Hotels in Tennessee

At first glance, this central West End Nashville property may look like a standard business hotel (its 15-story façade gives a somewhat generic first impression). Thoughtful design and at-the-ready service, though, lends a hip southern-meets-urban vibe inside.

About 25 minutes from Knoxville, Blackberry is like a south of the Mason-Dixon Line edition of a Currier & Ives print: ribbons of white fences, a pond stocked with catfish, and houses constructed from Tennessee fieldstone.

Vanderbilt’s recent $17-million renovation overhauled everything from the lobby and suites to the bathrooms, which now sport black granite countertops and Nashville-inspired graphic wall coverings.

Housed in a former train station, with spacious, whimsically decorated rooms.

The affordable property is made up of five architecturally unique guesthouses.

By far the city’s choicest digs—favored by country music stars since 1910—with a stained-glass ceiling, marble columns, and gilded plasterwork.
