Homewood brand lands in Nashville

Homewood Suites by Hilton has opened the 113-suite Homewood Suites by
Hilton hotel in downtown Nashville.

The hotel is owned by Church Street
Lodging Associates and operated by Sun Development and Management. 

As interest and growth in downtown areas have risen drastically over the
past several years, the urban market now offers a wealth of potential
extended-stay business creating an ideal development opportunity for
Homewood Suites.  The brand has a number of properties situated in the
heart of many downtown locations, putting visitors right in the center of a
wide variety of shopping, dining and attractions.


The Homewood Suites by Hilton Nashville - Downtown is conveniently located
near shopping, restaurants, The Country Music Hall of Fame and the
Convention Center.  The building was the former Doctor’s Building opened in
1916 and inspired the book “The Doctor’s Building” by Robert Hendrick.     



To aid development in already-crowded urban areas, the brand offers a
flexible suite-type, called the “shotgun suite”, for builders who choose to
renovate older properties.  These all suite hotels offer guests the same
experience as a prototypical studio suite, but the shotgun suites are more
lateral and narrow.  This design allows developers to fit more suites into
a smaller space.  Developers are given the opportunity to arrange these
suite types to best maximize their space and to meet consumer demand.


Homewood Suites has a number of hotels located in urban areas, including
Edgewater, NJ; Indianapolis-Downtown; Baltimore - Inner Harbor;
Chicago-Downtown; and Seattle-Downtown.
