Cambria Hotel Nashville Airport Grand Opening: Next to BNA
Cambria Hotels’ second location in Nashville, the Cambria Hotel Nashville Airport, officially opened on Thursday, April 21.
“Thank you for celebrating this auspicious day with us,” said Jay Patel, CEO of hotel ownership and management company Athena Hospitality Group. “Several years ago I had a vision to develop an upscale boutique hotel in the Nashville market, and I spent a lot of time researching the perfect fit. Needless to say, the Cambria Hotel & Suites suited us perfectly.
The Cambria Hotel Nashville Airport is an upscale property, similar to the Cambria Hotel Nashville Downtown in SoBro, with a convenient position just about six minutes from BNA and 15 minutes from downtown. It is a modern building with four floors and 130 rooms. From a design perspective, a fashionable approach has been taken to capture the advantage of Music City. For example, there’s a guitar-shaped outdoor pool next to cabanas with a fire pit. The Hangar Bar + Kitchen, an upscale restaurant specializing in a blend of Asian and Nashville-inspired cuisine, will serve as the resident restaurant and bar at Cambria Hotel Nashville Airport.
The opening event featured entertainment from the Tennessee Titans cheerleaders, performances by local singer-songwriters such as Jessie Clements, bites from Hangar Bar + Kitchen with Executive Chef Steve Townsend, cocktails created by talented Chef Steve alongside his team of experts, a check presentation for a generous donation to the local Ronald McDonald House and a long-awaited ribbon cutting.
Mayor John Cooper was a guest speaker during the hotel’s debut. The Mayor presented key statistics from two reports regarding Nashville’s growth and how the hospitality industry is contributing to it: “The second report is the annual assessment of cities and their outlook by the Urban Land Institute, and in that, Nashville is at the top of the supernova category among all US cities. ULI found that our combination of sectors – i.e. healthcare, academia, technology, hospitality and music – provides us with the building blocks for the greatest success of the 21st century.
Additionally, Mayor Cooper revealed there were 2,100 more rooms slated to open in the city this year alone, so, “It’s safe to say we’re back.” The mayor continued, “It’s an industrial city, and that’s part of our industry. We need to make sure it works and works great.
The mayor is grateful to the team at the Cambria Hotel Nashville Airport, which now has the opportunity to provide a second home for those traveling from out of town. , loved – live a unique experience for us to be everyone’s favorite city.”
