After a long day of sightseeing in Music City, visitors are ready to relax at the comfort of their hotel.  Additionally, a comfortable bed is necessary for a good night’s sleep prior to heading out the next day.  Check out some of the best hotels in Nashville.

  1. The Joseph

While the Joseph is a Marriott Luxury Collection Hotel, it does not have a hotel chain feel but visitors have the confidence of the Marriott name behind the quality.  The unique features of the hotel include different wallpaper on each floor created by a local artist, a one of a kind leather registration desk, custom made carpets inspired by Nashville and rooms decorated by artwork from local artisans.  The new pet friendly hotel is of southern origin and heart.  Visitors can relax at the spa, take in the view from the 21st floor bar, or eat at Yolan the Italian restaurant directed by award winner James Beard and Michelin- starred chef Tony Mantuano.  The rooftop deck pool is great for relaxing during the summer months.  The Joseph is located downtown so visitors have easy access to most of the sights.  This luxury property has a higher price than many of the surrounding properties but the quality of the service and boutique features make it worth the extra cost for many visitors.

  1. Gaylord Opryland Resort

The Gaylord Opryland Resort is a Marriott Resort that is known for its waterpark SoundWaves.  SoundWaves is an upscale water experience with indoor and outdoor features (outdoor features are only open seasonally). SoundWaves has many slides, a lazy river and wave pool for family fun.  Visitors who plan to make use of SoundWaves during their visit must purchase the package that includes admission.  The atrium (not part of SoundWaves) features cascading waterfalls and indoor gardens where visitors can sit and enjoy the serene surroundings.  Atrium view hotel rooms are also available.   Visitors can relax at the full service spa.  There are more than 15 dining options available so there are options for even the pickiest eater.  The Gaylord Opryland Resort is located outside of downtown so visitors who intend to explore should make sure to have a car (parking fees apply).

  1. Westin

After a long day of sightseeing, visitors need to get a good night’s rest.  What better way than sleeping on the trademarked Westin Heavenly Beds? The Westin Nashville, a luxury hotel, is located downtown so it is easy to get to most of the attractions such as the Ryman Auditorium and the Country Music Hall of Fame.  Or you may not want to leave the hotel and you can treat yourself to a spa or a workout at the fitness studio and top it off with a dinner at the classic Oak Steakhouse.  The Westin is also great for larger families because the hotel offers suites as well as the traditional hotel room.

  1. Renaissance Nashville

Visitors looking for a budget property should check out the Renaissance Nashville, a Marriott Property.  The traditional rooms are great for solo travelers, couples, or a small family and the deluxe suite is an option for larger families.  Located in the heart of downtown, Renaissance Nashville provides easy access to most attractions.  The fitness center is great for visitors that want to keep up their routine and indoor pool is great for unwinding after a long day.  The on-site restaurant Little Fib features southern cooking influenced by local culture.

  1. Holiday Inn and Suites Downtown

Another great budget option for visitors is the Holiday Inn and Suites Downtown.  The hotel is in easy walking distance to most attractions.  Visitors can dine at their restaurant, 4th & Peabody and if there are any leftovers bring them back to the room and put them in the fridge.  The next day visitors can reheat the leftovers in the microwave.  All rooms having a fridge and microwave is a great benefit for families with young children.  During the summer visitors can relax by the outdoor pool.
