A joint-venture between affiliates of Dreamscape Companies and Meritage Group LP completed the acquisition of the Nashville Holiday Inn & Suites Downtown, a newly constructed hotel situated in the heart of Downtown Nashville in the city's vibrant SoBro (South of Broadway) neighborhood. This purchase marks Dreamscape's second hospitality transaction in the city in 2021, having acquired The Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown in June. The purchase of this 230-room hotel underscores Dreamscape's commitment to expanding its presence in the Nashville market, as well as identifying prime growth opportunities in key regional areas across the country.
"We are very pleased to be partnering with Meritage on this exciting deal. Nashville has long signified an area of keen interest for us, and after entering the market earlier this year with the purchase of The Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown, we immediately knew that we wanted to expand our footprint in this booming city, which continues to attract tourists from all over the country as well as across the globe."
-Eric Birnbaum, Founder and CEO of Dreamscape Companies
"We are thrilled to be expanding our presence in Nashville given the strong market fundamentals. This transaction marks Dreamscape's fifth acquisition in the last year and fits squarely into our thesis to acquire assets in high-growth markets at an attractive basis."
-Scott Broder, President of Dreamscape Hospitality
The Nashville Holiday Inn & Suites Downtown, located at 415 4th Avenue South, has been outfitted with 230 rooms and 8,700 square feet of first-class meeting space, making it an ideal establishment for leisure and business travelers alike. The property, which opened its doors just two years ago, also includes the street front cocktail bar and restaurant, 4th and Peabody, which is preparing to undergo a thoughtful renovation, as well as an on-site parking garage. In addition to reimagining the hotel's dining concept, Dreamscape is also planning to integrate additional retail concepts within the property's expansive lobby.
"We are pleased to partner with Dreamscape to acquire another leisure-oriented, new construction hospitality asset in a dynamic growth market. This is a continuation of Meritage's broader commitment to investing in downtown Nashville, which began in 2017, and this marks our fifth investment in Nashville of strategically located, urban-core assets."
-Jared Halperin, a Managing Director at Meritage
Located just a short walk from the city's ever-bustling and widely trafficked Broadway strip, the Nashville Holiday Inn & Suites Downtown places visitors in close proximity to Bridgestone Arena; Music City Center, the city's convention center; and other iconic institutions and landmarks. Additionally, those craving the best Nashville has to offer will delight in knowing that the hotel is situated just across the street from Nashville's famous barbeque restaurant, Martin's BBQ Joint.

Led by Founder and CEO Eric Birnbaum, Dreamscape owns and operates residential, retail, hospitality, entertainment and gaming properties, (re)developing experience-centered spaces that focus on maximizing each property's intrinsic value.
