The MeadowView Conference Resort & Convention Center has been developed as part of the 300-acre mixed-use MeadowView Master Development Plan. The publicly owned conference and convention center shares a common entry and lobby rotunda with the 195-room, seven-story, privately owned hotel tower. The 132,122 square foot conference and convention center component of the project includes 35,000 square feet of flat floor exhibit space, 20,706 square feet of meeting, banquet and pre-function space, and a full kitchen and back-of-the-house space to support a 200-seat restaurant, hotel lobby lounge and room service. The conference facilities include a 96-seat amphitheater, two ballrooms and a full complement of board and meeting rooms, all designed with state-of-the-art audiovisual technology.
The 103,785 square foot hotel features 305 deluxe guest rooms, lobby lounge, health club, gift shop, outdoor swimming pool and spa, and two tennis courts. The entire complex including surface parking for 900 cars is located on 50 acres surrounded by the new municipally-owned 18-hole championship Cattails Golf Course. The Cattails Clubhouse is located immediately adjacent to the hotel’s outdoor pool and recreation area.
As a result of the continued success of MeadowView, Acquest led a team that expanded the hotel and renovated the existing 195 rooms. The project commenced in the summer of 2008 and included the development of an additional 110 rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness facility and enhancement of the pool facilities. A simultaneous expansion of the conference facilities by the City took place in order to meet the demand induced by MeadowView and the increasing demand for space in east Tennessee due to economic growth in the region.
