Fodor's Expert Review The Omni Nashville

250 Fifth Ave S, Nashville, Tennessee 37201, United States See on Map

Mary Margaret Harris

Sharing its lobby with the Country Music Hall of Fame and featuring local establishments like Bongo Java Coffee, the Omni is a one-stop destination for an immersive visit to Nashville. Sleek and modern, the Omni is a top-to-bottom celebration of Music City with a lobby that's subtly shaped like a guitar—complete with a ceiling structured like a guitar's fret-board—a sculpture made from drum cymbals, and other music-themed artwork and appointments throughout the property. Experience Nashville from the heart of Downtown while enjoying the Omni's luxurious amenities.

All 800 rooms provide guests with a comfortable, neutral living space including plenty of natural light with floor-to-ceiling windows and either a king bed or two queens. In addition to standard amenities such as a high-definition television, a desk, and plush, polished furnishings, guest will find artful notes that imitate the Music City.

The hotel's 54 suites are not only larger, but allow for breathtaking skyline views on higher floors. Many include a separate living room, but only the Luxury Suite includes an in-room laptop safe.

ADA accessible guest rooms are available.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Pets under 25lbs are welcome to stay with a non-refundable $100 cleaning fee.

All bathrooms are clean and spacious with granite countertops and either a walk-in shower or bathtub. Though all rooms feature a lighted vanity mirror, only suites include a double vanity and both a beige marble shower and soaking tub.

In ADA accessible rooms, guests will find a roll-in shower with mounted grab bars.


The shallow, but long lobby with warm hardwood accents and neutral marble floors is flood with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows along the entrance. Spacious blocks of seating designated by thick, red carpet are open to groups of guests, but to relax in a removed space from the foot traffic, step into the hotel's library, complete with a fireplace.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Wifi is only complimentary to Omni Hotel Select Guests, which travelers can become by signing up with an email on the hotel's website.


Retreat from the bustling streets to the hotel's rooftop pool, which includes a whirlpool as well as cabanas for sunbathing.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The pool is only open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.


A full-service spa is located on the fourth floor of the hotel. Visit the Mokara Spa website or call to schedule a single treatment or a full day of relaxation.


The hotel's expansive and impressive gym is open to guests at all times -- 24 hours per day. Apart from standard equipment, guests will enjoy access to stationary bikes, a bench press, a sit-up incline board, and a leg press.

Request a Get Fit Kit from the hotel concierge for in-room fitness. The kit includes a mat, hand weights, elastic bands, a towel, and water.


Serving three meals a day and then some, Kitchen Notes offers guests traditional Southern recipes made with the freshest ingredients at this casual farm-to-table restaurant. Guests love the biscuit bar, which is available throughout each day. For a light bite and a quality cup of coffee, stop in the hotel's café, Bongo Java, which serves from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. daily. Opening at 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, Bob's Steak and Chop House offers some of the country's highest quality steakhouse dishes.

Private dining is available at both Kitchen Notes and Bob's Steak and Chop House.


Barlines is the Omni's commendably authentic honky-tonk, featuring live music from top local talent seven nights a week.

amenities and services

The Five and TENN is a unique retail and performance space featuring Nashville designers' finest leather goods, chocolates, and live acoustic music on Saturdays. Standard guestrooms are relaxing, with plush bedding, floor-to-ceiling windows, HDTVs, and dark-wood furnishings.


Getting Around

The hotel's central location allows guests to walk to many of the downtown points of interest; however, public transportation can be caught at the corner of 5th Ave S and Demonbreun St, half a block from the hotel. Ubers are an easy and more direct option as well.

Valet parking is available for $38 per night with unlimited in-and-out privileges, but self-parking in an adjacent deck is also open to guests for $24 per day. Hourly valet beginning at $18 per four hours is an option for spa guests and those with restaurant reservations.


Start the day with a stroll through Music City Walk of Fame Park to a pastry and espresso at Tin Cup Coffee (13-minute walk). For a casual, crowd-pleasing lunch, stop in Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint (4-minute walk), which is catty-corner from the hotel. Plan to have dinner at The Farm House (5-minute walk) for healthy options as well as Southern classics.


Pinewood Social (13-minute walk) is a mainstay of Nashville's nightlife. If you can find it, Bar Sovereign (4-minute walk) is a speakeasy worth visiting for a cocktail. When the honky tonks are calling, Tootsie's Orchid Lounge (6-minute walk) is only a short walk away.


Though guest rooms may be bland, the space outfitted with plush furnishings provides travelers with a comfortable stay. Luxurious amenities, services, and hotel design are what make this hotel worth booking. Travelers will enjoy the central location and easy access to a host of Nashville experiences.
