The Hermitage is a historic property in Nashville located within walking distance of most of the downtown sites and attractions. It is about a 15 minute drive from the airport. The hotel itself is meticulously maintained - from the beautiful lobby to hallways and the guest rooms. The staff is extremely gracious and responsive. Check in was quick, elevators were fast.
The furnishings are classic and understated, yet updated. The rooms are a very nice size with a king sized bed, nice natural light and plenty of lighting fixtures as well. The only comments I would make is that there could have been some more outlets placed near the bed and desk for charging electronic devices - and the climate control was almost completely silent. It kept the room perfectly comfortable, but I like a little 'white noise' from the fan, and that was not audible. Just a personal preference.
The bathroom was nicely updated with an excellent shower and a luxurious soaking tub. Molton Brown shampoos and lotions were a nice touch as well. Shower head and pressure were excellent as were other fixtures in the bath. Toilet has its own room within the bathroom. There is a flat screen TV in the bathroom as well for those who wish to soak in the tub and watch TV.
Did not try room service but did enjoy hotel catered meals at the business function I was attending and the food was very good.
All in all I would highly recommend the Hermitage as a place to stay on a visit to Nashville.
