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 were attending the SEC basketball tournament at Bridgestone arena and was looking for a hotel within walking distance. Our check-in couldn't have been any better. Kirsten and Rina were more than helpful in answering our questions and even getting us an upgrade to a city view room. They were really pleasant and nice. The rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable. Food and entertainment were all around so no need to use your car. The food in the restaurant was delicious. The staff there was so helpful even helping us to locate a lost phone. We had a great time! Hope we can stay there for the next tournament.
The gulch is a hot hip area of Nashville close to downtown and broadway. Lots to do shopping ,eating and drinking nearby.
The hotel is very hip with a small comfortable lobby. Bellmen immediately greet you, then a Great front desk staff checks you in. So friendly.
The stylish and comfortable rooms have Nashville city views. Bathrooms have plenty of space to set up your makeup and travel bags, great lighting. The beds were very comfortable with a large desk and chairs as well. Loved the bathrobes.
The rooftop bar was a great way to watch the sunset or close the night with a dj.
The Thompson is located in The Gulch area of Nashville and has many great shops and restaurants!!! Biscuit Love and Milk & Honey are great for Breakfast. The rooftop patio at the hotel is a fabulous place to relax and have a few cocktails after shopping the cute boutiques in the area!
We visited the Thompson Nashville for our honeymoon, and they made our stay very special! Starting from the prompt check-in experience, the service was impeccable at every turn. The hotel would periodically check in with us, making sure everything was to our satisfaction via text. They even left us a gift in the room to help celebrate our special occasion! The rooms are modern, hip and very comfortable and we made use of the retro Bluetooth speaker everyday. We tried both restaurants in the hotel and they were fantastic...the hotel gym looked great, but admittedly we never tested it out lol. It’s located in one of the newest trendy areas of Nashville and with so much nearby, we never needed a car. Will definitely be coming back soon!
We loved our stay at this hotel! Friendly/professional staff, fast service, clean, modern rooms, very conveniently located, and the drinks from the bar were just WOW! Would definitely stay here again! Our baby girl had a blast in Nashville too! :-)
