There is certainly no shortage of accommodation possibilities in the capital of Tennessee
. There are options to experience the downtown aspect of Nashville
or the off-the-beaten-track B&B adventure. Either way, the South’s history
and hospitality is evident in every location.
The Hermitage Hotel is a five-star hotel. This is essentially a fact by virtue that John F. Kennedy and Franklin D. Roosevelt have both stayed here (among other politicians and celebrities alike). The Hermitage has been around for over a century, and it’s mastered the art of southern hospitality. The rooms are designed with comfort and taste as they’re gowned in vintage wallpaper and wooden headboards. Located in downtown Nashville, the Hermitage offers traditional styled rooms with the buoyancy of Nashville’s nightlife.

Union Station Hotel
Union Station Hotel is a historic landmark that has a vibrant history of an old railroad station. Remodeled in the late 80s, the railroad station became one of downtown Nashville’s most unique and splendid hotels. The outer Gothic architecture is contradicted by the modern yet cozy interior. There’s the sense of the past while staying (and sleeping) in the present. Another reminder of the modern present is the surrounding restaurants and shops that comprise Nashville’s trendy community.

Positioned about twenty-five miles outside of Nashville, the Moonshine Hill Inn is a cottage get-away that offers the option of a city experience. It’s tasteful and humble with its log-cabin décor.

Although the touch of paisley tablecloths and bed sheets remind you that you’re in the South. Offering all homemade meals, the Moonshine Hill Inn is the quaint bed & breakfast for a humble cottage stay.
