“THE VERY BEST HOTEL IN NASHVILLE, TN.”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

From the minute we arrived at the front street level door two bell men came quickly to our car to handle our luggage, park our car, and told us to proceed to the registration desk in the upper lobby, AND WHAT A MAGNIFICENT LOBBY IT IS!!!!!!! It just took our breath away, again since this was our fifth stay return visit.
Our lovely suite was not ready and they suggested we go to the OAK BAR for a quick drink. Well, we had been to the OAK BAR before . It is a very attractive, comfortable setting for us to have our favorite drinks ; and, some outstanding food choices. I particularly like the hard boiled egg dishes. The special nuts were super. We were very comfortable and in no hurry for the bar experience to end. But, alas, our room was ready.
Two bellmen assisted us to our lovely corner room on the ninth floor. The room was very comfortable, impressive, with all the sitting area very nicely spaced.
The bathroom was large and spacious, with a neat large shower as well as a bath tub.
By all means, do not miss a dinner in their main dinning room. The selections were plenty; and, the wine list large and world wide. Service was a TEN!!!!

When in Nashville this has to be YOUR HOTEL!! OLD WORLD ELEGANT AND CHARM.

Room Tip: Top floors are the best.

My sister and I stayed here on a cross-country road trip, and had a marvelous experience! It's truly a 5-star experience. Concierge is attentive and more than happy to give recommendations, and the rooms are lovely and comfortable. We even got a complimentary bottle of champagne since we were celebrating my sister's admittance to law school! Location is ideal - a few blocks from Honky Tonk Row so you don't get any of the noise, but incredibly convenient to walk to/from for a night out. The hotel itself is gorgeous, and the fantastic staff makes it feel like a real treat. The only downside we found is you're required to pay for valet parking, but they let us keep our car there a bit longer the next day so we could spend a few hours exploring Nashville, which was much appreciated. Would definitely stay again!

First of all, it's a beautiful property. A classic and classy place. Loved the decor, both in common areas and in the rooms. The staff is very friendly and helpful! You can walk everywhere from this great location. Highly recommended!

This is a grand hotel in every sense of the word from the large, ornate and impressive lobby to the spacious rooms and huge bathrooms. We were most impressed by the staff, however, and particularly the people who work at the front door. I've never met a more helpful, more knowledgeable and friendlier group of people who work anywhere. A special thanks to Steve and Jordan, but thanks generally to everyone who works here. You really made our trip a great one.

I will be very surprised if this hotel is able to keep its accolades much longer. Don't get a room on the second floor or you quite possibly could be facing the roof top of the doomed ceiling in the lobby, which is beautiful from the lobby. The rooms are nice but not up to par with any other 5 Star hotel we have stayed in!! Just last month we stayed in another 5 Star /preferred Hotel and it was fabulous in every way. This place didn't have a shower cap available and the toiletries were not replenished until the last nights turn down service. The windows were very dirty on our side- guess they thought so too because on the last day there they began cleaning them.
All in all not up to par so we will not be back to this property!

This hotel is a renovated, historic building. There is a certain "wow" factor when you step into the opulent lobby, which immediately takes you back to another time. Check-in was fast, and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating.

The room was spacious and tastefully decorated. The bathroom had two sinks, a tub, and a shower, if that gives you a sense of the scale (which I would equate to a master bedroom in a modern house.) There was both maid service during the day and turn-down service at night.

We hopped down to the bar and restaurant a few times. The bar has some good menu items for snacks, but the star is its expansive bourbon menu. Watch out, though, prices range from 15 dollars to 90 dollars for the bourbons listed. The bar is dark and serious, and is different from the revelry going on a few blocks away, but the atmosphere definitely fits in with the elegance of the hotel.

We only had breakfast at the restaurant, since it was part of our room deal. It was a nice place to dine, and our server was very friendly. The food was good.

The hotel also features a large lobby, and other adjacent spaces to hang out if you don't want to go out or be in your room. There is a small boutique which sells things like women's dresses and other general things a traveler might need.

The hotel is located in the general downtown area. There are a lot of attractions within a short walking distance. Broadway and the honkeytonks are about a five minute walk away.

This hotel made our trip memorable, and I was glad to share in a part of Nashville's history.

The Hermitage Hotel is very deserving of all of its accolades, from exceptional service to room accommodations. It delivers southern hospitality and quality for which there is no substitute. Thank you for your attention to every detail.
