Don’t be put off by the boxy, prosaic exterior of this former office building in Nashville’s bustling West End—the Hutton embodies contemporary sophistication, from the red and tan color scheme to the 14-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and flat-screen HDTVs with high-tech media hubs. The eco-conscious hotel attracts a sizable contingent of guests with business either at nearby Vanderbilt University or the hub of the city’s recording industry, Music Row. Super-swish guest rooms are done with bold colors, granite bathrooms, and mod lighting, and all are outfitted with a bevy of eco-sensitive and high-tech features: card readers that turn off the lights when you leave the room, energy-efficient LED or fluorescent lamps, and multimedia high-def entertainment systems. Fitness buffs take note: seven of the larger rooms have elliptical cross-trainers in their extended living areas. The hotel’s 1808 Grille dishes up inventive regional American fare like herbed spaetzle with fennel-braised duck, and tender lamb T-bone with smoked butternut squash, blood orange and pistachio. There’s also the cozy bar where you can order lighter fare (mostly sandwiches and paninis) and peruse the extensive lists of wine, craft beer, and whiskeys. Downtown’s museums and rollicking music clubs are just a five-minute ride away—just ask for a lift in the hotel’s hybrid courtesy shuttle.
In the Area
You don’t have to be an ardent fan of the genre to enjoy downtown’s Country Music Hall of Fame, an impressive museum of popular culture and American music. A glimpse of Les Paul’s 1941 electric guitar is alone worth the visit. From there, it’s an easy walk to verdant 132-acre Centennial Park, which is laced with paths and gardens and anchored by the Parthenon, a full-scale replica of the Athens landmark. Alternatively, make the 10-minute drive (or cab ride) to the city’s coolest up-and-coming neighborhood, East Nashville, a repository of distinctive restaurants and quirky coffeehouses. In another of Nashville’s hip neighborhoods, 12th Avenue South, the one-of-a-kind Katy K Designs is your one-stop for vintage-inspired dresses, boots, hats and embroidered men’s shirts that would make Patsy Cline or Chet Atkins proud.
How to Get There
Hi everyone, we have stayed at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville many times...... seriously.. it’s perfect! This last visit we had a very complicated stay of coming and going over 3 weeks.... the hotel were fantastic! One of the supervisors, Rebecca Lynne and Catherine Fzzel..., they looked after us beautifully! All the front desk staff, the valet car parking staff, the room staff, the bar staff and the restaurant staff....... all fantastic! We are regular visitors to Nashville as one of our children lives there. We will always stay at the Hutton, it’s the best hotel we have ever stayed at!!
Great staff , valet , room, Food ..I also enjoyed the weight room ! The only weak spot was Restaurant management but food for Breakfast was excellent. Will stay there again. Rooms have nice showers and extra large flatscreens.
We stayed here just prior to our son moving in to Vanderbilt University. Everything was perfect. Very handy location within walking distance to everything we wanted to do. Room was spacious and well appointed. Staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. We used this hotel as a bit of a test run for future visits as we will be visiting Nashville many times over the next 4 years and we are already looking forward to our next stay at The Hutton in October.
