If you’re visiting Nashville for business rather than pleasure, The Hermitage Hotel provides plenty of amenities to keep business travelers well cared for.
In lieu of a business center, this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel makes computers and printers available to you in two small rooms. Despite their size, they still provide all of the typical business center services, primarily through the hotel’s front desk, where printing, copying and faxing services are available. Full secretarial services can be requested, and a notary public is onsite weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In your guestroom at The Hermitage Hotel, you’ll find three two-line phones so you never have to worry about missing a business call, and there’s an iPod docking station that doubles as an alarm clock, so you won’t miss any early morning meetings. Wi-Fi is free in the rooms, and there’s complimentary tea and coffee every morning in the lobby to help get your morning started off right. Need to look your best to impress the boss? There’s an onsite shoeshine service, as well as laundry and dry cleaning. The luxury Nashville hotel also loans out PC laptops to guests, so don’t despair if you forget your computer at home.
The Hermitage Hotel also offers five conference rooms to serve your meeting needs. At 2,484 square feet, the historic, Russian-walnut-paneled Grand Ballroom is the biggest; it’s ideal for larger business functions or receptions. The Veranda was an open-air setting early in The Hermitage Hotel’s history, but since then, it has been turned into a bright, airy spot for hosting elegant receptions, press announcements and meetings.
The Performing Arts Suite serves as the perfect breakout room, while the State Room is the hotel’s intimate executive board room, seating up to 12 people. The Governor’s Salon had the distinction of housing Minnesota Fats’ pool table while he lived at The Hermitage Hotel from the mid-1980s to early 1990s. The salon is located on the mezzanine level, secluded from other meeting spaces and affords an excellent view of The Hermitage Hotel’s beautiful lobby.
