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
This was a beautiful hotel and all of the employees were very friendly and accommodating. Carol Abernathy at the restaurant was the hostess with the mostest!!! I felt as though i made a new friend! Also the gym facilities are very nice with plenty of equipment to choose from for your work out. Walking distance to Broadway and the Gulch.
Room practically soundproof and full of surprising amenities, stocked minibar, variety of snacks, and oh, uh...a small package of intimate supplies. Haven't seen that in a hotel before, even in other 5-star hotels. I heard that Nashville is a top destination for bachelorette and bachelor's parties. Sixty nightclubs on Broadway that start serving alcohol at 10 a.m. and many have live music. WiFi was slow. All else was above and beyond expectations.
We just stayed at the Hutton in Nashville for a wedding we were going to. We were impressed with the staff. Carol, was amazing. She was warm and very accommodating to our wishes. It made us feel like we were at home. Each time we saw her she had a smile on and was just wonderful. We ran into several other staff members there and they were always very kind and always helpful. The hotel was clean and was vibrant at night with happy people. Would highly recommend staying here.
Hutton is a refined, super clean, nice and overall an extraordinary hotel!
Hospitality of the South (first time in Nashville) at its best -everything from clean towels to perfect service.
One of my friends lost his phone the other night yet we were able to find it with the assistance from the reception desk.
Unfortunately we do not know the name of the African American gentleman at the Reception who helped my friend but I would like to thank and recommend him to the management for recognition.
Well done Hutton’s staff and management!
My wife and I are half way through our 5 night stay at the Hutton in Nashville. The Hotel location is perfect, the gym great, the lobby area fantastic, the restaurant and bar fun, the tesla ride neat and, most importantly, the staff are ALL unreal. If we had to single out a single member, Hostess Carol Abernathy would have to be at the TOP OF OUR LIST - Peter & Ann.
