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
Had a nice stay for two nights in this hotel with a hip boutique feel. The room was a good size, large desk with plenty of plugs, awesome shower, and comfy bed. Didn't have a particularly good view from my room, but was there for a conference so my room time was limited to sleeping! I had room service two nights and the food came really quickly and with broad smiles. The staff were super nice the whole time. Attended a conference in the hotel and the facilities were great, the wifi was fast, and the event food was great. With Uber/Lyft this hotel is within 5 minutes of everything, or a 20-minute walk to downtown.
The hutton hotel is situated on a main road about 5 minutes from broadway. It is quite central in a quiet location. It has a boutique feel to it . We loved the atmosphere of the hotel and also the fact that during our stay there was a speakeasy concert in the hotel in a secluded bar upstairs. What a great find. The food was good and the service was excellent. I left my hotel jacket in my room and the staff went to the trouble of posting it to my next hotel which was in new york. Such great service , very rare to find staff so committed to looking after their guests in this way . Thank you so much .
Beautiful hotel great location just outside downtown welcoming smell in reception beautiful room great stay and great breakfast would recommend 👍staff excellent and very quite location for good nights sleep
We had a horrible experience at Hutton hotel this past weekend in Nashville. I hope you are interested to know more.
We had a great expectation for your hotel prior to our visit. When we arrived, the front desk is busy so we wait a bit. Then the staff is very rude and unfriendly when they could not find my reservation. Instead of looking for the problem, they question me if I am at the right hotel. No idea why she asked. Maybe the way I dress ? the way I look ? Somehow she think I does not fit your hotel ?
Then the other front desk staff come to resolve the problem. He found it and fixed it. He said he felt sorry so want to give me a better room which is a total lie. The room I got is the room I booked. I did not ask for an upgrade and he really has no reason to lie to me
Then the room is noisy at night. The bed has issue. I only can sleep right in the middle to avoid falling out of the bed.
We loved this hotel! The atmosphere itself was so inviting and "comfy". The room was great. Love the full size bottles of body wash, shampoo, conditioner and hand lotion! I also love the eco-friendly additions like having to use your room key to activate the lights in your room. You just put your room key in a little slot right inside the door! Also, great way to make sure you don't forget where you laid down your key!!
We walked around the area when we arrived and there are plenty of good places to eat in walking distance. The original Hattie B's is just around the corner. This may be our go-to place whenever we go to Nashville.
