The Hermitage Hotel
Since 1910, the Hermitage Hotel has been the first name in downtown Nashville accommodations. Over the years, well-known figures like Al Capone, Gene Autry – and his horse! – and seven US presidents have stayed here. In 2021, chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten added his name to the historic hotel’s list of associations. The celebrity chef developed the restaurant and bar, Drusie & Darr, and the Pink Hermit, a cafe. The hotel is just a few blocks from the Ryman. Don’t forget to look up at the opulent hotel lobby ceiling.
