Our top hotel finds in Nashville include:
Union Station Hotel: This is a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel that has transformed the former Union Station into a stunning historic hotel. It has lovely rooms, a health club, bar and restaurant and lobby under the beautiful ceiling. The station opened in October 1900 and has a gothic design with lofty turrets and towers. The station saw Mae West, Al Capone and Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Warren Harding during its glory years. It became a hotel in 1986 and re-opened in October 2007 after an $11 million dollar renovation.
Aloft Hotel: A short drive from downtown, this is a hip, contemporary hotel at 1719 West End Ave. I like the concept and recommend this property. It has a very colorful lobby and bar.
Hutton Hotel: For those wanting a design, boutique hotel near downtown, this is the place for you. It is located at 1808 West End Ave.
The 404 Hotel and Kitchen: This is a small contemporary designed restaurant with an attached boutique hotel with five king rooms. 404 12th St. Ave. S. in the Gulch neighborhood.
For the more traditional, the Hermitage Hotel downtown is the place for you. It is located at 213 Sixth Ave. North and is known for its restaurant, The Capitol Grille. It opened in September, 1910 and was recently renovated.
I just read about the hip Urban Cowboy B&B located in an historic Victorian mansion in East Nashville. I can’t wait to try it on my next trip. 1603 Woodland St.
