We needed a 5 start hotel experience on our drive to the south and we were extremely happy with out choice! The room was inviting and very clean. The bathroom has Molton Brown amenities and the shower was perfection. Our server, Mimi, in the restaurant was exactly what we needed after a 10 hour drive.

We are repeat guests and always enjoy our stay at the Tennessean. Comfortable rooms, welcoming atmosphere, and convenient to downtown restaurants and shopping. Don’t miss the Drawing Room and the Smoked Old Fashioned.

We stayed for a college visit and loved the proximity to campus! Attentive, friendly service. Restaurants about half a mile away so walk if you can - room service is forgettable. Valet parking is friendly but not fast so call down early!

The Tennessean lives up to its billing as a personal luxury hotel! The moment you arrive on the property you know you are in for a treat. The valet service was excellent; very professional and helpful. The front desk staff were friendly and truly accommodating. We stayed in the Executive King King; it was plush and spacious. Our family loved the spa style bathroom. It was so nice to have a large walk-in shower, as well as a separate soaking tub! It was very nice to have the toilet in its own water closet as well. We used the in-room dining service for dinner and breakfast; the speed of service was incredible! The quality and portion size were fantastic. The entire staff made our stay special! We will definitely be staying at The Tennessean again!
