This hotel is a renovated, historic building. There is a certain "wow" factor when you step into the opulent lobby, which immediately takes you back to another time. Check-in was fast, and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating.
The room was spacious and tastefully decorated. The bathroom had two sinks, a tub, and a shower, if that gives you a sense of the scale (which I would equate to a master bedroom in a modern house.) There was both maid service during the day and turn-down service at night.
We hopped down to the bar and restaurant a few times. The bar has some good menu items for snacks, but the star is its expansive bourbon menu. Watch out, though, prices range from 15 dollars to 90 dollars for the bourbons listed. The bar is dark and serious, and is different from the revelry going on a few blocks away, but the atmosphere definitely fits in with the elegance of the hotel.
We only had breakfast at the restaurant, since it was part of our room deal. It was a nice place to dine, and our server was very friendly. The food was good.
The hotel also features a large lobby, and other adjacent spaces to hang out if you don't want to go out or be in your room. There is a small boutique which sells things like women's dresses and other general things a traveler might need.
The hotel is located in the general downtown area. There are a lot of attractions within a short walking distance. Broadway and the honkeytonks are about a five minute walk away.
This hotel made our trip memorable, and I was glad to share in a part of Nashville's history.
