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
i booked this hotel thru American Express travel after my flight was cancelled and had to spend another night in Nashville. since it was thru AMEX i got a room upgrade to a corner room with a $100 credit. The check in was very nice and quick. The size of the hotel is perfect for my taste
I was here for a short time, but everything was exceptional. The friendly staff, the food, the service, the room... everything was top notch! The staff seemed genuinely happy to see us and help us, from valet to front desk to concierge to wait staff. The design and decor of the hotel, from entry to room was absolutely the best! They will be my first choice anytime I am in Nashville.
We had a wonderful stay and the staff and manager were fabulous! The food at LA Jackson was delicious as was Marsh House for breakfast! Well appointed rooms! Very accommodating environment all around!!
Overall the stay was okay, I did have a strange guy that kept coming to my door knocking multiple times in the night. Not sure if he had the wrong room, but it was a little alarming. I had to call the front desk to have them come and check it out. Other than that the hotel is really nice, I loved all the décor, the gym, and the rooftop bar. I would definitely stay again.
Everyone from the front desk to cleaning staff was friendly and went above and beyond! The location was great! Lobby always seemed busy but definitely tolerable. Great restaurants in walking distance!
