Hilton has announced the opening of Conrad Nashville, marking the debut of Conrad brand in the city.
Conrad Nashville is located in the heart of Midtown, just steps from Music Row.
Interior design by award-winning firm Champalimaud Design fuses Tennessee inspirations with modern touches to set the stage at Conrad Nashville. The bold and contemporary design references the scale and flow of classical architecture while exploring the theme of music made visible through rhythm, variation and materiality. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by a double-height lobby anchored by a jaw-dropping spiral staircase complete with a satin-finished brass balustrade inspired by musical instruments, inviting the ultimate “see-and-be-seen” moment for those descending from Conrad Nashville’s second floor meetings and celebration spaces.
Throughout the hotel, local artwork is prominent and harmonizes with a rich palette of dark woods, brass, bronze and neutral tones to capture the essence of Nashville’s warm and contemporary spirit.
The hotel features 234 guest rooms and suites including 5 wellness rooms, with average area of 450 square feet up to the Grand Suite at 3,000 square feet, which includes three bedrooms, a generous lounge, a freestanding soaking tub, a dining table for 10, a movie room and butler’s pantry. Each of Conrad Nashville’s sophisticated accommodations feature sweeping headboards, bespoke wall sconces and expansive wardrobes. Guests can unwind in luxury with soft Italian linens by Frette, marble bathrooms with double vanities, private water closets, rain showers and incredible amenities by Swedish brand Byredo, and a minimum 55” HDTV with state-of-the-art in-room controls. All suites at Conrad Nashville offer balconies, full size dressing rooms and sumptuous soaking tubs.
The Wellness Rooms, a standout feature of the property, are designed for the fitness-conscious traveler. Each room includes a Peloton bike, Echelon Reflect Fitness Mirror, a variety of free weights, yoga mat, and a minibar offering healthy alternatives. The rooms also provide an AtmosAir purification environment and an elevated aromatherapy bathroom experience by ZENTS.
Martin Wormull, General Manager of Conrad Nashville, said:

Cuisine at Conrad Nashville is helmed by Executive Chef Dwayne Edwards, with the hotel’s main restaurant, Blue Aster, named for the Tennessee wildflower, offering an innovative twist on modern Southern cuisine. Seasonal menus at Blue Aster focus heavily on a farm-to-table approach, sourcing ingredients from local and regional purveyors and farms, along with a selection of fresh seafood and a variety of local ranch steaks. With an elegant dining room and sidewalk-level terrace, Blue Aster serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and a signature weekend brunch, with highlights such as Hot Stone Ahi Tuna, King Crab Chitarra Pasta and Mac & Cheese Waffles.
The Lounge at Blue Aster provides a polished, contemporary space to enjoy fine Champagnes, iconic Southern cocktails and exceptional wines from its 2,500-bottle curated wine room, making it the perfect day-to-night destination. The Lounge also features an afternoon tea service with international teas, quintessential tea sandwiches, scones and delicate pastries.
On the third floor at Thistle & Rye, guests can enjoy live music, an indoor-outdoor bar, a large patio and windows overlooking bustling downtown Nashville. The menu at this beverage-centric concept also features globally inspired small plates, like Sugar Cane Shrimp Skewers, Pork Belly Bao Buns and Pomegranate Glazed Lamb Kofta, as well as approachable classics including Nashville’s Famous Hot Chicken Sliders and Fresh Lobster Rolls. Exclusive to hotel guests, the Pool Deckat Conrad Nashville draws from the menu at Thistle & Rye, alongside house-made gelato and gourmet ice pops.
Facilities at the hotel include an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness centre, business centre and multiple event spaces. The hotel’s 17,000 square feet of meetings and event space is designed with the guest in mind, offering a refined backdrop of floor-to-ceiling windows and a light, contemporary palette.
The Conrad Ballroom, at 6,370 square feet, and its adjacent 4,000 square foot outdoor terrace are the standout venues within the eight event spaces.
Matthew Schuyler, Chief Brand Officer, Hilton, said:
The opening of Conrad Nashville marks the third Conrad property to open so far in 2022, and the second in North America, following the acclaimed Conrad Tulum. The premier location allows travelers access to all the city has to offer, while the design and amenities offer a chance to connect with the hotel. Nashville’s hospitality market is growing exponentially, and Conrad Nashville jumpstarts Hilton’s energized commitment to the destination, with multiple properties and brands in the portfolio opening through 2024.
Lately, Nashville has been getting a lot of new luxury hotels. In 2021, Hyatt opened Hyatt Centric Downtown Nashville while Marriott opened W Nashville. This year, Four Seasons too will open its property in Nashville.
