Why we recommend The Thompson: The downtown area known as "The Gulch" has been the go-to spot for Nashvillians the last few years for dining and music and even taking up residence (a number of high-rise condos have come to the area and offered up living spaces with jaw-dropping city views). Now travelers can get in on the action in this vibrant and beautiful neighborhood with the coming of the luxury boutique hotel, The Thompson Nashville. Modern, elegant, and brand new, The Thompson opened it doors in the fall of 2016. It joins an elite group of luxury properties in world-class cities—New York, Toronto, Seattle, and Chicago.
Nestled between Music Row and the downtown honky tonks that line lower Broadway, The Thompson sits in one of the best walkable areas in the city. The Gulch is an urban hub of restaurants, bars, breweries, and nightlife—including Station Inn (live music venue for Bluegrass, Americana, and Country Music artists), Yazoo Brewing Company, Whiskey Kitchen, Watermark restaurant, Sambuca restaurant, Urban Outfitters, Frye Boots, Two Old Hippies (retail), The Turnip Truck Urban fare (fresh produce, sandwiches & soup, juice bar), Colts Chocolates, Biscuit Love restaurant, and 404 Kitchen restaurant. Whether you’re looking to shop, enjoy a meal or a really cool place to stay while attending the CMA Music Festival, the Thompson is a wonderful choice.
