an Atlanta-based hotel development and management company, has broken ground on the first tri-branded Marriott Hotel in the US; and unveiled an original 300-pound model of the hotel made with 63,636 LEGO bricks. The commissioned model is designed by award-winning master artist Sean Kenney.
The tri-branded $137 million, 470-room Marriott will include a 209-room AC Hotel, a 136-room Residence Inn and a 125-room SpringHill Suites. Expected to open mid-year 2018, all guests of the three hotels will have access to the full amenities within this landmark tri-branded property.
“This is an historic day for Nashville and the Marriott brand. We are excited to partner with Marriott to bring this tri-branded design to ‘booming’ Nashville,” said S. Jay Patel, President and CEO of North Point Hospitality. “Having successfully developed a dual-branded hotel in the past, the tri-branded concept was a natural progression.”
Though customers will encounter one main entrance, once inside, guests will experience three distinct hospitality brands. Hotel guests will be offered a wider variety of amenities and options to serve all their travel needs such as a larger than traditional fitness center and multiple food and beverage options not normally offered at each individual brand.
“North Point Hospitality has continuously produced first-class Marriott-branded hotels. When partnering with a development company to build the first tri-branded Marriott hotel in the country, it was evident Jay Patel and North Point Hospitality were the clear choice to bring this one-of-a-kind product into the multifaceted Nashville market. We look forward to our continued partnership with Jay and the North Point Hospitality team,” said Arne Sorenson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Marriott International.
