On a recent trip to Nashville we stayed at the Hermitage, which is located right in the center of the city. It proves special from the moment you walk into the foyer. Opened in the early 1900s, the building is classically gorgeous, with painted ceilings, detailed moldings, , and thoughtful furniture and carpets, classic to the era.
The room was very spacious and quiet and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Despite having stayed in hotels around the world, I had never before seen a special display inside of a hotel closet with a sign offering three different pillow options: Foam, Feather or Buck –filled. It was interesting to test out the options.
After fun long days touring the great city, listing to great music (Broadway is only a few short blocks away) it was nice to “come home” to the Hermitage, with comfortable bathrobes set out on the bed. The bathroom was really top of the line, with beautiful marble throughout, including the shower, and a separate, roomy bathtub. While it was definitely overboard, I did enjoy having a great quality small flat screen TV near the sin to catch up on the morning news.
The concierge, David Andrews, was extremely helpful. Having grown up in the area, he personally took the time to create a driving tour through the beautiful, historic Belle Meade. The estates were truly magnificent, and definitely worth an hour of your time.
We drove through Belle Meade to Franklin, a nice town not to check out.
Another great thing about the Hermitage is the gym. While not huge, it was nice and bright with lots of windows. It has 3-r treadmills, an elliptical, recumbent bike, two benches, free weights and between the spa area ( which I did not use) and the gym, are canisters with home-made fruit-incused water.
I highly recommend staying at the Hermitage for any trip to Nashville.

Thank you so much for your kind review. It is particularly fun to hear that you tried the various and extensive amenities that are in all of the rooms. The beds you mentioned are actually brand new. The beds are by Hypnos bedding which is the only mattress company to be given the seal of approval by the Queen of England. That said, they were actually made right here in Nashville. We have been getting rave reviews.
The next time you visit you will have to tell us what you think of the new Nespresso machines we have just put in the rooms.
Please do come back and visit us soon. We would be delighted to have you.
