SoBro—the area south of Broadway—is where you'll find the Country Music Hall of Fame, Bridgestone Arena, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, and Music City Center, the massive new convention complex. The Hyatt Place, which opened in 2013, is right in the middle of all the action. The rooms have sleek, modern decor and divided living and sleeping areas, as well as 42" HDTVs. Business travelers will appreciate the state-of-the-art work stations. And the location is hard to beat—restaurants such as The Southern Steak & Oyster and Sole Mio are close by, and you won’t have to walk far to reach Tootsie's, Robert’s Western World, or any of the many honky-tonks on Lower Broadway. Not feeling in a country mood? Cozy up to one of cowhide pillows in the lobby and see if that does the trick.
