Chartwell Hospitality has partnered with Rockbridge Secure Hotel Development to develop a Hilton hotel at the Nashville International Airport.
The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority selected Chartwell Hospitality to be its hotel partner for the BNA Vision Plan that will expand the airport and surrounding area to accommodate BNA’s continued increase in passenger traffic. The Hilton Hotel will be the tallest building at BNA and the first and only hotel on MNAA property situated at the airport’s terminal door. Vertical construction of the Hilton property commenced on July 1. Rob Schaedle, CEO at Chartwell Hospitality, saidthe hotel would “get BNA one step closer to being recognized as one of the best airports in the country.”
The hotel will have 292 guestrooms, about 16,000 square feet of meeting space and a rooftop pool and Sky Bar with views of the Nashville airport. The top floor also has an oversized fitness center to take advantage of views. The hotel will have a café, lobby bar and full-service restaurant for travelers to enjoy coffee, drinks, and meals prior to flights without having to enter the terminal.
Nashville-based Crain Construction is the general contractor for the Hilton at BNA, hired by Chartwell Hospitality to build the hotel.
Chartwell Hospitality is also part of the development team of two hotels at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. The projects include a Marriott that is scheduled to open in Q4 2022 and a Residence Inn that will open in late summer 2022. Chartwell Hospitality will also serve as the management firm of these two hotels at JFK Airport.
