The 192-room hotel located across the street from Vanderbilt University features suites with full kitchens and living areas. The hotel is the largest in the Homewood Suites chain of hotels.
"I think the city is really excited because of the size and the quality of our hotel," director of sales Kim Lopez told News 2.
Inside the hotel there is original artwork that reflects the history of the location where the hotel was built. A Packard car dealership used to be where the hotel is now located. Pictures from that dealership are hung in the lobby with an explanation of that history.
There is also artwork from Austin-based artist Jim Lapaso in the entrance to the hotel.
The rooms are built to be a home away from home for guests. Guests have the option of booking studio suites or one and two bedroom suites.
"It's great for extended stays for family gatherings and for social events," Lopez said. "We have some unique suites on the fourth floor that have patios."
The first guests are expected to check in Tuesday afternoon. The hotel will hold its official grand opening October 29 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Nashville Mayor Karl Dean is expected to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony and after party.
The hotel is located at 2400 West End Avenue near Elliston Place.
