Unparalleled tradition, history, and glamour seep out of every nook and cranny at Nashville’s famous Hermitage Hotel. Built in 1910 in the classic Beaux Arts style, the Hermitage is the top choice for those who crave space, grandeur, and exceptional service. The lobby, with its marble columns, gilded plasterwork, and stained-glass ceiling, is the most magnificent in the city. The large rooms are plush, with down-filled duvets, large windows, and marble-floored but modern bathrooms. Want to watch TV while relaxing in your luxurious soaking tub? The staff will draw you a warm bath with a sprinkling of rose petals if you so desire. Silky bathrobes and slippers enhance the experience, and you can even choose your pillow from a menu. Northside rooms have stunning views of the state capitol. In the hotel’s lower level, the renowned Capitol Grille and the Oak Bar offer fine food and drink in stylish settings. If you want to relax at the bar, go early—it will fill up with politicians during legislative season as it’s always been a popular hangout for them: A Prohibition-era tunnel was said to have led from the bathroom to the nearby state Capitol so they could duck in easily for a drink between votes. Speaking of that bathroom: Make sure to take a peek at the green-and-black Art Deco men’s room (yes, even the ladies); the shoeshine platform is now a famous photo spot.
