Thompson Nashville

Nashville, Tennessee

The hotel

Boutiquey and on a street buzzing with the bluegrass sounds of music mecca The Station Inn, Thompson Nashville is the latest luxury hotel opening in The Gulch. When you’re not exploring the district’s treasures, you can be viewing them through your bedroom’s floor-to-ceiling windows as you tap into its free WiFi, through the gym’s wall of glass, or from the rooftop bar with a cocktail in hand. Proud of their Nashville address, the team have curated treats which give an authentic taste of the region: there are the local flavours in your room’s minibar; the Alabaman coffee in its Killebrew café (which also promises a pastry counter of naughty accompaniments); and the menu of L.A. Jackson, which taps into the best Southern breweries, with their drinks served alongside sharing plates, tasty snacks, and classic dishes.

Let me start by saying the style of the hotel is fantastic. Very pretty. The beds are comfortable. The staff are very very sweet and helpful. This would be a good place to stay if you were going out for nightlife. For us since we are doing more Day activities it is not worth dealing with the night crowd to stay here. It is total chaos around here.… Read more
Let me start by saying the style of the hotel is fantastic. Very pretty. The beds are comfortable. The staff are very very sweet and helpful. This would be a good place to stay if you were going out for nightlife. For us since we are doing more Day activities it is not worth dealing with the night crowd to stay here. It is total chaos around here. Impossible to drive at night. Drunk people walking out into the street. Unable to make it a block in 15 minutes. So I would say further away if I wasn't interested in Nightlife. If you are interested in The Nightlife this is within walking distance. Now on to more important thing. Nobody here is wearing masks during the pandemic. People are all over each other in the streets walking less than a foot behind each other I am blocking sidewalks and crowding in the area with no masks. I thought okay fine we'll get to our hotel we won't be out again tonight so we won't have to deal with no masks. I walk into the lobby and none of the guests are wearing masks. People sitting on couches walking around talking. And 15 oh, this is not an exaggeration, girls in front of the only two elevators recording themselves doing a line dance. Not one of these girls was wearing masks and they were doing their line dance for, I kid you not, more than 1/2 hour. I know this because they were there when I came out and they were there when I came back down. I understand that the staff cannot police people. I'm sure they don't get paid enough for altercations with drunk people over them not caring about their own health or the health of others. That being said I wish there was some way to enforce this mask rule because nobody in this hotel cared at all about wearing except for the actual staff. Read less

Centrally located, personal and attentive service--the Thompson Nashville is THE VERY BEST hotel to stay in while visiting Nashville. Lots of restaurants/bars/boutiques within walking distance, and the view and service from the rooftop bar is superb!

While the Gulch has exploded with growth, The Thompson remains the best place to stay in Nashville. The hotel is beautiful, exceptionally maintained, and the customer service goes above and beyond, especially the concierge, Sean Fisher, whose Nashville knowledge and recommendations are spot on!
