AWH Partners Acquire DoubleTree Nashville Downtown

USA, New York City, New York. February 06, 2020

AWH Partners, LLC, a privately held real estate investment, development and management firm, announces today an investment into the DoubleTree by Hilton Nashville Downtown, a strategically planned investment in the alluring market. Conveniently located in the epicenter of Downtown Nashville, the newly renovated, 341-room hotel offers ideal access to Music City's impressive list of corporate and leisure demand generators. Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) brokered the sale and financing of the acquisition for the purchaser, an affiliate of The Inland Real Estate Group of Companies, Inc. (Inland), and Spire Hospitality, AWH's full-service hospitality management company, is now managing the DoubleTree by Hilton Nashville Downtown for Inland's affiliate.

"We have been diligently watching Nashville for a fitting investment for some time," says Jon Rosenfeld, co-founder and managing partner, AWH Partners. "Our team invested substantial time understanding the healthy pace of demand growth while also watching the recent, substantial supply growth in the destination. This vast hotel - fresh from a 2019 renovation and poised in the heart of the city - is an ideal investment for our portfolio, providing a great opportunity for current returns over a long-term hold. Additionally, as the DoubleTree by Hilton brand is known for its consistent and comfortable hotel experience, we're eager to continue embracing guests in warmth and welcome."

As the third largest city in the Southeast, Nashville has emerged in the past few years as one of the most dynamic, accessible and affordable cities in the United States. Cultural diversity, a variety of strong industries and a thriving creative community make Nashville among the nation's best cities for relocating, expanding and starting companies. Due to its low cost of living, no income tax and central location, Nashville has been able to attract numerous domestic and international corporations with top-tier talent.

"The corporate activity development in Nashville is remarkable," said Chad Cooley, co-founder and managing partner, AWH Partners. "Amazon is opening its 5,000-person Operations Center of Excellence in downtown in 2021; Philips added more than 1,000 jobs in the past year at Philips Plaza, which is adjacent to our hotel; while Smile Direct Club moved to the same building, also bringing thousands of jobs. Alliance Bernstein moved its headquarters from New York City, bringing over 1,000 jobs, the vast majority of which will be above Nashville's existing median annual wage. This hotel is poised to benefit from this corporate growth, coupled with the alluring leisure draw of the downtown destination."

DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown Nashville is steps from Ryman Auditorium and countless bars and restaurants on Broadway, as well as a short drive from Nissan Stadium, Bridgestone Arena, Tennessee State Museum and the Tennessee State Capitol. An early 2019, multi-million-dollar renovation of the hotel introduced a fresh, modern and approachable guest room design. Culinary offerings include the Fourth & U Restaurant and Bar, in addition to the seasonally popular Patio 315, which boasts live music, lawn games, firepits and a movie-size projection screen. Alongside 20,000 square feet of flexible meetings and events space, additional property offerings include an indoor pool, Starbucks, fitness center and valet parking.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
