I planned a trip to Nashville with friends several months ago and booked directly with the hotel. I booked 2 rooms for4 people and received confirmation. Upon arrival from the airport we were informed that the hotel “overbooked “ and did not have rooms for us. The rude manager claimed it happens all the time. He claimed he made alternate accommodations for us at another hotel and would cover the cost due to the inconvenience. He initially said that the transportation to the alternate hotel was our expense. After further argument he agreed to pay the Uber cost. Upon arrival at the alternate hotel we learned that the cost of the hotel was not covered. We contacted him and he said “he misspoke “!!!! Unbelievable. Very disappointed. Never nook at this hotel.

We booked several nights at the 21c Hotel in Nashville because it looked like a cool hotel and was managed by Fairmont. Big mistake! With tax this hotel was close to $800 a night. We arrived at the front desk manned by two young people who could not have been less enthused to welcome us. They informed us that the mini-bar was “weight sensitive” so warned us not to move anything lest we be charged and that it wasn’t for personal items. We looked in the minibar for a snack and it was totally EMPTY. The room was labeled as Deluxe King but there was NOTHING deluxe about it. The room looked to have been used prior to our check-in with one dirty towel. Our room was not routinely made up. We repeatedly had to request housekeeping and it still felt dirty. This hotel is so not worth the price and we discourage anyone considering staying here. We would have moved hotels but Nashville hotels book up way in advance. Book early elsewhere.

Lovely and unique museum/hotel with interesting pieces of art. The staff and, in particular Tanner and Dustin, were very welcoming and accommodating. The location is excellent - within walking distance to all the entertainment on Broadway. If you want to attend the Grand Ole Opry, it is a 20 minute UBER or Taxi ride. We would not hesitate to stay at another 21C Museum Hotel.

Number one great location, however, number one "b" is the hotel itself! It is not your typical hotel, it is an experience! If you love quirky things, weird things or even odd things...stay here! The "Museum" is actually full of art and displays of different avenues of art in every place in the building! Lighting is different, elevator has actual entertainment to observe instead of staring at a non existent elevator permit or counting ceiling tiles to lift in case of an emergency! On my particular floor, a stoic Penguin welcomed me! My room was exquisite with multiple lush pillows that Goldilocks would be proud of! You just need to stay here. Experience it.
