Nashville Airport Authority approves on-site hotel, releases design images
Hilton BNA International will be the first on-site hotel at Nashville airport in about three years, the airport authority announced Wednesday.
A hotel has been planned for two years as part of the larger BNA renovation and expansion program underway.
The developer and brand were approved Wednesday morning by the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority. It is scheduled to open in late 2023.
Chartwell will finance the roughly $95 million hotel and the airport will fund an attached $82 million four-level parking garage with bonds.
“This high-end hotel, and the many amenities it brings, adds a special touch to our BNA Vision expansion,” said airport CEO Doug Kreulen. “It’s easy to see the appeal for passengers catching an early morning flight, arriving late at night or who simply want the convenience of a hotel room right here at the airport. We think it will be a popular venue for corporate functions and business meetings with unique airport views and sightlines.”
