Mary Margaret Harris

Hotel Preston redefines and modernizes a 1970s hotel stay. From the contemporary exterior and modern furnishings to the red-walled front desk and eclectic art collection, the hotel provides guests with a stylishly vintage stay. With a fee, pets are welcome as well and are offered a bed, bowls, treats, and a toy among other amenities.


In spacious, rooms with vintage accents, guests will find everything needed for a comfortable stay including a television, high speed wifi, and in-room coffee and tea. Suites include a separate sitting area with a wet bar, complete with everything to mix your own cocktail, and a second bath. Treat your pet too with human-grade room service.


Outfitted with Terra Pure bath products and comfortable robes, the minimalist bathrooms provide guests with everything needed for the stay.


Backed by a red wall, the front desk is lined by photographs from the hotel's original art collection. Guests will find plenty of modern seating and lighting around the lobby, perfect perches for taking in the eccentric art.

To make the stay unique, request board games, a lava lamp, or a beta fish for company at the front desk.


While the outdoor pool is open to guests from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m., it is also open to the public during the spring and summer seasons. Volleyball, bocce ball, corn hole, table tennis, and horseshoes are also available for entertainment in the pool area.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Free pool parties are thrown from time to time and feature a pop-up bar.


The hotel does offer a complimentary gym with 24/7 access.


Café Isabella serves brunch everyday until 1:30 p.m., which is a perfect way to nurse a hangover or rest and relax after a long day of sightseeing. Guests can order room service from the restaurant or dine-in. The Italian cuisine features southern flare, as well as lighter options and a kids' menu.


Pink Slip opens with happy hour from 5-7 p.m. each night, and pours until midnight each weekday. Live, local music is another daily feature. With cheap drinks and talented acts, the scene is perfect for locals as well as visitors.


Getting Around

Free parking is available as well as a free shuttle to any destination within a 3-mile radius of Hotel Preston. Guests can utilize the shuttle to get to and from the airport, but will enjoy exploring Nashville without the burden of a car. An alternative option to driving downtown is to Uber, though the shuttle operates all day, everyday.


Enjoy a casual meal at Acme Feed & Seed (15-minute drive). For an evening of elevated Southern dining, make a reservation at Sean Brock's renowned restaurant, Husk (15-minute drive). For a more relaxed setting of locally-sourced Southern food, try The Farm House (15-minute drive), located across from the Country Music Hall of Fame.


Stroll along Honky Tonk Central (17-minute drive) for a drink, or visit Tequila Cowboy (15-minute drive), which was featured on ABC's television show "Nashville." Lovers of dive bars will rejoice at Santa's Pub (15-minute drive), which offers karaoke just off of Interstate 65.


Apart from the run-of-the-mill Nashville attractions, Hotel Preston is nearby the Lane Motor Museum, Hatch Show Print, and Jack White's Third Man Records. The hotel is unique, comfortable, and affordable while giving guests wider access to Nashville and all it has to offer. From check-in to checking out the local bands each night, guests will step back in time to experience Nashville as it once was.
