The twang of country music is not the only sound you will hear wafting through your Nashville hotel window in “Music City USA.” Nashville hosts many blues, jazz and rock venues in addition to being the home of country’s Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium and Museum and Country Music Hall of Fame.
Also known as the “Athens of the South” because of its dozens of universities and colleges, Nashville offers a unique mix of sophistication and “down-home” hospitality. Marriott hotel guests in Nashville will appreciate this diversity, especially in the dining scene. Mouth-watering barbecue at Capitol Grille is always a visitor and local favorite, but you can also find neo-Southern and Mediterranean dishes at F. Scott's Restaurant & Jazz Bar or true Southern comfort food at Swett’s Restaurant.
Nashville hotels, restaurants and shopping venues are top-notch, but the music scene keeps visitors enthralled with the city. Landmark establishments like the Grand Ole Opry and Bluebird Café spawned many great country music stars, while Elliston Place Rock Block boasts several spots for heart-pumping dance music and live rock. If you leave your Nashville Marriot hotel seeking the blues, then Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar always delivers in the hip Printer Alley District.
