Following a $35-million renovation spearheaded by JRK Property Holdings, Sheraton Nashville Downtown has moved into the brand’s prestigious “Grand” category. It is one of just five properties in the United States to receive the distinction.
The reno included the guestrooms; 30,00 square feet of expanded meeting space; a remodeled fitness center; diverse new culinary offerings; and the debut of Skye, an extraordinary penthouse event space overlooking the city.
“JRK is proud to have Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown at the forefront of the widely esteemed Sheraton Grand category,” said Jim Lippman, chairman and CEO of JRK Property Holdings. “We have invested significantly in both the physical design as well as the guest experience to dramatically shift the perception of Sheraton with today’s modern traveller.”
