Opening Date: Early 2018
A luxe hotel bringing back the style and personality of the 1970’s, the Fairlane Hotel is an 81-room boutique hotel tucked away in downtown Nashville, steps from the action on Broadway. Retro-modern décor evokes a “business in the front, party in the back” personality that draws in the traveler who prefers timeless over trendy and (only the good kind of) posh without pretense. A buzzing lobby becomes the hub for power lunches and after work drinks, anchored by a delicatessen and Union Teller Coffee Counter, while Ellington’s 4th floor terrace restaurant and bar (concepted by Oliver Hospitality) is the classic power lunch and dinner spot for those in the know. A 4,000 square foot penthouse is a destination in itself, decked to the nines with 1970’s flair and a wraparound terrace, providing the best views of Music City.
