Located right in the heart of downtown Nashville, The Hermitage Hotel offers easy access to many of the city’s popular attractions. Of course, one of the things this city does best is music. No trip to Nashville is complete without a visit to the city’s famed honky-tonks such as Robert’s Western World, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Legends Corner and The Stage on Broadway. Many of your favorite country music stars put in time playing in these historic saloons, and you just might witness the next up-and-coming act during your visit to Nashville.
You can catch larger concerts at downtown sites like the famous Ryman Auditorium (the original home of the Grand Ole Opry; take a tour and stand on the stage where Patsy Cline and other legends once sang), Bridgestone Arena and Nashville Municipal Auditorium. For bluegrass and roots music, head to Station Inn, located in the Gulch area of Nashville. Mercy Lounge/Cannery Ballroom also brings in big acts from Lenny Kravitz to Katy Perry.
Other popular attractions near the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel include the Tennessee State Museum and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, as well as the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, home to the Nashville Ballet, Nashville Opera and the Tennessee Repertory Theatre. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is the home of the world-famous Nashville Symphony.
