Kimpton Aertson Hotel opened its doors in Nashville’s Midtown neighborhood across from Vanderbilt University and within two miles of many of the city’s business and leisure attractions. Its own unique gateway to the rhythm of Nashville, the hotel marks the boutique hotel company’s first venture in Music City and the expansion of its footprint in the Southeast.

Many of Kimpton Aertson Hotel’s 180 guest rooms, including 12 spacious suites, offer city and Vanderbilt campus views and all a welcome reprieve from the bustling streets of downtown. Upon entering the hotel, guests immediately feel a sense of genuine hospitality and community, thanks to Kimpton’s ‘luxury without the attitude’ approach.

“We are excited to open Aertson Hotel today, bringing our innovative and authentic boutique hotel experience to one of America’s most exciting cities, Nashville,” Mark Hayes, general manager said. “From the moment our guests arrive, they will be treated liked family, welcomed with a genuine smile and with locally tailored amenities at their fingertips.”

Located just a few blocks from historic Music Row, Kimpton Aertson Hotel is committed to embracing the local community and is partnering with Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), the world’s largest not-for-profit songwriters trade association, in their mission of protecting the rights of and serving aspiring and professional songwriters in all genres of music. In honor of the hotel’s partnership with (NSAI), the hotel welcomed its first guests, singer/songwriter Marcus Hummon and his wife, Becca Stevens.

The two well-respected organizations will offer NSAI’s Songwriter Rounds Experience as part of an event package that includes an exclusive discount for the Rounds Experience, complimentary event room rental and a complimentary post-show reception. The package will provide an unparalleled Music City experience for the Aertson’s meeting and event guests, while directly benefitting the songwriter community.

On its eighth floor, Aertson Hotel boasts more than 6,500 square feet of flexible meeting and event spaces to accommodate groups and parties of all sizes and occasions. The star of the floor’s four spaces is its stunning 3,630-square-foot Patterson Ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows and a large wrap-around private outdoor terrace, providing unobstructed views of Music City.

For those looking to take their meetings and events to even greater heights, Aertson Hotel’s 17th floor indoor event space and private outdoor terrace treats up to 150 guests to 270-degree panoramic views of downtown Nashville. All of the events at Aertson Hotel enjoy chef-driven creative catering menus from adjacent Kimpton restaurant, Henley, from James Beard Award-winning Executive Chef RJ Cooper.

Guest amenities at Aertson Hotel include all of Kimpton’s signature offerings, such as complimentary morning coffee and tea service in the living room; hosted nightly social hour featuring local blends; luxurious Atelier Bloem bath amenities; its “Forgot It? We’ve Got It!” menu of travel and vacation essentials; a thoughtful mini bar with a hint of local flair; free Wi-Fi for Kimpton Karma Rewards members; and health-minded wellness options, such as complimentary custom PUBLIC Bikes rentals, 24-hour access to the hotel’s expansive fitness center and an in-room Gaiam yoga mat for use during a guest’s stay.

Unique to Aertson Hotel, the 8th floor also features an outdoor swimming pool and cabanas to soak up the Southern sun, and the adjacent Woodhouse Spa will be available to guests for a bevy of pampering services from massages to manicures starting in the fall. As with all Kimpton properties, Aertson Hotel is pet-friendly, welcoming four-legged guests and providing them with their own services and amenities upon registration at no extra cost.
