Thousands of hotel rooms are opening in downtown Nashville as the city continues to boom.
Since 2013, more than 5,000 new hotel rooms opened in Nashville.
This year alone more than 1,000 rooms have been added, many are boutique hotels trying to stand out from the others with restaurants, shops and unique amenities.
Thursday night a ribbon cutting and time capsule reveal commemorated the opening of Ellington’s Mid Way Bar and Grill at the Fairlane Hotel on the corner of Union Street and Fourth Avenue.
The restaurant on the fourth floor will officially open to the public Friday.
News 2 got a look inside the rooms at the hotel, which opened in March. The hotel stands 13 stories high and has 81 rooms.
The penthouse on the top floor is decked out with 70’s era decor and has a wraparound deck with panoramic views of downtown Nashville.
The Fairlane is just across the street from the new Bobby hotel which opened in May and has 144 rooms, as well as a rooftop bar.
Not even a block away is Noelle, which opened at the end of December. It has 224 rooms and recently opened its rooftop bar.
Also, on Fourth Avenue, Dream Hotel is expected to open in late 2018 and will offer 169 rooms.
Those rooms are tied into the more than 5,400 rooms under construction right now in Davidson County.
