Hotel lacks a pool
In Midtown on busy West End Avenue, the upscale Hutton Hotel is a 10-minute walk from Music Row and Vanderbilt University, and a 10-minute drive from downtown Nashville. Renovated in 2017, the hotel’s striking, modern interiors start in the beautiful lobby lounge and extend through to the 250 contemporary guest rooms, which feature flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, minibars, and marble rainfall showers, but no coffeemakers. Upgraded rooms add living areas, and some high-floors rooms have Nashville skyline views. WestEnd Kitchen and Bar serves classic Southern dishes, while WestEnd Coffee Bar has to-go coffee and pastries. Keeping with the musical area, sprawling Analog bar offers regular live music. There’s a 24-hour gym and a small spa, but no pool. For a downtown property with similar rates and amenities, consider the Hotel Indigo Nashville.
Chic, modern hotel that pays homage to Nashville’s creative spirit
Set in a landmark 1970s office building towering over busy West End Avenue, the hip Hutton Hotel opened in 2008 as a lifestyle hotel drawing a mix of leisure and business travelers. Top-to-bottom renovations in 2017 by renowned Studio 11 Design added beautiful public spaces and decor that reminds guests at every turn that they’re in Music City. The hotel counts plenty of creative types among its clientele, thanks to features like public Writers' Rooms equipped for artists and musicians, as well a cool Vinyl Lounge off the lobby with a curated selection of records spanning several decades. Outfitted with plush sofas, leather seating, and rich hardwood floors, the beautiful lobby flows seamlessly into the airy WestEnd Kitchen and Bar. There’s plenty of space for guests to quietly lounge during the day. Visitors can expect to see four-legged guests wandering through, thanks to the hotel’s pet-friendly policies and amenities. The lobby and bar become livelier as the day goes on, particularly as the free evening guest reception start and locals stop by for drinks and dinner after finishing work at the nearby university and offices. The cool factor skyrockets at Analog, the hotel’s massive, ultra hip live music venue in a former parking garage that serves up high-end cocktails on two floors of dark nooks and crannies with eclectic furnishings. When particularly popular acts take the stage, the line can be down the block.
On busy West End Avenue in Midtown, a short walk from Music Row and Vanderbilt University
Straddling Midtown and the West End, Hutton Hotel is within a few minutes’ walk from the bars and restaurants of both lively neighborhoods, including the iconic Hattie B’s hot chicken joint, a block away. Guests can walk to both the Vanderbilt University campus and the recording studios of famous Music Row in under 10 minutes. A five-minute drive away is sprawling Centennial Park, home to a full-scale replica of the Parthenon in Athens, built in 1897. A 10-minute drive takes guests to the top attractions of downtown Nashville, including the famous honky-tonks of Broadway, Ryman Auditorium, the Johnny Cash Museum, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and Nissan Stadium, home of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans. The world-famous Grand Ole Opry and the Gaylord Opryland Hotel & Convention Center are about a 20-minute drive away. Nashville International Airport can be reached by car in 15 to 25 minutes, depending on traffic.
Chic, modern rooms featuring bathrooms with impressive marble showers
Clean decor lines and polished furnishings are balanced by deep gray carpets with vibrant blue geometric lines and bright blue pendant lamps that add a welcome pop of color to the hotel’s modern but subdued rooms. Free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs come standard, as do minibars and snack drawers stocked with locally made items (fees apply), though rooms notably lack coffeemakers. Rental record players are available, along with records on loan from the hotel’s curated vinyl collection. Upgraded rooms add sitting areas featuring gray sofas or chairs with colorful accent pillows. Suites offer similar furnishings in separate living rooms with second flat-screen TVs. Nightly turndown service is a nice perk.
Closets come equipped with plush robes and slippers, umbrellas, luggage racks, irons, and ironing boards. The bathrooms in even the standard rooms are impressive, with distinctive see-through molded glass vanities and marble rainfall showers. Hairdryers and Triumph & Disaster toiletries come standard. Luxurious steam showers are offered in some suites. All rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, and some on higher floors offer excellent views of downtown Nashville.
A Southern restaurant/bar, coffee counter, and a cool live music venue -- plus a fitness center and a spa
Hutton Hotel’s hip features give visitors a taste of Nashville’s Southern, music-centric culture. Blending seamlessly into the chic lobby lounge, the airy WestEnd Kitchen and Bar serves creative takes on classic Southern dishes, and features two private dining rooms, 24-hour room service, and a large bar that hosts free evening receptions for guests. Beside it, the WestEnd Coffee Bar sells Brooklyn-based Parlor coffee and a variety of pastries to go. Entering Nashville’s thriving live music scene in 2017, the ultracool, 5,000-square-foot Analog serves inventive cocktails on two eclectically furnished floors of a converted parking garage, centered around a main stage that showcases a range of local acts, sometimes drawing crowds that line up down the block.
The creative, music-centric vibe continues in the lobby’s Vinyl Lounge, featuring a turntable and a curated record library, as well as in the Writers’ Rooms, creative spaces outfitted with equipment for artists, writers, and musicians. A large 24-hour fitness center features a pair of Peloton bikes, TRX equipment, TRUE and PreCor cardio machines, and free weights. The spa offers two treatment rooms and a range of massage services, which can also be ordered in-room. There’s over 13,000 square feet of meeting space and a 24-hour business center.
Pets are welcome for a fee, which covers pet-friendly amenities like water and food bowls, leashes, toys, and organic pet treats. A free shuttle is available to take guests to popular attractions, and a Tesla courtesy car is offered on a first-come-first-served basis for trips within three miles. Valet and self-parking, including electric car charging stations, are available 24/7 for a fee in the on-site private garage. Remote airline check-in and luggage transportation is free for guests.
