LOVE TO WANDER
This is a fantastic hotel. If I could sum it up in one word, it would be "PERFECT." If I get the chance to add a few more words, I would pick: elegant, efficient and peaceful. It is the oldest hotel in Nashville and the first million $ hotel to be built here. "Meet me at the Hermitage" is what the locals say - you can certainly see why!
During the War of the Roses - the battle for the right for women to vote, it was the headquarters for both the suffragists (wearing yellow roses) and the anti-suffragists (wearing red roses.). The 19th amendment that gave all Americans women the right to vote was issued in August 1920. Tennessee was the hold-out state that was the last to make the perfect 36 needed to get the law changed.
It has a great bar with 130 bourbons on offer. During prohibition, they got away with continuing to serve bourbon by putting it into a teapot (!)
Room prices doubled during the NFL draft here this week-end - very glad we booked this trip up a year ago. You need to pre-book parking - there are various options on-line ranging from $15 - $35.
