Just like every other city, Nashville has its fair share of airport-convenient, style-neutral hotels. But if you're looking for something with a little more flair, there are plenty of boutique hotels to choose from, too.
The Hermitage Hotel, Tennessee's only Forbes Travel Guidee Five-Star hotel, offers guests a high-end, southern experience right in the heart of downtown. Over 100 years old, the Hermitage hotel underwent a 2003 renovation that nearly doubled suite sizes, while hotel staff maintained the same level of friendly professionalism that has made this the premier hotel in Tennessee for several generations past, and will surely be for generations to come.
Hutton Hotel is located at 1808 West End Avenue, hence the name of its adjacent restaurant, 1808 Grille. With modern decor and some of the best vews of the city skyline, Hutton Hotel offers a boutique hotel experience with pet friendly rooms, on-site spa services, and 24-hour valet parking. It also holds the title of Nashville's greenest hotel.
Loews Vanderbilt Hotel is leading the pack of boutique hotels by embracing the "new" in Nashville with a recent $17 million renovation. Rather than focusing solely on the city's country music heritage, Loews has recently renovated the main lobby, restaurant, bar, and hotel suites to reflect a more vibrant scene. Today, the hotel is full of Nashville's new cosmopolitan culture: there's a regular soundtrack of local rock music (think Jack White, not Reba McIntire), high-end food (think crab fritters, not hamburgers), and locally sourced art (like an entire wall mural made of old vinyl record images). Chef Brandon Frohne leads the way at Loews' newly opened Southern Brasserie, Masons.
