Curvaceous 33-story skyscraper dressed in leather and velvet, just across the street from the Music City Center convention complex

The Lowdown

Nashville’s industrial roots get the cosmopolitan treatment at this 533-room high-rise where, inside, you’ll find 100 pieces of contemporary art—odes to the city’s musical history. Public spaces are glossy but minimalistic (leather upholstery shares the stage with steel and bronze frames) and rooms are just as regal with their deep blues and pale wood paneling. No other spot harnesses the hotel’s sophisticated Southern soul better than chef Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak, an innovative, all-American, Adam Tihany–designed steakhouse with a striking indoor-outdoor terrace that looks out onto Nashville’s many landmarks. Here, diners (who might be dressed in anything from cowboy boots to Louboutins) can feast on a parade of decadent plates like foie gras donuts, French fries “flights,” and other delights often prepped table-side. Keep the evening going at the adjacent lounge, where bourbon cocktails often mirror the sunset views you’re soaking in.

In the Area

Though the hotel’s immediate surroundings aren’t especially noteworthy, short walks will lead you to Nashville’s energetic hub including the honkytonk bars of Broadway along with The Gulch, a former railroad terminal turned trendy community now home to some of the city’s best restaurants including Adele’s, where chef Jonathan Waxman focuses on seasonal New American fare, and Biscuit Love, the brick-and-mortar version of a popular food truck. The Gulch is also the site of the Frist Art Museum, an eye-catching Art Deco building that showcases a rotating collection of temporary exhibits. The city’s other hot neighborhood, 12South—a leafy stretch lined with bungalow-style homes and designer boutiques—is a 10-minute Uber ride away.

Obnoxious construction
Reviewed 1 day ago

Ok so this is completely out of the hands of the hotel. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are awesome and staff is great. There is construction going on directly across the street and it has been going on since before 7:00 am hence my review at this time. It’s so loud i tried to do some work and that is not even possible. Went out for a work conference last night and zero chance of getting any rest at all. If you are traveling for work I’d try somewhere else or request to be facing away from the city if you want any type of rest.

It was our 23rd anniversary, it was time to go big or go home. This hotel had been opened just a few months.I had seen it being built on a trip in May and knew i had to stay there. It truly is a piece of art. It was November and rate was 400/night. Great view, hi-tech room, plush robes, turn down service with chocolates. staff had soothing music playing when we got in room that night. Staff actively friendly and courteous. Boubon steakhouse continued the awesome service experience. best view in nashville at bourbon steakhouse. Do I really have to say the meal was flawless? Meal was 200.00 for us including drinks. For once a year, worth every dime. parking about 40-50 dollars. one block to the arena. about three blocks to Tootsies. Safe, enjoyable walk. If you have special occasion coming up, dont go cheap on your spouse. At J W Marriott you will experience cool, luxury.....if just for one night.

Not up to standard for a Marriott.

I arrived a day early for a business conference and stayed the Sunday night before the conference. Monday to my surprise after leaving the room in the morning I arrived back at 4:00 pm to find my room was never cleaned.

I called housekeeping and was told they had until 5:00 pm to make up my room.

The lobby of the hotel is beautiful but very disappointed in everything else. 3 nite stay. Maybe 3 stars at best.

Luxury and comfort
Reviewed 1 week ago

I stayed in a Corner King room, June 2019, solo traveler on business. The room was very comfortable and spacious. The floor to ceiling windows made the room feel even bigger, and provided a terrific view of the city. Full marks to housekeeping staff, the room was spotless. I appreciated the little touches that really elevated my stay: comfortable robe and slippers, spacious closet, and small water bottles available in room. Loved the decor. The staff at the hotel were wonderful, friendly and accommodating. Pool area was large and had a couple of cabanas. I 10/10 stay here again. Try breakfast at the Stompin Grounds, it was great.
