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
After a terrible experience with Airbnb, we arrived on Thompson Nashville's doorstep without a reservation. Not only did they upgrade our room without solicitation but the lovely women at the front desk gifted us with a gorgeous bottle of rose and an adorable note. It made a world of difference
My wife and I found this hotel after another hotel canceled our reservation without telling us. So we were stranded in Nashville searching for a hotel and found The Thompson. We got there before our room was ready so we took advantage of the rooftop bar. Excellent view and great drink selection. The room was incredible. Tall ceilings and hardwood floors. The shower was huge! Would definitely stay here again.
Just love the Thompson! The staff could not be better! They smile and welcome you and every turn and will do whatever they can to accommodate you as a guest! We have stayed here at least 4 times in 2 years and love it more each time! The rooms are beautiful! Spacious! Unique! The rooftop is tons of fun! The coffee I lobby is amazing! And the location in the Gulch makes it perfect! Can’t wait to return!
