The Grand Re-Opening of the Sheraton Grand in Downtown Nashville

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Oh what a night! Last month I had the privilege of attending the Grand Re-Opening of the Sheraton Downtown - now the Sheraton Grand Downtown Nashville! The Sheraton has been a staple in Nashville's skyline for many many years and now it's taking the Grand title. But what does that mean? There are only five Sheraton Grand Hotels in the United States and Nashville is proud to be the home of the 5th! With an extensive $35 million renovation, The Sheraton Grand now boasts the Skye Event Suite - an "in the round" event space with 360 degree views of the Nashville skyline at 28 stories high! Plus, the hotel's emmaculate modern, clean and geometric lobby, ballroom and bar area are all sights to see! It's pretty much had a makeover from head to toe! Keep reading to find out more about my time at the grand opening...

The night started off with a media reception in the Skye suite where the presentation of the Sheraton Grand plaque was presented to officials at the hotel! My guest Lindsy of Music City Events and I were oohing and ahhing over all the gorgeous modern details - from the black and gold cushioned barstools to the extravagant linens and table scapes the hotel event professionals designed for the big night. The views of the city were breathtaking and we even had to stop to take a boomerang of the amazing live jellyfish display!

If that wasn't enough, we all made our way down to the main ballroom where the party was like nothing else I've ever seen! Beautiful couches and lounge seating was everywhere to be seen with a dance floor, with custom designed draping and lighting. Someone with food and drinks were everywhere ou turned and the service staff made it so every guest felt individually cared for. A DJ spun some great tunes and in between sets, aerial artists, dancers and even a magician performed to create an upscale Vegas-like atmosphere for the crowd. I was blown away by the thought and hard work that was put into this event - it was definitely not one of your run of the mill networking events! The Sheraton staff definitely knows how to throw a party! 

And for the final bit of entertainment for the night? Earth Wind & Fire performed some of their greatest hits for the crowd! What an incredible show! I don't know what I was expecting coming into this event, but I was blown away by the hospitality, design and entertainment of the night. The Sheraton Grand is an awesome choice to host your wedding with so many photo ops and design elements that your guests will enjoy! Want to learn more about The Sheraton Grand?
