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 was our first stay at Thw Thompson. We had great service from the staff on our visit. Rina, Lana and Adam, in particular, went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. The Gulch is a neat area.
Love the location, hip and trendy with a great coffee shop and restaurant. extremely clean and staff was amazing and helpful. two small things on the wish list - fluffier pillows and it was very noisy with street traffic. we just downloaded a white noise app and it took care of noise issue. Would definitely stay again.
Amazing stay- friendly staff, great atmosphere and location. The Marsh Restaurant has an excellent breakfast. All in all a wonderful hotel that couldn’t have been better! Will definitely return next time we visit Nashville.
We had an awesome time at the Thompson Nashville. When we arrived in our room they had a special card, flowers and treats wishing us a Happy Anniversary. From the front desk staff like Bethany on our arrival to the housekeepers to the wait staff at Marsh house, baristas at Killebrew and bartenders at la Jackson, all were superb! Clean rooms and a super fun spot! Can't wait to come visit again!
We want s to celebrate our anniversary in downtown Nashville. We live here but decided to have a ‘stay cation’, and stay at The Thompson. The service was perfect and our dinner at The Marsh (the restaurant at the hotel) was delicious!
