My one-night stay at the Hermitage Hotel was a wonderful experience. While I question the 5-star rating, it's terrific reputation is well-justified. The renovated living rooms and bathrooms were clean and spacious, and my wife and I enjoyed the little touches - the full turn-down service; the choice of daily newspapers; the attentiveness of the staff, including the valet service (believe it or not). The opulent lobby is breathtaking, and the fitness area, which looks out onto the State Capitol, includes a fully-furnished locker-room, shower, vanity, and food/water bar. Go exploring and you'll find the room where Minnesota Fats used to play pool with guests and the restored lime-green, art-deco men's bathroom outside the Capital Grille. The check-in receptionist was not up-to-par, parts of the hotel need more upgrading, and the per-night room rates are overpriced. However, in lieu of the hustle and bustle of other Nashville hotels, a stay at the Hermitage is a reward unto itself.
