Rlj Lodging Trust’s Boutique Nashville Hotel to Join Hilton’s Tapestry Collection

USA, Bethesda, Maryland. September 05, 2023

RLJ Lodging Trust (the "Company") (NYSE: RLJ) announced that its Nashville property is joining the Tapestry Collection by Hilton. The 124-room property will undergo a comprehensive renovation next year and relaunch as a rebranded lifestyle boutique hotel within the Tapestry Collection by Hilton. This marks the Company's third conversion in 2023, joining previously announced conversions in New Orleans and Houston, and building on its three successful 2022 completed conversions.

"The affiliation with the Tapestry Collection allows this outstanding lifestyle boutique hotel to fully unlock its potential by immediately leveraging Hilton's extensive Hilton Honors system. The hotel is ideally located within one of the most dynamic markets in the country, and this conversion will help it realize its true potential," commented Leslie D. Hale, President and Chief Executive Officer. "The Hotel was already poised to benefit from significant redevelopment within close proximity to Bankers Alley, which will directly benefit the Downtown Nashville submarket. This conversion will further enhance the hotel's overall strong positioning and underscores our strategy of continuing to unlock the significant incremental real estate value embedded in the assets we own."

In 2017, the historic Gray & Dudley Building in Downtown Nashville underwent a transformational renovation into a boutique lifestyle hotel that is now the 21c Museum Hotel. The building displays late 19th century architecture with showroom windows facing both 2nd and 3rd Avenues, with a façade that is fitting of the Second Avenue Historic Preservation District. The 2017 renovation included the addition of rooftop terrace suites, with up-close views of the Cumberland River and surrounding historic district.

The hotel benefits from an outstanding location close to Broadway, the heart of the entertainment district in Nashville, and is just steps from corporate employers such as UBS, AT&T, AllianceBernstein and the Tennessee State Capitol. At the hotel, guests can explore museum quality art, experience the rich history of the alley, or take advantage of the central location to enjoy all that Music City has to offer.

The hotel will continue to feature art installations throughout the property, providing a unique backdrop to the approximately 8,000 square feet of meeting and exhibition space. Additionally, the newly opened eighth floor terrace will be available for guests to enjoy the downtown Nashville skyline.

Hotel Revenue Management: The Age of Big Data

The future of hotel revenue management lies in the adoption of ever more sophisticated software and technology, especially as it pertains to forecasting and pricing. For revenue professionals, the Age of Big Data has arrived. Managers are utilizing systems that employ leading-edge algorithms and machine learning, along with business analytics and data visualization tools. These tools communicate complex information more effectively, allowing managers to understand the key components driving demand and revenue. They have the ability to analyze real-time external and internal data, produce reports, and integrate information - all on a single platform - in order to improve performance. Managers are also utilizing  geographic information systems (GIS) which incorporate geographic data into forecasting. GIS also help decision-makers identify information in a visual way that cannot be detected through traditional data analysis. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on how some hotels are integrating Big Data into their revenue management strategies.
