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
We stayed at the Thompson for 3 nights. We called ahead to let the front desk know we would be arriving quite late for our check in. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a friendly smile. The check-in process was very quick. Our room had a neighborhood view which was helpful to check on the breakfast lines at Biscuit Love each morning! We did hear a little bit of the construction noise from the site next door but we discovered Thompson branded ear plugs in the nightstand drawer. We discovered little treats in our room each evening and even had fresh flowers and wine on our desk on Valentine's Day. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We stopped in to Killebrew each morning for coffee and breakfast. The king cake was amazing! Overall, our experience was excellent and we would recommend this hotel to others.
Great hotel and location. Staff was nice and killbrew coffee was great. The only downside is the cleaning one day didn't clean up all of the glassware from room service/etc. Other than that great stay.
I stayed at The thompson, this past Presidents Day weekend and had a great time. People at the lobby receive you with a smile and will answer any questions you may have. Housekeeping was great. I had dropped my jacket while going to my room and didnt noticed. Kirk from the 11th floor grabbed it and saved it for me! I appreciate that a lot. Hotel is pet friendly so i was able to stayed with my dachshund with no problems. There is No Pet Fee! 😊 Rooms are very spacious and bed was very comfortable.
The Marsh bartenders were great!. I think i had Paul helping me out and Cat. Paul made me a great spicy cocktail with pisco which i loved!! If you go ask for that!! Ill definitely be back in july and would recommend it to everyone.
Everything about the hotel was great, food, drinks, service, location. The only complaint was the lack of lighting in the rooms. Very dark and dim. Had to read in the bathroom because the lighting was so bad.
This was our first time to Nashville and we had no idea where to stay. After reviewing many hotels on line we decided on the Thompson. The location was in a good safe area of the city and within walking distance to many of the local attractions including the music bars on Broadway.
