Homewood Suites by Hilton opens hotel in Nashville, Tennessee Tuesday 22 January 2008 PDF Print Homewood Suites by Hilton, the international brand of upscale, all-suite, residential-style hotels, has opened the 113-suite Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel in downtown Nashville. The hotel is owned by Church Street Lodging Associates and operated by Sun Development and Management. As interest and growth in downtown areas have risen drastically over the past several years, the urban market now offers a wealth of potential extended-stay business creating an ideal development opportunity for Homewood Suites. The brand has a number of properties situated in the heart of many downtown locations, putting visitors right in the center of a wide variety of shopping, dining and attractions. The Homewood Suites by Hilton Nashville - Downtown is conveniently located near shopping, restaurants, The Country Music Hall of Fame and the Convention Center. The building was the former Doctor’s Building opened in 1916 and inspired the book “The Doctor’s Building” by Robert Hendrick. To aid development in already-crowded urban areas, the brand offers a flexible suite-type, called the “shotgun suite”, for builders who choose to renovate older properties. These all suite hotels offer guests the same experience as a prototypical studio suite, but the shotgun suites are more lateral and narrow. This design allows developers to fit more suites into a smaller space. Developers are given the opportunity to arrange these suite types to best maximize their space and to meet consumer demand. Homewood Suites has a number of hotels located in urban areas, including Edgewater, NJ; Indianapolis-Downtown; Baltimore – Inner Harbor; Chicago-Downtown; and Seattle-Downtown.
