Omni tops 100,000 reservations

Omni Hotel Nashville officials announced Thursday they have secured approximately 100,000 group room night reservations for the 21-story facility currently under construction in SoBro and slated to open in late 2013.

The bookings represent more than 55 meetings and conventions contracted.

Specifically, a conference scheduled for 2015 by the Society of Women Engineers pushed Omni Nashville over the 100,000 mark.

“We chose Nashville because we’ve had very positive experiences there in the past — surrounding areas are fun and safe, with many things to do,” Jeanne M. Elipani, Society of Women Engineers’ conference manager, said in a release. “The timing of the convention center expansion is perfect as we could not have come back without the extra space. Plus, the addition of the Omni Nashville as our host hotel will provide a new, modern twist.”

Omni Nashville Hotel sales efforts are underway for business beginning Nov. 1, 2013. The hotel will  host its first scheduled group, the International Entertainment Buyers Association, in 2013.

Poolside at the Omni

We figured yesterday's groundbreaking for the Omni hotel adjacent to the Music City Center — check out William Williams' story here — was a good excuse to post a rendering of part of the project that we hadn't seen until now. Here's a view northward from the 800-room facility's open-air pool, which will sit between its main tower and the Country Music Hall of Fame.
