An airport news release says the onsite Hilton-branded hotel will be 14 stories and will feature a parking garage.
The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority board selected Chartwell Hospitality, LLC as the developer and hotel operator.
A covered pedestrian bridge will connect the hotel grand plaza and garage to the central terminal.
The public-private partnership will cost the developer about $95 million for the hotel and for the airport authority, $82 million for the garage and plaza.
Construction will begin in the fall of 2021.
