That was the hotel where some guests didn't have hot water or electricity in their rooms.
The atriums were very nice, but from the news reports it sounds like they were destroyed, and the guest rooms were not. I hope they decide to tear down the guest wings and start over with an infrastructure that works.

The extent of the recent flooding in the Nashville area was brought home to me when I learned that portions of the hotel were under as much as 10 feet of water. All guests had to be evacuated, and the complex will be closed indefinitely.
