My husband and I decided to take a romantic getaway to Nashville recently, and I selected The Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, just across the plaza from the TN State Capitol, and about 4 blocks from Broadway and the Ryman Theater. It's the only AAA 5 Diamond hotel in Tennessee, and at 100-plus years old, is on the National Register of Historic Places. The lobby and public rooms are absolutely gorgeous, dripping with turn-of-the-century grandeur.
Our room was large, elegant, and beautifully appointed. Everything was top-notch, from the fantastic marble shower to the luxury French linens on the bed. The room came complete with a hardbound book detailing the history of the hotel, from its glory days to its near demolition in the 1980s. Our view was the only imperfect thing, as we looked down on a rooftop and parking garage, but we had booked late and were lucky to have even gotten a room.
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and I need to mention the little dress and jewelry boutique to the left of the front entrance, where I purchased a sweet little black dress and some jewelry - great selection for a small space, and a lovely salesperson! While the hotel is a bit pricey, it doesn't disappoint.You'll feel like royalty, even if you've just visited some of the honky-tonk bars on Broadway!
