Where to stay in Nashville

Stay in downtown, midtown, the west end, or near Vanderbilt to be at the center of it all in Nashville. You'll find plenty of boutique hotels and major chains in all of these areas, which give you great access to the downtown music scene and beyond. While you can find a bit of everything in downtown Nashville, from larger hotels to apartment rentals, keep in mind that more affordable, and often quainter, options are located further from Broadway. Travelers looking to spend most of their time at the Grand Ole Opry should consider accommodations in the Opryland or Music Valley area near the airport.

  • This place sucks, the time schedule messes up. We bought the combo ticket for both the hall of fame and the studio and we would like to visit these two places in two separate days, which the staff of the hall of fame says there will not be a problem. The result is that we have to be locked out of the door of RCA studio just because we are driving to the studio by ourselves instead of taking a shuttle bus from the hall of fame. Any way, strongly recommend that do not visit this place and the hall of fame in two separate days.
  • You can actually Feel the history that was made here... I am sure the Souls hold jam-sessions when the halls are quiet!
  • This was one of the most memorable trips of my life. We were taken to RCA Studio B, by a tour guide from the Music Hall of Fame. The depth of knowledge about the artists he demonstrated during the tour was literally the best I've come across. His energy and passion were amazing. Elvis of course in particular was the main talking point but also Dolly Parton and Jim Reeves. The studio will send shivers down your spine when the stories of the mega stars that recorded there are told. Nothing has changed at all. The red and green lights used by the King when he was recording his Christmas albums during summer, are still there today. If you visit Nashville and love music, this is an absolute must.
  • Nice place to visit, but small, relatively quick, and you don't need to know lots of things about country music to understand the tour, but it isn't really anything special though.
  • Really cool. Got to record some songs here. Very neat
