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
I am not normally one to review, however i just spent three nights at Hutton Hotel and was best business travel experience i have had to date. Front desk staff are great, very helpful. Bed is so comfy and best pillows ever for a hotel, i wanted to steal one. Rooms are good size and very clean. Located about a 5 minute drive to downtown core but they have complimentary shuttles that will bring you to the downtown. Within walking distance to great bars and food that are nice as your out of the madness of downtown.
This hotel was beyond amazing! It’s located in he west end neighborhood ( close to Vanderbilt), only a mile from broadway and the gulch which is made even more accessible thanks to complementary Tesla’s they have that will take you up to three miles away. You can walk to tons of hip spots for drinks, food and shopping. The staff was extremely helpful from getting us dinner reservations, creating an itinerary of places to go for us, to holding our bags post checkout/pre airport while we explored the town. They even sent us a lovely card with strawberries and champagne to celebrate our anniversary! Everything was impeccably clean and stylish; you felt like you were in a hip borough of New York City more than Nashville. Special shout out to Julie at the front desk who was beyond amazing! This truly is a gem of Nashville if you’re looking for an elevated and unique exeperience beyond the tourist flash at an affordable price point.
The Hutton hotel while not the Westin or the JW Marriot in size, is a wonderful alternative-5 Star accommodations with a wonderful staff. The restaurant has an awesome breakfast as well. Shuttle service to downtown Broadway was pretty snappy in their Tesla as well. I highly recommend that when looking for a hotel while visiting Nashville, you definitely give this place a chance.
Hutton Hotel earns their five stars as their entire team leans in to assure that our guest needs are exceeded. From the extremely friendly and accommodating parking attendants to the bellman who explained even where to find the hair dryer to the staff we bumped into in the elevator corridor, we were more than impressed. Thanks for setting the standard for hotel stays in Nashville. We commented that the GM from this hotel should go help the newly opened Omni Hotel in Louisville; they have a great property but could certainly use 'Hutton' style service.
I made a quick trip to music city and stayed at The Hutton Hotel. Great location, nice hotel, not a problem in sight. Loved my room and Happy Hour at the onsite bar was great. I would definitely recommend the Hutton for your trip to Nashville!
