QUESTION: What is the Pet Policy at The Hermitage Hotel in Nashville?

A
NSWER: The Hermitage HotelCommissioned by 250 Nashvillians in 1908, The Hotel Hermitage (named after Andrew Jackson's Hermitage estate) opened its doors in 1910. The Hermitage Hotel was a symbol of Nashville's emergence as a major Southern city. For its first 50 years, it flourished in the heart of a city that repeatedly earned its rightful place in the nation's history books. The hotel became a social center for Nashville and a frequent stop for some of the nation's most prominent figures, from presidents and war heroes to actresses and gangsters.

In June 2000, Historic Hotels of Nashville, LLC, purchased The Hermitage Hotel with the goal of creating one of the finest small luxury hotels in the world through an extraordinary renovation of the guest rooms and public areas, and a commitment to achieving an uncompromising level of warm and friendly service. There are 122 luxurious guest rooms and suites. Thoughtfully and tastefully decorated, the feel of the guest rooms is richly residential. The hotel's restaurant, The Capitol Grille, focuses on the Farm to Table concept. The 106-seat restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and is a true celebration of southern taste.

An Early Checkout for the Flying Tomato

September 18, 2012
By: K. Clare Johnson

Guests at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel Nashville got an unexpectedly early wake-up call, allegedly thanks to Olympic snowboarder Shaun White. It's been reported that White, the two-time Olympic Gold medalist nicknamed "The Flying Tomato," pulled a fire alarm at the luxury property which caused an early morning evacuation on Sunday.  White fell and hit his head in the ensuing commotion, and was transported and then released from a local hospital.  The evening ended for White with an arrest for vandalism and public intoxication. 

Let's hope the other guests requested a late check-out time.
