Why We Love This Hotel
- Heated igloos and curling lanes in the winter, plus an outdoor pool in the summer guarantees there's something fun to do year round
- Music meets art in the hotel's ongoing exhibit featuring works by Bernie Taupin, longtime collaborator to Elton John
- The hotel's location three blocks north of Broadway puts guests close to the action yet far enough away to sleep peacefully at night
Six minutes walking from Broadway and the Cumberland River, the Bobby Hotel blends Nashville's country-music roots with unexpected comforts like its full-service spa. Quirky accents such as a retrofitted 1956 Greyhound bus parked on the rooftop bar add to the Bobby's distinctive charm. Yet the hotel has also earned high marks from Food and Wine magazine, which described the roof as, "one of Nashville's best views."
Despite the Bobby's '50s rockabilly attitude, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen smart TVs and outlets with USB ports come standard in all rooms. Bathrooms are equipped with rainfall shower heads. Guests can also enjoy 24-hour access to the on-site gym.
Newcomers to Nashville should consider reserving a private tour of the city in the hotel's very own 1963 Lincoln Continental. However, we recommend booking in advance as space is limited -- that goes for the spa and rooftop igloos as well. After a day of exploring, swing in for a nightcap at Bobby's Garage Bar -- enter from Printers Alley -- featuring neon artwork by L.A. street artist Risk.
