Thompson Nashville made a bold statement as soon as it hit the Music City hospitality scene, with boutique style to spare. Your room or suite is at once urban and rustic, with a sliding barn door, a subway-tiled bathroom, floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the neighborhood or city, and a Marshall bluetooth speaker for streaming your favorite Dolly Parton and George Strait tunes post-visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Of the hotel’s three stellar dining spots, the signature restaurant is Marsh House, which is the creation of celebrity chef and James Beard Award-winner John Besh and serves his takes on seafood and southern classics. Here and at panoramic rooftop bar L.A. Jackson, you can taste Southern brews and fine wines from small-batch producers. For your caffeine fix, hit Killebrew, with java by Alabama export Revelator Coffee Company, plus a pastry counter and menu of morning breakfast and afternoon grab-and-go sandwiches.
In the Area
The hotel is set in the Gulch District, a LEED-certified community with an industrial vibe and plenty of hip new restaurants, bars and shops. Among these are buzzed-about boutiques and music venues, since you can’t experience Music City without watching some live shows. Broadway, with its honky tonks, and the studios of Music Row are both adjacent to the neighborhood; the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is an easy 15-minute walk.
How to Get There
This is probably one of the coolest hotels I've stayed in. The decor is outstanding, modern and there is an amp in the room, along with vinyls from local bands you can purchase. The entire hotel is just beautiful and it's conveniently located surrounded by restaurants and bars. They have a bar and coffee shop on the ground floor, as well as a rooftop bar for hanging out.
The staff was also super nice.
Fun and edgy interiors, perfect cleanliness and accommodating service. We only stayed one night but wish we could have stayed longer. Great location and easy to get Ubers or scooters. Very safe and overall great experience.
My mom, sister and I visited Nashville for the first and LOVED the Sunday brunch at the Thompson hotel! The staff was friendly, the food so delicious (we had avocado flatbread, egg white frittata and the People’s Choice cocoktails were amazing)! The view was also so pretty! Great service, food, drinks and atmosphere!
