Central to All


This hotel in Midtown Nashville is close to it all

With Vanderbilt University to our west, Music Row to our east, and cultural moxie in every direction, Kimpton Aertson Hotel welcomes all creative spirits with a buzzy, residential rhythm.

Spend the day exploring the various neighborhoods surrounding Midtown, each with its own unique personalities. When the weather’s nice, join the locals out enjoying Nashville’s network of pedestrian and bike-friendly “greenways” — linear parks and trails alongside the city’s rivers, streams, ridges and railroads.

Begin the evening sipping bourbon at a Midtown bar or restaurant, maybe the wildly popular Catbird Seat. Speaking of birds, your next perch might be The Bluebird Cafe, the famed 90-seat listening room where big-name artists are often found chatting up songwriters. If storied honky tonks and neon lights are on your must-see list, they’re a neighborhood away on Lower Broadway and 2nd street.

No wonder Nashville was named one of the 50 Best Places to Travel in 2017 by Travel + Leisure. And ranked among Frommer’s Best Places to go in 2017. We look forward to helping you discover this multi-faceted city.
