NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Virgin Hotels, the lifestyle hotel brand by Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson, recently opened the doors to Virgin Hotels Nashville in July.
Conveniently situated at the helm of Nashville’s historic Music Row neighborhood, Virgin Hotels Nashville delivers a one-of-a-kind hotel experience with 262 ‘chambers,’ including grand chamber suites, plus multiple dining and drinking outlets including The Pool Club, a rooftop restaurant and bar, Commons Club, the brand’s flagship restaurant, bar, and lounge, and Funny Library Coffee Shop.
“We are thrilled to officially open our doors in the Music City,” said Raul Leal, CEO of Virgin Hotels. “We have taken measures above and beyond our standards to ensure our guests will feel comfortable, safe, and well taken care of while still maintaining the quintessential ‘Virgin’ experience travelers know and love.”
Ranging from 291- to 592-square feet, all chambers (rooms) are designed to consist of two distinct spaces separated by a barn-style sliding door, complete with a peephole, ideal for working, recharging, wellness, and an overall better contactless experience. The first space, “The Dressing Room”, combines the hallway and a dressing area which includes a full vanity, makeup desk with well-lit mirror, an extra-large shower with a bench complete with Red Flower toiletries, and a closet for two.
Slide open the privacy door and guests will enter ‘The Lounge’ with the brand’s patented ergonomically designed lounge bed, a red mini-fridge, high definition (HD) TV, yoga mat, pedestal table, and cozy built-in window seating that offers views of the Nashville skyline and Music Row. Ample outlets for smartphones, computers, or other electronic devices are found in various areas of the rooms. Additional amenities for pets are available in the chambers.
With the opening of the hotel, the brand is ushering in a new standard of hospitality with the upgraded mobile app ‘Lucy’ which allows guests to have a truly ‘touch free’ experience via mobile keys, controlling lighting, thermostats and TVs, ordering room service, and checkout.
The hotel also features a state-of-the-art fitness center, which is open 24 hours a day, and more than 9,000-square feet of flexible meeting and event space.
To maximize their time on property, guests can sign up for the brand-wide guest preferences and loyalty program, ‘The Know,’ to unlock member rate discounts, room upgrades, exclusive dining and event offers, and a complimentary cocktail hour dubbed ‘The Spirit Hour.’
