Nashville Adds New Hotels and Unveils $1B Airport Expansion

To accommodate the region's booming population and tourism growth, Nashville plans to open 10 hotels from October 2016 through July 2018 and announced the BNA Vision, a comprehensive plan designed to enable Nashville International Airport (BNA) to accommodate its record-breaking passenger increases. Large hotel brands such as Westin, Tribute Portfolio by Starwood, and JW Marriott are planning to open in the Downtown area and Thompson Hotels will open in the The Gulch, a historic neighborhood on the southwest fringe of downtown. BNA Vision includes expanding parking, concourses and lobby areas, adding new gates, developing a state-of-the-art International Arrivals Building, increasing federal security screening lanes, and the potential for an on-site hotel, among other projects.
