Bottom Line

The luxury Hutton Hotel is a modern and beautifully decorated property in Nashville’s Midtown, near Vanderbilt University. Its 247 thoughtfully decorated rooms are on the small side, but clean and functional with comfortable beds and lovely marble showers and distinctive glass vanities. Upscale touches include a spa, 24-hour room service, a fine-dining restaurant, free area shuttle service, and plenty of event space. Rates are expensive for a hotel not in downtown, but that’s not unusual for Vanderbilt-area properties. For a property with a downtown location and a deep history, travelers might prefer the Hermitage Hotel.

Oyster Hotel Review


Modern eco-friendly hotel attracting a mix of business travelers and tourists

The stylish lobby of this eco-friendly hotel has colorful interiors with designer-quality furniture and pieces that create an art gallery-like ambience

The Hutton is a modern, stylish hotel that opened in 2009. The bright and colorful lobby is thoughtfully decorated with designer-quality furniture and art pieces, and there's a wall of distinctive modern art and photography. The extensive use of sustainable bamboo flooring and wall paneling reflects the Hutton’s ambitious green initiatives that touch every aspect of its operations. The result is a soothing, art gallery-like ambiance, right down to the reception desks where arriving guests can sit in comfy armchairs as they check in. While serene, the lobby and adjacent bar area can become festive during the weekday evening wine receptions. Expect to see a diverse mix of both business travelers and tourists staying here. Locals also frequent the fine-dining 1808 Grille, and many area businesses use the hotel’s ample meeting spaces. 


Near Vanderbilt University and hospitals in Midtown, a short drive from downtown

Map of Hutton Hotel

The Hutton is located in Midtown, between Vanderbilt University and downtown Nashville, on busy West End Avenue and within walking distance of several bars and restaurants. It's a five-minute walk to the university’s western edge and a 15-minute walk (or six-minute ride on the hotel’s free shuttle) to the university’s medical center. Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital is a seven-minute walk away, and Centennial Medical Center takes six minutes by car. Centennial Park’s famous Parthenon is an eight-minute drive. Most of Nashville’s downtown attractions are about 10 minutes or so via the hotel shuttle, including the Nissan Stadium, the Tennessee State Capitol, the Bridgestone Arena, Music City Center, Printer’s Alley, the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, and the Music City Walk of Fame Park. Gaylord Opryland Hotel & Convention Center and Nashville International Airport are 20 to 25 minutes away by car, depending on traffic. 


Modern, chic, and upscale rooms with exceptional marble showers and glass vanities

The Deluxe Queen incorporates modern and chic decor elements such as padded leather headboards and contrasting patterns

Room decor at the Hutton Hotel is modern, chic, and upscale, highlighted by distinctive dark-brown and light-gray carpets with large floral patterns or thin stripes. There are dark-brown accent walls behind the beds, which contrast with the other light gray walls that match the carpets. Headboards are padded leather in the same bright white as the bedding. Black-and-crimson bed throws and bolster pillows add contrasting colors, as do hanging pendant lamps that glow a soft orange. All of this is rounded out by tan upholstered armchairs and natural-wood furniture that includes dressers, nightstands, and desks with media plug-in panels plus crimson upholstered chairs. All rooms have minibars, robes/slippers, laptop safes, and coffeemakers. Standard services include twice-daily housekeeping, nightly turndown, and 24-hour room service. 

Standard King and Double-Queen Deluxe units are on the small side, but clean and functional with comfortable beds. The King Suites have double sinks and separate living rooms with sofas and second 37-inch flat-screen TVs. The King Cardio room has its own elliptical machine, and the Forum Room includes a conference table with office chairs and a 50-inch flat-screen that’s wired for teleconferences and presentations. The East and West Penthouse Apartments are much larger, with wet bars, full-sized fridges, two bathrooms, 50-inch flat-screen TVs with surround sound, and spacious balconies

Bathrooms are exceptional, featuring polished brown-marble floors and walls framing the large walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads and glass doors. Transparent glass vanities have magnifying mirrors and LED lights that emit a warm glow. Molton Brown toiletries are provided.


Valet parking, free shuttle, free weekday wine reception, fine-dining restaurant, spa, meeting space

1808 Grille provides a chic space (including private rooms) for fine dining, serving all three meals

Features at the Hutton Hotel reflect its stylish, luxury status, and it hits almost every expected indulgence, aside from a pool. The full-service restaurant/bar serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but breakfast is not included in room rates except with select packages. The restaurant has private dining rooms for groups and an intimate bar. A coffee shop is also on-site and offers fruit, breakfast sandwiches, and pastries along with coffee drinks. Each floor also has a Nepresso machine for guest use with free gourmet coffee. There's also a free one-hour wine reception in the evening from Monday through Thursday. 

The on-site spa has two treatment rooms offering various massage and body treatments; in-room spa services can be arranged as well. A fitness center is equipped with a wide range of modern cardio and weight-training machines as well as free weights and yoga mats. The hotel has lots of meeting space that can be divided into up to nine separate rooms plus a business center with a computer and a printer. Standard Wi-Fi is free and accessible throughout the property, but there is a fee for premium Wi-Fi. A full-time concierge can arrange babysitting, valet dry cleaning, and laundry services. There's also a “critter concierge” that can arrange grooming and dog-walking services. Pets are welcome on certain floors for a fee, and special menus, bedding, and water bowls are available for pets. 

The Hutton offers valet and self-parking in its private garage, but both are expensive for a hotel outside downtown. The hotel also operates a free shuttle van within a three-mile radius that includes downtown and has a Tesla courtesy car it uses to shuttle guests. Electric-car charging stations are also available.
