Your Guide to the Best Hotels in Nashville
Coming to Nashville for a visit is guaranteeing a great time! Music City has a lot to offer. From live music to spicy hot chicken, there will be plenty to see or do. Chances are you already have a good idea as to how you are going to spend your time here. Visit the Country Music Hall of Fame, take in a show at the Ryman, or stroll down Broadway. If you’re headed here for a city escape, we’ve got some recommendations on the best hotels to stay that are in and around the downtown area.
1. Gaylord Opryland Hotel
Maybe one of the most iconic hotels in Nashville, the Gaylord Opryland Hotel is well worth a stay. It was established in the 70s. The popularity snowballed so much after opening that over the next 20 years they would add an addition 1,200 rooms to the original 500. It’s no wonder. Your stay will be luxurious and convenient to Downtown. They have plenty of onsite shopping and restaurants.
2. Patsy Cline’s Sweet Dreams Suite
When Patsy Cline “made it” in music, she purchased her dream home. She and her husband put a lot of time and effort into decorating and refurbishing this new house. After she passed, the home became a place for guests to stay. That means if you come to Nashville, you can spend the night in her house. The room where you will stay used to be her entertainment room where she would host guests like Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, and Brenda Lee.
3. Union Station Hotel
You can transport yourself back in time with a visit to the Union Station Hotel. The exterior architecture is still the Gothic style it was when it was first established in 1900. Back then it was a train station, and one of Nashville’s busiest. Guests at the Union Station Hotel can enjoy luxurious modern interiors with an onsite restaurant, live music in the lobby, and access to an art gallery.
4. Noelle Nashville
Built in 1930, the hotel has been beautifully restored to its original glamour. You walk inside, and you can feel a mix of both modern luxury and classic elegance. Noelle is very true to its Nashville roots and offers some shopping onsite that represents some of the best local vendors. They have an on-site cafe from local barista’s Barista Parlor and a bar/restaurant for dining.
5. The Hermitage Hotel
The Hermitage Hotel is known for providing guests with a comfortable and extravagant stay. It’s over a century old with impressive architecture. You’ll get all the best amenities like complimentary internet access, turndown service, and more. But, many locals like to visit to take advantage of their restaurant, The Capital Grille. The restaurant focuses on local offerings that you’ll find delicious.
6. Omni Nashville Hotel
If you need something in the downtown area, you can always stay at the Omni. Its mere steps away from the center of town. The building is beautiful, and the trendy decor is what visitors love most. Guests have access to a rooftop swimming pool and the Nashville skyline. Head down to their spa for a relaxing treatment.
7. Holston House Nashville
According to their website, “Holston House Nashville wraps refined modernism in timeless art deco character, creating a premier boutique hotel inspired by the Music City’s history, charisma, and soul.” One look at the place, and you will agree.
