Kimpton Aertson Nashville
This chic, pet-friendly hotel opened in 2017 in the Vanderbilt University area (Jan Aertson was a Dutch ancestor of the Vanderbilts), one of the newest additions to the hotel scene, and just a few blocks from the city’s famed Music Row. The hotel has partnered with Nashville Songwriters Association International to offer discounts on rooms and complimentary receptions during events to NSAI members. The hotel lobby features contemporary artwork, and guests can enjoy the outdoor pool, white lounge chairs, and covered daybeds on the eighth-floor terrace that bring just a touch of South Beach to Nashville. The bathrooms of the cool and contemporary guest rooms are kitted out with subway tile and Edison bulbs, and the bedrooms have sleek midcentury lines. Exposed-concrete ceilings are softened with pops of cream and yellow in the furnishings. Guests can explore the city’s bike paths on a complimentary PUBLIC bike or make use of the in-room yoga mat.
