Great Room

The Great Room is W Nashville’s flagship event space. With retractable air walls, this area’s size can be expanded and contracted at will. Perfect for wedding receptions or a big celebration (and just as effective for large company get-togethers, too).

Great Room ballroom with decorative lighting, wood paneling and dark carpeting with rows of round tabels set for an event.

Strategy

Strategy is our junior ballroom with 3,348 square feet of space which can be converted into 3 separate rooms. This space offers maximum natural light with floor to ceiling windows and is the perfect space for breakout sessions or meal rooms.

Boardroom

The Boardroom is W Nashville’s smallest official meeting space, but it still clocks in at a roomy 680 square feet. One of the Boardroom’s unique features is that it has two walls of windows, which provides for ample natural light.

Corner boardroom with pillar, floor to ceiling windows and large conference table with leather chairs.

Studios

Our Studios, which offer 686 square feet of space, all have outdoor terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows. They’re also located in close proximity to our pre-function area, which features a fully programmable bar and intimate seating nooks.

At 46 steps interspersed with benches and seating areas, our Spanish Steps are a focal social point. Book a private show on our outdoor stage, or recline on the stairs with a cocktail in hand.

Banquet
Generally used for meals and sessions involving small group discussions. A five foot round table seats eight people comfortably. A six foot round table seats 10 people comfortably.
Conference and Hollow Square
Appropriate for interactive discussions and note-taking sessions for fewer than 25 people. Many hotels have elegant "boardrooms" for 10 to 20 people, equipped with full audiovisual capabilities, a writing board, cork board and a flip chart.
E-Shape, U-Shape and T-Shape
Appropriate for groups of fewer than 40 people. These are best for interaction with a leader seated at the head of the setup. Audiovisual is usually best set up at the open end of the seating.
Theater
Appropriate for large sessions and short lectures that do not require extensive note-taking. This is a convenient setup to use before breaking into discussion or role-playing groups because chairs can be moved.
Reception
Stand-up social function where beverages and light foods are served. Foods may be presented on small buffet tables or passed by servers. May precede a meal function.
Schoolroom or Classroom
The most desirable setup for medium to large-size lectures. Requires a relatively large room. Tables provide attendees with space for spreading out materials and taking notes.
Ovals and Rounds
Generally used for meals and sessions involving small group discussions. A five foot round table seats eight people comfortably. A six foot round table seats 10 people comfortably.
