NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

After more than two years of construction, the Omni Hotel in downtown Nashville is open.

The new hotel, located adjacent to the newly opened Music City Center, features approximately 800 guest rooms and 50 suites, a rooftop pool, several restaurants, a full service spa and 24-hour room service.

Following a ribbon cutting ceremony Monday morning, Mayor Karl Dean told Nashville's News 2 the new hotel "exceeded his expectations." The hotel created 650 new jobs, approximately 450 employees are residents of Davidson County.

"This hotel is beautiful and we need it. We have the people coming into the city right now who are going to fill it up.  It's going to be a huge success," said Mayor Dean.

Artwork throughout the hotel is representative of Nashville and the south.  As many as half of the artists are from Music City.

Another unique feature of the much anticipated hotel is that it is connected to the Country Music Hall of Fame.

"We are seamlessly connected on the first, second and fourth floors, and our guests will be able to register at hour hotel and literally walk through the lobby right into the shared lobby and right into the exhibits at the Country Music Hall of Fame," explained Rod Roadarmel with Omni Hotel.

The new hotel cost approximately $268 million to build. 

With group rates, rooms start at $195 and go upwards to $300.

The Omni already has 400,000 room nights on the books.
