Omni Hotels & Resorts has broken ground on the $250m Omni Nashville Hotel, which is to open in late 2013 in Nashville, US.
The 21-storey hotel will be located across from the new Music City Center and will be integrated with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
The 800-room property will share meeting and event spaces, and will add retail units, restaurants and entertainment venues along 5th Avenue.
The hotel will feature an urban pool deck, a fitness centre and a spa.
The project is being privately financed by Omni Hotels & Resorts and is expected to achieve LEED Silver certification.
