A super modern, super stylish hotel in the heart of Music City, Virgin Hotels Nashville brings a carefree sense of fun and vivacity that few other hotels can match.

Fun is the watchword here. When Virgin Hotels Nashville opened, it ignited a whole new social scene. Commanding the lion’s share of the attention is the Pool Club on the 14th floor. DJs whip up a party atmosphere as guests pose with cocktails under candy-striped umbrellas or float on lilos. The adjoining rooftop restaurant serves an expansive menu, so if the mood takes you, there’s no reason not to while away a whole day here. Downstairs, there’s a more elegant scene in the form of the Commons Club. Here, an acclaimed chef rustles up a seriously delectable menu that will have you wanting to return night after night. The layout of the smart and comfy bedrooms has been reimagined to work better for guests. That means there’s a standalone vanity with decent lighting in a dedicated dressing area that can be closed off from the sleeping zone. What’s more, the ‘Lucy’ app not only magics you access to your guestroom but controls the temperature, lights, and TV, as well as order room service. Refreshingly, minibar items cost the same as what they would in a local shop. Virgin Hotels Nashville lines up good night’s sleep thanks to ultra-comfy beds. After a peaceful slumber, head to Funny Library, the hotel’s coffee shop, for breakfast and a delicious chai latte.
