Owned and developed by Castlerock Asset Management LLC and managed by Wischermann Partners, Inc., The Westin Nashville is a newly built hotel located adjacent to Music City Center, the city’s new convention center.

“At the crossroads of music, culture and cuisine, the soul of this city has created a powerful draw to the destination; there is no better time to be in Nashville,” said Bob Jacobs, Vice President of Brand Management, North America, Westin Hotels & Resorts.  “As more travelers are looking to keep their well-being routine on the road, we are thrilled to introduce The Westin Nashville and offer the brand’s signature amenities and programs to global guests and local residents alike.”

Thoughtfully-designed to capture the unconventional charm of the city, The Westin Nashville stands 27 stories high and boasts 453 beautiful, well-appointed guestrooms and suites with floor-to-ceiling windows offering unbeatable views of the city.  Drawing inspiration from the vibrancy of the city while promoting an energizing sense of well-being, the hotel has been designed in partnership with The David Mexico Design Group and Bullock Smith & Partners.
