Country music and the blues don’t immediately strike as being obvious bedfellows, but both have their spiritual home in Tennessee. And music (and barbecue) is what this state is best known for. Choosing the best places to stay in Tennessee might depend on your taste in music as much as your taste in hotels. If you love the blues or rock ’n’ roll then Memphis is for you, if you love country then you’ll find the best places to stay in Tennessee in Nashville, and if you like Bluegrass then Eastern Tennessee is for you.

Tennessee is also an extremely beautiful state, from the soft coloured peaks of the Great Smoky Mountains to the rich, green valleys around Nashville, to the steaming hot, almost tropical lowlands around Memphis.
Eastern Tennessee is where you’ll find the Great Smoky Mountains. The landscape of rolling hills, river valleys and rural towns you might recognise from Dolly Parton songs, which is great for hikers, bikers and kayakers. It’s also where you’ll find Dollywood. And green, outdoorsy hub, Chattanooga and kitschy Gatlinburg. And there’s a great art museum, the Hunter Museum of American Art.
Nashville is a country music 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 and coffeehouses.
And to continue on your musical pilgrimage, there’s Memphis - a dilapidated beauty on the banks of the Mississippi River best known as the home of Graceland: altar to Elvis. Or as the home of the blues. And it’s also got a great reputation for barbecue food.
But Memphis is a lot more than that, it’s an old city, with old time-y charms, but also a lively, vibrant city which looks forwards as well as backwards. The best places to stay in Memphis range from basic B&Bs to five star palaces, mirroring the city’s own housing situation - there’s poverty, but there’s also a lot of regeneration going on.
Our pick of the best places to stay in Tennessee offer a wide range, whether you're looking for a Smoky Mountain retreat or contemporary lodgings in the city centre.
