Hot Hotel Openings

Thompson Nashville Opens

October 20, 2016 -

Thompson Hotels announces today as the official opening of Thompson Nashville, marking the brand's first property in the greater South and the first new-build, lifestyle hotel in Nashville.

The hotel is being ushered into Nashville by AJ Capital Partners and The Berger Company, premier investors, owners and developers of hospitality assets; along with Nashville-based MarketStreet Enterprises, the Master Developer of Music City's The Gulch neighborhood; Geolo Capital, co-owner of Thompson Hotels' parent brand Two Roads Hospitality; and ERG Enterprises, a global leader in distinctive project investments.

Located in the heart of The Gulch, the 224-key luxury boutique hotel has an exciting culinary partnership with Chef John Besh's Our House Hospitality (OHH), bringing a long-awaited upscale, lifestyle experience to Music City.

Thompson Nashville rises 12 stories and inhabits the ‘crown jewel' site within The Gulch, the city's most up-and-coming and vibrant neighborhood. Stationed at the intersection of 11th and 12th Avenues, the hotel's arrival completes the development of the city block that is the longtime home to legendary music venue The Station Inn. It's also within a mile of other top cultural attractions, including the Ryman Auditorium, and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Great Music, Good Jeans and High Spirits

The hotel will debut with a lineup of Nashville-based friends and collaborators to showcase the best of the city's offerings, including memorable music, cool fashion and quality cocktails.

Staying in tune with the soul of Music City, the nearby Third Man Records will contribute musical moments throughout the hotel. Guests can put a needle to the groove on a vintage turntable in the lobby thanks to a vinyl library stocked with Third Man releases; utilize a Third Man-designed map of neighborhood stops to take on the walk from the hotel to their record store; and purchase vinyl records from the hotel's minibar. At L.A. Jackson, the hotel's rooftop bar, the label will DJ a vinyl night every Monday evening.

On the fashion front, the hotel along with nationally acclaimed and locally adored premium denim brand imogene + willie are collaborating to offer guests an exclusive personal denim fitting and shopping experience. The package includes a one-on-one consultation with an imogene + willie denim specialist, an in-room fitting and styling session, and a pair of perfectly fitting, premium made imogene + willie jeans. Each pair of jeans purchased through the package will be authenticated with an imogene + willie x Thompson Nashville stamp, commemorating the guest's Nashville visit.

In room, guests will notice many local touches, but one they can sip on is a custom cocktail in the minibar from WithCO, a newly launched bottled cocktail company crafted by a group of Nashville entrepreneurs. The custom minibar offering features two bottled cocktail mixes created specifically for the hotel, made with fresh ingredients and no preservatives.

Locally-Inspired, Handcrafted Design

The story of the hotel's location is also told by a distinct design vision conceptualized and executed by award-winning studio Parts and Labor Design. The New York City-based studio created a concept that celebrates Nashville's creative spirit while also embracing a modern experience that is both nostalgic and fashion-forward. Upon entering the hotel, guests are greeted by a stunning inlay of a wooden compass rose, created by Patrick Hayes of the 1767 creative collection. The enormous piece is comprised of locally salvaged materials and also includes a brass detailing of the hotel's global coordinates, lending an immediate and precise sense of place. The lobby, which is filled with custom-designed light fixtures and furniture, embodies a vintage charm with a uniquely modern, creative slant.

Thoughtfully sourced and curated art can be found throughout the hotel, and includes work from local up-and-coming artists such as Frances Berry, Amanda Brazier and Chris Coleman, curated in collaboration with Art Advisory Services.

The hotel's spacious guestrooms include queen double and king rooms, suites, as well as a penthouse, which have a distinctly residential feel. All rooms boast floor-to-ceiling windows and warm, wooden floors, wallpaper from Flat Vernacular, as well as custom-designed rugs from a one-off collaboration between Tailor Made Textiles and Eskayel. Suites feature high-end wet bars and central hearths, which mirror the very soul of the hotel–one of warmth, social connection, and easy luxury. The residential nature of the guest rooms carries through to the bathrooms where guests will find graphic floor tile offset with milky toned white tile walls and a hand-selected sculpture. The suites' bathrooms add to this palette with a claw foot tub that is aligned with a view directly out to the guestrooms' expansive windows.

Gulf-to-Gulch Dining, Buzzworthy Cafe, and Skyline Views

Thompson Nashville's commitment to high quality cuisine is evident in the dining outlets overseen by John Besh's Our House Hospitality. Under the leadership of Executive Chef Nathan Duensing, the hotel features three distinctive dining options: signature restaurant Marsh House, Killebrew coffee shop, and rooftop bar L.A. Jackson. Seafood is the soul of Marsh House's menu, showcased in both classic and contemporary preparations under the direction of Chef de Cuisine Justin Cameron. Killebrew serves up pastries and Revelator Coffee, while shareable small plates, Southern beer and refreshing cocktails complement the skyline view of L.A. Jackson. Our House Hospitality will also offer in-room dining to the hotel's guests.

The hotel also hosts 6,185 square feet of meetings and events space on its second floor, comprised of three dedicated rooms and a 1,219-square-foot outdoor terrace. Floor-to-ceiling windows accentuate the open and airy nature of the space, and flower-like chandeliers and wood-clad thresholds gives this level a warmth and style of its own.

Thompson Nashville guest amenities and services include oversized Thompson signature robes, 49” LG TVs, custom honor bars with local offerings, 400-thread-count SFERRA linens, exclusive D.S. & Durga bath amenities, 24-hour access to the fitness center, complimentary Wi-Fi access, valet parking, and more.

Thompson Nashville's starting rates are from $399 a night. To celebrate the hotel's opening, Thompson Nashville will be offering a limited time introductory package of 20% savings on stays between October 2016 and January 2017, with rates starting at $247*.
