Sometimes being a socially savvy "in the know" Southern girl has its perks. I was honored to be among some of Nashville's online influencers invited to a VIP dinner and tour of Nashville's newest luxury hotel…and participate in the #OmniNashville Twitter party at the same time!

Monday Sept. 30, 2013 Omni Nashville Hotel celebrated its Grand Opening with an hour-long national Twitter Party & VIP Nashville gathering, hosted by @OmniNashville and @OmniHotels. The #OmniNashville hashtag was filled with pictures, facts and giveaways, including a stay at Omni Nashville.

For me, the best part was spending time with Jay Cooney, who manages Social Media for @OmniHotels from a corporate level and meeting Kellie Keyes, who manages social media for @OmniNashville (among other marketing duties), as well as others from Omni's marketing & communications team. My "marketing geek" hat was on as I learned all about how they planned the opening and manage communications as an internal team.

I applaud them (with a standing ovation) for a fantastically executed social media plan for the Nashville grand opening. The Twitter party was a success, trending on Twitter in Nashville and nationally!

Okay, so the hotel was nice too....I was impressed with Omni Nashville, from the classy meets country atmosphere, to the distinct "Music City" details throughout, to the amazing Nashville views, and let's not forget the BISCUIT BAR!

My favorite spots on the tour: the fireplace in the lobby (it's HOT), Willie Nelson's bandanna & boots framed in the hallway, the Five and Tenn gift shop (it has Jack Daniels barrels as shelves!), the roof-top pool (of course), and the live entertainment venue, Barlines.
