12 Best Hotels in Nashville

How did it strike you on arrival?
If Justin Timberlake had a hotel doppelganger, it would be the Hutton—equal parts Southern sass and global rock ‘n roll. Nashville’s original boutique hotel has a well-designed, open-format lobby with various seating areas and striking art installations that lay the framework for a stylish stay.
Nice. What’s the crowd like?
Back before Nashville had a half-dozen luxury hotels, everybody who was everybody would stay at the Hutton when passing through town. During CMA Fest and any awards show, you could almost be guaranteed a celebrity sighting or three if you camped out in the lobby long enough. Case in point: I once found myself taking tequila shots with Norman Reedus in the Hutton’s lobby-adjacent bar.
