Swapping blues bar charm for new age chic, The Hutton is set right in the middle of Nashville, the song-writing capital of the world.
Nashville – the undisputed home of country music – has attracted music lovers to its honky-tonk bars and live venues since the early 20th century. Fiercely proud of its triumphant bass lines and misplaced sharps alike, its history is carefully documented in the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Johnny Cash Museum. Indeed, the iconic Grand Ole Opry’s stage show and broadcast is still going strong today. The hotel itself is located right in the middle of downtown meaning excellent access to all this and more.
All of the Hutton’s 247 rooms and 52 luxury suites feature custom-designed furnishings and contemporary interior design, epitomised by the stylish granite bathrooms and rain showers. Bold splashes of colour add character to clean lines and soft tones. The Cardio King is an interesting proposition with an in-room elliptical machine while suites, with floor-to-ceiling windows, invite city views in. They also come with a twice-daily maid service.
The Hutton’s 1808 Grille blends traditional Southern cuisine with international flavours as executive chef Jake Strang’s farm-to-table philosophy is realised with fresh, organic ingredients. Brunches include smoked salmon served on bagels, biscuits and gravy and chicken sausage hash while dinners are more gourmet affairs with dishes such as eggplant rollatini and sous vide duck breast. Designed to reflect the restaurant’s values, its interior features natural colours and reclaimed wood making for a relaxed atmosphere.
For those wanting a lighter morning snack, the Java Bar, located in the hotel lobby serves a selection of fresh fruit pastries, sandwiches and, as it name suggests, freshly brewed coffee. In the evening, the hotel bar has a robust selection of wines as well as a selection of spirits and premium beers. Taking you to the city’s sights – within a three-mile radius – there’s a courtesy eco-friendly hybrid vehicle while, back at the hotel, there’s a fully equipped gym with state of the art cardio and resistance equipment. The hotel’s spa also puts on a wide range of therapeutic options, especially good if you’ve been sampling Nashville’s famous whiskies.
