There’s no bad room in The Hermitage Hotel, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, but our favorite rooms are the Junior and Deluxe suites on the north side of the hotel. In addition to top-notch amenities like 600-thread-count Italian linens and deep-soaking tubs, these rooms enjoy a direct view of the nearby Tennessee State Capitol building. Like people-watching? There’s no better place to take in the action on weekdays than at the center of the state’s government. Designed by renowned architect William Strickland, the historic capitol building is a prominent example of the Greek-revival style. It first opened in 1845, so peering out your window at The Hermitage is like having a private viewing at an art museum.
