Set in the heart of Music Row, this trendy boutique hotel is a welcome innovation to Nashville’s hotel scene. Kimpton Aertson Hotel features well-furnished guest rooms with a flat-screen TV, minibar, seating area (in selected rooms), safety deposit box, and an ensuite bathroom with free toiletries. Another amazing feature of their guest rooms is the open-air balcony where you can soak up the city views and enjoy the sunset! Its proximity to the Vanderbilt University makes it an even sought after hotel. The on-site restaurant, Henley, is a favorite amongst locals and guests alike. Their chocolate soufflé is a must have! Guests can even relax in their rooftop pool on a hot day.

The posh, design oriented atmosphere at the hotel makes it visually pleasing, peaceful, and comfortable. Animal lovers will especially love the pet-friendly nature as there is no fee for any animal, no matter the size or species.

Kimpton Aertson Hotel is located in midtown Nashville, right in the heart of Music Row. It is also super close to Vanderbilt University, making it the most sought after hotel for people visiting the University. It is also just one block away from Nashville’s most famous hot chicken restaurant called Hattie B’s!

Arrival and Check-in Process

Check in – 4 pm | Check out – 11 am


If you’re coming directly from the airport then it will take about 20 minutes by car. We did rent a car from the airport but using Uber in Nashville is also equally convenient.

The check-in process was very smooth and we were highly impressed by the jovial nature of the staff present at the reception. They were very considerate in accommodating all our requests.

The Rooms at Kimpton Aertson Hotel

Corner King Room

The hotel has 180 guest rooms including traditional room, deluxe room and suites. We stayed in one of the corner rooms facing the beautiful city of Nashville. Some of the rooms come with a huge balcony where you can enjoy the sunset.

The rooms are designed keeping the minimalist style in mind, which creates a peaceful environment for the guests. The wooden bed frame, a comfy lounge chair and unique artwork adds a pop of color to each room. The king bed is super comfortable. And you can also request a refrigerator and coffeemaker for your room.

Their rooftop pool is the perfect place to relax on a hot summer day. Its cabanas, sitting area surrounding a fireplace, and both the lap pool as well as the shallow in-pool lounge chairs overlook Vanderbilt. The hotel’s restaurant, Henley, utilizes local ingredients and is a local favorite. We highly recommend their Chocolate Soufflé!

Since we love getting some workouts even during our vacation, we loved their fitness center as well. It is open all day, everyday and includes free weights, ellipticals, and balance balls among other quality equipments.



It is definitely a budget friendly hotel that gives you an ultimate boutique hotel experience right within the city of Nashville. You also get so many amenities when you book a stay there like a great rooftop pool, an outstanding on-site restaurant and beautiful open-air balconies in every room! What more could you ask for!

Final Thoughts

We really enjoyed staying at the Kimpton Aertson Hotel and it certainly made our trip to Nashville unforgettable. Whenever we visit Nashville next time, we’d love to stay there again since it offers such a unique experience that no other hotel in Nashville provides and that too within budget! What we loved the most was sitting in our balcony every morning and watching the sunrise while sipping on some delicious coffee. And oh, of course we loved how close it was to every attraction in Nashville.

Now that you have your accommodation for Nashville all sorted, it’s time to start planning your vacation!
