The Hermitage Hotel, Nashville, TN
Nashville's first "million dollar hotel" opened its doors in September 1910. Designed by architect James Carpenter in the Beaux-arts style, The Hermitage—named for President Andrew Jackson's Hermitage estate—is one of the South's most historic hotels. The hotel was a meeting place for the suffrage movement and six U.S. President's have visited the hotel. Celebrity guests include Tina Turner, Bono, Clint Eastwood and George Lucas.
In 2002 the hotel closed and re-opened on Valentine's Day 2003 after $20 million in renovations. In June 2003 The Hermitage was featured in The Robb Report as one of the seven hotels featured in its "Best of the Best" issue along with Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris and Hotel Bel-Air in California.
There are two elegant rooms for brides and grooms to choose from for their wedding. The historic Grand Ballroom has an ornately painted ceiling and majestic Russian paneling, which is similar to the wood paneling on the ballroom of the RMS Titanic. The ballroom can seat up to 300 people. The second option is the Veranda. Overlooking Sixth Avenue in Nashville, the Veranda has high arched ceilings, faux-painted sky ceiling, French doors and is ideal for small weddings, with guest lists under 100.
