What You Need to Know 

The Look of The Fairlane Hotel

It's All in the Details

From the outside, The Fairlane Hotel looks like a typical skyscraper building with concrete walls and large glass windows. However, once you walk under the marquee over the front doors, you'll be greeted by the warm and welcoming natural light-filled lobby and common areas. And, depending on when you arrive, there may even be live music. 

Meanwhile, each guest room has a distinctly mid-century modern feel and a stylish color palette featuring deep dusty purples, vibrant emeralds, and sleek blacks. Even the smallest rooms – which clock in at just 266 square feet – have upgraded amenities like bedside charging ports, marble bathrooms, and minibars filled with local snacks.  

The Vibe at The Fairlane Hotel

The Fairlane Hotel has a truly adult vibe, and while kids are allowed here, the property is geared more to couples and those traveling with friends. Every morning, the Bagel Shop is bustling with guests sipping coffee and kombucha on tap. After taking in all that Nashville has to offer,  enjoy a leisurely dinner a the on-site Ellington's Restaurant, which is known for its elevated take on southern comfort food. Then, head up to the Bouquet Bar, which is a spring pop-up. The flower-adorned walls are an Instagram or TikTok dream, as are the cool cocktails and panoramic city views.
