5 Star Staff

Pros: The website described it perfectly as a thoughtful creation and intentional design.
Cannot rave enough on The Tennessean and their staff. I love the boutique hotels and this one did not disappoint. I would highly recommend dining in the Drawing Room. The staff were entertaining with delicious food & drinks. It's also within walking distance of other dining and shopping opportunities.

Class

Arriving at hotel was a pleasure. The hotel called me 2 days prior to my reservation to ask is there was any thing they could have ready for me They offered an early check in witch was great. The entire staff knew my name and would say hello Mr Karn whenever I was around. The room was nice and clean and the towels are the softest I have had There was a turndown service also. And each night when arriving back to my room the bed was turned down a small gift on the pillow and ice bucket was full. Also new towels were added. Class all the way I will be staying again.
