Search the best hotels in Nashville
If you like country music then Nashville is a pilgrimage waiting to happen. But in addition to the cowboy boots, line dancing, and the honky tonk, Nashville is a culturally-rich city: booming commercially and with a young, vibrant atmosphere. Nashville is the kind of city where new things are opening up all the time, from art galleries to innovative restaurants and hip micro-breweries to coffeehouses. Some of the best places to stay in Nashville still have a country music theme about them, which can be a lot of fun.
Our Guru’s recommendations for the best hotels in Nashville are centred around Music Row, which is where you’ll find a strip of live music venues, plus pubs, bars, and restaurants - in fact, everything you need for a lively nightlife scene.
Beyond the music, Nashville’s architecture is pretty impressive as well, some of it historic and some of it modern, and they even have a full-scale replica of the Parthenon which you can find in Centennial Park. Slightly out of town you'll find a number of plantation houses, Fort Negley, a civil-war era fort, and The Hermitage, the home of former president Andrew Jackson.
What not to miss
- If you’re here for the music then by day you’ll probably want to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the Ryman Auditorium, RCA Studio B, the Grand Ole Opry House, the Johnny Cash Museum and Musica, a 38-foot high sculpture.
- Head around the Belle Meade Plantation to learn all about Nashville's history, and you can also taste a variety of the wines that they grow onsite.
- Tennessee’s great marble State Capitol is also worthy of a visit. Its steep steps lead down to the Bicentennial Mall, which is where you’ll find the wonderful daily farmer’s market.
- The State Park which surrounds the Capitol has a giant map of the state along with monuments recounting Tennessee’s history - since pre-historic time - and numerous fountains and a carillon.
If you're coming in the busy summer months then be sure to plan well ahead as the best places to stay in Nashville get quickly booked up!
