The Hotel Hermitage Nashville, Tennessee
Commissioned by 250 Nashvillians in 1908, The Hotel Hermitage (named after Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage estate) opened its doors on Saturday, Sept. 17, 1910. The Hermitage Hotel was a symbol of Nashville’s emergence as a major Southern city. For its first 50 years, it flourished in the heart of a city that repeatedly earned its rightful place in the nation’s history books.
The hotel became a social center for Nashville and a frequent stop for some of the nation’s most prominent figures, from presidents and war heroes to actresses and gangsters. From the early 20th century through the ’30s and ’40s, “Meet Me at The Hermitage” could have been deemed the city’s slogan. The hotel changed hands several times in the ’80s and ’90s.
Then, in June 2000, Historic Hotels of Nashville, LLC, purchased The Hermitage Hotel with the goal of creating one of the finest small luxury hotels in the world through an extraordinary renovation of the guest rooms and public areas, and a commitment to achieving an uncompromising level of warm and friendly service. There are 122 luxurious guest rooms and suites. Thoughtfully and tastefully decorated, the feel of the guest rooms is richly residential.
The Hermitage Hotel offers 123 luxurious, over-sized guest rooms and suites, each equipped with a 27-inch television and luxury bathrooms. Superior double queen rooms provide spacious and elegant accommodations with two queen-sized beds. Superior king rooms offer one king-sized bed. Capitol view king rooms provide one king bed and views of Legislative Plaza and the Tennessee State Capitol building.
The hotel’s restaurant, The Capitol Grille, focuses on the “Farm to Table” concept and is ideal for Nashvillians “in the know”. The 106-seat restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and is a true celebration of southern taste. A private dining room is available.
