The TownePlace Suites by Marriott will be Chartwell’s third hotel in the Brentwood market. The hotel will provide 119 total rooms and suites to the local area.

Chartwell’s TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Murfreesboro is the only hotel approved for the Clari Park mixed-use development. The hotel is located on Medical Center Parkway with easy access to St. Thomas Hospital and offers 120 guestrooms with full kitchens, outdoor community patios with grills, free Wi-Fi, on-site laundry, upscale fitness center, outdoor pool, and a lobby bar. The hotel’s exterior is customized to fit within the development’s architectural guidelines and requirements.

The Home2 Suites in Lebanon will be an attractive option to an area that is undergoing significant industrial growth, bringing new global corporations to the area with new hospitality needs. The Home2 Suites by Hilton will offer business travelers a 120-room extended-stay hotel with complimentary hot breakfast, laundry and fitness areas, free Wi-Fi, multiple outdoor spaces, 24-hour business centers, expansive community spaces, and pet-friendly environments.
