Known as Music City, you can see it for a song at many different cheap Nashville hotels or glam it up like a rock star at luxurious lodgings (just don’t trash your room). Whether visiting the Country Music Capital of the World for an audition or just as a fan, the Nashville hotel that’s right for you is likely in the West End, which houses Music Row. This is the scene where “Nashvegas” comes to life with up-and-coming bands, partying, neon, and especially rhinestone.
Hot Nashville Spots
From there, follow the Music Mile to downtown, where Nashville hotels put you in close proximity to the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, and prime shopping and dining. Historic Printer’s Alley and The District, with their museums, boutiques—and, of course—music venues, are close to your room, as is Riverfront Park, where barbecue and other holiday festivals are held on the Cumberland’s banks.
If you can’t hold a tune but like to shop, make reservations at hotels in Nashville near the site of Opryland. The theme park is gone, but the largest megamall in the Southeast sits on the grounds with outlet deals and upscale offerings. And nearby is Music City’s most iconic spot, the Grand Ole Opry, where you can still see classic acts and hot new artists.
If you want to branch out to a hotel in Nashville in the neighboring suburbs, Franklin is known for small-town charm and antiquing, or go for the sophistication of one of the area’s nicest communities in Brentwood.
