Chartwell Hospitality, Rockbridge break ground on three hotel portfolio

Chartwell Hospitality and Rockbridge are expanding premium hospitality options in Middle Tennessee by developing three new hotels in high-growth neighborhoods. Construction will begin this summer on a TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Brentwood, TN; a TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Murfreesboro, TN; and a Home2 Suites by Hilton in Lebanon, TN.

“The Greater Nashville area is a vibrant place and rapidly growing,” said Will Schaedle, EVP, Chartwell Hospitality. “With the influx of people and businesses, the Middle Tennessee area is in high demand for a variety of lodging options. Chartwell’s decades of experience allows us to evaluate the hospitality voids of an area and develop the specific property types that match travelers’ needs. We are also excited to continue our relationship with Rockbridge, a trusted and experienced hospitality leader.”

The TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Brentwood is located in the Eastpark development of Maryland Farms and is part of a multimillion-dollar revitalization project to modernize the area. With more than five acres of green space, the Eastpark development is home to thousands of employees and has access to Old Hickory Blvd. and Interstate 65. The TownePlace Suites by Marriott will be Chartwell’s third hotel in the Brentwood market. The hotel will provide 119 total rooms and suites to the local area.

Chartwell’s TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Murfreesboro is the only hotel approved for the Clari Park mixed-use development. The hotel is located on Medical Center Parkway near St. Thomas Hospital and offers 120 guestrooms with full kitchens, outdoor community patios with grills, free WiFi, on-site laundry, upscale fitness center, outdoor pool and a lobby bar. The hotel’s exterior is customized to fit within the development’s architectural guidelines and requirements.

The Home2 Suites in Lebanon is coming to an area that is undergoing significant industrial growth, bringing new global corporations to the area with new hospitality needs. The hotel will offer business travelers a 120-room extended-stay hotel with complimentary hot breakfast, laundry and fitness areas, free WiFi, multiple outdoor spaces, 24-hour business centers, community spaces and pet-friendly environments.

Chartwell Hospitality and Rockbridge partnered on all three, new hotel developments. The companies are also partners on the 298-room Hilton at Nashville International Airport (BNA). The Hilton at BNA is expected to open in early 2024.
