Mary Margaret Harris | April 25, 2018

Hotels with the most unique experiences must have a key component that set it apart from other nearby hotels, whether it is an experience, a room feature, or amenities. From unusual requests available at the front desk to living large in luxurious penthouse suites, these Nashville hotels will give guests a reason to spend more time at the hotel.


21c Museum Hotel Nashville

Why it made the list

Naturally, this hotel provides guests with a unique experience unlike most considering its lobby is an art museum, which is free and open to the public everyday of the year. Original art hangs in every room and the dining room has its own installation, but for a truly singular experience, check into one of the themed suites. Those feeling creatively inspired by the art museum will love the art studio suite, which has a visual arts studio as well as a music studio.

The 404 Hotel

Why it made the list

Apart from the hotel's notable restaurant and bar program set in a shipping container, the 404 Hotel offers a level of privacy not easily found. Utilizing keyless entry, guests are administered individual access codes to the hotel as well as their room. With only four rooms, the intimate hotel is similar to a flat with a separate loft space which provides enough room for another guest.

Aertson Hotel by Kimpton

Why it made the list

This hotel also allows guests to quickly assimilate into the local atmosphere without giving up the traditional hotel experience.

An added health benefit of the wellness-minded hotel is the presence of a yoga mat in every room for easy access to a mindful morning of meditation.

SoBro Guest House

Why it made the list

Few hotels offer invisible service, but the Sobro Guest House is one of them.
