Nashville’s Convention Center Authority has approved a room-block agreement with The Joseph Nashville, a full-service, luxury hotel, which will be built by Ohio-based developer The Pizutti Cos.
Construction is expected to being this summer on a three-quarter acres site at Korean Veterans Boulevard and Fourth Avenue South. The property will add 297 rooms to the city’s downtown hotel inventory.
Under the room-block agreement, The Joseph Nashville will make 100 rooms available to conventions booked three years in advance, and 75 rooms available to conventions booked between two and three years in advance. This will bring the city’s total room block inventory up to 1,500 rooms for business booked three years in advance. The Convention Center Authority’s other room block agreements include the Omni, Renaissance and Westin Hotels.
“We are thrilled to welcome The Joseph to Nashville and excited about our partnership with them,” said Charles Starks, president and CEO of the Music City Center. “Our future bookings continue to be very strong and it’s absolutely necessary to our success that we have enough hotel rooms within walking distance available to our clients.”
