Where to Stay in Nashville – a neighborhood guide

Hotel search

Nashville's all about spending nights drifting from one buzzing country music venue to the next, and days ambling around the wide tree-lined city streets, hunting through vintage clothing and guitar stores. With a mix of diverse neighborhoods - from bustling 24-hour energy to quaint small-town atmosphere - you’re sure to find the perfect place to stay. Nashville’s wide range of hotels offer accommodation suited to all tastes, whether it’s lavish luxury or cozy urban getaway.
Hotels in Downtown

 

 

In Downtown Nashville you’ll find a cluster of gleaming complex-style hotels. Stellar 3-star hotels boast indoor pools and fitness centers, and spacious guestrooms with perks like free WiFi. There’s also a few 4-star havens providing top-notch in-house dining, poolside bars and sweeping views across the sparkling Nashville skyline.

 

Midtown

 

 

Midtown - which takes in Broadway and Division Street - is a welcoming neighborhood lined with brightly painted low-rise storefronts, and a mouthwatering mix of authentic steakhouses, Cajun crab shacks, and speakeasy-style cocktail joints. Midtown feels more spacious than Downtown, with a number of lush green parks if you ever feel the need to escape the city’s urban energy.

If you’re after reliably comfortable and convenient accommodation, with spacious rooms and prompt service, stay in one of the smart chain hotels that are grouped at the top of West End Avenue, bordering Downtown. Some actually boast some funky Music City décor, from vintage jukeboxes to blinking neon signs.

 

Green Hills

 

 

Green Hills is a large suburban district around a 15-minute drive from Downtown Nashville. While it's removed from the classic Nashville landmarks, this area boasts a welcoming small-town vibe, where the friendly locals dine at quaint, family-run restaurants and diners, and listen to some of the city’s most authentic bluegrass and country music at the less touristy venues. Green Hills is also home to a huge mall full of designer names, ideal for splurging shoppers.

Because it's located outside the thronging Downtown epicenter of Nashville, there are fewer hotels to choose from in Green Hills. But what it lacks in quantity it certainly makes up for in quality, with stylish accommodation featuring bold modern decor, on-site restaurants, and outdoor swimming pools.

 

East Nashville

 

 

Cross the bridge over the mighty Cumberland River from Downtown, and find yourself in East Nashville, the up-and-coming counter-cultural hub of the city. Some have even called it Nashville's answer to New York's East Village, which shows just how hip it's become. You'll mingle with musicians and artists in the lively eateries and artisan ale drinking dens, and relish the contrast with the more commercial Downtown district.
