Nashville, TN (PRWEB) February 16, 2008
In a time where a slowing economy is on everyone's mind, Nashville continues to see positive travel industry growth.
Tourists and business travelers continue to flock to the famous Music City, notes Butch Spyridon, President of the Nashville Convention and Visitor's Bureau (CVB).
"Nashville is in a great position to minimize any impact from an economic downturn,' says Spyridon. 'Our diverse economy has created a very stable economic environment--health care, automotive, education, government, music and hospitality are all significant economic engines for the area. In addition, we are experiencing one of our best sales years ever and have just received initial approval for a new $600 million downtown convention center."
From the perspective of a Nashville airport hotel, the Nashville Airport Marriott continues to steady increase in group proposals through the CVB.
'We've seen a 148% increase in the number of group bookings we saw in January, verses the same time last year,' notes Jim Kintzler, Director of Sales and Marketing at the Nashville Airport Marriott. 'In addition to draw of the Nashville market overall, our clients are very pleased with our multi million dollar renovation and once again we rank in the top 10% of all North American Marriott hotels in guest satisfaction. We're proud to show our guests the kind of hospitality for which Nashville is known."
There's no wonder that even in the midst of a time when travelers are hesitant about spending money on hotels, dining and travel, the Airport Marriott's Nashville accommodations are booked, and out-of-towners are happily experiencing all that Nashville has to offer.
Along with a beautiful, temperate climate throughout the year, Nashville is a convenient drive distance from many of the nation's major cities with nearly 50% of the US population living within a 650 miles radius of Nashville. Inexpensive flights to and from Nashville also encourages travelers to spend time in the Music City.
The Marriott Hotel in Nashville is perfectly positioned near the Nashville International Airport and just moments from the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry, making any trip to the city convenient and enjoyable.
Whether for business of pleasure, experience all the benefits of traveling to Nashville this time of year, and let the Nashville Airport Marriott welcome you with world-class Nashville accommodations.
