The Thompson, Nashville's Luxury Boutique Hotel
The Thompson Hotel: location // 401 11th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203
The Thompson is a stunning luxury boutique hotel located in downtown Nashville, in a popular neighborhood called The Gulch. I stayed here a handful of times before I decided to move to Nashville and it’s hands down the best in town (catchy).
From the moment you walk in, you're greeted and spoiled by the most friendly, helpful, charming *ehm, and good looking* staff. The location can't be beat, the food is life changing, and they happen to have one of the best rooftop bars AND coffee shops in Nashville, which I'll talk more about in a bit. You could literally spend all day and night at this hotel and have a full Nashville experience. Every detail down to the decor is perfection.
Side note that must be noted: if you find yourself eating at this hotel, whether it's room service or at their restaurant downstairs, Marsh House... ORDER THE GRITS. This isn't a joke. Guys... their grits are unbelievable. Cheesy, creamy goodness that I could honestly bathe in... go ahead, feel free to visualize that. Sometimes when I’m hungover or simply craving grits, I’ll drive over to the Thompson and order a bowl and I leave SO HAPPY. The Korean fried chicken from Marsh House also deserves an honorable mention (ask for it on a salad, sandwich or on waffles!).
This hotel IS a little pricey, so if you’re in a big group looking for budget accommodation, then I’d suggest looking into an Airbnb house rental option. However at the very least, you must stop by for a coffee and delicious pastry at their downstairs coffee shop! There are a ton of cool spots if you come to this neighborhood, including biscuit love and the infamous WINGS mural!
Anyways, I'll let a few pictures try to put this hotel to justice:
