It features hotel rooms, apartments, a restaurant called Henley. A spa is also in the works.

“Nashville is one of those towns, or cities, in the country right now where people seem to be flocking to, not only for business and conventions, but also for leisure. For leisure weekends, it’s one of those markets where it’s busy all the time,” Mike Defrino said.

Defrino said good restaurants and bars are things that are considered when building a new hotel.
