Located conveniently between the Gulch and downtown, this sparkling, oval-shaped glass tower howses Music City's newest and swankiest option, which opened in the summer of 2018. The views are indisputably the best in town from the city's tallest hotel, especially from the rooftop restaurant, Bourbon Steak, on the 34th floor. The rooms are modern and comfortable with marble bathrooms and floor to ceiling windows, but make sure to request a downtown-facing room if it's the skyline you're after; the view to the west is relatively flat. The hotel has a distinctly upscale Las Vegas feel, which will serve visitors looking for the "Nashvegas" experience well. The restaurants here are nothing to write home about, so if you're going to eat here, pay the premium to do it at Bourbon Steak. The view, service and food are five-star, which makes sense since it's the brain child of celebrity chef Michael Mina. While the hotel's service is top-notch, if I were going to stay in a big, corportate property in Nashville, I'd pick the Omni every time. Even though it's a few years older, the extras are simply superior with its on-site attractions and tasty casual restaurants.
