Loews Vanderbilt Completes $17 Million Renovation in Nashville

In concert with the opening of the new Music City Center in downtown Nashville in May, the nearby Loews Vanderbilt Hotel has completed a $17 million renovation, it announced last week.

The 340-room hotel, which is nearly 30 years old, now sports a new restaurant and bar, a new lobby, new guest bathrooms, new designer suites and an updated patio space — all of which were redesigned to reflect modern Nashville music, food and fashion. The new lobby, for instance, features a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a Hank Williams mural wall while the new restaurant and bar includes a Mason jar chandelier, Mason jar walls and twinkling lights that mimic fireflies.

“The vibe is so cool right now in Nashville and we want to be a place where locals and travelers alike want to eat, drink, hang out and do business,” General Manager Tony Phillips said in a statement. “Everything from the new restaurant and bar to the new lobby and room updates really aligns with that vision and is creating a lot of excitement amongst our guests, our community and our team members. This completed renovation marks a new day and a new hospitality experience here at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel.”
