Nashville's Best Hotels
Once Nashville’s main train station, this turret- and tower-filled Gothic building now serves the city as a Wyndham hotel. A $10 million renovation five years ago updated the guest rooms and added the Prime 108 restaurant. Rates start at $170.

The only AAA five-diamond hotel in Tennessee (and several contiguous states), the Hermitage is Nashville's first-class historic hotel, located downtown. From the bathroom concierge’s spa treatment to the gilded, vaulted lobby to the 1,000-thread-count sheets, this hotel's luxury extras make it well worth a special occasion splurge (rates start at $309).

At Nashville’s newest top-tier stay, we found a $139 special rate that scored a king-size bed on the top floor with a self-serve espresso machine down the hall. Hutton Hotel may also claim the best hotel bathroom in the city, offering such features as a glass sink and countertop, L'Occitane soaps, a granite walk-in shower with a rain head, and digitally controlled water temperatures. Try nearby Noshville Delicatessen, two blocks from the Hutton, for a brunch that will transport you to Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Located conveniently near the airport, Hotel Preston is a budget-friendly boutique hotel. After a $6-million face-lift, rooms now have upholstered headboards, down comforters, and black-and-white photographs of musicians (for that Music City vibe). Make sure to stop by the Pink Slip bar downstairs.
