Nashville is most-known for its role in country music, boasting its fair share of stars and a rich history. Elvis Presley recorded over 200 songs in Nashville, and it’s the birthplace of William Walker, the only American who’s ever served as president of another country — in his case, Nicaragua!
This gorgeous city has so much to offer, from its local cuisine to the variety of dog-friendly parks in the area.
If you don’t want to explore this bustling city on your own, here are seven pet-friendly hotels you can stay at with your furry best friend!
1. Kimpton Aertson Hotel
This modern hotel is complete with a rooftop pool, 24/7 fitness center, and large windows looking out at the beautiful Nashville view. Perfect for active pet parents who want to see the sights! The hotel also offers pet sitting and dog walking through their pet partner program.
With no pet restrictions, Kimpton Aertson is the perfect place to stay with your large dogs or bully breeds that may not be accepted elsewhere. Several dog-friendly parks nearby offer a place for your pup to stretch their legs and enjoy the fresh Tennessee air.
2. Thompson Nashville
Thompson Nashville sits in a prime location in the city with plenty of shops, gyms, and eateries within walking distance, whether you want to explore the glamorous Tennessee nightlife or sample the local restaurants. It’s also close to Broadway—and you can see it all with your furbaby by your side.
The hotel has a two-dog limit with a weight limit of 40 pounds for one pup or a combined 50 pounds if you’re bringing two pooches along for the ride.
Though there is no pet fee, you do have to let them know ahead of time that you’ll be bringing your pet and sign a pet agreement upon arrival.
3. Bobby Hotel
Bobby Hotel offers large, unique rooms for you and your pet. Even better, you can access several amenities without even leaving the building—including restaurants, bars, and a retrofitted party bus on the roof!
They allow dogs in your room, the lobby, and the café, with no mention of other pets. You’ll pay a $50 fee per dog and can stay with up to two puppers.
Bobby’s knows how to treat a dog right, with services for your furry friend, including a meet-and-greet in the lobby with a pup named Hairy and bowls and beds upon request.
Noelle is a warm and inviting hotel that boasts a true Nashville experience for guests and their dogs! Unfortunately, cats aren’t allowed to stay in these gorgeous rooms.
You’ll pay a $100 cleaning fee to stay with up to two pups so long as they weigh under 40 pounds. The rooms contain dog beds and bowls, and your pupper can get CBD dog treats from room service to help with traveling anxiety.
5. Fairlane Hotel
Classic and luxurious, the Fairlane Hotel offers fitness facilities, valet parking, and local snacks in the mini-bar of each standard room. Large windows in each room overlook the city.
Only a limited number of rooms are pet-friendly, so be sure to call in advance to snatch one up! You can stay with up to two pets for a fee of $75 each.
According to Yelp reviewer E.B., “pets cannot be left unattended in the room” and must be kept in a crate or carrier if you’re not around, which might present a challenge for pets who aren’t crate trained.
6. The Union Station Nashville Yards
Union Station Nashville Yards was formerly a train terminal, and it keeps that charm through its historical décor and one-of-a-kind rooms. With plenty of shops, restaurants, and venues within walking distance, this is a fantastic place to stay with your bundle of joy.
The hotel allows two pets up to 65 pounds for a fee of $100 per pet. This is perfect for those with large dogs who have trouble traveling due to lower weight limits.
7. The Hermitage Hotel
The classic Hermitage hotel is complete with stunning architecture and over one hundred years of Nashville history. Visit the café or restaurant inside the hotel’s walls just floors away from your pampered pet or go out and explore the music scene.
A lack of restrictions on weight or number of pets makes this hotel one of the best places for pet parents who have large dogs or multiple fur-babies. However, Hermitage does note that they may refuse pets who show aggression or misbehavior, such as peeing in the hotel or jumping on staff.
They charge a $150 fee per pet.
