Our Chief Inspiration Officer and owner of the Stanza Nashville property, Mark A. Cleveland is developing a technology demonstration platform — in the form of a hotel — a clean, inspirational and ultra modern atmosphere that appeals to anyone with a smart phone and a budget.
This is about creating an astounding, fully automated hospitality experience in a brand new facility near the heart of Nashville. Our building will greet you, the elevator knows your story and your room is ready. We know that hospitality and service is about getting exactly what you want, for a great value.
Stanza Nashville intends to deliver the richest experience at the lowest cost for a hotel stay within blocks of the Music City Convention Center and Broadway. To be a low cost provider, you have to eliminate unnecessary costs, like cars and parking garages. In fact, our approach to transportation is part of our competitive advantage. Bachelorette parties and other groups do not need or want rental cars in a Smart City like Nashville.
This is the first major hotel development to take advantage of Nashville’s urban development policy to allow buildings with no parking required. Yes, we save millions by skipping the excess land and cost of a parking garage. Just take Uber or Lyft wherever you want to go. If you must bring a car, we planned to offer an autonomous valet vehicle. The technology exists right now to use automated vehicles to transport guests to and from affordable off site parking, but our virtual valet requires the state of Tennessee create the structure for such a pilot program. So, we plan to make it happen by working working with Tennessee legislators (and Governor Haslam's administration) to put driverless cars in service. Stanza Nashville, a smart hotel in a smart city leading the way to a transportation and hospitality revolution.
