NASHVILLE, TN—Sage Hospitality has completed the $15.5-million Union Station redevelopment project, which has repositioned Union Station Hotel Nashville.
Acquired by Pebblebrook Trust in late 2014, the hotel has been transformed with a tribute to the historic city of Nashville in mind. The new Union Station experience is designed to convey a celebration of Music City, according to the company.
“In a city already filled with creativity, we are curating a distinctive, authentic Nashville experience,” said Michael Nelson, general manager. “The hotel entices trend-setting travelers with an adventurous spirit who are seeking distinctive hotels as part of their travel experience.”
Led by Dawson Design Associates, with Nashville-based Gobbell Hays Partners serving as project architect, Union Station’s newly imagined spaces pay homage to the property’s history by weaving the building’s architecture with contemporary and provocative details, according to the company. Design elements in the lobby include original commissioned art inspired by the grit and romance of Nashville’s legendary music scene; the barrel-vaulted stained glass ceiling; large-scale steel sculptures made from re-purposed and recycled materials; and three 10-ft. custom chandeliers.
Each of the hotel’s 125 guestrooms and suites were refurbished with walnut feature walls, cowhide headboards, custom iron and wire chandeliers, leather accents and contemporary amenities.
Carter’s, the new bar and restaurant, includes the oversized, two-sided marble bar, a custom mural and unique artwork, while meeting rooms retain the original tile and Kentucky limestone.
