The Hermitage Hotel doesn’t have a pool on the premises, but the hotel’s concierge usually directs guests to the YMCA down the street if they are Tennessee residents. The YMCA is for members only, but at just a seven-minute walk away, its indoor and rooftop pools are the closest options.
Guests at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel who just want a one-time swim can head to the Centennial Sportsplex Aquatics Center, about a 2.5 mile-drive from the Nashville hotel. The center offers a small recreational pool with open swim times and aquatic fitness classes (lifeguards are always on duty), as well as a larger Olympic-sized pool where you can dive and do laps. The aquatics center is open Monday to Saturday and is temperature-controlled throughout the year to be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. You’ll also be treated to all the amenities of an upscale fitness center, with access to showers, a changing room, a steam room and sauna. The daily rate is $7 for adults, $6 for children 5 to 12 and free for children 4 and under.
Of course, you’re staying at a luxury Nashville hotel, where the bathroom comes complete with a deep-soaking tub. Ask The Hermitage concierge to draw you a bath while you’re out for a jog, and then return to find your tub filled and calling your name with specialty bath minerals from Molton Brown.
