One block from the state capital and three blocks from the Ryman Theatre and the Johnny Cash Museum, the downtown DoubleTree is very accessible to everything the area has to offer.

The entire hotel is in compliance with ADA guidelines; therefore, it is completely accessible to all impaired guests.
Smart and spacious bathrooms feature granite counters and a walk-in shower.
The sophisticated lobby is modern with vintage flare. Flower arrangements punctuate the pressed tin front desk, and books line the shelves for guests to read. Vinyl is also stacked near the lobby's record player so guests can choose a song or album.

The hotel does have a fitness center with standard equipment such as free weights, treadmills, and ellipticals.
For quick bites and snacks, there is a 24-hour snack bar and market as well as a Starbucks in the lobby of the hotel. One of the hotel's two restaurants, Fourth & U, serves American favorites such as wraps, pasta, and steak. Patio 315, an outdoor restaurant with fire pits and lawn tables, is open for lunch and dinner.
