Nashville, Tennessee, serves as the state's capital and largest metropolitan area. It is the home of country music and annually hosts the Country Music Association Awards, the CMA Music Festival and the Country Music Marathon. Guests come from all over the world to visit the city's many attractions and historical areas as well as to see sporting events. Hotels are scattered throughout Nashville, from downtown to suburban locations, to provide visitors with convenient access to the city's most popular tourist areas.

Downtown

The trendy Hutton Hotel is located in downtown Nashville in the city center. The hotel is convenient to each of Nashville's three nationally recognized historical districts and the riverfront entertainment district. Recognized as a Trip Advisor Traveler's Choice Hotel and a Conde Nast Hot List pick, the Hutton offers luxury accommodations for travelers of all interests. Vacationers will enjoy the hotel's penthouse apartments complete with 50-inch television, surround sound and steam shower, while downtown business travelers benefit from Hutton's forum rooms with 10-seat conference tables. Guests who prefer privacy can opt for a cardio room equipped with a private fitness machine and access to 24-hour in-room dining services. The Hutton encourages guests to incorporate sustainable living habits by including eco-friendly design elements, water conservation, thermal insulation and energy-efficient technology.

Airport

The Sheraton Music City Airport is just five minutes from Nashville International Airport. The Sheraton offers its guests round-trip transfers to the airport every half-hour. Furthermore, a park-and-fly package includes one night of accommodations, seven days of free parking and free airport shuttle service. Spacious rooms at the hotel feature private balconies and patios, and a 24-hour market/sundry shop sells toiletries and other items guests may have forgotten.

Grand Ole Opry

The famous Grand Ole Opry is the grandfather of country music. With roots that date back to the mid-1920s, today the area serves as a major attraction for country music fans from all over the world. The Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center is located in close proximity to the Grand Ole Opry, as well as Gaylord Springs Golf Links, General Jackson Showboat and the Ryman Auditorium.

The Gaylord Opryland offers the Night at the Opry package, which includes overnight accommodations, preferred seats at the Opry and a tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Suburbs

Though Nashville is home to many attractions, the suburbs are equally inviting. Nissan's North American headquarters and the NASCAR Nashville Superspeedway are just two of the attractions located outside the Nashville city limits. The Hampton Inn & Suites is, the Nashville suburb of Lebanon, is conveniently close to both the Nashville Superspeedway and Lebanon Municipal Airport. The hotel offers on-site laundry services, complimentary beverages and baggage storage. The Hampton provides both fitness and business centers and is just four miles from the Nashville city center.
