Nashville, the USA‘s Music City, is an ideal location for a romantic getaway, with such a variety of things to do in the Tennessee capital, from concerts to outdoor activities and great restaurants and bars. Whisk your significant other away with a stay at one of these romantic hotels in Nashville, ranging from a trendy Germantown inn to a historic art deco pad, to a modern glass-fronted hotel connected to Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame — all bookable with Culture Trip.

1. The Germantown Inn

On a residential street in trendy Germantown, this historic inn is one of the most romantic Nashville hotels. While it has plenty of period charm – it is believed to be the oldest building in the neighbourhood, predating the US Civil War (1861-1865) – there’s nothing musty or dated about it. You can cuddle up together under Frette linens or in plush bathrobes and if you get up early, you’ll be rewarded with a view of the sunrise from the rooftop deck.

2. 21c Museum Hotel Nashville

You can surround yourself with art by booking a getaway for you and your beloved at the 21c. The downtown hotel has several floors of rotating museum-quality art exhibits that make for a great date night strolling the halls, followed by dinner at the hotel’s acclaimed Gray & Dudley restaurant. Rooms are spacious with high ceilings and great views. The hotel is in a renovated building from 1900 so no two guest rooms are the same.

3. The Fairlane Hotel

There’s something about the Fairlane that makes it feel like a movie set. The old bank headquarters has been restored to its 1970s glory, with terrazzo tile floors, brass accents and mid-century furnishings. The plush rooms have velvet headboards with flip-down cupholders perfect for when you fancy enjoying some Netflix. The fourth-floor restaurant has nice views of the city, plus booths for privacy so you don’t spoil the weekend-for-two vibe.

4. The Hermitage Hotel

No hotel is more rooted in Nashville’s history than the Hermitage Hotel. Since 1910, it has been a popular choice for film stars, lawmakers and other big names coming to Music City. Al Capone, Gene Autry, the Singing Cowboy, as well as seven US presidents have all slept here. Guest rooms are furnished in an old-school style, decorated with tapestries and florals.

5. The Westin Nashville

This Eighth Avenue skyscraper has all the modern amenities you need for a romantic getaway, with comfortable rooms decorated in a Nashville theme — think leather and belt buckles on the headboards. On the 27th floor, you can rent a cabana for an afternoon of lounging by the pool.

6. Union Station Hotel Nashville, Autograph Collection

Built in 1900, and renovated in 2016 to the tune of $15.5 million (£11.4m), this former train station is a breathtaking example of gothic architecture. In the lobby, there are ironwork details and arches befitting the building’s former incarnation. The shape and size of each guest room varies, since this is a retrofit of a historic space, but all afford a private and modern retreat. Choose a room above the lobby level and you’ll get arched windows with views of the city.

7. Omni Nashville Hotel

In the heart of downtown, this hotel is connected to both the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and the Music City Center. You can stroll through the lobby and check out the displays of costumes from country music stars then feast at one of the on-site restaurants including Kitchen Notes, whose biscuits are considered some of the best in the city — high praise indeed. The hotel also boasts a rooftop swimming pool and whirlpool with views of the downtown skyline and cabanas, a lounge deck and a bar and grill.

8. Noelle, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel

Built in 1930, the art deco Noelle Hotel features artwork that pays homage to Nashville’s creative class. The Trade Room bar in the lobby is a must-visit for a drink or two before you head out on the town. The rooms are all on the small side, more similar to standard New York than Nashville, but they have all the amenities.

9. The Russell

This former East Nashville church retains most of the elements of its previous incarnation, including restored stained-glass windows, ceilings and repurposed pews as headboards. You can choose one of the two suites with indoor balconies that look out on the windows and the lobby. Both have plenty of cozy nooks for sipping champagne at night, or coffee in the morning. The Russell’s owners donate some of each room rate to homelessness ministries in the city, including supporting Shower Up, a mobile unit that provides those living on the street with opportunities for a hot shower.

10. Dream Nashville

There’s something that feels insulated and private about a stay at the Dream, despite the hotel’s status as a place where many go to see-and-be-seen. You walk along the feather-patterned carpet to get to your jewel-toned room, where you’ll find painted wood-panelled walls with clever cutouts for stowing your phones and tablets. You can don the waiting slippers and robes and stay in for the night or get dressed up and head to one of the six restaurants and bars on-site.
