As the only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel located in Tennessee, The Hermitage Hotel is a unique and historic city hotel, the likes of which are hard to come by these days. For more than 100 years, the Hermitage has served as the hub for Nashville’s visiting dignitaries, major events and local celebrations.
This is no dusty, outdated historic hotel; the Hermitage underwent a massive renovation in 2003 after being saved from the wrecking ball by an investment group. The building’s grand, marble-columned lobby was preserved intact, as were many other unique details, including the famed Art Deco men’s room off the lobby (even ladies will want to have a peek at this preserved architectural masterpiece).
You’ll experience Nashville’s unique personality and ethos from the moment you stand before the doors of this luxury hotel and receive a warm greeting from the doorman. The Hermitage Hotel’s staff delivers a dose of Nashville style with their excellent, attentive, nonintrusive service, which is always mixed with unintimidating warmth. The Hermitage features local artists and vendors whenever possible throughout the hotel; since the walls can’t talk, make sure you ask one of the guest services staff to tell you some of the stories from hotel’s fascinating history.
