Kimpton Opens Nashville Hotel Near Vanderbilt

NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Kimpton Aerston Hotel, located at the corner of 21st Avenue and Broadway in Nashville, has opened this summer. It is the boutique hotel company’s first venture into Music City and part of an expansion in the Southeast.

Many of new hotel’s 180 guest rooms, including 12 spacious suites, offer city and Vanderbilt campus views and a reprieve from the bustle of downtown.

On its eighth floor, Aertson Hotel has more than 6,500-square-feet of flexible meeting and event spaces to accommodate groups and parties of all sizes and occasions. The main attraction of the floor’s four meeting spaces is its 3,630-square-foot Patterson Ballroom, with floor-to-ceiling windows and a large wrap-around private outdoor terrace, providing unobstructed views of Music City.

For those looking to take their meetings and events to an upper floor, Aertson Hotel’s 17th floor indoor event space and private outdoor terrace accommodate up to 150 guests and provide 270-degree panoramic views of downtown Nashville. All of the events at Aertson Hotel feature chef-driven creative catering menus from Henley’s executive chef RJ Cooper, who brings award-winning restaurant experience to private events and meetings.

Guest amenities at Aertson Hotel include a mini bar with a hint of local flair; free Wi-Fi for Kimpton Karma Rewards members; complimentary morning coffee and tea service in the living room; hosted nightly social hour featuring local blends; and health-minded wellness options, such as complimentary custom PUBLIC Bikes rentals, 24-hour access to the hotel’s expansive fitness center and an in-room Gaiam yoga mat for use during a guest’s stay. Unique to Aertson Hotel, the eighth floor also features an outdoor swimming pool and cabanas, and the adjacent Woodhouse Spa is available to guests.

Just a few blocks from historic Music Row, Kimpton Aertson Hotel is the anchor of the new mixed-use complex Aertson Midtown, which has 350 high-end apartment residences and 35,000-square-feet of prime real estate that includes restaurants and shops.

Located in Nashville’s Midtown neighborhood, directly adjacent to Vanderbilt University, the project was named for Jan Aertson, the patriarch of the Vanderbilt family. Jan Aertson came to America in 1706, changing his name to Vanderbilt to honor the Dutch village from which he came, De Bilt.
