“Beautiful Wedding Location”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

We recently attended a wedding at the Hermitage and stayed in the hotel. The wedding was top notch as was the staff wedding planner. The wedding was well organized, food was delicious, and the bar service (thanks Thomas!) was excellent. The rooms were nice and large (although the carpet in our room had some wear) with a deep soaking tup and marble shower. Very clean. Friends reported that their concierge went above and beyond by helping to obtain diapers and formula. Housekeeping was great. Our only criticism was some of the service in the Oak Bar. We had a large group and the wait staff could be overheard complaining. Rooms were reasonable when purchased in a wedding block but I doubt we would be willing to pay full price if we returned. We have stayed at other luxury hotels and while the Hermitage is nice, the rooms are somewhat dated and not really up to the standard of other high-end hotels. Great location.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the capitol have a lovely view.

Beautiful historic hotel, the attention to detail by the staff was most impressive. Daily maid service was over the top
and returning to the room each evening was a treat. Beds and linen were very comfortable and in-room breakfast was hot and delicious. I would surely stay again.

Room Tip: Although the windows are not large in the hotel, the view from the side rooms overlooking the Capito...

I stayed at the Hermitage Hotel for my daughters cheerleading competition in March. The location is great, walking distance to Capitol building, Civic center, and historic downtown. The cost is a little bit steep for the size of the room, but you are paying more for the experience rather then the square footage. Being Nashville's first Million dollar Hotel in 1909, they kept a lot of that old charm intact over the years. Grand entry way, great architecture and the staff was really great and always there to greet you with a smile. Sure you can find a larger room in a Marriott or other hotel chain, but if you are looking for a rare experience, give the Hermitage a look.

After reading other reviews I wondered what my experience would be like. I wanted a nice one and didn't mind paying a lot more on this occasion. The building is well restored ,SUPER clean, and staffed with very helpful housekeepers ,doormen, and what appear to maintenance men or secret service officers. Our room was not beautiful- but we barely got reservations last minute. Again,Über clean.Beds pretty good. This hotel is decorated to appeal to much older southern women with traditional taste- it's not exactly tacky- but rather, it is unfortunate.Gold framed Audubon prints abound- it is not chic nor is it stylistically refined. The lobby decor is abysmal .
The oak room bar is tiny, loud- the wait staff clanged and banged around the service corner . The drinks were well made. The food was ok- get the stuffed eggs. I hated breakfasting in the grille dining room- the room was uncomfortably warm and the food and service unimpressive- the " jowl bacon" I was served was rancid and had to be returned.
I probably will not return to the hermitage hotel- for the price I expected more

When in Nashville, visit this wonderful piece of history. Marvel at the quality woodwork and the lobby restoration. Visit the men's room by the lower level restaurant and bar........and if you are lucky one of the employees will show your lady the men's room and tell some stories about this part of the hotel.

And that is at the Hermitage. Very large rooms. Luxurious bathroom. Dated decor but I find it's part of the charm. This hotel would never be mistaken for a W. I have stayed here twice and was very pleased. Impeccable service. I dropped an earring down the sink and engineering was up at my room in 3 minutes flat. This was after 10 pm and my earring was returned to me in just a few minutes. The bedding was extremely comfortable The pillow selection is a nice touch too.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Hermitage in Nashville while traveling the south with my husband. The service was incredible and the hotel was absolutely gorgeous! Our room was exceptionally comfortable with a great view and the hotel is central to many attractions, bars and restaurants. Looking forward to visiting again!
