The Lowdown

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.

Rod Stewart is wonderful! From the moment he met us at the door, until our departure, he was kind, friendly, and extremely helpful! First class young man...plus he has an awesome name!
The food in your restaurant was delicious. The grits were our favorite! The pastries in the coffee shop were the best ever!
We will always stay at The Thompson! Wonderful experience!

Quiet, amazing area. Perfect to get away from downtown. Food and bars in area were awesome. Rooftop bar here is a must! We loved the service! Only thing that would have made this place better was a pool and a spa.

The best!

Everything was on point! The hotel lobby, restaurant, rooftop, rooms, staff. It was all top notch, everyone seemed to enjoy being on the property. Gorgeously designed and comfortable rooms. Delicious drinks and food. Great location and in the center of the Gulch.

This is a new property in the Gulch area of Nashville. Highlights for me: fantastic staff, great vibe and accommodations, rooms all have a new mid-mod vibe. Can't recommend it high enough. It was an all around good experience in a great location. The Gulch has plenty of restaurant, retail shopping, and bars to choose from - all within walking distance. The Broadway/ downtown area is a short scooter or uber ride (~7-10 mins). You could also walk over to Music Row.

This could be the best hotel in Nashville

From the minute you walk in you feel like you are being greeted and welcomed to a first class facility. The staff bends over backwards to make sure you are helped and treated in a very friendly way. Rooms are clean, fresh and current which makes it nicer than some of chains that constantly are having to update the décor. This is a people first place, and the price is not for the penny pinchers out there. It feels like a High End Los Angeles Hotel located in Nashville.
