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
Three couples from Nashville enjoyed a Staycation based here. The Thompson was walking distance from key museums, the Adele restaurant, and Rudy’s Jazz room. The hotel itself was splendid and fun. A group in the lobby were setting out on a Onesies Bar Crawl - highlights were two guys in Elvis onsies, one guy dressed in a pink bunny rabbit onesie. Hilarious! The Hotel’s rooftop bar was filled with energetic young people - our group was far outside the ‘demo,’ but it was still fun.
Great hotel, cool rooftop bar. Service is excellent— staff really friendly. If you’re looking for a great spot away from the strip of Broadway, but still walking distance to the arena, Broadway and lots of cool Nashville attractions , this is a winner.
I would highly recommend this place. Everything exceeded expectations except for a service quality at the rooftop bar. The beds aren’t very comfortable, but the rooms are nice. Bathrooms are very nice. Loved getting coffee at the coffee shop downstairs, great service there as well. Would highly recommend this place only exception is the hard beds.
Very impressed, beautiful place.... was impressed with the location, the staff, the property was awesome!!!! The Gulch is a fantastic place full of quaint little shops and restaurants. I want to come back and spend the weekend there just to walk around. I will definitely stay at the Thompson Nashville again.
Recent weekend trip to Nashville for a wedding and stay at Thompson hotel. Excellent
experience from curb service to restaurant servers. A special thank you to Matt, front office manager, for his actions to help my cousin with her Uber ride.
This place is a must stay in Nashville.
