Aloft Nashville West End
This hip, lively and pet-friendly hotel is well-priced and handy to Vanderbilt University.
From its West End locale, the Aloft is convenient to Nashville’s downtown and the convention center. This boutique hotel is a rejuvenated, simple, contemporary structure that travelers might almost pass up if they didn’t know what great value it is. The modern rooms with minimalist décor provide a clean visual aesthetic, high-quality comfort and good work surfaces for the business traveler. The fundamentally neutral palette gets an occasional punch of accent color, but otherwise provides a restful ambience. From an eighth-floor guest patio, the view of downtown Nashville’s skyline is splendid, and the guest lounge within the hotel is set with plush chairs and emphasizes the hotel’s soothing color palette. Re:fuel by AloftSM sells grab-and-go snacks round the clock, while W XYZ Bar offers a casual social scene. A 3,000-square-foot penthouse suite features a full kitchen and living room, and has two rooftop balconies. Executive suites come with 32-inch plasma TVs, king-size beds and walk-in spa-style showers; a few are slightly larger, with 555 square feet of space and adjoining private terraces. This hotel is pet friendly and even holds pet parties from time to time. Both health club and business center operate 24 hours a day.
