Looking for a wheely good place to stay near this oil-stained oval? Check out our list of the best hotels for a pit-stop in Music City.

Although you might associate the Tennessee capital with country music, you certainly can’t typecast intriguing Nashville. It’s got brains, as evidenced by Vanderbilt University, and brawn, thanks to NFL all-stars the Tennessee Titans. It’s also got the need for speed, with petrol-head mecca the Nashville Superspeedway hosting the Ally 400 Nascar event. In short, there’s plenty to excite, so you’ll need your beauty sleep – these well-placed hotels are bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Butterfly Hollow Bed and Breakfast

Butterfly Hollow is a three-bedroom B&B nestled in a storybook setting on 82 secluded acres (33ha) of land. This 1899 farmhouse has been lovingly restored into an ecofriendly retreat for guests who enjoy nature and solitude. The cozy, wood-beamed home has plenty of hammocks and private hot tubs scattered throughout its wooded grounds – ideal after a hard day’s hiking or biking along the nearby Caney Fork River.

2. Germantown Inn

The boutique Germantown Inn, located in the center of Nashville’s oldest neighborhood, is an 1865 Federal-style home reimagined as a ten-suite hotel. Period features have been accentuated by modern artisan touches, including custom-made wallpaper, Andra Eggleston curtains, and whimsical artwork by Caitlin Mello, making for a chic Instagrammer’s dream. Once you’ve had your fun rifling through the inside, kick back Southern style with a whisky on the terrace.

3. Courtyard by Marriott Nashville Mount Juliet

For convenience, this hotel is hard to beat. A free shuttle from Nashville International Airport whisks you to the check-in desk in no time. Unpack your bags in one of the spacious rooms and enjoy a leisurely cocktail around the flickering fire pit on the outdoor terrace, or pop on your swimmers for a dip in the indoor pool. With modern furnishings and free wifi, the facilities are top notch – there’s even a Starbucks.

4. Bobby Hotel

Expect the unexpected at the Bobby Hotel. Guests are greeted by Hairy, a rescue dog who serves as “canine ambassador” – welcoming your own pooch with enthusiastic wags. Decorated with an eclectic mix of vintage leather sofas, trumpet chandeliers and salvaged subway signs, each of the 144 rooms have their own personality. After a day at the speedway, round off your night with a cocktail and photo next to the 1956 Scenicruiser bus parked on the hotel’s rooftop bar.

5. Hotel Indigo Nashville, an IHG Hotel

The Hotel Indigo was once a bank, and has cleverly retained some of its cool original features – you’ll spot the mail boxes in the hallways and the traditional flooring. The rest of the hotel nods to its past, too – from the large, airy lobby, where a giant art installation of printers’ blocks makes a brilliant statement piece, to the ceiling-height, fully stacked bookshelves in its District Bar & Kitchen.

6. Hutton Hotel

Suite Hotel, Spa Hotel

You’ll find the hip Hutton in the heart of Nashville’s lively West End neighborhood, steps from the party-loving Music Row. Given the arty types you’ll find flitting about this area, the Hutton has understandably gone all-in on trendifying its offerings. Spacious suites feature ceiling-height windows and photographic art, while the hotel even has its own in-house music venue, Analog, which promotes up-and-coming local bands and pours you a mean cocktail.

7. Thompson Nashville

Get into the spirit of Music City at this Gulch-based boutique hotel. Throw yourself down on one of its marshmallow-soft beds, where mid-century style wooden headboards, elegant floor lamps and a bluetooth-speaker-cum-drinks-cabinet will make you feel like a bona fide country star. Don’t feel like filing your own glass? Head to the LA Jackson rooftop bar for expertly crafted cocktails and up to twenty regional brews, before dining on hearty Southern fare at the Marsh House restaurant.

8. Dream Nashville

With a focus on art deco, Dreams Hotel is a classy joint in Printer’s Alley. The impressive entrance lures you with twinkling lights, while the 168 guest rooms are equally enticing – lofty ceilings provide the space for a colorful palette of jewel tones, deliciously thick curtains and oushak rugs. Sporty types will love the fully equipped gym, which even has a Peloton bike. If you’re more of a foodie, there are six dining options, so you’ll be spoilt for choice.
