The Hermitage Hotel stands alone as the only grand hotel in Nashville. It is also the only “Beaux Arts” structure in Tennessee. Beaux Arts architecture was a big influence on American architecture from 1880 until 1920. This style of architecture was taught in Paris, and it makes the Hermitage stand out with great distinction.
The Hermitage was named in honor of Andrew Jackson’s estate. The restaurant, The Grille Room, was built by Germans imported for that purpose and in its day was a “Men’s Club”. The hotel was the hot spot and gathering place for high society in Nashville. The Hermitage was the headquarters for the sufferance movement, due to the fact that Tennessee’s deciding ballot gave women the right to vote.
The hotel hosted many big name bands during the 1930’s and 1940’s. Dinah Shore performed at the Hermitage Hotel in 1949. Minnesota Fats, the legendary pool player, had his own table there and challenged one and all to games.
The hotel received a massive makeover in 2003 and its grandeur, location and hospitality make it an obvious choice for many travelers. There are 123 guest rooms and suites with luxurious appointments. You can relax in a suite costing $299 a night right up to $2,000 a night. The list of amenities is endless.
