Nashville hotels: 2019 NFL draft, marathon, potential Predators playoffs a 'perfect storm'

Bret Hoffman, the hotel’s director of sales and marketing, said the hotel has repeat groups that have always been loyal to the property, located at 10th Avenue and Broadway, because it’s near the starting line for the marathon, and that it always sells out.

Plan Bravo?

...were secretly floating mass transit alongside new convention centers and arenas when I worked at 1100 Broadway. I saw the drawings then. We didn't think those would happen in our lifetimes...

    Plan Bravo?
    Okay, I thought the vote would be closer than what we got. I was not expecting a victory for transit, but geez... Once upon a time I was a card-carrying, hyphen-loving non-shill for local business-oriented types. I'm still friendly with that crowd (but more friendly with the free thinkers trying to overthrow the patriarchy...don't tell them!)
