Virgin Hotels opens its newest location on Nashville’s Music Row today (July 1). The 14-story hotel will offer 262 guest rooms ranging from 290-590 square feet, along with amenities including The Pool Club Rooftop and Bar, two ballrooms, the Commons Club (the brand’s flagship restaurant, bar and lounge), and the Funny Library Coffee Shop.
Developed by The Buccini/Pollin Group and operated by Virgin Hotels, the space also includes a fitness center and more than 9,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
In September 2017, Sir Richard Branson visited Nashville to celebrate the groundbreaking ceremony for the hotel.
The British billionaire said during that groundbreaking ceremony, “The last time I was in Nashville, which sort of shows my age, is when I was sitting in a studio watching Roy Orbison making an album. He was an artist on Virgin Records years ago, who was a wonderful man and wrote beautiful music. So I never thought when I was sitting there in the studio, that one day I would be building a hotel at the end of the street.”
According to The Nashville Post, Virgin Hotels parent company Virgin Group paid $11 million for the location December 2015.
