Accommodations in Nashville range from luxury to budget hotels and also include bed-and-breakfasts. Be aware that many conventions and trade shows take place in town, and attendees often fill the hotels: Book ahead whenever possible.
Among the hotels of special note is the deluxe Hermitage Hotel downtown. It occupies a historic building dating from 1910 and has been renovated to its former splendor; be sure to check out the men's restroom near the dining room. Also downtown, the grandly renovated Union Station, a Wyndham Historic Hotel, is a former train station with art-deco touches, including a bas-relief series called Angels of Commerce on the mezzanine level.
Families should check out the Marriott at Vanderbilt on West End—a great and child-friendly location, with an indoor pool and a magnificent view of the Vanderbilt football stadium. Another popular choice in West End is the Loews Vanderbilt Plaza—luxurious and cosseting for business travelers, and the hotel bar frequently draws a celebrity crowd.
The best-known hotel in Nashville, however, is undoubtedly the Gaylord Opryland Resort, with almost 3,000 rooms and a spectacular atrium interior. (Its location, however, is convenient only for visiting the Grand Ole Opry and Opry Mills Shopping Center.) A newer notable hotel is the Hotel Indigo on West End Avenue.
