US: Valor Hospitality Partners has announced plans to open the 119-room The Harpeth Hotel in the heart of historic Franklin, Tennessee, in August 2019.

A Curio Collection by Hilton, The Harpeth will be Franklin's first luxury downtown hotel, featuring spacious rooms, an upscale chef-driven restaurant, European-style street café, over 5,000 square feet of meeting space and access to an in-complex day spa - A Moment's Peace Salon and Day Spa.

The Harpeth will be nestled in Franklin's historic district, next to the banks of the Harpeth River, just south of Nashville.

The boutique hotel itself will feature elegantly designed guest rooms and spacious suites, combining the subtle touches of Franklin's culture and history with modern-day comfort. Rooms will include 55" LCD TVs, and bathrooms with showers and tubs, plush robes and slippers, among the amenities.

It will be home to 1799 Kitchen & Cocktails, an upscale chef-driven restaurant, and McGavock's Coffee Bar & Provisions, a European-style street café. 1799 will showcase bold flavours of locally and regionally influenced American cuisine, while the latter will serve Honest Coffee Roasters coffee along with sandwiches, freshly baked pastries, and other locally-sourced food and drink items.

The Harpeth general manager Justin Foster said: "With its rich history, a great music and art scene, and fantastic artisanal options, Franklin is one of the best places in the country to visit right now.

"We're looking forward to opening the first hotel in the heart of this great city, offering visitors a refined, yet comfortable place to stay and dine, while they explore the unique culture and landscape of the area and create their own stories at our hotel," he added.

The Harpeth will also cater to corporate groups, weddings and other social events, with over 5,000 square feet of flexible event space, including a Riverside Ballroom and Maury Boardroom.  A stunning courtyard, with a grand staircase and picturesque fountains, completes the event space.

Other amenities within the hotel include a whiskey keep and a private library, with a handpicked collection of books that underpin the city's rich history, including the Battle of Franklin. 

Additionally, The Harpeth will be part of a larger multi-use complex - Harpeth Square, that will be home to A Moment's Peace Salon & Day Spa, offering a vast range of services and private access to hotel guests. In its entirety, Harpeth Square will feature 150 luxury residences, a 597-space parking garage and a variety of retail vendors. 

The boutique hotel will be located at 130 2nd Avenue N in Franklin, meaning guests can explore the unique culture, local dining and shops, art galleries, entertainment venues, accredited Historic Main Street, and travel back in time to one of the civil war museums and battlefield.
